Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry, and Parcelcast, a provider of intelligent shipping technology, today announced that the Parcelcast cloud-based multicarrier shipping application is now fully integrated with Aleyant’s flagship Pressero web-to-print solution. Through this integration, order and production information is seamlessly transferred from Pressero to Parcelcast, allowing shipping personnel to quickly prepare orders to be shipped, often in just a few seconds. Once an order is ready for shipping and all items as well as the job ticket and pick list have arrived in the Shipping Department, staff can reconcile the shipment with the associated paperwork to ensure error-free shipping. Parcelcast’s multicarrier shipping function connects with all major carriers as well as more than 25 LTL freight carriers, all in one system, making it easy to choose the most appropriate carrier, based on cost, customer preference and other criteria.
“We are excited to have this integration in place,” said Chris Guggenheim, Parcelcast’s CEO. “Aleyant, through its many partnerships and other integrations, has established a respected name for itself in the world of print ecommerce, along with a large customer base that can now also benefit from the robust shipping capabilities offered by Parcelcast in an affordable and seamlessly integrated workflow. Working with Aleyant’s developers on this project was a great experience. They are a talented team that is dedicated to delivering exceptional project management and support, on time and within budget. We look forward to other opportunities to work together for the benefit of our mutual customers.”
Once the order has been reconciled in Shipping, Parcelcast allows shipping personnel to then select the correct approved packaging from the packaging library, generate the shipping label and ship the order. Once the shipment has been processed, all relevant data, including tracking information is passed back to Pressero to close out the order, and an email notification is sent with a clickable tracking link to the customer to allow them to track their own orders. This enables companies to efficiently handle the larger number of small orders that most companies are processing today.
Aleyant’s flagship web-to-print software, Pressero, is one of the most complete web-to-print systems within its price class, providing many features its competitors do not offer. Pressero is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customized to the needs of print shops as well as their clients. This includes ‘mobile-first’ responsive designs for branded sites to ensure proper display regardless of the viewing device being used.
“With this partnership, we are continuing to expand the number of standard and highly functional integrations we offer Pressero customers,” comments Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President. “We are pleased to be working with Parcelcast, and to be able to deliver a turnkey deployment to our customers that has the integration up and running in hours, not weeks or months.”
