A Myriad of Options for Shipping – from Simple to Complex
XM Symphony’s Shipping Management Software pulls through all the weights associated with products in Sage ERP, which can then be passed to shipping carriers such as UPS and FedEx to calculate shipping costs in real time. If you have a low number of SKU’s or their sizes and weights are all similar, then you can have shipping as a ‘non-stock item’ in Sage ERP and set a predetermined rate for Shipping. Using the Shipping Cost administration feature the option of calculating shipping cost based on value or to provide free shipping for orders in excess of a certain dollar amount is provided. For more complex shipping requirements an administrator can add carton sizes and carton prices which can be included in the calculation of shipping charges. Carrier tables can also be imported to XM Symphony.
Shipment tracking numbers can be pulled from Sage ERP, displayed within XM Symphony with links to the carriers so customers can track shipments. XM Symphony’s Shipping Management Software can be enhanced to support customer specific shipping logic (typically at additional cost).
