Shipping apps automate and simplify the shipping process for businesses. Quality apps can connect with and download shipping rates from multiple carriers. They allow you to create shipping labels, packing lists, and reports.
Apps such as ShipWorks sync with QuickBooks Online, and you can sync with Premier or Enterprise software using a special connection app. There are also apps focused on specific shipping issues. For example, the Import Tracking feature special fields for adding ports, destinations, bills of lading, duties, and other import related information, and it also syncs to QuickBooks Online.
Syncing these apps with your small business accounting software reduces accounting errors and saves time, as you no longer have to worry about manual entry.
