Varsity’s Supply Chain Execution Modules for Parcel:

ShipSoft-Parcel: ShipSoft-Parcel is a complete, integrated transportation management solution that automates the entire small package shipping process. ShipSoft manages the selection of carriers, optimizes shipment pricing, and ensures label and manifesting compliance for major parcel carriers, including DHL, FedEx, UPS and the United States Postal Service. ShipSoft also performs additional value-added services such as hundredweight consolidation, document generation, maintains detailed historical information on all shipments for future reference and reporting, and acts as the controlling application for all other Varsity software modules. By providing an integrated, automated shipping solution, ShipSoft-Parcel enhances customer service, eliminates data entry and drastically reduces overall shipping costs.

ShipTalk: ShipTalk is an electronic link to third-party carriers that provides real-time communications and access to delivery status and shipment tracking information. ShipTalk provides up-to-the-minute order status, minimizes late deliveries and enables efficient supply chain management through pipeline visibility and email alerts messaging.

ShipPack: ShipPack, Varsity’s pick/pack module, captures item-level detail during the packing process and reconciles packed items against the pick ticket. ShipPack automatically generates ASN 856 (Advanced Shipment Notification), UUC 128 labels and other package documents in the format that consignees require. By providing these compliance tools, ShipPack allows customers to easily conform to consignee requirements, quickly verify accuracy of shipments and avoid routing guide penalties for non-compliance.

ShipSelect: ShipSelect automates the carrier selection process for any shipment, based on criteria such as transit time, carrier preference, cost, mode, performance, and carrier service types to select the optimal carrier. This guarantees the user chooses the optimal carrier for every shipment, while conforming to routing guide and business requirements. By performing the carrier selection process upstream, ShipSelect ensures that the customers’ shipping requirements are exactly met at the time the order is placed.

ShipAudit: ShipAudit, the industry’s first IBM i-based freight auditing solution, reconciles actual carrier invoices against anticipated costs in order to prevent payment of over-charges, duplicate bills or invalid charges. ShipAudit eliminates costly third-party audit and administrative costs by automating the entire freight bill audit process.

SpeedWeigh: SpeedWeigh works with Varsity ShipSoft to allow shippers to automatically retrieve package weight from the shipping scale. Weight is pulled into ShipSoft at the time the order number is scanned, eliminating the need for an additional get-weight barcode scan or manual entry of package weight. ShipSoft combines package weight provided by SpeedWeigh with destination, package dimensions, service type, and carrier rates to determine shipment costs. By using SpeedWeigh to eliminate the manual steps to scan or enter package weight, shippers improve accuracy and streamline shipping applications.
