Next Generation USPS Labels Benefit Holiday Shippers with End-To-End Tracking, Accurate Delivery

Sample USPS First Class Package IMpb Label From Shipping Software Powered by CPS

FORT MYERS, FL – OCT 24, 2013 – Today, Harvey Software Inc. outlined important items USPS shippers should have in place for the upcoming holiday season to insure the best, most successful shipping with the USPS.  USPS barcode technology has changed substantially over the last few years.  If a company’s shipping software does not incorporate the latest changes, USPS packages may not be able to be tracked this holiday season and delivery can be delayed.  If your shipping software has kept up-to-date with all the changes, then you are well-positioned to receive all the discounts and greatly upgraded tracking capabilities USPS provides.

“When a USPS package moves from your business to your customer, it passes through many hands as well as several different types of equipment.  Older style USPS labels prevent packages from being processed optimally through the various USPS package processing equipment, which means less than the best handling during the busiest, most important time of year for many companies,” stated Bert Hamilton, President and CEO of Harvey Software.  “The newest USPS IMpb technology and label requirements include several important items to insure that services used for package processing are easily recognized by package handlers and packages are tracked  properly.  With the IMpb technology and new labeling requirements now mandatory for accurate tracking and to receive special pricing, their benefits can no longer be ignored.  Without using properly formatted labels and IMpb technology, packages could be delayed due to time-consuming special handling required for successful delivery,” explained Mr. Hamilton.

“Maybe most important, the new USPS tracking capabilities alone make the new IMpb barcodes invaluable when it comes to making sure customers receive their holiday orders on time.  In addition, use of the new IMpb technology provides you with the ability to track your packages and take action if there are any delivery issues.  If you want your packages to be delivered on time, at the best price and with the ability to be tracked, the IMpb barcodes and new label formats should be used for every USPS package…and who doesn’t want that?” observed Mr. Hamilton.  “All of Harvey Software’s current Powered by CPS shipping software fully supports the new IMpb barcodes and new labeling requirements for USPS package services and is fully carrier certified.  The USPS shipping software solutions in our multi-carrier CPS Powered shipping software provide options for both On-Line Internet Postage and USPS eVS package processing.   If your current shipping software does not support the new IMpb barcode and label format requirements, we highly recommend you find a shipping system that does so as soon as possible before the holiday crunch.  We know CPS Powered solutions can help,” concluded Mr. Hamilton.

For complete details to determine if you are ready for the holiday shipping when shipping USPS packages visit the free Harvey Software Shipping Blog article titled “What USPS Barcode Should Be Used for Packages to Insure Holiday Delivery?”.  This article gives you several valuable resources to determine if you are ready for the holiday season.

Harvey Software Celebrates 30 Years of Multi-Carrier Shipping Software Innovation


FORT MYERS, FL – October 17, 2013 – This year, Harvey Software celebrates 30 years of developing and delivering high quality shipping software solutions, including its current flagship line of multiple carrier shipping software products that are Powered by CPS.  Millions of packages are shipped daily with shipping software Powered by CPS with clients saving on every package sent out the door, while also increasing their sales and market size.

“When we began the company in 1983 with a DOS shell application which became a very popular product, we found ourselves needing a shipping solution to get our products to our customers.  At the time, automated shipping systems were generally based on computer systems larger than the PC.  Since our specialty was PC-based software, we were one of the first companies to develop our own PC-based shipping software system,” said Bert Hamilton, founder, President and CEO of Harvey Software.  “Even as our original DOS shell market was replaced very early on by advances in computer operating systems, including the introduction of Microsoft Windows, the carriers showed a real interest in our PC-based shipping software solutions.  Although our initial focus was developing shipping software for ourselves, we quickly saw that we should shift our focus from the PC utility market to supplying shipping software for small package retailers and manufacturers.  That turned out to be a great decision as our CPS shipping software products became the tail wagging the dog,” explained Mr. Hamilton.  “We never looked back.  Once we focused on the high volume shipping industry it became apparent that many more new tools were needed.  For example, we identified and developed tools like SHIP eLERTs, RateBots, Smart RateBots, Flat Rate Shipping Calculator, BestWay Calculator, the Automator, Background Importing and many other cutting edge solutions to help companies both large and small to ship faster, increase their sales and do it all at the best possible price.  This industry has been good to us with over 35,000 installs to date and I am really happy we have such loyal clients, dedicated business partners and a great staff.  We look back to celebrate 30 successful years even as we look ahead to bringing the best in shipping software solutions to clients in the future," concluded Mr. Hamilton.

USPS eVS Electronic Postal Manifesting Added to Multi-Carrier Shipping Software


FORT MYERS, FL – September 12, 2013 – Today, Harvey Software, Inc. announced that its best-selling multiple carrier shipping software, CPSLogic™, now provides electronic manifesting for US Postal Service package shipping using the Electronic Verification System (eVS).  USPS eVS allows high-volume package shippers and package consolidators to document and pay postage using electronic manifest files, which are then transmitted over the Internet to a Postal Service™ database.  eVS is designed to make post office shipping easy for high-volume package shippers.

“eVS mirrors our paper manifest process, but does so electronically, so this is a great step forward for shippers using CPSLogic, as well as a great addition to our product offerings,” stated Bert Hamilton, President and CEO of Harvey Software, Inc.  “Shippers benefit greatly since eVS is a much simpler process in so many ways, compared to our former paper manifest for USPS shipping,” said Mr. Hamilton.  “The initial setup and approval process is quicker, the reconciling of shipments by the Post Office occurs monthly instead of daily and submitting packages for delivery has fewer time constraints.  And, a huge bonus is that paperwork is eliminated because electronic data transmissions replace hardcopy manifests, postage statements and adjustment worksheets, with postage easily paid via an electronic deduction from the shipper's postage payment account,” explained Mr. Hamilton.  “Shipping with eVS can be added to any CPSLogic shipping software program, so shippers can now take advantage of both of the best and easiest ways to ship with the USPS – choosing from either eVS or shipping with Internet postage,” stated Mr. Hamilton.  “It takes a higher volume of shipping to qualify for eVS, so we are happy to be able to provide Post Office shippers both of the best methods to ship as they need it.  Since the Post Office imposes no additional cost to ship to residential addresses, companies, especially B-to-C businesses, now see an easy way to use Post Office services that are more and more important to their shipping operation and bottom line.” concluded Mr. Hamilton.

USPS eVS support adds another great option for high volume shippers using CPSLogic.  For a complete listing of all that is supported when you add USPS eVS to your CPSLogic shipping software visit http://www.PostalShippingSoftware.com/.

Multi-Carrier Shipping Software Will Help Improve Business Processes

Several features within CPS shipping software will help improve your business processes.
FORT MYERS, FL — April 3, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software shared information on how a multi-carrier shipping system can improve business processes within companies that ship through small parcel carriers. Harvey Software’s Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software contains several tools that will streamline the shipping process into a smooth workflow. Integration of the shipping software with accounting, OMS, and ERP solutions cuts down on manual data entry. RateBots™ define business rules for shipping and ensure that management decisions are carried out package by package. Reporting features allow managers to reconcile the shipping invoice against what is expected. All of these speed up work in the shipping department and mean that employees can focus on other tasks.

“Shipping is complicated for the carriers, but it does not have to be for the local business owner or warehouse manager. The best multi-carrier shipping software contains tools that will automate many manual functions within the shipping department,” said Cary Cobb, Director of Sales and Marketing at Harvey Software. “Our customers who use order management systems connect to that data through their company’s network – they don’t need to enter shipping data manually. Many are able to scan a pick ticket, instantly call up the customer’s shipping data, and print the label for the best-choice carrier for that package within seconds,” continued Mr. Cobb. “Because our RateBots define carrier selection rules, a shipper can define ‘two day express’ as a shipping method. Any time a customer wants to ship express, they would define that RateBot as the shipping method, and our software chooses the best rate without further user input. Create different RateBots that include different carriers, ground and overnight services; your shipping employees will not have to navigate among the myriad of shipping methods available,” said Mr. Cobb. “From a simple shipping workflow standpoint, CPS handles the computer work on its own, leaving employees more time to pick orders and pack boxes,” explained Mr. Cobb.

“Once daily processing is operating efficiently, a manager can check reports at the end of the day, end of the month, or define a different time period to review. Some reports look at individual package records while others handle broader shipping ranges. Use these to help calculate flat rate shipping costs and to make sure the carriers are billing appropriately,” continued Mr. Cobb. “There are other ways to improve the process within the shipping department. We’d be happy to speak to anyone who has more specific questions for their business’s challenges,” concluded Mr. Cobb.

Tracking Email Increases Transparency for Businesses with a Multi-Carrier Shipping System

SHIP eLERT tracking email helps customers identify both the package location and your company brand
FORT MYERS, FL — March 13, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software released advantages and features of its SHIP eLERT® tracking email system. The SHIP eLERT system provides users of Harvey Software’s Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software a way to send a unified tracking email for FedEx, SpeeDee, UPS, and USPS packages. Because this tracking email is from the CPS customer’s email address instead of a carrier’s, a CPS customer has the opportunity to increase its brand exposure in their own customers’ email Inbox. In this way, CPS shipping software also assists in improving brand identification and customer communication.

“Consumers obviously need to know where their packages are after they purchase. Harvey Software’s SHIP eLERT notification system provides a link to view tracking status of packages shipped through CPS, regardless of which carrier shipped that package. The link goes to our proprietary tracking page which then reads the tracking number and takes the user to a package status web page. SHIP eLERTs are also accessible from most any mobile device with email capability,” said Cary Cobb, Harvey Software’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “In addition to the need for sharing tracking status, there’s a branding opportunity any time you communicate with customers. Our customers email tracking info from their own company email addresses, reminding shoppers where they purchased an item when they are checking on an order’s shipping status. We give our customers control over the subject line as well. If there’s a message they want to get out to their most recent customers, they have some flexibility in doing so as compared to carrier email notifications,” continued Mr. Cobb. “As more and more competition enters the online marketplace, it becomes even more important to promote your company’s brand. Sending email from your own addresses is one piece of an overall customer communication strategy. A tracking email is also a way to reference purchases – consumers may be looking through their email to remember where they bought a particular item, and a tracking email is an obvious marker that is easier to find than purchase confirmations. When that tracking email comes from a company’s own email address, the company increases its brand visibility, ideally leading to more purchases,” concluded Mr. Cobb.

Time-Saving Features Available Inside Multi-Carrier Shipping Software from Harvey Software

Read About Ways That CPS Can Save Time in the Shipping Department
FORT MYERS, FL — February 28, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software released ways for businesses to save time in the shipping department. Harvey Software’s Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software has features that streamline the shipping process so that employees can work on other tasks. The features available within CPS increase efficiency while also reducing shipping costs. Harvey Software encourages shippers to prepare their shipping systems now to immediately realize the benefits and prepare for increased order volume.

“Shipping software can be the smooth last step in a fulfillment cycle, or it can be software that puts up a daily fight when trying to get orders out the door,” said Cary Cobb, Director of Digital Marketing at Harvey Software. “Ideally, shipping software reliably connects to the fulfillment or customer management system. With just a few keystrokes to complete each shipment, businesses are able to eliminate such errors as incorrectly choosing a carrier, shipping to a non-existent address, or choosing an unnecessarily more expensive service that costs a business money,” explained Mr. Cobb. “A new user can learn the basics of shipping with CPS in minutes. Once the weight comes in from the scale and the preferred shipping method is chosen, CPS prints carrier approved labels and is ready for the next shipment. It can be adapted to a variety of serial-based printers and scales, and the connection to an order management system includes the ability to write-back completed shipping information,” continued Mr. Cobb.

“Because CPS can be adapted to such a variety of applications, getting a shipping label is no longer a bottleneck in the fulfillment process. CPS is simple enough to be operated by a single person shipping parcels out of a home-based business. It is also versatile enough to be customized for the needs of a medium sized shipper, and with automation features found only in much more expensive solutions, CPS can operate on large-scale enterprise applications with or without a user present at the computer. With that kind of versatility, CPS shipping software serves a variety of companies’ shipping needs,” said Mr. Cobb. “We focus a lot on how CPS saves money, but the time it saves is just as important, if not more so. Harvey Software encourages businesses to check their shipping software and make sure it is optimized for maximum efficiency,” concluded Mr. Cobb.

Multi-Carrier Shipping System Integrates Third Party Parcel Insurance Options for Shipping Savings

Use Integrated Third Party Insurance Options For Additional Shipping Savings
FORT MYERS, FL — February 22, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software provided detailed information about alternate parcel insurance options integrated into its multi-carrier Computerized Parcel System (CPS™). By integrating these third party insurance options into CPS, shippers can insure packages using one of the alternate insurance companies, providing shippers with package insurance protection when needed, but at a significant savings compared to similar protection when purchased directly from the parcel carriers.

“We’ve seen increased interest in third party parcel insurance recently because shippers continue to look for ways to cut costs without sacrificing service. Most third party insurers charge significantly less for package insurance than the carriers do. By aggregating those savings on a large scale, shippers will realize cost savings without any reduction in service quality,” said Cary Cobb, Harvey Software’s Director of Digital Marketing. “In many multi-carrier shipping systems, a user may need to use a separate web site or program to use these third party insurance services. At Harvey Software, we recognize the need to save time on this process, so we integrated multiple options of third party parcel insurance, including PIP, Shipsurance, and U-PIC, into our main interface. Processing alternate parcel insurance is part of the normal End-of-Day processing in CPS, so shippers have all of the data and reporting needed for each alternate insurance company. Integrated third party insurance processing is another way that CPS makes it easier to ship efficiently and achieves the goal of saving money and time,” concluded Mr. Cobb.

Harvey Software Inc. Reaffirms Partnership with Advanced Business Systems

Advanced Business Systems and Harvey Software Have Renewed Their Partnership
FORT MYERS, FL — February 16, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software, Inc. and Advanced Business Systems, Inc. announced the renewal of their partnership. Advanced Business Systems makes seamless integration of business systems a reality for many companies across the Midwest as well as providing mailing and shipping hardware for their customers.

Together, the two companies offer their mutual customers the ability to quickly process their package shipments for the lowest cost possible. In addition, because Advanced Business Systems employs a QuickBooks ProAdvisor®, they are able to support the integration between QuickBooks Pro and CPS.

“We are often asked if we supply shipping hardware. We have chosen to focus purely on providing our superior CPS shipping software, which we believe is the most versatile product in the market. When we find an excellent hardware provider, it is important to us to maintain a relationship with that company in order to completely meet some customers’ needs,” said Terry Kennedy, Harvey Software’s Vice President of Alliance Marketing. “Advanced Business Systems has been an extraordinary partner on multiple levels. Not only do they choose to use Harvey Software products for many of their customers’ needs, they keep those customers going with first level support for any technical questions that may arise. We are glad to have strong partners who are experienced with our software and able to provide on-site integration of our products, and we’re even happier that they are able to support the QuickBooks integration. We hope the partnership with Advanced Business Systems will continue for many years to come,” concluded Mr. Kennedy.

“Advanced Business Systems works to automate business processes. Our customers come to us expecting to have a more efficient workflow after we help them. We accomplish this goal for them with a combination of mailroom hardware, business software and integration expertise,” said Ron Schmal, Vice President of Advanced Business Systems. “CPS shipping software helps our customers save money on their shipping costs, and it also helps them speed up the shipping process. We help our customers to integrate this shipping software into their existing systems and help them with any questions they may have about Harvey Software’s product. The recently added ability of CPS to integrate with QuickBooks means our customers will have yet another way to connect all of their data – we’re excited that we can support that integration service as well. We’re glad to continue this partnership and know that together we’ll be able to help our mutual customers save both money and time,” concluded Mr. Schmal.

Harvey Software Releases Update for its Multi-Carrier Shipping Software CPS

Update CPS Shipping Software Now to Make Sure You Have Accurate Shipping Rates
FORT MYERS, FL — January 24, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software announced the latest update to its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software. In this update are the latest rates from the parcel carriers FedEx and the United States Postal Service (USPS). In addition, new rates for the DYMO Endicia Internet postage are also included. These rates took effect on Sunday, January 22nd, as did changes in federal law for how customs documents are prepared for manifested international shipments. CPS customers can see the complete update notes in the Notices and Updates section of their On-Line Support. A new Express Mail Flat Rate Box, offered by both Endicia and the USPS directly, is now available for both domestic and international shipping as well as a Priority Mail Regional Rate “C” box, which enables flat rate shipping up to 25 lbs.

“We encourage our customers to update their CPS shipping software as soon as possible. This ensures that they see accurate rating for FedEx and USPS going forward – UPS rates already took effect on January 2nd, 2012. Also, we encourage our customers to enable the automatic updating of CPS in program setup – updates are only a few times a year and are concentrated during this December/January timeframe. Not only that, but the rate shopping features that form the backbone of CPS are only effective when viewing updated shipping rates,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software. “This update is not large and is quick to install – customers can expect to be shipping again within a couple of minutes. We already released the CPS specific features in the December update, and this update is really just an update of rates for FedEx and USPS. The new services that are available from USPS and Endicia will show up in the rate shopping features just like any other service, and as always, features within the software can be set to choose the best-priced service automatically,” continued Mr. Sansone. “Barring additional changes from the carriers, this update should be the last of the season, and customers can expect these rates to stay the same for the remainder of 2012. Of course, the fuel surcharges from FedEx and UPS are still subject to change monthly as usual, but this change does not require a significant update of our shipping software,” concluded Mr. Sansone.

Multi-Carrier Shipping Software Saves Time in the Shipping Department

Many features available within the CPS computerized Parcel System will save time in the shipping department.
FORT MYERS, FL — January 11, 2012 — Today, Harvey Software released information describing how its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software will save time in a company’s shipping operations. The CPS multi-carrier shipping system has been refined and developed over more than 25 years to be the streamlined, efficient shipping software that companies demand for their shipping departments. Whether a company is shipping 10 or 10,000 packages a day, CPS shipping software will save time in the shipping department and increase productivity of shipping employees.

“Even just using the manual entry features of CPS, a user can quickly enter the necessary shipping information. Look us up on YouTube and see how fast a user can work with the manual entry function. A basic shipping label can be prepared using only the destination address, weight, and desired carrier service,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software, Inc. “The selection of the best shipping service is the heart of CPS, and users see the rates for multiple carriers simultaneously. Because CPS is certified by the carriers and shows accurate rating, including accessorial charges and fuel surcharges for every package, the customer knows they get accurate rates and can be confident their bills will reflect this,” continued Mr. Sansone. “Our users save even more time when they use optional services available within CPS like the SHIP eLERT tracking email, sent from the user’s email address, notifying customers their packages are on the way and cutting down the calls to customer service asking if a package is on the way. Third party parcel insurance from several vendors is also available within the CPS user interface, eliminating the need to leave CPS to obtain these money saving services. Available address verification ensures the shipment is going to a verified US address,” explained Mr. Sansone.

“Because CPS is an ODBC compliant application it can be linked to order management applications. Not only can shipping information be imported into the shipping software, completed shipping data like the carrier used, shipping cost and tracking number can be written back to the order system. Time is saved on customer service as well as in the shipping department,” said Mr. Sansone. “With CPS selecting the best shipping service automatically for any number of packages, completed shipping data being returned to the host order system, shipping notifications sent for every package, address checking at the shipping station instead of searching elsewhere - no matter what the customer needs, CPS shipping software can save time in almost any shipping warehouse,” concluded Mr. Sansone.

How Using a Multi-Carrier Shipping System Helps Businesses Go Green

FORT MYERS, FL — December 28, 2011 — Today, Harvey Software, Inc. released methods to save energy in the shipping department with third party multiple carrier shipping systems. The Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping efficiency features bring bonuses of saving energy and money while shipping packages. CPS can be a part of a company’s “Go Green” New Year’s resolution.

“Ground shipping services are better for the environment. Airplanes use a lot more fuel per pound-shipped than trucks. Of course, if your package needs to be there overnight, you don’t have much of a choice. But with the carriers guaranteeing delivery within one or two days in a large radius around most origins, ground service can take the place of one and two day services in many cases,” said Bob Sansone, Harvey Software’s Director of Sales. “Someone could look up transit times for packages and make this work with any current system, but if you need to know quickly, multi-carrier shipping software can look it up for you. Using the exclusive CPS Smart RateBots, a shipper user will know in seconds whether or not ground services can take the place of express services,” continued Mr. Sansone. “A business can make these choices ahead of time, then apply a rule to all shipped packages to use ground services if they give equivalent delivery times to one and two day services needed. We have customers who have three or four warehouses spread around the country. Assuming they have supply in stock for all items ordered, they can guarantee two-day delivery to at least 90% of the continental U.S using ground services.”

“Automatically choosing air or express services for two-day delivery is a potential waste of energy. With a little bit of pre-planning, a business can set itself up to make smart choices for every express or air delivery,” said Mr. Sansone. “We hope that as businesses make their New Year’s resolutions they will consider reducing their carbon footprint and their shipping costs with Smart RateBots.”

Harvey Software Releases Latest Update: National Carrier Updates and Product Improvements

FORT MYERS, FL — December 27, 2011 — Harvey Software, Inc. today released the annual National Carrier Updates to its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software. Included in these updates are the latest 2012 rate tables for FedEx, SpeeDee, and UPS as well as several other product improvements and new features. All CPS users will need the updates in order for their license of the software to work correctly. The update is available beginning 11am today, December 27, 2011 and will remain optional for one (1) week. On or after Tuesday, January 2nd, 2012, this update becomes critical and essential for CPS to function properly.

“We’ve been doing the updates for years now, and we’ve found it works out well for our customers to let them complete the update at their own pace. We provide a window so that if there’s priority shipping that needs to take place, the update can be delayed for a few hours or days. The time needed to apply the update is minimal, and businesses will typically be able to ship as usual in just a few minutes,” said Dan Turbeville, COO at Harvey Software. “We would like to emphasize the importance of completing this update this week, since next week the timing will not be so flexible. 2011 rates expire this weekend, and since there are some pretty significant changes to the rates, our CPS users will want to make sure they are in compliance with carrier requirements by completing the update. We know that many of our customers appreciate the rate shopping features within CPS, like the BestWay Calculator, RateBots, and Smart RateBots. The National Carrier Updates ensure the accuracy of those rates and that all rate shopping features continue to save our clients’ money,” concluded Mr. Turbeville.

Multi-Carrier Shipping Software Helps Shipper Make Smart Free Shipping Offers

By taking advantage of reporting features in CPS by Harvey Software, a user can plan free shipping offers to increase sales and increase profits

FORT MYERS, FL — December 21, 2011 — Harvey Software, Inc. today described how its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) can help Internet retailers determine when to offer free shipping for orders. Free shipping is solidified in its place in the online market. With more than 60% of online orders this year placed with free shipping, this trend shows no signs of reversal. Major online players like Amazon have leveraged free shipping for years, and other sites have adapted to this standard. Going forward, it is easy to see an online market where free shipping is more or less required for retailers to stay competitive.

“Free shipping has become the norm in Internet shopping. Customers expect to see it and retailers need to be prepared to offer it,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software. “There are multiple reasons why free shipping increases sales, not least of which is avoiding the ‘sticker shock’ of seeing shipping charges added in at the end of a sale. Customers want to know the full price of items as they shop. Passing along shipping charges near the end of the transaction often means there is no transaction. Even better, free shipping introduces the word ‘free’ into marketing efforts,” continued Mr. Sansone. “Free shipping also places your business in the national market. Your products cost the same for customers in any part of the United States. Without it, you become a regional option with potential customers limited to only those located around you. If you owned a brick and mortar store, you wouldn’t be checking addresses and charging more for those who live further away. So why would you do this in an online store?” asked Mr. Sansone.

Retailers who are interested in making free shipping offers might be intimidated by the perceived difficulties of making such offers. That retailer will want to know shipping costs, averaged by weight and by item, and they will want separate line items for ground, two-day, and overnight services. A large portion of the work can be done automatically with a multi-carrier shipping system, by running reports on the shipping history. By knowing average shipping costs, retailers will know the costs that need to be covered in order to make “free” shipping offers.

“Offering free shipping is a challenge for today’s online sellers. When you study the prices of popular websites that offer free shipping, you will find they work the shipping charges into the cost of the items. Shipping is not ‘free’ to the retailer, they have just figured out a way to average those charges into the cost of the product,” said Mr. Sansone. “This is where multi-carrier shipping software like our CPS can really help. There are reporting features available to provide shipping cost averages for each carrier and service for any time period. Using those shipping cost averages a company can then determine when and how it can make free shipping offers. When customers are not ambushed by surprise shipping charges in their shopping cart, research shows they are far more likely to complete the transaction,” concluded Mr. Sansone.

Multi-Carrier Shipping System Developer Harvey Software Announces National Carrier Update Schedule

FORT MYERS, FL — December 20, 2012 — Harvey Software, Inc. announced today it will release the National Carrier Update of its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software, which will take effect on January 2, 2012. This newest version of CPS includes shipping features developed throughout 2011, plus updates to the carriers’ rate tables and improvements to existing features. The National Carrier Update will be available for download beginning December 27th at 11:00am EST and is distributed to all existing CPS users at no charge. This update is required for all current CPS users with any version of the CPS. Since CPS is multiple carrier shipping software, the update helps ensure that all CPS users are in compliance with the carriers’ requirements and that the rates reported in CPS are accurate and current.

“CPS requires updates annually because of changes to the carrier rate tables, shipping labels, data upload requirements and new service additions. We also take the opportunity to include new features as well as improvements to existing features while we update carrier related components,” said Terry Kennedy, VP of Alliance Marketing at Harvey Software. “We do want to emphasize the importance of this update to all of our customers. Since a central CPS feature is to shop rates among the carriers, it is essential those rates be current and accurate. We allow a week-long window to accommodate companies’ holiday schedules, and we design the update to be easy to download and install,” concluded Mr. Kennedy.

“Many other shipping software makers charge to update their software. We don’t. The advertised price of CPS includes these updates as part of scheduled maintenance, just as we include Internet and phone support at no extra charge,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software. “We don’t nickel and dime our customers for essential features of the software they purchased. We continue to offer unparalleled services to our customers, including providing the updates on time every year. If anyone has questions regarding this update, we invite them to read more about it in their online CPS support notifications,” concluded Mr. Sansone.

Hands-Free Shipping Increases Profits for Companies Shipping with a Multi-Carrier Shipping System

Companies with needs for hands-free shipping software can ship automatically with a feature with a multi-carrier shipping system by Harvey Software.
FORT MYERS, FL — December 15, 2011 — Harvey Software, Inc., released information today describing The Automator®, the hands-free shipment processing feature included in its Computerized Parcel System (CPS™) shipping software. Whether shipping one package at a time or a group of packages, the Automator allows a business to ship without any operator required at the shipping computer. Even though it is a hands-off operation, the CPS Automator continues to select the best shipping method for each package by rate shopping between all of the major U.S. carriers according to what the user wants. A company can rest assured knowing that they are getting the best rates possible for each individual package.

“We first developed with the Automator as a security feature, believe it or not. A client wanted to be able to keep the shipping information from being edited by employees to insure 100% accuracy and security. Originally, this was applied with the computer itself locked in a closet with the employees having access only to the completed shipping labels and packages,” said Bob Sansone, Director of Sales at Harvey Software, Inc. “A great side effect of the method we came up with for that particular customer’s security needs was the ability to ship an entire batch of packages with no person necessary at the shipping computer. We saw the potential for this feature for our other customers, and The Automator became a standard feature of CPS shipping software contained in every CPS license we sell,” continued Mr. Sansone.

“It’s easy to see how this could save lots of time in the shipping department. CPS is quick even when shipping information has to be entered manually, but between ODBC integration and automatic rate shopping made possible with the unique to CPS RateBots® and Smart RateBots® features, it’s possible that a person is necessary at the computer only to press enter several times. We took away those slowdown factors and let the software go at full speed,” explained Mr. Sansone. “Basically, the speed at which a printer is capable of printing becomes the only limitation to how fast the packages can be processed and ready to be picked up by the carriers. We know that many companies are interested in this type of shipping automation. Ultimately, a company can increase their profits with a feature like this by increasing productivity and guaranteeing accuracy,” concluded Mr. Sansone.
