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.
