SHIPWIRE PLATFORM
New Features! Introducing a new Account Dashboard and Warehouse view

July 1, 2010

Your Shipwire account just got a whole lot easier to use. On your next account login, you should notice a number of changes, including:

Updated Dashboard – This re-designed dashboard makes it infinitely easier to find the key information you need to see in your account right when you login.  Color coded "pods" break up the information into logical chunks that are easy to digest: covering account usage, alerts, and order activity.  Your order activity is conveniently summarized in tables that provide quick visibility on shipping order activity, back-ordered inventory, etc. Click on the screen shots to zoom in and have a look.

Warehouses View – How many times have you wanted to have a quick look at your business activity by warehouse?  The new Warehouses view now gives you that, providing you with a detailed breakdown of all open orders by warehouse – for example: it includes a quick snapshot of all orders on hold, by type of hold. It also provides a convenient point of access to other warehouse-related activities such as reviewing inventory levels, uploading orders, or sending more inventory.  You can get to the Warehouses view right from your new Account Dashboard, or from the navigation under 'My Accounts->Warehouses'.

Preferred Warehouses – One small change you'll notice is that the new Dashboard and Warehouses interfaces (including where you send inventory to Shipwire) will now only show 'active' warehouses, and not all of the warehouses in the Shipwire global warehouse network. If you want to see all warehouses, or activate a specific one, simply go into your Shipping Preferences(Ship->Preferences), and check additional Preferred Warehouses.

In addition to these very visible changes, we have introduced a number of smaller enhancements with this latest release. Please spend a few minutes and let us know how these changes look to you and where you'd like us to continue improving the platform. Thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to share any feedback.
