About iConnect: Shipping with iAbol and ShippingEasy

iConnect Shipping works with 3rd party integration companies like ShippingEasy to allow for shipping from FedEx, UPS, and Endicia accounts. When an SAP document is ready to ship, you are able to push the document details to the ShippingEasy portal where a list of open documents to ship will be displayed. After processing each shipment, shipping labels are printed either from the Web Service portal or SAP itself, allowing you to complete the shipment from start to finish. You can view tracking numbers, tracking status, and shipping costs directly in the SAP marketing documents.
