Navigator SAP i-Connect

i-Connect Shipping works with ShippingEasy to allow for shipping from FedEx, UPS, and One Balance accounts.

When an SAP document is ready to ship, you'll push the document details to ShippingEasy where the document will be displayed as an unshipped order. 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.
