Austin, TEXAS— FEB 06 2014 Newgistics and ShipStation Form Strategic Partnership to Streamline Shipping and Order Processing for Etailers With both the holiday shopping season and the subsequent wave of returns in the rearview mirror, it’s time to start planning for the 2014 holiday season. Savvy retailers know that holiday planning starts in February, when the lessons learned from the previous holiday season are still fresh in their minds. Preparing a holiday 2014 strategy can require looking at nearly every area of the retailer’s business. By starting now, retailers have plenty of time to implement and test technologies and tactics so that when November and December roll around, they’re ready. “It takes a lot of planning and testing to properly prepare for the holidays, because any changes retailers make to their web sites have cascading effects that impact their performance downstream,” says Elizabeth Scott, director of technical services for Tenzing Managed IT Services, a provider of hosting solutions for e-retailers. “Identifying the areas where upgrades are needed now means retailers can use the selling seasons leading up to the holidays to audition and fine-tune those improvements.” Newgistics, a leading provider of end-to-end e-commerce solutions for top retailers and brands, today announced a strategic partnership with ShipStation, the leading web-based shipping solution for online merchants. This integration will save Newgistics customers time and money by streamlining and automating shipping operations.

In addition, the flexibly priced ShipStation application automatically retrieves and consolidates order information from over 40 sales channels including marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Newegg and Etsy, and e-commerce shopping cart platforms such as Shopify, Volusion, Magento and Bigcommerce.
