PRECISION v16.0 Details
Address Verification: Shipments with invalid addresses lead to undelivered orders, late order delivery and additional delivery fees. Precision Address Verify avoids these problems and associated costs by verifying the address before a shipment takes place, verifying addresses in Precision and from other systems.
First Mile/Last Mile Tracking: Used in conjunction with Desktop Shipping, the mailroom now has visibility into pick-up requests and deliveries, and can provide status updates for tracking. Senders and recipients gain full package tracking visibility from pick up through delivery.
Usability - Rules, Workflow and Packaged Exception Management (PEM) Configuration: Managing rules, workflow and packaging exceptions are essential to effective shipping, particularly international shipping. Precision v16.0 delivers significant enhancement in terms of rules, workflow and PEM configuration through simplified and integrated browser-based screens. The new configuration capabilities make it easy to add locations and carriers, and to grant access to users requiring the shipping information.
Carrier Network Expansion: Precision v16.0 adds 13 new carriers, many new countries of origin for existing carriers and several new services.
Trade Compliance: The new release adds browser-based partner, product and commodity level questionnaires, used to ensure that all information required by the business or by regulations is available for all relevant parties and items.
SAP integration: Precision supports integration through Web Services connectors. A new SAP connector works in two modes, Black Box and User Experience. In Black Box mode, the end user stays within the SAP application while using Precision functionality. In User Experience mode, users process the transactions in Precision and SAP receives shipping information updates.
