Kewill Releases Kewill Flagship 2.1

Kewill has released Kewill Flagship Version 2.1, expanding the capabilities of its Enterprise Shipping Management Solution, and demonstrating significant strides in both technology and functionality as the first of a series of Kewill Flagship versions to be released in 2007.

Kewill Flagship version 2.1 functionality enhancements include optimized Parcel/LTL rate and service shopping, extended support for hazardous materials, improved user interface and desktop shipping functionality that will bring the benefit of distribution center rate and increase control for office employees' shipping.

Unique in the marketplace, the ability to optimize carrier and service selection between LTL and Parcel carriers is a significant advance. Designed and built in response to changes in the ways Kewill customers were processing higher volume shipping needs, Kewill Flagship 2.1 provides clear visibility to the price and transit time implications from a selection of either LTL or parcel shipping, and the ability to operationally shift volumes as needs dictate.

This new release also supports hazardous material shipping using all major domestic parcel carriers ground and air services, including LTL ground handling.

Extending shipping management beyond the warehouse, Kewill Flagship version 2.1 includes a desktop shipping workflow, enabling every employee in an organization to intelligently access carrier service and rate selection criteria used by their corporate distribution organization. This expanded access to shipping information and label generation directly addresses challenges associated with rogue parcel shipping spend that occurs outside the purvue of mailroom management, and is estimated to cost organizations as much as 8% of their annual shipping budget.

On the technology side, version 2.1 has extended configuration capabilities for both Distribution Centers and Carriers, enabling easier and faster deployment, integration and support. It also provides enhancements for user roles and profiles, extending the ability to support multiple levels of users within the organization.
