Epicor manifest can integrate with UPS, FedEx, and USPS, they have added other carriers like CanPar for Canadian customers. LTL Carriers can be added as well. Manifest supports international shipments and will print international paperwork (nafta, commercial invoices, HAZMAT), these forms are Crystal and are customizable.
UPS and FedEx integrate using the carriers API, USPS requires an Endicia account for billing.
Manifest supports shipping from multiple plants (called facilities) within a single company. You can also configure additional companies within Manifest. (I’ve used both configurations- yes at the same time).
Licensing is ala carte. license each carrier, international capabilities, number of workstations, sites, companies.
After working with several manifest customers, some of them have been confused about the number of workstation licenses they need, carefully review with the Manifest team.
Manifest can be difficult to install and configure, if you but this please use the Manifest team for training, install, and configuration.
If you are considering this product, review all of your shipping processes carefully, there are a few limitations in the UPS API which can be worked around if identified during the implementation process.
Quickship is a new product which is basically manifest, and supports UPS and FedEx (not sure about USPS) and is easy to configure within Epicor. I belive there is no support for international shipments. I am reviewing this product now and hope to have a full understanding soon.
The Manifest team has expanded their support team, Super Dave gets to take a breather once in while now! The rest of the team is extremely knowledgable on this product. They have been aggressive in adding functionality, I’m due for some updates from them.
