Spotlight on: E-Ship and the FedEx Compatible Program

If you are using or considering using FedEx in your shipping operations, you’ll be happy to know that Lanham Associates’ E-Ship solution has been part of the FedEx Compatible Program since 1997. In order to maintain certification in this program, we dedicate a man-year, each year, to meet specific FedEx shipping requirements, go through rigorous reviews, and attain our annual certification, making E-Ship FedEx ready for Microsoft Dynamics NAV versions 5.0 through the latest version. Today we are working on our NAV Tenerife version, anticipated to be released late in 2017, in conjunction with Microsoft’s NAV 2018 release scheduled in that timeframe.

What this means for our customers is that they can boost their shipping efficiency without reinventing their business processes. Customers can get all of the benefits of E-Ship, NAV, and FedEx all in one place, inside their business system. E-Ship’s strengths in multiple packing processes, package level detail, automated ASN’s for Lanham EDI, integrating multiple LTL and package carriers, BOL functionality, label formatting, scales interface, email and automated links to the U.S. Government’s international shipping website are all there in conjunction with FedEx’s approved shipping solution.

Because E-Ship supports FedEx, as well as all the other popular package carriers, in a single user interface housed inside a company’s NAV ERP system, there is no need to go to individual carriers’ websites to get pricing information and then manually transfer information to the sales order. Your shipping information is always available inside your business system, and the whole “sales through shipping process” is accomplished seamlessly inside your business system with your familiar user interface.

The FedEx Compatible certification provides E-Ship customers with FedEx designated capabilities that enable them to eliminate the costly complexity of running multiple systems, retraining employees on new programs and processes, and re-entering information. All of your FedEx shipping data is also natively available inside your business system for easy lookup and reporting. Before long, all this saved time adds up to real money.

E-Ship available as a Lanham NAV Extension

For NAV users that are concerned about upgrades with solutions embedded in NAV, you will be glad to know that E-Ship is now available as a Lanham NAV Extension, making it easily lifted out of NAV to simplify your NAV upgrade, and then just as easily replaced after a NAV upgrade. This process also makes it very simple to upgrade E-Ship, even if you are not upgrading NAV at the same time.

We know how challenging shipping operations can be. We’re proud to invest in the FedEx Compatible program, so that we can give you easy access to the shipping and delivery services you need from the software you use every day with Lanham’s seamlessly simple E-Ship solution.
