“With the current NRGship solution, we opened up the possibility of shipping for Mac-based business.” says Andy Knasinski, Founder and Chief Development Officer of NRG, in the press release. “Now our customers want to ship from the software they use to manage their orders. NRGship had only offered that for FileMaker Pro users in the past. But NRGship Mac Lite works without FileMaker and opens up the possibilities to integrate with native Mac applications. For example, out of the box users can ship directly from their Mac’s Address Book.”
NRG has created external integration documentation for developers and is currently working with Mac software publishers to offer software specific integration modules for Mac based Accounting, CRM, Point-of-Sale, Ecommerce and Ebay solutions.
NRGship Mac Lite has been designed for the unique needs of small Mac-based businesses who ship 5-10 packages per day, but can easily support unlimited volume. Through the application, Mac businesses can take advantage of UPS Online Tools such as UPS Tracking, UPS Rates and Service Selection, UPS Time in Transit, UPS Address Validation, and UPS Shipping.
“UPS attended MacWorld with NRG and was impressed with the quality of business software providers and the loyalty of Mac customers.” says Jordan Colletta, vice president of customer technology marketing at UPS, in the press release. “We realize Mac customers want Mac solutions. NRGship Mac Lite meets the UPS Ready standards in providing these services for the Mac user. NRG’s focus on the Mac market is specifically why NRG has been made a UPS Ready strategic provider.”
NRGship Mac Lite will be available in the first quarter of 2009. Customers will be able to demo the software through a 15 day trial.
