The reason why I found ShipStation and Google CloudPrint to be a good fit is because of the way it works. The process of printing a label from a mobile device has been a long held dream for many people, but up until recently, the technpogy required to make it a reality was not available. Now that these two technpogies have been brought together, it is easier than ever before to print from a mobile device.
ShipStation has one of the easiest interfaces to use for printing labels for shipment. In order to print labels, all I had to do was log in to my account, select ShipStation Print & Ship, and then select the customer whose orders I wanted to print out. I selected the type of shipping method I wanted to use, added the tracking number, and then selected the date I wanted the order to be shipped by. After all that information was selected, I could check off whether or not I wanted to create a pre-paid package. Then, I would enter in the name of the recipient, their address, and any comments I wanted included on the label. When everything looked correct, I clicked print, and about 10 seconds later, my label was in my email inbox ready to go.
Although this process is very simple in concept, there are some subtle details in the way Google CloudPrint works that make this process smoother. For example, when you are entering in the name of the recipient, you can paste in their name without having to type it in yourself. This saves time if you are printing multiple labels because you don’t have to retype in their name each time. Another nice feature is that when you are selecting your dates for shipping, you can click on the calendar icon if you want to change something about your date. This makes it very easy to find dates that work for you instead of trying to go back and forth between two different screens. The final detail that makes this process easier is that you can include special characters like hyphens or apostrophes in your labels without having to worry about your printer messing up your text.
The benefits of integrating these two technpogies are numerous. One benefit is that it allows you to get your packages shipped out quicker at a cheaper rate. If you are using UPS or FedEx SmartPost, both of which are valid shipping methods through ShipStation, then you will be able to save money by sending your packages through Google CloudPrint. These two companies have negotiated a discount with Google for this particular service so it costs less than other types of shipping. Another benefit is that it allows you to print your labels while you are on the go. You don’t have to wait until you get home to ship out all your packages because you can do it while you are sitting at your local coffee shop. This makes it easier if you are running low on time during certain days because you will be able to clear out your schedule more easily. Finally, this integration allows you to print your labels even faster than before because there is no need to connect your computer into a printer every time you want to print something. You can just pull out your phone and print off whatever you need in seconds with no hassle.
