Marketplace management tool Veeqo has added the ability to bulk print up to 100 shipping labels in one go with any Veeqo integrated courier.

Laser printer users can use Veeqo to generate integrated invoices and labels.
Multichannel management system Veeqo has created a new marketplace for apps that run on its platform.
The Veeqo Marketplace allows ecommerce software developers to build tools that easily integrate with the software. At launch, the Marketplace has 12 apps including ones from xSellco and Lokad, covering categories such as marketing, sales, customer service, accounting and social media.
Anybody can browse the Marketplace to see what apps and tools are currently available. Veeqo users can click a button to install and configure apps of their choice.
Developers can easily sign up to develop apps for Veeqo and have access to a developer forum to resolve problems with the Veeqo Developer community.
Marketplace management tool Veeqo has announced a new hardware scanner for use in ecommerce fulfillment warehouses.
The "VS1" scanner promises to provide Amazon-style logistics capabilities for retail businesses of all sizes. The scanner is directly linked to software that lets online retailers manage a high volume of ecommerce orders from multiple sales channels and marketplaces, bringing enterprise-level warehouse operations at a fraction of the cost.
The device was developed after Veeqo CEO, Matt Warren, experienced how difficult it was picking and shipping orders while operating his own ecommerce business, Jura Watches. Jura turned over £60m selling luxury watches online and Matt wanted to do something to make simplified high level warehouse systems accessible to retail businesses of all sizes.
The VS1 Scanner is built around three core functions to help make retailers run as efficient a warehouse operation as possible:
- Booking in stock
- Accurate order picking
- Faster, paperless stock taking
The scanner has a battery that lasts for 10 hours of constant scanning, is fully charged within 3 hours, automatically updates with new features and fixes, has a pistol-style scan button, and offers free replacement if it breaks from non-accidental damage.
Veeqo CEO Matt Warren said: "I'm really proud to unveil the VS1 Scanner - a device we've built specifically to help ecommerce retailers get products to their customers quicker than ever before."
The new partnership allows for a direct integration between the two platforms, smoothing out the entire inventory and delivery management process.
Businesses who need to manage inventory, ecommerce listing and delivery of products to customers using their own vehicles will particularly benefit from the integration.
STREAM is designed for companies with complex and challenging delivery requirements. The app provides map-based route optimisation, a mobile driver app, an innovative customer gateway, proactive email, SMS updates, and electronic proof of delivery (ePOD).
"We are excited about integrating Veeqo with STREAM," said Dave Pickburn, Director at STREAM developer Proximity. "Businesses who need to manage inventory, ecommerce listing and deliver products to customers with their own vehicles will particularly benefit from the integration of Veeqo".
Matt Warren, CEO and Founder at Veeqo added, "Our mission at Veeqo is to become the best possible platform for retailers to grow their business. This integration with STREAM provides a brand new way for people using our software to get their products delivered to their customers all over the UK."
ParcelBright remains a standalone entity but is now integrated with Veeqo's software, providing Veeqo customers access to cheaper shipping rates and a wider range of couriers.
