Brightpearl Enhances Drop Shipping and Margin Calculation Features
Ecommerce management solution Brightpearl has been updated with new batch drop-shipping functionality, and advanced cost attribution rules.
Brightpearl's drop-shipping functionality now has batch processing functions that help cut admin time when forwarding orders directly to suppliers for shipping.
The margin calculation feature now has advanced landed-cost attribution, letting merchants easily factor in transportation fees, customs, duties, insurance, etc, when calculating margins and setting sale prices.
"Last year our customers saw holiday season sales volume nearly triple compared to 2013," said Henry Morland, Chief Product Officer at Brightpearl. "As Brightpearl is entirely cloud-based, we can dramatically increase computing resources to accommodate a huge spike in expected demand this year as well. The result is a competitive advantage enjoyed by the 1,400 merchants currently using Brightpearl to run their multi-channel operations. Already, our customers are growing at twice the average rate for ecommerce businesses worldwide -- a rate we expect will continue to increase as merchants further leverage the capabilities of our software."
