ReadyCloud & aACE Announce New End-to-End XaaS Integration
At the time of this announcement, Michael Bethuy, President of aACE Software, explained, “The aACE integration with ReadyCloud allows businesses to take advantage of state-of-the-art solutions for accounting, inventory, and shipping in one seamless user experience.”
Michael added, “Because information flows smoothly between the two solutions, aACE is able to automate invoicing, and since ReadyCloud provides aACE with the true cost of each shipment, entering and reconciling courier bills is a breeze. Streamlining these processes adds up to a lot of savings for our clients.”
The aACE integration for ReadyCloud significantly reduces the need for manual data entry, a common source of costly errors. For most shipments, this time-consuming task is eliminated entirely; shipments are auto-generated in aACE based on the sales order and automatically appear in ReadyCloud when they’re ready to be shipped. Once the tracking numbers and shipping costs have been determined by ReadyCloud, that information is imported back into aACE. This automatically generates an invoice reflecting the true shipping cost with any applicable markup for handling.
Another source of great frustration for many companies is entering and reconciling courier bills. The aACE + ReadyCloud integration makes this superfluous:
“Rather than manually entering the courier bill at the end of each month, aACE allows users to see all of the shipments they haven’t yet purchased at a glance with our Build Courier Invoice feature. With one click, aACE organizes each of these shipments, including costs and tracking information for easy, line-by-line comparison with the courier’s statement,” Bethuy said.
The integration also helps users reconcile billing, as well as find and eliminate costly errors:
“If the cost of a shipment on the courier’s bill doesn’t match the cost in aACE, the user can change it in the purchase,” Bethuy added. “That change will go back and update the shipment, which, in turn, updates the order, so that the costs are correct. aACE can also be configured to send a notification to an oversight group if the difference exceeds a certain value or percentage, ensuring companies can keep their shipping costs in check.”
