Kewill has expanded its supply chain management services with the introduction of Kewill Flagship Express, a non-premise-based technology designed for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

According to spokesmen, this is a “cost-effective U.S. origin shipping solution” that does not sacrifice performance or flexibility.

This new offering comes on the heels of the announcement of Kewill Netship, a cloud-based, fully integrated end-to-end, desktop shipping service.  With the announcement of Flagship Express, Kewill is now able to provide mid-market companies with functionality previously only available in enterprise-level systems at a price point that meets “budgetary needs.” 

Details of Kewill Express include:

• No hardware cost, lower total cost of ownership
• Multiple integration options to ensure data integrity
• Supports Low to Medium shipping volumes
• No or extremely limited IT support requirement
• Scalability – low overhead to migrate if volumes increase
• Robust add-on modules that add value to a variety of work flows

“Kewill Flagship Express provides us the ability to offer customers a shipping solution with this level of capability to fill a void that currently exists with other solutions targeted to the small to mid-market organizations,” said Alan Gold, vice president of marketing and business development for Kewill Inc. “Typically these companies need to choose between carrier-supplied, limited functionality shipping tools, expensive on-premise software, or complicated and costly implementation cycles.  With Kewill Flagship Express we’re changing all that.”
