The implementation of Clippership was very smooth. The Kewill people were professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We realized return on investment in only six weeks. It’s now so simple to negotiate with carriers that I only wish we had made the change years ago!
Brian J. Cerra, President of Online Stores
Having an effective shipping solution is crucial at any time for online retailers, but the run-up to the holiday period is make-or-break. Disappointed customers are unlikely to order again but are very likely to talk about their poor customer experience. Online Stores is a great e-retail success story that understands the importance of customer service and investing in systems that will deliver and grow with them, such as Kewill Clippership.
