Shipping gets Real

This real-life series follows six independent shippers who have discovered that fortunes can be made transporting items that traditional carriers won’t touch. Dive into the cutthroat world of these heavy-duty movers as they battle for the chance to transport the unshippable.

Customer #1

During the holiday shipping season we often hear from NRGship customers who are being featured on television or on lists for must-have products. So I started to think about a blog posting listing our rock-star customers and their products but decided to highlight our first customer, Cliff Stoll from Acme Klein Bottles. Cliff is a TED-talker and may be best known as the guy who brought down a KGB hacker in the 80’s. He’s been shipping Klein Bottles with NRGship since 2004 and still uses one of the first versions:

The UPS shipper just keeps right on workin’ … nary a hiccup.  Solid software that has worked everyday since 2004.  Across Filemaker upgrades, through UPS revisions, across operating system changes.  WELL DONE!

 During the holidays, I may ship 30 to 50 packages in a day.  NRGSoft lets me do this through a simple Filemaker interface … transparently printing out a UPS shipping label from my customer’s name & address. Reliable, invisible, problem free.  This is the way software should behave!

For seven plus years, your software has allowed me to keep a lean, customized back-office database, a system that has made thousands of happy mathematicians.

While we wish all of our customers could be featured in the media during the holidays, they are all rock-stars in their own way.
