How easy is it to integrate my database with NRGship?

This is a common question we get from other FileMaker developers. Recently we were contacted by a customer who wanted help integrating their mailing database with NRGship FedEx for FileMaker. This customer had a fairly simple use case – on a weekly or monthly basis they are sending out printed materials to one of a few hundred locations. Each shipment could be one or more boxes of a varied weight via FedEx Ground. They’d also like to see shipment history and tracking for previous shipments. In under two hours we were able to modify their database so they could perform the following functions:

  • Add a shipment with one or more more packages to a CRM record
  • Capture weight off a USB-connected scale
  • Select pre-defined box sizes or enter dimensions manually
  • Print shipping labels to a networked Zebra printer
  • Allow users with certain permisions to void or delete shipments
  • Show a history of shipments with links to track at FedEx.com
  • Produce FedEx Ground End Of Day reports
  • Validate delivery addresses on data entry screens (and batch validate existing addresses)

All of this development was done using standard FileMaker scripting with no need to understand XML, JSON, Web Services or CURL. NRG solutions are available for all current versions of FileMaker Pro and can be used on the desktop, thru FileMaker Go or with Web Direct.

NRGship FedEx for FileMaker is a Certified FedEx Compatible solution.

FedEx Address Validation at Time of Entry

Resolving Undeliverable Addressing

A recent article in Mailing Systems Technology states that “Approximately 24% of the nearly 200 billion pieces of mail the Postal Service handles each year have address inaccuracies. These address inaccuracies can mean non-delivery, slowed delivery, returned mail and mail delivered to the wrong address. A significant amount of Standard mail never arrives at all! Not only are postage, printing and processing wasted, the opportunity to sell a product or contact a customer is missed.”

NRG’s Address Validation solution helps to ease addressing woes by allowing you to validate address data at time of entry.
