BeautyCow, a luxury hair and beauty products specialist, says it has improved its despatch process significantly through seamless integration between its Linnworks order management system and the APC Overnight next-day delivery network.

The solution was implemented in just a few days. Despatch data created on the Linnworks system is now sent automatically to the NetDespatch processing platform in real time via a secure connection, using the local NetDespatch Connector application.

Labels for APC Overnight are then printed in the warehouse on a thermal printer and attached to the prepared parcels. At the same time, the NetDespatch platform electronically sends a pre-advice of the night’s load to the local APC Overnight delivery depot, Parcel Express Overnight in Saltash, Cornwall.

Director Ben Towle says the new system has saved a lot of time every day. "Eighteen months ago we were spending all day preparing orders. Now we’re finished by noon, which gives us the rest of the day to list more products and push our business forward."

"It’s so easy now. Order information is automatically sent through, labels printed, the carrier is notified, and that’s it."
