Provides information on the GroovePacker integration with Shipstation and links for relevant resources.
GroovePacker is a scan-and-verify tool for order fulfillment that catches Pick/Pack errors before they go out the door. Depending on your workflow, your fulfillment staff can use GroovePacker at stationary packing stations, or as an on-the-go tool in the warehouse.
GroovePacker integrates with ShipStation and has full workflow layouts on their website. This web-based platform is not an Enterprise Warehouse Management suite nor is it an all-in-one that requires you to replace or reinvent your current workflow.
