  • STARSHIP DASHBOARD

    The StarShip Dashboard is a web based application which allows you to analyze current and past shipment trends in the form of bar graphs, pie charts and tables. You can also print and export data from some widgets and Crystal Reports. The StarShip Dashboard can be used in the front office by customer service personnel to provide up to the minute shipment cost and tracking details. It is also a useful tool for management to view key performance indicators such as total number of orders shipped, carriers used, carrier performance and more. The dashboard can be accessed with no impact on StarShip seat count.

    This document will review features, functionality and setup of the Dashboard component.
