The leading German shipping service provider Shipcloud and the cloud ERP provider Haufe X360 (formerly lexbizz) from Lexware have decided on a technology partnership that enables medium-sized companies to control their logistics and fulfillment processes at a level that is otherwise only reserved for large corporations.

“We are happy to have a technology partner like Haufe X360, who is bringing the world’s fastest growing cloud ERP to Germany. With our own technology, we offer Haufe X360 users a competitive advantage when it comes to handling the shipping processes and we can look forward to a large group of potential new customers in terms of our own corporate goals.” – comments Claus Fahlbusch, founder and managing director from Shipcloud, the new partnership.

Carsten Schröder, President of Cloud-ERP Haufe X360, also sees great added value in the partnership and explains: “With the Shipcloud extension, we offer medium-sized companies the opportunity to unite their customers on the basis of end-to-end automation and offer a level of customer experiences that is otherwise only reserved for large corporations”.

What are the main advantages for Haufe X360?

For Haufe X360, some of the many advantages of the Shipcloud connection include the diverse selection of carriers, transparent shipment tracking and a smooth returns management. “And that with full cost control and maximum process efficiency. With Shipcloud, we enable our users to excellently manage the last mile in e-commerce.” – says Schröder.
The Shipcloud connection will be fully integrated in the Haufe X360 ERP system. And that without significant additional technological effort. By connecting the shipping interface to the ERP system, shipping can be integrated directly into the existing order creation and fulfillment processes of Haufe X360. The focus is initially on wholesale – from small contract manufacturers to up-and-coming online retailers to large B2B trading companies. Further, production companies should also be addressed.
