mad capsuleIntegration with NetDespatch saved a month of development time for ecommerce and shipping software company

NetDespatch, the leading parcel data management platform for postal and parcel carriers, is delighted to announce that it has partnered with Mad Capsule Media, an independent software company specialising in ecommerce and shipping integration for e-tailers. The partnership has allowed Mad Capsule Media to rapidly offer their customers a broader portfolio of UK and international carriers, without any significant investment in development or testing.

Founded in 2008, Mad Capsule Media provides specialist ecommerce fulfilment software that helps e-tailers streamline their order processing and warehouse management operations.  Mad Capsule is the market leader for Magento, Brightpearl and Shopify shipping extensions. Last year Mad Capsule implemented a new ‘SaaS’ platform, ‘Shiptheory’; an online flexible shipping rules engine that allows businesses to create both simple and complex shipping rules. The shipping rules control the selection of the parcel carrier to be used for a particular order, based on weight, order value and destination, simplifying and automating what is generally a very time-consuming task for online retailers.

Mad Capsule Media’s partnership with NetDespatch has enabled them to offer seamless integration with APC Overnight and Yodel to their rapidly growing list of customers. This has instantly broadened the carrier portfolio available for Mad Capsule’s customers, ensuring as always that their labels, manifests and data files are always compliant for each of their chosen carriers.

Lead Developer for Mad Capsule’s Shiptheory product, James Mikkelson, comments: “We’ve been helping thousands of companies automate their shipping process since 2008. Our recent partnership with NetDespatch has allowed us to add an APC Overnight and a Yodel integration to Shiptheory with very little development time. We’re looking forward to working with NetDespatch on additional projects in the future.”

Mad Capsule Media customers can now select even more carriers via the two integrated ‘SaaS’ platforms, so that all parcels are automatically despatched and passed to the correct carrier with the required labels and documentation and data files; all of these are produced without the need for manual intervention or any data re-entry. This new integration has allowed the team at Mad Capsule Media to concentrate on their core business, as it saves them approximately a month’s worth of development time for each new carrier to be added.
