UPS Shipping Now Easier with New Mac and iPhone Apps

Posted by at 5:09 pm on November 4, 2009

UPS has announced a new application for iPhone and iPod touch users that not only ships and tracks packages but also uses built-in GPS features to find the nearest UPS location.

Available at the App Store, the new UPS Mobile App for the iPhone enables users to track shipments, create shipments using the My UPS address book, calculate shipping rates and time-in-transit and then find the nearest UPS location.

The free shipping app joins other UPS-enabled solutions for Apple users. NRG Software, LLC., a UPS Ready strategic provider, recently added NRGship Mac to its shipping software lineup as a native Mac application.

iPhone App

iPhone and iPod touch users can use their devices to access their My UPS Address Book and Preferences and create shipping labels, which can be e-mailed in a PDF file for printout. Once the label is printed, customers can use the application’s “find locations” feature, which leverages the built-in GPS to easily locate UPS.

The new iPhone App doesn’t require log-In for tracking. But when logged in, the application shows a history of tracked shipments and automatically refreshes when the application is opened. UPS tracking numbers also can be nicknamed for quick reference.

The shipping app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/ups/.

Mac App

NRGship Mac organizes all the details of the user’s shipments in one place. It has been designed for the unique needs of small Mac-based businesses that ship 5-to-10 packages per day, but can easily support greater volume.

Through the application, Mac businesses can take advantage of UPS online services such as UPS Tracking, UPS Rates & Service Selection, UPS Time in Transit, UPS Address Validation, and UPS Shipping. Configuring printers and scales is as simple as plugging in the USB connections.

NRGship Mac is now available. Customers can try the application free for 15 days by downloading a trial demo at www.nrgsoftware.com/ups. The price is $35.95 a month after the trial.
