KINGSTON UPON HULL, England, June 7, 2011 -

Order fulfilment specialists Axida have launched PPD; a ground-breaking
pick, pack and despatch Software as a Service (SaaS) offering designed
specifically for the needs of ecommerce, mail order and fulfilment
businesses. The pay-as-you-go Axida PPD solution is hosted online and
requires little to no upfront investment, has no licence fees and utilises
the clients' existing computer hardware. Set up is quick and simple as
customers simply access the on-demand system on the Internet using a standard
web browser.

"With our low-cost cloud computing pick, pack and dispatch solution, we
are giving fulfilment houses, catalogue, mail order and ecommerce businesses
the power to take control of their fulfilment operations with the added
benefit of ensuring maximum customer satisfaction through efficient service.
Our SaaS offering provides warehouse and fulfilment management functionality
without the associated costs of installing expensive onsite systems," says
Len Robinson, Director, Axida.

PPD features standard interfacing for Amazon and eBay orders and can be
used with other systems such as osCommerce and ChannelAdvisor, enabling full
integration with ecommerce websites. The system manages back orders for drop
shipping by giving greater control and visibility of the order - an area that
can be problematic for online stores, particularly with products that are
delivered direct to customers from manufacturers and distributors.

Axida PPD is a fully-hosted system backed by 24/7 support with complete
disaster recovery management. It provides comprehensive features and benefits
found in expensive, complex high-end warehouse management systems. It
provides on-line, real-time stock and dispatch management and instant live
stock information, right through to automatic dispatch note and carrier label

The system assigns orders to available stock with the facility to set
re-order levels. Picking can be grouped in several ways such as by carrier or
order date to optimise staffing and time spent on the pick, pack and dispatch
process. It includes customer order contact management, which saves on the
cost of additional systems, and carrier integration, already supporting the
likes of Parcelforce, UPS and DPD amongst others. Returns management is also
handled by PPD with automated replacement processing.
