UPS has "sweetened" its Quantum View suite of visibility services with the addition of Quantum View Inbound. This enhancement proactively alerts users about UPS air express, ground and international packages that are en route to the receiver's location.
UPS says Quantum View Inbound includes a proprietary address-matching system that retains multiple variations of street addresses within the United States. It also is able to match to different business names, according to the Atlanta-based package delivery service. For example, it recognizes variations such as UPS and UPS, Inc.
"The ability to see what shipments are scheduled to arrive is extremely useful to businesses because it enables them to make educated decisions about workforce and inventory planning," explains Jordan Colletta, UPS vice president of e-commerce marketing.
Quantum View Inbound is available in a variety of file formats. An online demo is available at www.ups.com/qvdemo
