API Integration for Multi-Shipping Management System
SmartConsign shipping software is a platform the allows clients (Operaters) to connect their customers (Shippers) with Carriers (Yodel, DX, DHL, etc).
The connectors developed by Impact talk to a variety of ecommerce stores so that orders can be shipped using SmartConsign. The integration provides the booking of the shipping agent, publishing of tracking informtion back to the store, the ability to download shipping labels or have shipping labels sent back to the store. The system can also handle cancellations. Due to the level of integrations the customer can pick from a variety of couriers and services, to match delivery expectations.
The connectors are called via a webhook to collect the order and then post it to SmartConsign, with a scheduled job running the connector every 5 minutes to mop up any orders that might be missed by the webhook from ecommerce stores, due to traffic, internet issues, etc.

Having worked with the staff at Impact for over 10 years I can confidently recommend their services. I originally chose them as the preferred partner for my project as they demonstrated a clear understanding of the issues involved, and had a refreshing can-do attitude. The issues we faced were technically challenging but Impact always provided a well thought out solution. With our products being regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), security and adhering to standards was vitally important, along with offering a slick user experience. From design through user interface, third party integration and back office integration Impact’s knowledge and experience shone through.
