You may already know that viewing, managing and paying your UPS invoices is simple using the UPS Billing Center. But what about leveraging it as a tool to help you make promotional pricing decisions?
Carla Anderson, a senior manager in the UPS Customer Technology Marketing group, says UPS Billing Center "helps streamline the management of UPS invoices because it's centralized and it's free." But the benefits don't stop there.
UPS Billing Center also has powerful reporting features that allow users to see their full UPS transportation costs, across varying modes. These reports can help small businesses forecast cost-related decisions associated with product pricing and assist in making informed promotional pricing decisions.
For example, Anderson says, reports can help you identify areas where expenses are increasing or even decreasing. Based on the data, a price increase or decrease might be in order to help balance your business costs.
UPS Billing Center reporting can be customized based on a variety of fields including account number, inbound/outbound charges, and invoice date among others for both package and freight shipments.
Additionally, Anderson reiterated how to get the most out of UPS Billing Center as a small business.
