UPS today announced an industry-first application for BlackBerry® devices that not only ships and tracks packages but also finds the nearest UPS location. I use UPS regularly and really looking forward to this new application.
The App will be available tomorrow for free downloading at www.blackberry.com/appworld.
The new UPS MobileTM Appfor BlackBerry 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 UPS Mobile App for BlackBerry is a first-to-market solution for on-the-go professionals that’s arriving just in time for the busy holiday shipping season,” said Jordan Colletta, vice president of customer technology marketing at UPS.
Developed exclusively for use on BlackBerry smartphones, the new UPS Mobile 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.
BlackBerry users can use their smartphones 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 to easily find a UPS drop-off location.
The UPS Mobile App for BlackBerry has been developed with the following features that let you easily manage your shipments on the go:
See recent tracks and assign shipment nicknames when you log-in with your My UPS ID. Or track by number, no log-in required.
Log-in with your My UPS ID to access your address book, payment info, and other preferences from ups.com. Email label, then print.
Find the nearest UPS service locations, and get directions.
Estimate shipment costs and delivery times, and select the right UPS service for you.
The UPS Mobile App supports BlackBerry platforms 4.6 and higher as on the BlackBerry Storm™, BlackBerry Bold™, BlackBerry Tour™ and the BlackBerry Curve™ 8900.
