ConnectShip | iShip Toolkit Cloud

Toolkit Cloud allows access to the ConnectShip | iShip API solution (Toolkit) functionality online, without the requirement to install a dedicated onsite server, reducing the need for IT resources. Customer applications can use a hosted ConnectShip Toolkit installation from our state-of-the-art, secure data center. This minimizes the initial investment and reduces long-term maintenance expenses. Toolkit Cloud is available in a pay-as-you-go model, again reducing the initial investment cost.

Toolkit Cloud gives you a powerful and flexible technology base for building applications that will evolve with the future needs of your business.
