However, when they implemented Epicor their shipping process was integrated to which created some issues in their warehouse processes. These included:  1 to 2 minutes per shipment for processing. With over 100 orders per day it was taking over 3 hours to process shipments  All international orders needed to be handled manually  Capturing the costs back in Epicor was not working correctly.
