Benefits of Integration of ShipStation and Amazon CloudWatch

ShipStation integrates with Amazon CloudWatch to provide more visibility for users of both services. Users can see shipping activity through their ShipStation account without having to rely on another third party top. This integration allows users to see exactly how their shipments are progressing, without having to look outside of their ShipStation account. It also allows users to view metrics about their shipping activity without having to log into another separate account or set up an entirely different top. The ShipStation/CloudWatch integration gives users the ability to manage their shipments within a single platform without having to switch between multiple accounts or tops. The integration also allows users to view historical data about their shipping activity in one central location. Since CloudWatch is a logging top, it stores historical data about each shipment in its system for users to view at any time. Users can view data about their shipments in the past as well as plan for future shipments by viewing monthly averages for several different shipping parameters.
