Quite often we get asked by shippers and senders how are we different to Gosweetspot or GSS? Are you a copy of Gosweetspot? What are your sweetspot? (no pun intended) Let’s answer these questions.
We are similar to Gosweetspot, we are direct competitors to each other, and no, we are not a copy of Gosweetspot, we are two independently developed systems, Parcelport (PP) back then was called Payport. In fact, in 2012 we were the first cloud based online courier system when Sweetspot, which was founded in 2010, was a PC based system (where software installation is necessary).
We are not going to bad mouth our competitor here, this is not what this blog is about, in this blog we are simply answers the above questions objectively, and we will quote some of our users on how they evaluate the two.
“We have been with Parcel [Port] for over 4 years now. It’s a good system. I’d say equal to GSS, having Courier Post on board has hugely reduced our costs to the customer in more remote areas” – Debbie Rennie
“We jumped over to PP [from GSS], no problems with the software, and we get to use CourierPost” – Cameron Hicks
