If your company has this shipping process, Finale can be quickly added to your ShipStation integration to keep track of your stock on hand without changing anything about your existing shipping process. Using ShipStation's API, Finale communicates with ShipStation behind the scenes to watch the orders that are marked complete, and seamlessly records the transaction to remove the items from inventory.
