Project management service Trello today launched a new feature that brings shipping and tracking data from UPS, USPS, FedEx, OnTrac and LaserShip right into Trello cards. That’s a nifty little feature for existing Trello users, given that it now allows them to easily track their shipments in real time right from their project management tool.
As the company told me, this means a small business could now use the service to easily track the progress of their shipments and as their status changes from in-transit to delivered, the card will automatically change colors from yellow to green (or to red when the shipment is delayed).
To get started, users simply have to click the new ‘Track Package’ button and enter their tracking number and select a carrier.
Trello recently launched its revamped business offering, which includes a number of other third-party integrations, too. Like Atlassian, Trello is clearly looking to expand outside of the developer niche that first adopted the service. Developers don’t care all that much about tracking packages — small businesses do. And that’s a market that hasn’t really adopted these kind of project management tools yet.
