Very good for our purposes

16/04/2017

Pros

We used this to manage our voucher shop and it was the only program which filled all of our needs. It is easy to use and was easy to train staff on.

Cons

Was slightly more than we wanted to pay for the program but worth the money in the end. Would like it to interface more with collateral programs.

Has Helped Us Grow

13/02/2017

We have been using 3PL Central for nearly 5 years now. Over that time we have been able to utilize the technology provided to greatly grow our business. The functionality has a wide scope of offerings and for the most part they work very well. We utilize 3PL Central as our Warehouse Management Software and rely on it heavily for small parcel receiving, inventory management, and order organization. We use a separate, stand-alone pack verification/manifesting/shipping software that we like much better than the modules offered by 3PL Central for those specific tasks. The visibility for our customers is critical and most find it works well despite the UI being slightly hard to navigate. Our biggest hurdle has been to take full advantage of the new feature releases because of the change in protocol/process that it would require. There is definitely an advantage to new releases and features, but they aren't always really easy to implement.

Pros

- Web Based - Broad scope of features - Constant updates and feature releases - Up-time is near 100% - Good support (when you can get it) - Handles wide (possibly unlimited) product types

Cons

- Support is very slow and often inexperienced requiring multiple responses to get a resolution - Most additional features are a le Cart so the price can increase depending on features - High traffic days make the system slow (although they have been addressing this) - UI can be hard to navigate at first and specifically for customers - Doesn't play well with mobile (we've been told this is in the works)

Depending on the transactional volume this may be a great option. We like it and have had a hard time finding a replacement that matches the bang for the buck.

Niche Product

23/01/2017

This is specifically for a company doing third party logistics. The requirements to compete in that market are high and varied. So to find an inexpensive workable solution is tough. 3PL fits the bill.

Pros

Lots of functionality. Lots of add-ons if you need them. Most of them are for free.

Cons

UI is pretty old school. It's not super pretty or slick. Some of the functionality is a little clunky and you have to take extra steps to do something that we wish was just a click of a button.

Fully Loaded, It's worth it for the money. It's not a Manhattan Group software, but for the little guys, it's a great software.

6 months under our belt with 3PL central

20/01/2017

Overall this is a very full-featured software. We enjoy the prompt responses from the support team. We are waiting patiently for more Rest API's and android scanners. We've been told they are on the horizon, but it doesn't look like anything is coming soon.

Pros

Robust Billing Wizard. Prompt and professional support team. Smart Pack is a really cool way to reduce errors during packing.

Cons

The UI feels old. Not intuitive. Does not handle consignment between customers.

Poor Customer service and support

14/10/2016

Terrible customer service and support. The training session was done very well but i'm still waiting for the customer service and support to solve an issue since July. There is no follow up, no updates, no solutions on their side. Software is pretty basic too.

Pros

simple

Cons

basic
