Pros
The 3PL system gives our customers outstanding features but still provides our company with a cost effective WMS solution. The ease of navigation for both customers and our users is a big plus.

MO

Mike O.

It is a very straight forward system to use and is very simple to navigate. Smart View update is looking to be a great update to help in so many new functions that are very easy to manage.

OL

Oscar L.

It is very effective and useful to scan barcodes, I think the best is online access for our customers, the customization of packing lists makes the user experience is satisfactory and clear.

FF

Felix F.

Cons
Keep moving, Skip Magaya too, both horrible systems, with horrible customer service.

LR

Llane R.

If you are in an emergency situation there was little to nothing that you can do in order to speed up the service.

BC

Bryan C.

Bad manage in the freezers or the cooler. Small place to gather every product.

3PL system

Reviewed 2 years ago

working with 3p has been nothing but the best! Yes, 3pl might take longer than usual to respond to certain inquiries but lets be realistic here, we as humans can only do so much in a day! If I need a quick response I simply call 3pl and provide them my case # and they help right away! It is a very straight forward system to use and is very simple to navigate. Smart View update is looking to be a great update to help in so many new functions that are very easy to manage! I use 3pl all day everyday! Love the help I get from all agents over there.

Pros

It is a very straight forward software to manage. Smart View update seems to be a lot helpful!!

Cons

The fact that I had to learn the new update, but with the help of the 3pl team I was able to figure things out. not so much a Con. lol...

Has Helped Us Grow

Reviewed 5 years ago

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....

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)

Great warehouse management system with low learning curve.

Reviewed a month ago

I do a wide range of IT at our company and know the processes of most departments. People come to me when they have IT issues and that includes issues with 3PL. There aren't a lot of issues that are due to the system, more training related. When we have issues that are system related, 3PL Support is always responsive and helpful. We also have a lot of custom development and API integration and 3PL Central has excellent documentation for our developers..

Pros

3PL Central is great because it's easy to use and train staff on.

Cons

The item alias screen is a nightmare and all clients are combined together. I wish it was setup like other screens, where you first select the client rather than all clients, which makes it slow and unstable.

Buggy, Missing Basic Features, Horrible GUI

Reviewed 4 years ago

Keep moving, Skip Magaya too, both horrible systems, with horrible customer service.

Pros

Its great if you don't need much or have low expectations. We have spent several years with 3PL Central, and their system is easy to learn, and has most basic features you would need. We have heard remnants they have been working on a new system but that was 5 months after we joined up with them, still never seen it. Others online say it only has basic features like looking up orders, and receipts. While customer servers is dumb, forgetful, and slow to respond, they have implemented a ticket system. But don't advertise it, so you have to ask about it.

Cons

Lacks support for UCC/SSCC labels, lacks support for cycle counting and inventory, isn't this an warehouse manager system? EDI support is sloppy at best, constant issues with it throwing errors saying it can't connect, or timed out, reports not automatically sending, edi's failing, asn's failing, Tech support loves to change settings without mentioning what it could break, they do it and wait to see...
