Workhorse for Multi-Client 3PLS

A good system to start with but as your companies scales and the operating environment becomes more complex, it may be time to migrate to a more robust solution.

Pros

A product is stable and well suited to 3PL; Customers like account portal for ease of navigation; Warehouse employees find it easy to use

Cons

Tech is a bit dusty; Ad hoc reporting capabilities are not intuitive; inventory control/management lacks flexibility

3PL Central Review

2016-06-24

Pros

API integrations to shopping carts & OMS's, automated capture of billing events, automated email notifications, FTP export automation, client-facing visibility & inventory related reporting, RF functionality is good not great, customer support is very responsive.

Cons

SOAP APIs need better documentation (hopefully improved in new REST APIs), system can be slow during peak times (Monday mornings), need more focus on B2C pick & pack functionality (pick strategies, replenishment, location-based allocation options).

Our inventory accuracy went from 91% to 99% allowing us to provide better customer service

2009-07-02

3PL's web-based system has kept our initial investment costs down. Our inventory accuracy went from 91% to 99%, allowing us to provide better customer service and avoid expensive errors. 3PL has also provided us with a solid checks and balances system, which was the driving force behind implementing a warehouse management system.

Pros

- Our customers like having the ability to log on and see their inventory status.

Cons

- Turn-around time on adding new features

Reasonably Priced & Makes Your Business Run Smooth

2017-09-22

More customization would be great.

Pros

Has all the basic features you want in WMS - The software itself very easy to use / user-friendly for someone who hasn't had previous experience with inventory management.

Cons

Not many - occasionally system runs slow but I've been told this has since been fixed. Also, at times it can be difficult to get customer support on the phone but once you do they are very helpful!

Has Helped Us Grow

2017-02-13

The visibility for our customers is critical and most find it works well despite the UI being slightly hard to navigate.

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)

Global Warehouse Management

2013-09-19

On the contrary, manufacturers and other vendors actually feel more loyal to a warehousing company when they are notified about updated inventory information and shipment statuses in real-time, day or night. 3PL Central’s web-based management system saves warehousing companies money by doing away with long-term contracts.

Pros

3PL Central provides a great value for warehousing professionals

Cons

The platform's features are very industry-specific.

2017-08-17

Pros

Basic services are included in the software package, which is cloud based, making it easier for customers to gain access to their data

Our Clients Love 3PL Central, We do Too!

2015-04-07

Pros

My staff and I can look take care of orders and inventory questions immediately in real time. The auto notifications are great that can be set up to notify clients of activity.

Cons

When asking for help or working through issue your request drops into a cue and you don't always get the same support tech. It would be nice to assign a primary staff member to an account. I understand the challenges of managing this but it would be a plus and could lead to improved productivity by the 3PL Help Desk Support staff. Overall I've been pleased with how most of the issues have gotten resolved (there haven't been that many). Thankfully!

Best 3PL Software for Smal to med size warehouse

2009-07-16

3PL is the most inexpensive warehouse management tool I have ever implemented, but it's also fast, complete, and straightforward.

Pros

Ability to manage warehouses, products, orders and customers from anywhere you have internet connection dramatically saves time and money. 3PL is the best investment the a small to med size warehouse can have, it is very easy to use which cuts on training time and rich in practical features that makes it affordable to all small businesses.

Cons

The lack of an auto save feature is problematic omission we hope to see in future releases.

Quality Software & Top Notch Service

2015-09-10

The look of the software could be refreshed, but they are already working on it from what I understand. That being said, their current look is much newer than other WMS solutions we experienced/reviewed/demoed.

A true SaaS solution is the best way to go! Don't get fooled into a vendor hosting your version of the WMS on their servers. Count the number of clicks it takes to complete and inbound/outbound. Bells and whistles don't matter if the core functionality is not solid. Ask to talk with one of their current customers as a referral. Ask why their last customer ended relationship with them.

3PL Central Product Review

2012-02-15

Would not hesitate to recommend.

Pros

Very well suited for 3PLs that manage many clients across many industries, need retail replenishment and EDI compliance, have basic kit assembly needs and ship primarily cases/pallets.

Cons

Needs some more development on individual unit pick/pack capabilities for high SKU count & high volume operations but otherwise very versatile for both B2C and B2B 3PLs.
