Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Pros

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.
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.
Their training segments have been very helpful. Their help desk has been great, and the software is easy to understand and set up.

Cons

Cons

Keep moving, Skip Magaya too, both horrible systems, with horrible customer service.
If you are in an emergency situation there was little to nothing that you can do in order to speed up the service.
Bad manage in the freezers or the cooler. Small place to gather every product.

3PL Warehouse Manager

Product functional but very clunky.

Reviewed 7 years ago

Functioning WMS.

Pros

The software is functionally designed with 3PLs in mind. The software is probably one of the cheaper solutions in the market. The help videos under the "Office Hours" are very useful. There are some folks that work in customer support that are very knowledgeable, if you can get hold of them.

Cons

The company promises a lot in terms of coming features and developments and has yet to deliver and customer support leaves a lot to be desired. It is apparent they spend a lot of money on advertising to attract new customers, but from what I have experienced they don't care much in terms of retaining their customer base. For example, I have an open help ticket almost a month old, I have reached out to customer support several times now with no communication back from 3PL on the issue - prompting me to place this very review. Mobile app is particularly buggy, and their mobile support outfit is particularly unresponsive.

Great Solution for WMS

Reviewed 15 years ago

Again, if you are looking into 3rd Party Logistic WMS software, You might want to give 3PL Central a spin to try them out. If you are in Forwarding, Warehousing, Trucking business, you should check it out this software.

Pros

This is great software if you are looking for Third Party Logistic WMS Software. I looked everywhere for software like 3PL Central for our Forwarder WMS Solutions, but not even we found what we are looking for, but it was perfect for our WMS operations.

Cons

If you need to modify any of the system functions, you need to pay for customization programming fee. But I guess it is very normal for SaaS software like this one. Only reason I gave 4 Star is I am sure every software needs more improvement and better solutions.

System Overview

Reviewed 15 years ago

Great buy for the small to mid-sized company on a tight WMS budget. We've certainly got more bang for our buck!

Pros

Web-based system that is very user friendly. System is scalable, thus giving us the opportunity for growth, whether we're processing one carton or 100,000 cartons it works.

Cons

We have not had any issues, the support team has worked to resolve any challenges we've encountered.

Quality Software & Top Notch Service

Reviewed 9 years ago
Pros

They have a true cloud based WMS solution that we can access anywhere. The user interface is easy to navigate and understand. Support inquiries are handled quickly and professionally. System feels like 100% up-time. Regular updates and feature enhancements. All reports are customizable to fit our needs.

Cons

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.

Reasonably Priced & Makes Your Business Run Smooth

Reviewed 7 years ago

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. Setup was easy and quick & 24-hour access to the cloud is a fantastic feature.

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!

How 3PL connected us to our Customers

Reviewed 15 years ago

Our distribution customers demand a warehouse management system that allows 24/7 visibility of their products, that allows them to send and receive orders electronically and is scalable to meet their future growth plans. The solution for us was 3PL. The 3PL system gives our customers outstanding features but still provides our company with a cost effective WMS solution. The ease of navigation for...

Pros

3PL offers us the following benefits: 24/7 web visibility for our customers. Multiple EDI formats to exchange data. Shiping and receiving e-mail notifications. Ease of navigation for customers. Simple order and receiving windows navigation. UPS label integration. On-going system upgrades at no charge. Excellent reporting capabilities. Bar coding capability. Great customer service.

Cons

System needs to provide the capability to print pallet labels for inbound shipments with lot and shipment details. System needs to be upgraded to provide more flexible billing schemes. System needs to produce a distinct shipping tally for the consignee to sign at time of pick-up.

3PL Central User Review

Reviewed 15 years ago

This has been a great system for us. It's very easy to use The integration was relatively quick and easy. Almost immediately we began to reap the benefits/efficiencies 3PL Central provides. The added functionality has improved our offerings & service to our current clients and has also been a great sales tool. The customer service has been very responsive to our needs. They've been excellent at listening to our requests and promptly modifying the system. 3PL Central has worked great for us. I'd fully recommend it as a WMS solution.

Pros

-Very easy to set up and get started. -Intuitive interface. -Responsive customer service with frequent updates based on our needs/requests. -Affordable yet robust. -Direct access for our clients.

Cons

-Shipping module isn't great. -Inability to do ad-hoc reporting. -No current Quickbooks billing integration (but on the plus side, this is something they are working on based on client input).

Outstanding 3PL software

Reviewed 14 years ago

After numerous demos, 3PL's SaaS package is by far the best you can find and with pricing that was well within our small companies budget. No need to buy and install software, being able to access from any computer, upgrades included. We were shipping our first orders the day they gave us access. The billing tool is the best to make sure you capture every costs, if your big enough, this tool is probably a profit center in itself.

Pros

We were looking for an alternative to a slow, cumbersome WMS system for managing our 3PL fulfillment services business. After reviewing and demoing over a dozen options, we found that 3PL offered the the best selection in functionality to meet our needs. We were excited about the ability to offer online access for our clients and customizing packing slips to match our clients look and feel. From...

Cons

As a SaaS, linking to Worldship or other desktop shipping apps is not as direct as we would like but I think improvements are in the works for this as well.
