"3PL system"

Comments: 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...

"Daily User"

Comments: Overall this is a good system to use if your managing a small to medium sized warehouse.
Simple
User Friendly
Efficient

Pros: We use 3PL daily to manage several customers. 3PL is great for managing stuff constantly pushing out and coming back into our facility. I really like how easy it is to create manual orders and edit orders. Simple processes in 3PL keep us organized in updating customers daily.

Cons: I wish that we had some sort of more visual reporting system to send to customers. We can pull numbers and what shipped but not a visual representation.

"Buggy, Missing Basic Features, Horrible GUI"

Comments: 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 if it fixes your issue, or you complaining about something. They broke our entire EDI process for one customer by changing what types of documents were supported via EDI. WHY WOULD THEY CHANGE THIS. we had to process 1,200 orders manually... FIFO isn't really FIFO in their system, it works, but not like it should. UPS/FedEx/USPS is external, it barely works within their system. If you need to process more than 10-15 cartons it often crashes and refuses to give you labels, forcing you to manually process them. I can't tell you how bad their customer service is, they ask for the same things over and over. The sales team, CSRs, tech support, don't put notes in your accounts, and keep asking you the same issues. They want to meet up yearly in person to ask how satisfied you are. We aren't your horrible, fix your bugs and we would be at best OK. Tab is your best friend in all menus if you type a SKU and hit search you will find nothing or the webpage will crash. Always hit tab for everything!, always press find twice before printing anything. You can't utilize more than 1 login at 1 time, it will crash both pages.

"Has Helped Us Grow"

Comments: 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)

"Avoid! They will trick you into an extended contract & then threaten you"

Comments: Terrible support, Lack of integration bad UI..

Pros: I wish i had the sales people these guys have..

Cons: Its very very basic, The interface seems to have been designed in 1993. It lacks straightforward integration with any standard shopping cart Shopify, Bigcommerce but worst of all when its time to move on & you try to cancel the software you will find that in the small print they have trapped you into another 12 months Clearly entrapment is the only way they can retai customers..
