Purpose-built by 3PL experts specifically for 3PLs
Some of the typical challenges you may be facing as an outsourced logistics provider include:
|Your challenges||How we can help you with your challenges|
|Distribution-based software and not 3PL
Traditional WMS systems are built for distributors and not for outsourced and contract logistics service providers.
|3PL Domain Expertise
Built by 3PL experts specifically for third-party logistics operations and multi-client facilities in 14 countries and hundreds of sites. Because our team members have a deep history in 3PL and the product is designed for 3PLs, the implementation is typically shorter and less risky than providers of WMS that do not have a 3PL-focused implementation methodology.
Systems across 3PL operations are not connected or integrated, making it hard to find a single view of the operations. Traditional WMS systems are built for distributors and not for outsourced and contract logistics service providers.
|Single Pane of Glass
Provides a complete operational solution for a 3PL that includes core warehousing but also billing, customer services, labor management, KPIs and metrics, alert management, workflow by customer, customer self-service and visibility, EDI network, Omni-channel fulfillment, transportation and delivery management.
As a 3PL, you are concerned that implementing new software will impact productivity, increase costs, and reduce your razor-thin profit margins.
Our solution has more built-in innovations and functionality for outsourced logistics operations than competing software. It requires less customization, fewer dedicated staff, costs much less to run, and is faster to implement (with minimal switchover downtime).
|Private Distribution-specific WMS solution
Distribution-specific warehouse management systems have been built with workarounds and bolt-on functionality to suit 3PL operations, and so they are complex and require extensive development and support.
|3PL (Outsourced Logistics) specific solution
Although many leading WMS packages claim to work for 3PL’s, they are retrofit from distribution operations and force-fit to the needs of 3PLs. Built from the ground up by 3PL experts, our solution is built ready for multi-client, contract logistics operations.
|Your customers want to it now!
You have challenges onboarding new customers and meeting customer expectations for faster response times.
|Efficiency and Productivity
Designed by 3PL experts with hundreds of successful deployments, our solution has the unique capability to manage concurrent client workflows. It allows you to quickly tailor the system to the unique needs of each of the clients without custom programming.
Are you a 3PL startup or a mature enterprise?
How do you plan for future infrastructure requirements?
How do I add functionality based on the value added services my customers need?
How do I standardize and/or customize according to requirements?
|Configurable and Extensible
Startup — Our solution will support your growth objectives. You can have the same solution as a bigger player that will level the playing field for you.
Mature enterprise — Many 3PLs choose a system but soon outgrow the abilities of that system. Our enterprise class solution is engineered for high volume, multi-site operations.
You can start off with a small configuration in the cloud that can grow with you.
You could begin with a core 3PL system and then add modules later as needed, such as: EDI, transport, labor management, and parcel shipping.
With our solution, you can cover a broad range of customer and vertical industry needs — product shelf-life, expiry dates, as well as provide depth of functionality with granular drill-down capabilities.
As an outsourced logistics provider, you are expected to provide your customers with visibility into inventory, orders and supply chain events.
|Customer On-demand Portal
You get web-based visibility with precise, real-time inventory information to support all of your customers’ requests.
|Capturing Multi-Client billing opportunities
As a contract logistics provider, you are concerned that you are “leaving money on the table” by not billing for all storage, handling, and value-added services.
|Billing and Revenue Management
Billing flexibility to track every penny everywhere.
All billing rules can be accommodated in the software so you do not miss any revenue opportunities. Billing events triggered in the warehouse workflow are immediately available for billing calculations.
Within a multi-client environment/facility, most logistics professionals struggle to find out the profitability by customer.
|Profit and Loss by Customer
We can track labor costs, material handling costs, and overhead costs and compare against handling and storage revenues.
|Workflow planning and employee performance
As a third-party logistics provider, you are worried about not getting the most productivity out of your warehouse workforce.
Improving employee productivity increases volumes while keeping personnel costs low.
Labor management functionality enables you to allocate tasks, monitor employee productivity, and benchmark against engineered standards in the warehouse.
|Compliance setting, monitoring and enforcement
Your customers want real-time insights into how you are managing their inbound, storage, outbound and reverse logistics flows.
|Client Process Assurance Management
Workflow processes are defined using a configuration tool allowing processes to be tailored by client and process attribute (carrier, vendor, end customer, etc.) and be executed via paper or RF.
|Solving your customers’ problems
You may occasionally need to get temporary solutions to deal with customers’ needs and unexpected situations.
Deploy varying degrees of automation (as and when required) — RF based, voice based, paper based — all of which can operate concurrently.
You are concerned about meeting best-in-class inventory accuracy.
We have inventory control capabilities and cycle count validation that are embedded in your operational activities.
Outsourced logistics companies face challenges in various operational areas such as management of warehouse operations, workforce, process workflows, business intelligence, data management, enterprise mobility management, revenue assurance management, and transportation management. Some of these challenges can be categorized as follows:
How do I lower my Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)?
How do I increase my Return on Investment (ROI)?
How do I track, support and manage people, processes and technology in complex logistics operations?
How can I monitor performance and measure against corporate, client, and industry benchmarks?
How can I meet customer service level agreements?
How can I stay compliant with specific customer requirements in a multi-client environment?
How do I configure, track and manage standard operating procedures (SOPs) and customized workflows in a multi-client environment?
How do I allocate tasks, assign costs, and manage exceptions in a cross-functional, complex workplace?
How do I track, trace and report on any number of variables impacting inbound, warehouse and outbound processes?
How do I acquire new customers, demonstrate competitive differentiators?
How do I retain existing clients, meet and exceed customer service satisfaction levels?
How do I maintain distinct workflows and accountability for individual customers?
