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...

iTracker Review

Reviewed on 2015/04/17

Pros

The system follows a simple and easy to understand workflow: ‘receipts’ to bring product into inventory, ‘picks’ to allocate inventory to delivery orders, ‘shipments’ to remove product from inventory. Once you understand the basic screen design and flow of one module, you understand the flow for all others. This is particularly helpful in training new users.

It is easy for an end user to leverage the powerful filtering functionality of any list view in the system. Each column has a filter available with numerous logical comparison operators available (i.e. ‘starts with’, ‘contains’, ‘equals’, etc.). The user does not need to understand any complex query syntax. They simply enter the value they want to filter and then select the comparison operator to apply. It’s also a simple matter to export any list view to various formats.

Each transaction in the system has multiple options for printing. You can print a list of transactions, a form for individual transactions, or labels of various kinds. There are dozens of report and label formats to choose from for each transaction. Each report or label can be previewed, printed, exported, or emailed directly from the system.
We have not experienced any downtime with the hosting service and consider it to be reliable.

Cons

Allowing users to set and change their own passwords would be a useful feature to increase security. Also, the ability to set password expiration policies and complexity rules would also be of benefit. I’ve spoken to Tracker Systems about this and have been told it may be included in a future version.

Though the system has many built in reports to choose from, it would be impossible for any system to have every possible report format. Tracker Systems is absolutely able and willing to customize any report format that comes up. However, for our business model, the number of such customizations would be financially unfeasible. Our preference is to handle such development in-house. iTracker has a custom reporting option, but we have found certain reports are still not possible with that tool.

The system supports mobile barcode reading. However, at this time it’s only supported on a small list of hardware and operating systems. An android or ios application would greatly increase the options for the end user.

In some instances we have experienced delays in switching from one screen to another while data refreshes or the screen layout changes. With a remote hosted, web application, some delays are to be expected. Keep this in mind if you are comparing this system to an on-premise alternative.

Buggy, Missing Basic Features, Horrible GUI

Reviewed on 2017/09/15

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

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.

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)

This is the perfect software for a warehouse

Reviewed on 2018/06/08

Pros

It is easy to learn and easy to navigate and has most of the basic features that any store would need (Neither more nor less). good relation of groups to microgroups. 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. and what makes this tool superior to the others is the ability to access everything remotely without intermediaries.

Cons

The billing module is really confusing. for my cocept this application is made for small organizational structures. has low performance (Slowness) with high data increases, I'm not very satisfied with customer service, it's fine but it can be better. The cost for small businesses can be high, the return on investment is not short term. (Of course it depends on how much you move)
