3PL Central, a provider of a cloud-based Warehouse Management System (WMS), announced its release of SmartView, the next-generation of its Warehouse Management Platform, 3PL Warehouse Manager. Created to help 3PLs better meet the needs of their customers, the SmartView experience includes a modern user interface, intelligent workflow capabilities, and a host of new features and functionalities all deployed utilizing a new REST API.

Offering core WMS features and functionality is key to the success of 3PLs who operate in increasingly complex and competitive environments. In alignment with their mission to empower clients with innovative technology solutions, 3PL Central has set a rapid pace of continued software advancements for 2018. The SmartView release is the first announcement, with additional feature releases scheduled throughout the new year.

“The SmartView release will help our clients take their WMS game to a whole new level,” said John Watkins, co-founder and CEO. “With its clean, modern look and intuitive new capabilities, the next generation of 3PL Warehouse Manager will streamline the entire user experience, allowing our clients to get far more done, far faster than ever before. Most important of all, it will enable them to satisfy their existing customers and impress potential prospects.”

These changes are designed to help 3PL Central’s customers meet the growing demands of their clients by providing a WMS that is accessible, scalable, easy to integrate with other systems, and can effortlessly manage day-to-day tasks.

“3PL Warehouse Manager with the SmartView experience is the latest embodiment of our relentless mission to help our clients exceed their customers’ expectations,” continued Chief Technology Officer, Sheridan Richey. “Deployed on a cutting edge REST API, warehouses can connect to the platforms their customers need and truly be a command center for their supply chain ecosystem. The SmartView release provides enterprise-level inventory management, connectivity, flexibility, and compliance. The result is a powerful WMS that enables complete warehouse management from one centralized data source.”

In addition to its new user interface, improved navigation and scalability, the SmartView release introduces a number of significant feature improvements to 3PL Warehouse Manager, all of which are integrated within its cloud-based warehouse management platform. Some of these updates include: enhanced navigation to maximize usable workspace; sophisticated data filtering with quick views; intelligent workflows and branding capabilities to tailor system by warehouse, location, item level, and customer; and inventory hold status, giving warehouses the ability to designate items to prevent them from shipping.

I value its comprehensive REST API’s, which empower us to handle unique customer requirements in-house and keep our customers happy.”
