International supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is launching a fully multilingual, user-defined 3PL (third party logistics) solution. “3PL is one of the fastest-growing supply chain market segments, but with historically slow-moving technology. As a result it has lacked a truly modern warehouse management system with the flexibility and affordability that its agile companies need. Touch3PL is our response,” says TouchPath International CEO David Myers.
‘Touch3PL’ is to be marketed in on-premise, hosted cloud and pay-as-you-go versions, with global 24/7 user support and integration with the leading carriers and e-commerce platforms. The number of Touch3PL software licences can be increased and decreased in line with changing seasonal demands. While Touch3PL can utilise desktop PCs and handheld radio terminals, its core functions are also available as apps to give users the option to avoid mobile terminal costs by running warehouse processes on IOS mobile phones and tablets. Users can log in using any leading web browser.
Touch3PL integrates with carriers including UPS and TNT, and with e-commerce platforms including eBay, Amazon and Magento, allowing customer orders to be fed directly into a 3PL warehousing environment. It offers a range of picking options, enables rapid and accurate customer billing, and includes bill of materials (BOM) maintenance to support kitting, relabelling and component (re)assembly. TouchPath systems’ technology captures more supply chain information for better business performance and faster ROI. Its unique custom-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems use building blocks that allow TouchPath software to be fully tailored with no limits, in line with user-defined business rules and processes, at a lower price and with faster deployment, according to the company.
