International supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is launching a fully multilingual, user-defined 3PL (third party logistics) solution.‘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.
“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 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. Picking options range from simple pick and pack for smaller orders or pick to pallet for bulk orders through to wave picking to maximise efficiency. Touch3PL enables rapid and accurate customer billing, supporting different charge rates by customer, warehouse, item and process as required with accessible enquiry screen reporting. It also includes bill of materials (BOM) maintenance to support kitting, relabelling and component (re)assembly. Information is available to customers when their stock moves or an order is fulfilled via email or live Touch3PL web portal access to their own stock information.
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.
TouchPath has operations in the UK (Halifax HX1 5ER) and the USA (High Point, NC 27265) and is actively seeking partners in Asia.
