Warehouse Management Software Now Has Over 300 Users Managing More Than 1.2 Million Square Feet in 17 Facilities

Orem, UT – September 20, 2007 – 3PL Central today announced the one-year anniversary of its 3PL Warehouse Manager™ product, the world’s first on-demand warehouse management system (WMS) designed to provide third party warehouse operators with an affordable, “pay for what you use” WMS software solution. Just one year after its launch, 3PL Warehouse Manager™ now has 13 3PL subscribers, 315 registered users and is managing more than 130 customer inventories worldwide.

3PL Warehouse Manager™ is able to support multi-customer, multi-warehouse and multi-user facilities, includes real-time inventory visibility and other advanced WMS features providing 3PL subscribers with all the functionality of an enterprise-class system without the expense. Using 3PL Warehouse Manager™ allows small to mid-sized warehouse operators to add new business and be more competitive with the larger providers without being restricted by the technological limitations or financial barriers they might otherwise encounter.

“As my customer base has expanded and my operations have grown, 3PL Warehouse Manager™ has allowed me to easily service new business without enduring lengthy and costly installations,” said Ted McDonald, general manager, Trident Companies, a 3PL Central customer for 11 months. “The 3PL Warehouse Manager™ pricing model allows me to pay for only the features that my customers require.”

3PL Warehouse Manager™ is able to easily scale to any size operation. Currently subscribers are using the on-demand solution to manage more than 1.2 million square feet across 17 warehouse facilities worldwide.

“3PL Warehouse Manager™ has been invaluable in helping us close new customers,” said Sandra Harris, president, Benchmark Logistics, a six month 3PL Central customer. “The team at 3PL Central is very responsive and the application has been able to handle all of our needs.”

3PL Warehouse Manager™: “Affordable, On-demand Warehouse Management” 3PL Warehouse Manager™ is the first web-based, on-demand warehouse management system focused on public and third party warehouses that provides the functionality necessary to run multi-customer, multi-warehouse and multi-user facilities.

With 3PL Warehouse Manager™, advanced functionality previously only found in high-cost, traditional WMS applications is now available to any size warehouse operation starting at $295 per month. 3PL Warehouse Manager™ includes real-time reporting, kitting support, advanced billing management and EDI integration.

“The last year has been truly amazing – our devoted and rapidly growing base of 3PL Warehouse Manager™ subscribers have helped us prove on-demand warehouse management is a far more flexible and profitable way for 3PLs to run their businesses,” said John Watkins, president and CEO of 3PL Central. “The real beauty of our solution is how it converts IT costs into a variable expense to mirror how 3PLs charge for their own services. Now, if only we had a solution to make rent expenses variable!”

One of the true innovations delivered by 3PL Warehouse Manager™ is ease of setup and use. Due to its on-demand or Software as a Service (SaaS) architecture, the web-based application can be purchased, configured and up-and-running within a matter of hours, depending upon the level of complexity of a subscriber’s operations. Typical deployments are completed within 2-3 days. In addition, the on-demand software model completely eliminates the need for purchasing expensive computer equipment and paying on-going software maintenance fees.
