3PL Knows Effective Management is Mandatory

By david.yarbrough | May 29, 2015 | Blog

SphereWMS is proud to be known for providing effective, uncomplicated web-based inventory management that works for kinds of establishments, from small local start-ups to sizeable corporations with locations scattered nation wide. We believe in creating a responsive and adaptable warehouse that can develop and change as needed, so you can grow your own business without the poor customer service and costs you’ll find elsewhere. But we aren’t just all talk-we have faithful customers that keep coming back because our software works.

We are pleased to announce we have WestOne Logistics as a customer, and they agreed to share their great experience with SphereWMS. With clients in Idaho and Wyoming, WestOne Logistics is a third-party logistics provider (3PL) that offers outsourced or “third party” logistics services to companies for part (or all) of their supply chain management function.

Read on to see just what sets SphereWMS apart from the others and discover how we can pass the WMS effortlessness onto your business.

“We researched in-house proprietary systems, SaaS-based models, and various competitive products for about a year, but nothing clicked until we saw SphereWMS. SphereWMS is a fully hosted, web-based service, so we didn’t have to invest in any hardware or worry about IT and maintenance.”

Here at SphereWMS, we don’t believe in making you pay for unnecessary things like an unproductive IT team or forcing you to pay start-up fees. You get great service and a WMS system that works for you, right off the bat.

“We reached the point in our business where investing in a warehouse management system made sense. We were operating with Excel spreadsheets and didn’t have a system that provided enough visibility into our operations or the level of reporting needed to support our customer’s needs. Spreadsheets could do the job for only so long. So that we could continue providing the services our customers have come to expect, we needed a system that could grow with us and also provide additional functionality and reporting capability.”

Excel spreadsheets do not work for an ever-expanding business. Tracking and reporting with real-time results ensures that your customers’ needs are being met on time, every time.

“Having a global view of the events that affect your operation is crucial. Effectively managing the events that propel the movement of goods in a warehouse is the key to a solid operational process. The system allows us to better utilize existing resources, standardize processes, improve accuracy, and increase efficiencies. Now we can manage multiple warehouses under the umbrella of one system. This visibility empowers us to continually improve our operational methods and processes across our entire business.”

WestOne Logistics hit the nail on the head with this one! Being able to manage multiple warehouses with one simple, coordinated system not only cuts down on man-hours, it cuts out headaches for the entire staff.

“The final point that sold me on ASPGS (with Sphere WMS) was their personnel and willingness to customize the base product to accommodate special needs in our operations.”

We don’t just offer basic IT tech support; we provide personalized, customized products that will do exactly what your company needs. We know you’re busy, and we know you could work with a different WMS provider. So we are going to work as hard as we can to prove you are working with the best.
