3PL launches real-time order fulfilment software

UK North West order fulfilment and logistics company 3PL has announced the launch of its real-time cloud-based order fulfilment software called Fusion.

The platform has been developed in-house and is built to help its growing retail brands gain a competitive edge in multichannel retail. It holds and exchanges real-time data, live inventory updates, delivery reporting, and has the ability to track and amend orders as they are processed.

The aim of Fusion is to be a single platform of sales data management. Retail clients can fulfil orders from multiple channels and countries in one place. It is available on all platforms. It is being rolled out to all of 3PL’s clients.

As a third party logistics provider, 3PL holds more than 16 million units of stock and ships more than a million packages annually. With business growing quickly it has recently announced the opening of a new, 55,000 square foot regional distribution centre.

“If you’re into supporting e-commerce then you simply must evolve technology-wise,” Leon Parkinson, IT & Systems Manager at 3PL, explained. “Our Fusion platform removes common friction points from the supply chain resulting in fewer contacts whilst putting precious time back into the working day of our client base. This recent upgrade includes some really useful features whilst also increasing stability resulting in uptime in excess of 99.9%. As a business and on behalf of our fantastic clients we have invested heavily in our technologies in recent years and with the next scope of works already scheduled I’m really pleased to see our pioneering technologies start to gain the accolades the 3PL development team deserves, with 3PL Fusion being our very own creation, the possibilities are endless.”
