Date: May 12, 2014


MANHATTAN BEACH, CA – May 12th, 2014 — 3PL Central announced today that it has expanded its Warehouse Management Platform™ capabilities by finalizing a turnkey integration with ChannelAdvisor Corporation, a leading provider of cloud-based e-commerce solutions.

“Our goal is to provide our clients with a single source for all their inventory management, technology, shipping and integration needs,” says John Watkins, co-founder and Company CEO. “The addition of our new ChannelAdvisor capabilities will help us make that a reality.”

The new capabilities will allow 3PL Central’s customers to integrate their order, shipping and tracking information with ChannelAdvisor’s platform in real-time. This information can then be accessed by any customers of the e-commerce provider worldwide.

“We are thrilled to add this latest integration to our core WMS product,” says co-founder Nancy Rohman. “As with all components of our Warehouse Management Platform, we pay a lot of attention to what our customers want and need to streamline their operations – and then respond accordingly. The ChannelAdvisor integration will enable our customers to run better, quicker and smarter – and that is what we like to see.”

The new offering will be available to all users of 3PL Warehouse Manager’s e-commerce package and can be purchased a la carte. The new ChannelAdvisor capabilities will complement the product’s growing list of recently added features, including Order Management Integrations with some of the industry’s top shopping cart providers, integrations with leading business management platform providers like Limelight and Brightpearl – and automated import of users’ QuickBooks-based sales orders.

Over the past seven years, 3PL Central has rolled out more than 140 feature upgrades for its users – all in real-time – and almost all without any charge to its customers. Additional feature releases are on the immediate horizon.
