Durham, North Carolina (PressExposure) July 11, 2015 -- Shipedge is announcing today its official launch as a software startup offering the worlds most comprehensive and scalable software platform for fulfillment companies and 3PLs. As a seamlessly integrated all-in-one software solution for 3PLs. Shipedge was born as a proprietary Order Management System (OMS) to run the company's own fulfillment network, which focused on aggregating eCommerce merchants to leverage economies of scale in warehousing and logistics. Rather than creating an OMS to integrate with a Warehouse Management System (WMS), Shipedge built a WMS inside the OMS solution. Later, that WMS grew in features, but because it was originally built inside the OMS, it can share all its information and functionality with multiple trading partners.
The problem that the fulfillment industry has been having for years is the absence of a scalable, reliable, accurate and efficient software platform to handle all their operations and increase proficiency. Merchants and 3PLs alike have had to create these piecemeal solutions by combining multiple different software platforms to run their operations which many times resulted in loss of accuracy and efficiency in having to switch between different software systems for different tasks and parts of the process and having to transfer over their data over these different software platforms while having to learn and teach their workforce how to operate each individual one. Shipedge is the obvious solution to this problem and accomplishes accuracy and efficiency in the work process and provides an immense return on investment for the 3PL organizations.
The result of years of analysis, research and development in tackling this problem is a cutting-edge web-based OmniChannel fulfillment solution, capable of automating all merchant channel actions while exchanging order and inventory data with a warehouse. The warehouse activities are completely streamlined for maximum efficiency thanks to an optimized workflow, integrations with label printers, and wireless barcode scanners working on Shipedge's native android app. Shipedge integrates with multiple selling channels, including a P.O.S.(Point of Sales) system on the OMS side and with all major shipping carriers on the WMS side. This solution is revolutionary for third party logistics companies (3PLs) as warehouses can share customers, typically eCommerce Retailers and as a result, Shipedge provides merchants the best logistics solution to compete with Amazon and its FBA solution.
Shipedge contains some great features and capabilities for 3PLs and distribution centers including the following:
- 3PL Warehouse Management System - WMS
- OmniChannel Order Management System - OMS
- Supply Chain with Inventory Forecasting - ERP
- Multifunction Android-Native Application For Bluetooth Barcode Scanners
- Returns & Exchanges Capabilities (Self-service RMA)
- Multi-Carrier Shipping Station with Rate Shop
- Multi-Location Distribution Centers for Geo-SavingsTM
- Labor Management + High Level Security
About Shipedge: Shipedge is a software platform that has been in development by Jose Flores and his development team since 2008. At first Shipedge managed its own fulfillment warehouse network. At the end of 2014, the company sold its fulfillment warehouses and it now focuses purely on its software. The solution was created as both an order management system and a warehouse management system all in one. Shipedge aims to solve the absence of an obvious software platform for 3PLs that need a reliable and accurate software system to manage their entire fulfillment operations. Today Shipedge powers numerous warehouses across the United States and has allowed their clients to increase accuracy across the board while increasing the speed and productivity of their operations dramatically. Shipedge continues to grow and add newer features as it continues its journey to becoming the number one WMS and OMS cloud-based platform available.
