Small ecommerce companies turn to 3PLs (Third Party Logistics) and WarehouseOS for a variety of reasons starting with labor constraints. Onboarding new associates can be very costly, and unless using new tablet-based solutions such as WarehouseOS, many companies experience each new hire with a slow productivity ramp before fully effective.
Technology solutions allow companies to delay the utilization or implementation of a 3PL because standardized processes allow new associates effective on-boarding and encourage longer labor employee retention. Warehouse functions can be systemically driven, driving maximum labor effectiveness. Understanding the 3PLs access to labor and their retention strategy must be a determining factor in evaluating the best 3PL for small ecommerce operations.
Cycle counting ensures that a high percentage of orders will be processed alleviating cancelled orders. Cycle counting must be a daily function with active pick locations, reserve locations counted regularly. Year-end audits are vastly improved with a strong cycle-counting protocol available in 24/7 real-time data available with WarehouseOS.

WarehouseOS (https://warehousemobilesolutions.com), a new tablet-based Warehouse Operations System brings warehouses into the future today. Warehouse management systems have been around for a long time with too many companies still using the RF gun to conduct inventory management, scan in new items, and pick orders. The RF gun solutions typically cost double what modern solutions offer. WarehouseOS and associated apps have been developed to make everything about the warehouse easier and better. Apps allow small or large companies to receive products, manage inventory, perform cycle counting, conduct single picks or do batch picking, verify items picked and pack them into boxes.
A team of experts in material handling equipment and solutions developed WarehouseOS to maximize the throughput of warehousing and distributing facilities. From small eCommerce, to high volume SKU facilities, from omni-channel companies to FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), WarehouseOS is equipped to handle everything. From small startups with simple needs to complex, large distribution centers, WarehouseOS is the tablet solution which enables manufacturers and distribution centers to be a step ahead of the competition.
