Infocomm’s integrated 3PL freight software has gone live at Sydney-headquartered M3 Logistics, an independent specialist in warehousing and distribution for suppliers of electrical appliances. Our single-platform is a fully integrated logistics, transport and warehouse software system with a modular approach covering daily transport operations, management and planning, maintenance, fatigue compliance, traceability, distribution and 3PL warehouse management software. It brings together all sales and operations related information into one central location that can be accessed from anywhere at any time.
Initially, M3 Logistics deployed the full functionality of the Infocomm icsLogistics solution except for mobile scanning, which will form part of a second deployment phase.
Managing director of M3 Logistics Malcolm Stanton said: “Our mission as a business is to provide a real alternative for suppliers and retailers who wish to improve the performance of their supply chain. At the same time, we invest in the latest technologies to improve information flow for our customers and to take advantage of technology cost savings.“
M3 Logistics reviewed three systems and chose Infocomm’s icsLogistics based on several key features, including its rich customisation functionality and overall simplicity.
“We also liked its common sense design for a business such as M3 Logistics where each of our customers has an individual way of doing things and we need to be flexible to our customer requirements. A lot of processes are different for each customer and Infocomm’s icsLogistics will absolutely be able to handle this approach thereby speeding up processing and providing even better customer service.”Malcolm Stanton, Managing Director
How Our Custom 3PL Freight Software Delivered an End-to-End Solution for M3
Specifically, Infocomm will enable M3 Logistics to scan products in and out, handle service tracking, and provide support in changing locations as products are moved around the warehouse. It will also handle reporting so that M3 Logistics can report on scan and pick rates and the duration of time required for picking product, handling features such as stock holding, dispatching, order processing, receipt processing and managing transport and financials. Manual filing at M3 Logistics will all be but eliminated once Infocomm’s icsLogistics is fully implemented.
