Warehouse Management Systems for 3PL Providers
Purpose-Built or Retrofit?
Five business drivers that make this decision a no-brainer
When selecting a Warehouse Management System (WMS), 3PL executives face a seemingly endless number of options. It’s undoubtedly a challenge to sift through all of these options and come to the right decision for their company. Arguably, the most important question to answer, in this process is whether to select a solution that is purpose-built for their industry or to select one that has been retrofitted for a multi-client, 3PL environment.
While this is clearly an important decision, one may ask… purpose-built versus retrofit… is this a trick question? Why would one ever consider a retrofit over something that is purpose-built? It’s not likely that you would be comfortable driving a car that was retrofitted with a go-cart engine. However, as crazy as the question may sound, perhaps the following scenario can shed some light on its relevance and it may even hit close to home.
