• Users report pick productivity increases of up to 50%

International supply chain solutions provider TouchPath is extending its peak-season-scalable ‘Touch3PL’ third party logistics solution with the addition of a “power picking” ‘Control Centre’ option, the company has announced. Control Centre delivers power-picking productivity increases of up to 50% according to logistics users. Other benefits include the facility to assign picks to warehouse operatives on-screen, track pick status in real time and measure pickers’ performance by individual and by team, including time spent on ‘non-productive’ tasks such as cleaning or loading.
Touch3PL is geared to the third party logistics market: the number of software licences can be increased and decreased in line with seasonal and other 3PL demands and its core functions can be run on desktop PCs or handheld radio terminals. Touch3PL is marketed in on-premise, hosted cloud and pay-as-you-go versions, with global 24/7 user support and integration with leading carriers and e-commerce platforms. It currently supports twelve languages in both user interfaces and shipping documents.
Touch3PL enables the full range of warehouse processes. The system supports different charge rates by customer, warehouse, item and process and informs customers when their stock moves or an order is fulfilled. Touch 3PL also includes bill of materials (BOM) maintenance to support kitting, relabelling and component (re)assembly.
Touch3PL can run stand-alone or integrated with all mainstream ERP and other supply chain and legacy systems.
TouchPath systems’ technology captures more supply chain information for better business performance and faster ROI. Its unique custom-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems use building blocks that allow TouchPath software to be fully tailored with no limits, in line with user-defined business rules and processes, at a lower price and with faster deployment, according to the company.
TouchPath has operations in the UK (Halifax HX1 5ER) and the USA (High Point, NC 27265).
