With its end-to-end supply chain management system, SCExpert by Made4net gives organizations an agile, configurable solution that bridges the gap that often exists between a company's enterprise systems (HR, ERP, MRP) and operational requirements.
Built on Microsoft technology, the SCExpert platform adapts to an organization's existing IT environment. It includes a suite of applications that can be deployed individually or combined and then modified to meet the unique needs of a number of industries, including 3PL, apparel, pharmaceuticals, electronics and more.
Although the solution offers a number of applications, SCExpert allows users to manage all supply chain execution functions from a single data model and a single user interface, offering a consistent, intuitive workflow. WarehouseExpert is the system's highly scalable WMS module that provides users a flexible environment to manage all operations in the warehouse, from replenishment, picking, labels, yard management, loading and more.
Included in the solution as well is a labor standards module (LaborExpert), route planning (Routing Expert), proof of delivery (DeliveryExpert) and vendor managed inventory, all built on the same infrastructure. It also includes built-in RF terminals, voice connectors and more, and can be installed on both client servers or in the cloud.

It has all of the functionality that larger tier one systems provide at a competitive price point, all offered by a fantastic vendor that focuses on building a strong partnership.
The UI could use a little bit of aesthetic touch up.
Be sure to leave plenty of time for development, configuration, and testing.

SCExpert (now WarehouseExpert) has the features of a much more expensive product. It is like night and day compared to our old WMS. It is more customizable than we ever thought we needed and leaves us plenty of room to grow our business and implement efficiency improvements in our Fulfillment Center.
The dashboard views aren't as dynamic as I'd like, but I hear they are working on improving that. Also, one of their competitors uses a telnet interface on the portable scanners which has less latency than a web interface.
When looking for a 3PL or WMS solution, take a hard look at the features you need and don't need based on your current business practices. There can be a strong urge to bend your potential new solution to your current procedures when perhaps there exists a better way to do it using new tools. Find your problem areas and ask the different vendors how their solution would tackle your current pain points.

We discovered this warehouse management system that best serves our needs and budget. We would have never discovered this solution without the services of Software Advice. The warehouse management system (WMS) we were looking for had a range of specific requirements, and SCExpert (now known as Warehouse Expert) provides all these benefits plus many more.
It still takes considerable effort to configure this enterprise solution, but that's an essential part of the implementation process.
Talking to the vendors is essential, but having real demonstrations -- and more than one or 2 -- with a range of users is an essential part of the review process.
