Camelot's Excalibur software is a great 3PL solution

Although our initial configuration started off rocky, Camelot has proven to be an excellent provider for WMS software. Their customer service group is genuinely one of the best groups I have ever worked with. They genuinely care about what they are doing and work hard to solve problems.

Pros

Camelot’s Excalibur WMS is a fantastic bit of software. It is built on top of MS Dynamics Nav which makes the system highly configurable both within Camelot’s build and in the out-of-the-box Dynamics build. Being a small business owner means, among other things, that I am my own IT department, and Camelot’s support is absolutely wonderful to work with. To date we have not had a problem that has not been solved by one-on-one work with Camelot’s team and some creative thinking. All that, plus the fact that their rates are incredibly reasonable, makes them a great choice for any 3PL provider out there. I highly recommend Camelot to anyone who will listen!

Cons

One of the only drawbacks is the difficulty of deployment. It has taken a good deal of time and effort to tailor the system to our needs, but I feel that a lot of that is due to improvement of our own processes rather than fault of Camelot. The other drawback is that some modules are limited in capability and customization. When we first began using Camelot software, we deployed our system with their tablet scanning called Mobile Link. While the system looked good, we were not able to integrate the system into our processes due to the limits of customization of that module. We have since configured their WIMS scanning module with great success.

Reasons for Choosing Excalibur WMS

Camelot was an economical option that seemed to be best suited to fit our needs as a 3PL.

Camelot review

Camelot was a vast improvement from our old WMS and does mostly what we need it to.

Pros

The system is very customizable. It is somewhat easy to train new users basic functions.

Cons

Paying a monthly service charge and still getting billed every time we need help with something. It's expensive to upgrade to Excalibur so we are still on an older version.

Reasons for Choosing Excalibur WMS

The screens didn't look as busy as the other options.

Expensive Software, Terrible Customer Service and unconsistent Technical Support

The overall experience in using the software is positive but overshadowed by the very high cost to implement it, the basically Non-Existent Customer Service a weak Tech Support team.

Pros

Some modules are pretty solid and well done such as Data Interface, Communication Manager, TMS and Billing. Item Table is well done and you can really control a multitude of parameters and therefore manage a big variety of different products.

Cons

The out of the box version of the software is extremely basic with very limited features and terrible documents. Good for very small companies that are handling only few limited items and that operate a warehouse manually without the use of technology. For more complex and modern operations (3pl warehouse dealing with multitude of different items, ecommerce, picking and packing) you really have to purchase a multitude of Modules and spend tons of money to customize basically every single aspect and functionality of the software. Some modules are really outdated and not working properly such as the WIMS module (use of scanners for in and out operations) and Document manager.

The next level

The experience has been positive. The implementation manager has been a great resource. The productivity gains have been apparent throughout the entire process.

Pros

Flexibility on customization for the following: Client setup, Ease of use, Billing, Process management, reporting, visibility to pending orders, charges and inventory. The goals which the system met are: Ensure all revenue is captured and have a easy way to view outstanding charges. The system to be user friendly which is being Microsoft based and will the system keep up with ever evolving world of logistics. Reporting and EDI/API integration. The last goal for the company to be on one universal platform and streamline processes. Also, the system has the ability to take warehousing to the next level with E-Commerce and ability to work with other programs such as driverless guided forklifts. The system is changing how the company handles internal processes along with customer facing documentation, reporting and visibility.

Cons

Needs updated training guides. Also needs more training guides on all the functionality of the system, currently too dependent on Camelot employees to train certain sections. Also some of the training material is outdated ie: training guide shows a certain field name but in the system the field name has changed which becomes confusing. Even within the system some Field names listed are called something else depending where the user is in they system. Accounting side not as robust as hoped. The Mobilelink program is a bit limiting. Lacking capabilities in the program on documenting value add services in receipts/shipment, No location for notes, cannot flag product as damaged.

Reasons for Switching to Excalibur WMS

Reporting, documentation, visibility, productivity gains, ability to implement metrics and flexibility of the system overall.

Excellent, flexible software and Company to work with. Lots of capability for the $!

Pros

Flexible, adaptable, and capable software solution for 3rd Party Logistics/Public Warehousing industry. Software has ability to email transactions/invoice, manage/attach documents, handle EDI, works with RF scanners, and can be customized. This is a scalable solution that has far more capabilities--really boils down to whether users want to take the time to setup, implement, explore to see how they can better use the software to enhance operational and administrative processes. Users have access to the backend, giving users complete control.

Cons

Updates/releases, etc. require dedicated/extensive testing as all users platforms are configured slightly different--because of the freedom to customize. There are many "modules"--modules are rarely packaged together, but individual. This helps keep overall price reasonable (do not need to purchase what you are not going to use), but users can expect to pay for modules before having desired functionality. Overall, this is an excellent product.
