Explore Consulting Introduces the Third Party Logistics (3PL) Connector for NetSuite

Explore’s CloudConnect platform continues to provide the industry’s most flexible and proven solution for integration in the cloud.


Bellevue, WA – June 22, 2009 – Explore Consulting, a top NetSuite Solution Provider and leader in on-demand technologies, announced today the launch of their Third Party Logistics (3PL) Connector for NetSuite. This latest add-on to Explore’s CloudConnect integration platform provides all of the necessary connectivity to allow for seamless automated data exchange between NetSuite and any third-party fulfillment center or logistics provider.


Many companies using NetSuite outsource their inventory and shipping to a Third Party Logistics Provider (3PL), but that can create significant inefficiencies without an automated integration solution. Explore’s flexible solution can communicate with any warehouse management platform using flat files, XML, web services, EDI 940/945 documents or other API’s. The 3PL Connector enables clients to automatically send orders and customer information to the 3PL, receive shipment information back from the 3PL, and import this information into NetSuite. The same process applies to Purchase Orders.


“CloudConnect gives you a complete enterprise class solution for integrating your fulfillment center to NetSuite,” said Jeremy DeSpain, COO and Partner of Explore Consulting. “You get the entire solution with implementation and ongoing support from one of the most experienced NetSuite Solution Providers.”


Explore has successfully deployed the 3PL Connector for several customers including Semprae Laboratories and Dash Navigation. “Our solution required tight integration with our internal [NetSuite] systems as well as our third-party logistics facility,” said Charlotte Narvaez, Business Applications Manager for Dash Navigation. “Explore’s experienced NetSuite consultants guided us through a complete NetSuite configuration process that is allowing our business to operate more efficiently today.”


CloudConnect is the most complete software-as-a-service (SaaS) integration solution available in the market, allowing you to connect virtually any external data source to NetSuite including ERP applications, CRM applications, file systems, middleware, web services or any external database on a completely hosted and managed service in the cloud. Solutions start at only $500 per month with full multi-system communication, error handling, notifications and scheduler. A full-featured enterprise solution is also available, which includes dashboard management with role-based security. Once deployed, the solution is hosted in an industry-leading data center with a 100% network uptime guarantee and it is managed by the same team that developed the integration solution providing the highest possible level of ongoing support.
