Online Warehouse Inventory Management is pivotal and can be the key to the success of your eCommerce business.
You want to be able to work in an eCommerce business that runs efficiently and effectively at every stage and you can’t do that if you’re not in control of your key assets, your money, or the demands of your customers.
Effective warehousing requires a solid Warehouse Management System. Our WMS – 3PL Central – ensures you have sufficient stock to meet orders, comprehensive SKU detail to enable informed inventory rotation and the flexibility to pick the item, inner, outer and pallet level.
Our WMS system 3PL Central is flexible because we appreciate products are picked differently from a single item, inners, outers or palletised.
Most of all, you need access to this information in real-time, at your fingertips for your eCommerce platform. All our clients can view their WMS and inventory levels any time of day or night (24/7), on any web browser or mobile device with internet access.

The client was a small consumer electronics start-up company. They have subsequently grown significantly and now turnover c. USD $80m p.a., with Horizon International supporting their growth and new market entry throughout.
Their initial production run in Southern China was the result of a highly successful crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter. Their initial Kickstarter target was to raise $100,000, however their final achieved funding hit $1.5million – 15 times their original projection.
Therefore, they had to produce 15 times as many units and deliver these directly to 15,000 consumers around the globe.
Horizon International are pleased and proud to have worked closely with Josh Renouf, founder & designer of the amazing Barisieur from his initial Kickstarter product launch to over 2,000 global backers through to his evolution into an eCommerce and Retail business.
A week before the end of the crowd-funding campaign, Virgin StartUp got in touch and arranged a meeting between Josh and Richard Branson. The success of this meeting helped lead to Kickstarter making the Barisieur ‘project of the day’.
Josh moved the campaign over to Indiegogo Demand and continued to raise money and pre-orders which ended up approaching $1,000,000.
