Ongoing Warehouse is growing in Norway. More and more companies in the 3PL-sector i Norway choose Ongoing as their WMS. Read more about one of our Norwegian customers Colliflow in the Norwegian website "Logistikk og Ledelse" - or read our pressrelease below. 

Outsourcing av lageret med skybasert lagerstyring

Colliflow er leverandør av tredjepartslogistikk og håndterer virksomheters varelager og logistikk. Colliflow automatiserer logistikkoppgaver og gir nettbutikker og bedrifter med varelager, tilgang til effektiv lagring, transport og distribusjon.

Colliflow benytter Ongoing Warehouse, et av Nordens ledende, skybaserte lagerstyringsverktøy.

– Fordelene med et nettbasert lagerstyringssystem er mange. Har du tilgang til nettet, kan du få tilgang til systemet når som helst, hvor som helst og fra hvilken som helst datamaskin eller håndholdt enhet. Våre kunder har tilgang til varelageret sitt til enhver tid og kan få informasjon om blant annet lagerbeholdning, statistikk og pakkesporing, forteller Rune Wright Lia, daglig leder i Colliflow AS.

Effektiv systemintegrasjon er en annen fordel ved moderne, nettbaserte lagerstyringssystemer av denne typen.

– Våre kunder knytter seg til Colliflow og får nyte godt av en lang rekke fordeler, som automatisert ordremottak, leveransestatistikk i sanntid, ordresporing, alltid oppdatert lagersaldo og mye mer. Vi tilbyr en sømløs systemintegrasjon mot de fleste nettbutikkløsninger og ERP-systemer, fortsetter Wright Lia.

Lightup.no er en av de mange Colliflow-kundene som setter pris på den sømløse systemintegrasjonen.

– Nå er vi i full gang med et lager- og ordresystem som snakker med nettbutikken. Ordreflyten har blitt automatisert, og systemet funger veldig godt. Vi er spesielt fornøyd med at innkjøpsbehov beregnes automatisk når vi oppretter innkjøpsordre. Hver dag sparer vi halvannen time bare på å slippe den manuelle håndteringen av innkjøpsordrer, sier daglig leder i Lightup.no, Martin Erlandsen.

Når ordrene er plukket og pakket, sendes de til transportadministrasjonssystemet EDI-Soft Consignor.

– Ordrene overføres fra lagerstyringsverktøyet Ongoing til Consignor for å booke, transportere og skrive ut fraktdokumenter. Systemene fungerer sømløst med Ongoing og gir vår kunder full oversikt og kostnadskontroll, forklarer Wright Lia.

Why the Gazelle Award matters

First and foremost, it is a security for our customers and partners. Ongoing is financially stable and we are here to stay and continue to develop the system in close cooperation with our customers and partners. 

Ongoing Warehouse has, like several of our customers, been appointed a “Gazelle Company” again this year by Swedish Business magazine Dagens Industri (DI). We may not be those who care much about awards, but it obviously feels good to be called a “Gazelle”. Since its inception ten years ago, Ongoing Warehouse has been growing steadily, with good profitability and only using own money. In short, a growing company with very healthy finances. Why does this matter? First and foremost, it is a security for our customers and partners. Ongoing is financially stable and we are here to stay and continue to develop the system in close cooperation with our customers and partners. It is also important for our employees that we not only growing but do it in a responsibly and stable manner.

The term “Gazelle” was coined by US economist David Birch when he examined which companies grow and create jobs. It was not the big companies ("the Elephants") nor the small companies (the "Mice"). Birch discovered a type of fast-growing company that accounted for only 3% of all companies in the United States but accounted for 70% of all new jobs! He called them “the Gazelles”, “they run fast and jump high”!

The benefits of using the web-based WMS Ongoing Warehouse for 3PL customers

Companies looking for a 3PL logistics provider contact Ongoing Warehouse with questions about the benefits of outsourcing their warehouse handling to a logistics company using our WMS. We have therefore summarized some pros for you in the text below.


For you as a goods owner it is important that the people who manage your inventory and logistics handling, have a competent Warehouse Management System (WMS) that is easy to integrate with your ERP systems, Web shops and other surrounding systems such as transport- and distribution systems.

The fact that Ongoing Warehouse is web-based means transparency. You can log in to view information about your products such as stock balance, traceability and much more. Many logistics providers use the web-based warehouse system, Ongoing Warehouse, which is the most widely used warehouse management system (WMS) in the Nordic region as well as it is used in several other countries in Europe.

Below we have listed five advantages of using Ongoing Warehouse seen from your point of view as a goods owner:

1. Ready-made Integrations

Integrations make life easier as manual work disappears, reducing lead-times and the risk of errors.

Ongoing has already developed integrations to the most commonly used ERP systems, web shops and transport administrative systems. If you have any of these systems, it's quick and easy to integrate with Ongoing. This saves you time and money because the integration is already done.

An integrated flow of goods can for example be set-up like this; purchasing orders and orders with article and customer information automatically transmitted to Ongoing for pick and pack, and then electronically sent to one or several transport systems for further distribution to customers. Ongoing´s ready-made integrations with major transport- and distributions systems, such as Unifaun, Consignor and ShipCloud, makes it quick and easy to deliver your products to your customers. Ongoing, with integrations to surrounding systems in the logistics chain, is thus a complete system set-up that can be quickly implemented for your product flow.

2. An open and well-documented API (technical interface)

Ongoing Warehouse exposes a standardized Application Programming Interface (or API) which third parties can use to integrate with the system. This makes it possible for any external system to send and retrieve information from Ongoing. Either the adjoining system supplier can do the integration, or you can hire a consultant, or let your own developer do the integration by using the API. This means that any party with system knowledge can quickly and easily integrate a system with Ongoing.

For more information about the API and how it works, see Ongoing's Developer site.

3. Quick and easy to set up efficient handling of your goods

Ongoing Warehouse is a standard system that has acquired extensive system expertise over the past ten years to effectively set up different types of product flows in the system. Ongoing has the standard features and standard components needed to quickly and efficiently set-up the most common goods flows. This allows efficient handling in the warehouse to a low cost. Examples of standard features in Ongoing are e-commerce picking, frozen / refrigerated goods (expire date), serial number, batch picking, and much more.

In Ongoing, you can also quickly set up different types of standard scannings to streamline the handling of your goods and reduce errors.

4. Keep track of your goods 24/7 through Customer Log-in

Ongoing Warehouse is web-based, which means that you can log-in to the system at any time to get all relevant information about your products. It is a big advantage for you. You avoid unnecessary and time-consuming communication with your logistics provider. If you are wondering about something or quickly need information you can easily access the system yourself. You can for example see inventory balance, monitor and follow up orders, see track & trace and much more. When using scanning, you can in real-time follow inbound- and outbound deliveries. You can also see different types of statistics, for example to follow up that the handling of your goods is managed efficiently. Another advantage is that you have full traceability of your goods, which is a great benefit if your products require serial number or batch handling.

5. A robust and market leading WMS means safety

For you as a goods owner, it is safe for both you and your products to employ a proven WMS used by many companies in Sweden, Scandinavia and other countries. Ongoing Warehouse is the most widely used warehouse system in the Nordic region with approximately 3,000 companies’ products running in the system and thousands of people using it daily. The software company Ongoing Warehouse AB, which is behind the system, is specialized in Warehouse Management Systems and has been in existence for ten years. The company is growing steadily, has a very sound economy, and continuously develops new features and improvements in the system.
