First Company to Offer the Complete Footprint for Supply Chain Planning and Execution 
Leading supply chain solutions provider, Manhattan Associates, Inc. has released its latest set of solutions.  The companys 2006 Supply Chain Management release is its first commercial release to include both supply chain planning and supply chain execution.  This integrated approach to supply chain management--combining planning and execution--is the basis of Manhattan Associates solutions roadmap.  Leading companies in the retail, consumer goods, life sciences, food, industrial wholesale, high-tech/electronics, logistics service provider and government markets will be able to turn to Manhattan Associates for all their supply chain needs.

As its first industry-specific initiative that underpins the companys new direction, Manhattan Associates has also unveiled its Supply Chain Solutions for Retail a strategic framework to fulfil the planning and execution needs of retailers. Through this initiative, retailers can use Manhattan Associates Integrated Planning Solutions and Integrated Logistics Solutions to solve the specific challenges they face in todays demand-driven supply chain.

As the only solutions provider to offer the complete footprint for supply chain management, Manhattan Associates addresses the comprehensive needs of retailers of all sizes. Operating on a common business platform, the companys traditional execution offering has expanded to include Advanced Planning, Replenishment and Demand Forecasting.  Manhattan Associates Supply Chain Solutions help retailers:

  • Use a common demand forecast across both planning and execution;
  • Optimise warehouse operations including labour, slotting and performance;
  • Create merchandise plans by channel and across channels;
  • Manage private labels, collaborating with trading partners worldwide;
  • Run an efficient transportation network for both inbound and outbound transportation from planning and procurement to execution; and
  • Handle forecasting and replenishment for both stores and distribution centres in one solution.

Todays market is becoming increasingly complex and competitive for retailers of all sizes. Large, multi-channel retailers can no longer operate selling channels as individual silos. In order to optimise their supply chain they must have visibility by channel and across channels. Smaller, niche retailers are faced with the pressures of having small margins for error, less resources and new competition entering the market each and every day. Manhattan Associates solutions help companies of all sizes address these challenges.

The integration of the former Evants demand-driven retail planning and replenishment into Manhattans supply chain execution platform establishes a powerful platform of enterprise functionality for thought-leading retailers, said analyst group AMR Research, a provider of independent analysis and actionable advice to supply chain and technology executives worldwide.

Manhattan Associates is dedicated to helping retailers make their supply chains more efficient and effective to meet customer expectations, said Pete Sinisgalli, Manhattan Associates president and chief executive officer. With our broad and deep solution for supply chain management and our focused commitment to this market, we continue to make advancements and deliver solutions that todays companies need.
