Manhattan Associates will help organisations identify a path to greater supply chain agility when it kicks-off its annual 'Exchange' series of customer conferences in Europe. A comprehensive programme of interactive sessions and keynotes will enable organisations from the retail sector, third party logistics and other industry verticals to innovate across their businesses and make their supply chain operations more agile and efficient. This year's events will showcase how Manhattan's revolutionary Platform Thinking approach is enabling customers to create flexible and agile supply chains at a lower cost of technology ownership.
Starting on 4th October in Oxford in the UK, the event will then move to Lille in France on 6th October and Tilburg in the Netherlands on 11th October. Through client and industry speakers plus key Manhattan Associates executives, delegates will be able to hear about combating retail challenges, boosting supply chain performance and how to increase staying power in the retail sector.
Steve Smith, senior vice president, EMEA, at Manhattan Associates, commented, "A challenging macro-economic environment, reduced footfall, margin pressure and increasingly discerning customers are just a few of the trends that are driving retailers to focus on projects that support operational cost reduction, improved customer service, international growth and channel expansion. The key to making such projects deliver tangible results is creating visibility across the entire supply chain and maximising the degree of agility in the way orders are fulfilled. Many retailers will find it difficult to establish a multi-channel and / or international strategy that meets consumer demand, while being brand consistent and profitable all at the same time. We have customers doing amazing new things and applying intelligence within their supply chains to achieve this goal. The European Exchange events are a chance to share insight on these projects and help others reach those same heights."
