needed a solution that was easy to implement, easy to configure, and quick to
launch into the marketplace," Dino Moler, executive vice president, client
solutions for LeSaint Logistics, said. "The strength of the platform enables
us to compete with the larger providers and still give our customers the 'big
fish in the small pond' touch."

compliance and everything in between, according to Moler. "Being able to
highlight Manhattan SCALE as part of our infrastructure has become an
effective sales tool. We've been able to routinely compete for business with
companies that are seven to eight times larger," said Moler.
