Manhattan Associates Earns Supply Chain Innovation Honor at the 2013 Mercury
SYDNEY, Australia and ATLANTA, Oct. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Supply
Chain Commerce provider Manhattan Associates (Nasdaq:MANH) today announced it
has won the 2013 Supply Chain Innovation Award at Logistics & Materials
Handling's Mercury Awards ceremony. Manhattan Associates was recognized for
its supply chain commerce innovation work at Super Retail Group, a leading
retailer in the automotive after-market and sporting and leisure goods
sectors. A recent upgrade of Manhattan's supply chain commerce platform has
provided the retailer with an optimized supply chain network and the
capability to build a comprehensive, omni-channel distribution capability
across its operations in Australia and New Zealand.
The Manhattan solution has already helped Super Retail Group standardize and
optimize operations across five 'multi-use' distribution centers (DCs)
handling inventory flows for eight different business units. This has reduced
lead times to stores and facilitated the company's recent expansion. The
upgraded system is also supporting the group's growing omni-channel
requirements and will be a key enabler for its future growth.
Graham Chad, general manager, Group Logistics, at Super Retail Group,
commented, "As a long-standing customer of Manhattan Associates, we have seen
its supply chain solutions evolve to meet the demands of the digital
revolution. It is a combination of this commitment to innovation, the flexible
and scalable nature of its solutions to support omni-channel commerce, and the
ability of those solutions to help drive revenue and relationships that have
earned Manhattan this esteemed accolade."
Raghav Sibal, managing director, Australia and New Zealand at Manhattan
Associates accepted the award on behalf of the Manhattan team and commented,
"This award further validates Manhattan Associates' leadership position in
Australia & New Zealand. We have a strong focus on research and development
with more than $300 million invested in our supply chain commerce solutions
since 2006. We are delighted to have another long-standing customer benefit
from our investment in solutions that help them get closer to their customers.
This recognition is also testament to the experienced team we have in the
region and their dedication to our rapidly growing customer base."
Manhattan Associates was also acknowledged as a finalist in the categories of
'Logistics Leader' and 'Best Warehouse and/or Storage Solution' at this year's
Mercury Awards, held at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf in Sydney, Australia on
