Starmount's integration with Manhattan's proven Enterprise Order Management,
Omni-Channel Customer Service and Store Inventory & Fulfillment solutions will
give store associates access to enterprise-wide inventory and rich customer
data from their mobile devices. Store associates can use the information to
locate and sell merchandise in the store, make recommendations for additional
products based on history and preferences, place an order for products sourced
anywhere in the retailer's organization, and arrange delivery to the
consumer's home with one single-swipe transaction. Additionally, retail
associates in the call center and in the store now have a true omni-channel
view of all customer transactions, regardless of where they occurred.

"Integrating mobile selling in the store with enterprise-wide inventory
availability and rich customer information is a powerful combination and a way
to extend the value of the store," said Brian Kinsella, vice president of
order management. "Historically retailers have had to choose between a
feature-rich clienteling and selling application or an omni-channel solution
for saving sales. Now retailers can have both the feature richness their store
associates need in a selling application and the ability to sell against
network inventory provided by the omni-channel platform. Additionally, the
omni-channel customer service and mobile-based store fulfillment provide
end-to-end coverage for today's complex omni-channel fulfillment and
settlement requirements."

"Manhattan's open API and web services made the integration easy," said Jerry
Rightmer, chief product and strategy officer, Starmount. By combining
"save-the-sale" and "endless aisle" transactions seamlessly with the
clienteling and store checkout process, retailers are now able to blur the
lines between selling products online and in-store. "We are excited to be part
of the industry's most comprehensive end-to-end omni-channel solution for
retail."
