Live at thousands of stores, Manhattan Associates' Store Inventory &
Fulfillment solution provides powerful, inventory management and order
management capabilities that are purpose-built for high employee turnover
store environments.

According to Nikki Baird, research analyst, Retail Systems Research (RSR),
omni-channel's impact on store operations has been significant. "Leading
retailers have quickly learned that trying to manage a growing volume of
ship-from-store and pick-up-in-store without the right tools—especially for
in-store employees—is a recipe for disaster. And as the focus shifts from
enabling these kinds of capabilities to optimizing those capabilities, tools
for store associates will only become even more important."

Specific benefits of the updated Store Inventory & Fulfillment solution
include:

  oSimplicity. Designed to save retailers training time and money, the
    solution sets the standard for "zero training" as retail associates can
    begin using the application with little guidance or instruction.
    
  oSpeed. Store associates can quickly perform any type of order fulfillment
    request such as ship-from-store to customer's home, pick up in store, and
    store-to-store transfer. They'll also have all the tools necessary to
    improve inventory accuracy and ensure they're not wasting time searching
    for products that may not even be in the store.
    
  oAgility. Store Inventory & Fulfillment helps interweave the new
    omni-channel demands with the frenzy of the sales floor in a snap.
    Whenever the sales floor demands their attention, retail associates can
    "pause" an omni-channel activity at any point and seamlessly pick back up
    right where they left off.

"Whether it's facilitating order fulfillment from store inventory or executing
a critical cycle count, Store Inventory & Fulfillment provides a complete
solution for transforming a brick and mortar store into an omni-channel
enabled center of excellence," said Scott Fenwick, senior director of product
strategy, Manhattan Associates.

NRF attendees can see a demo of the application's comprehensive capabilities
in actual sales floor situations at Manhattan's in-booth retail store model.
