Manhattan Associates Honoured at The Australian Business Awards 2017

SYDNEY and ATLANTA, 12 September, 2017

Manhattan Associates has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner in The Australian Business Awards 2017 for Logistical Innovation. The award recognises Manhattan’s Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) and its expertise in helping Australian companies adapt to the changing retail landscape and respond to consumers’ evolving service requirements. It is the third time that Manhattan Associates has received an Australian Business Award, having previously won the Best Software Product category in 2015 and the Product Innovation category in 2014, both for its Manhattan SCALE solution.

“This recognition reflects both our 27 years of focus and investment in supply chain and omni-channel commerce innovation and how our solutions are enabling Australian organisations to respond to their customers’ rapidly changing needs,” said Raghav Sibal, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Manhattan Associates. “The expectations of today’s consumers are soaring and they want their goods delivered faster and more conveniently. With our WMS and complementary solutions, such as Distributed Order Management, retailers, manufacturing brands, wholesalers and distributors are equipping themselves with flexible fulfilment capabilities. By enabling them to work their whole network harder – leveraging inventory in transit, within stores, at suppliers, as well as in distribution centres – they can fulfil orders quicker and more profitably.”

Well-known Australian companies, such as Country Road Group, Casella Family Brands, eStore Logistics and Jeanswest, are just a few of the organisations that rely on Manhattan’s Supply Chain and Omni-Channel solutions to boost service levels, improve operating margins and drive ongoing business growth.

“Today, companies are facing a highly competitive and continuously changing business landscape,” said Ms. Tara Johnston, Australian Business Awards Program Director. “In this context, the performance of companies depends more than ever on their flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness. New technological possibilities have the potential to transform the way companies operate within their respective industries with long-term gains in efficiency, productivity and customer loyalty. Each year, the ABA100 Winners are recognised for their commitment to business and product innovation and for their achievements in transforming business practices and end user experiences.”

The Australian Business Award for Logistical Innovation, announced on 16 August 2017, recognises products and services that provide innovative solutions for new and existing market needs in the fields of logistics and supply chain management.
