PROFITABLE OMNICHANNEL FULFILMENT

Rising consumer demand for fast and free delivery and global disruptions is accelerating the use of stores for fulfilment. At the same time, ever-increasing financial pressures require innovative ways to decrease inventory costs and improve margins.

INTELLIGENT FULFILMENT OPTIMISATION

Leading omnichannel retailers are using future systems to learn to make instantaneous decisions about the most profitable way to meet a customer promise. Which store is the best option to ensure delivery of a next-day promise? Where should the inventory be pulled from to avoid costly markdowns? The decisions are endless, the data is monumental and everything must be executed seamlessly within core order management processes for optimal performance.

Manhattan Active® Order Management uses Adaptive Network Fulfilment technology to help retailers intelligently manage order fulfilment across their complete omnichannel network. It uses machine learning to dynamically optimise fulfilment decisions in real time.

By evaluating large numbers of parameters across distribution centres, transportation, stores and customers, it optimises order routing in real time to select the lowest cost option for the business while ensuring customer promises are always kept.
