Manhattan Associates and Logiciel Target Thailand’s $30 Billion E-Commerce Market
12 June, 2015
Manhattan Associates, Inc., (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced the appointment of Logiciel Consulting and Development Co., a market leading consultancy specialising in supply chain commerce and distribution management solutions, as a Manhattan GeoPartner (geographical partner) in Thailand. The partners’ business growth efforts will be focused on a rapidly expanding e-commerce sector being driven by rising smartphone penetration, greater government commitment to supporting the country’s digital economy and a continually-improving transport and logistics infrastructure.
Whilst the companies have worked together on a number of projects since 2012, Logiciel’s attainment of GeoPartner status is testimony to Manhattan’s confidence in Logiciel to support existing customers as well as help it grow its client base in Thailand. Logiciel will focus on selling, deploying and supporting Manhattan’s Distribution Management Solutions in the market.
Kanlaya Domdom, director of Operations at Logiciel, commented, “With Thailand's e-commerce market set to top 1 trillion baht (US$30 Billion) in 2016 , we’re seeing a wave of opportunity from online retailers and distributors, around the need to have more adaptive and flexible supply chains to meet online and omni-channel fulfilment needs. The combined Manhattan and Logiciel offering is already creating exceptional value for multiple companies in Thailand, helping them deliver on their customer service, distribution efficiency and business growth goals, and we look forward to extending our role in the enablement of Thailand’s digital economy in the coming years.”
“Logiciel’s elevation to GeoPartner status represents a key milestone for Manhattan Associates in Thailand and underlines our growth ambitions in the region,” commented Richard Wright, general manager at Manhattan Associates, Southeast Asia. “Our joint Supply Chain Commerce Solutions proposition will enable businesses to serve customers in ways that earn their loyalty which in turn will drive revenue and margins.”
“Logiciel’s partnership with the global leader in Supply Chain Commerce Solutions will be mutually beneficial,” continued Domdom. “It will allow Manhattan to continue building its operations in Thailand and strengthen our own position in the market, enabling us to offer local and international companies operating in Thailand additional options for supply chain commerce expertise."
