SYDNEY, June 25, 2013
Global supply chain commerce provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting at this year’s Smart Conference and Expo, taking place from the 26 – 27 June, at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour, at exhibition stand D34.
Manhattan Associates will use the conference to announce details of the company’s new vision for redefining the supply chain, Supply Chain Commerce™ - and explain what this means for its Australian customer base. Supply Chain Commerce™ is a fundamental change in how two historically separate functions come together, to create unprecedented growth opportunities between buyers and brands and a tool for executing a successful omnichannel strategy. This new vision will be the primary focus of Manhattan’s innovation efforts and investments moving forward.
Raghav Sibal, Managing Director for ANZ at Manhattan Associates and Scott Gillies, Director for Retail, APAC at Manhattan Associates, will both be in attendance at the Smart Conference to talk to visitors about this new approach and discuss some of the latest trends and developments impacting the supply chain industry.
“Manhattan has invested more than US$300 million in research and development since 2006 to develop a platform-based, Supply Chain Commerce solution architected to anticipate, align and adapt to the new omnichannel landscape,” explained Sibal. “Manhattan is a recognised leader in supply chain experience and innovation and we will continue to lead our customers through the digital revolution with customer-centred solutions that connect front-end commerce and sales systems with back-end supply chain performance and efficiency, on a common technology platform.”
This year’s Smart Conference will include a keynote address from GraysOnline, a long-standing customer of Manhattan Associates. GraysOnline is one of Australia’s leading online retail and auction companies, offering a huge range of consumer, industrial and commercial goods, direct from manufacturers and distributors.
