Eram Group Selects Manhattan Associates to Drive Omnichannel Enterprise Transformation
PARIS and ATLANTA , July 02, 2013
Global supply chain commerce solutions provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH), today announced that leading European fashion retailer Eram Group has selected Manhattan Associates’ Enterprise Order Management, Store Inventory & Fulfilment and Warehouse Management solutions to enable the company's omnichannel business transformation. Manhattan’s solutions will help Eram provide its customers with a seamless shopping experience across channels, a responsive infrastructure for access to the products they want, and give them control over when and how they receive ordered goods.
By connecting two historically separate functions - backend supply chain process and efficiency with frontend commerce and selling systems - and through being able to present a single view of available inventory from across the enterprise, Manhattan’s solutions will enable Eram Group to fulfil omnichannel orders efficiently and profitably from anywhere in their network.
"When we decided to embark on our business transformation project, we intuitively thought Manhattan Associates’ solutions would be a good fit to help us get much closer to our customers,” explains François Drouin, head of Information and Organization Systems at Eram Group. “They already had a great track record doing this for large and successful omnichannel retailers – both locally in France and in many other markets around the world. They already had customers using their solutions to connect backend supply chain processes with frontend commerce and sales systems. What really became clear, in talking with the Manhattan team and with existing Manhattan customers, was that, beyond their solutions, they possessed the level of expertise, experience and support capability we needed to help turn our omnichannel vision into a reality.”
Henri Seroux, managing director at Manhattan Associates France, commented, "We’re very much looking forward to working alongside Eram Group on their transformation project. We’re confident that Eram Group can in turn look forward to a future where, with the support of our solutions, they can rely on a supply chain that will anticipate their customers’ needs, deliver on their customers’ choices, and allow their customers to control how and when they take delivery of ordered goods."
