Brightstar, the world’s leading mobile services company for managing devices and accessories across the wireless ecosystem, has invested in Manhattan Associates, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: MANH) Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) to facilitate a service transition to an omnichannel fulfilment model and to boost supply chain performance for its Australian customers.
