Mothercare Implements Manhattan's Inventory Management Software
Mothercare is one of the UK's leading retailers of products for parents, mothers-to-be, babies and young children. With 241 stores in the UK and more than 300 stores (franchisees) in 35 countries, Mothercare sought to replace its logistics network to satisfy the company's business strategy of growth, specialisation and reach; as well as to manage its success in the international market. Mothercare implemented Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solution and deployed the Performance Services team to improve productivity and performance and reduce costs. After implementing the team's recommendations, Mothercare has seen notable improvements in productivity and the reduction of operational costs.
Mothercare needed a new logistics network and warehouse management solution following its de-merger in 2000.
Manhattan’s solutions offered seamless DC inventory management and subsequently facilitated easy migration to a national distribution centre.
Mothercare is able to keep up with international growth, and has enhanced productivity and reduced costs.
