Vera Bradley Designs Growth Strategies with Manhattan SCALE
Challenged with manual ordering processes, high labor costs and unacceptable error rates, Vera Bradley’s goal was to overhaul supply chain operations to keep up with its double-digit growth.

As a result of “The Big Four,” Vera Bradley’s growth challenges were met, labor productivity jumped 25%, picking accuracy increased and order volume rose from 1,500 to 6,000 daily.
