Steve Smith, senior vice president, EMEA, at Manhattan Associates, commented, “As well as continuing to look for efficiency improvements across the supply chain, companies are also looking to improve business margins by increasing revenue. They are selling across a greater number of sales channels at the same time as extending their product ranges and expanding their sales efforts into new geographies. The key to meeting both their cost control and revenue growth goals is having a supply chain technology platform in place that can facilitate all of this simultaneously. Delegates attending our Exchange event series will hear firsthand from many Manhattan customers that are already activating ‘Platform Thinking’ and the value that these strategic investments are bringing.”
