Manhattan’s solutions will help Gander create a seamless experience for their customers across channels with a single view of inventory, and to allow Gander shoppers to control how and when they take delivery of Gander merchandise.
“We were looking for a software company to partner with to help us through our omni-channel transformation,” said Derek Siddons, vice president of Omnichannel Strategy at Gander Mountain. “Manhattan’s proven track record with large and successful omnichannel retailers was a key for us in the decision making progress.
