Lennox International’s Success Heats up Following WMS/TMS Rollout With Manhattan Associates
ATLANTA, May 11, 2015
Have you ever wondered what goes into a supply chain redesign sparked by unprecedented store growth? Lennox International will discuss its successful journey to deploy Manhattan Associates, Inc.'s, (NASDAQ: MANH) Warehouse Management (WMS) and Transportation Management (TMS) solutions simultaneously and its return on investment (ROI) during a Power Session at Momentum 2015, scheduled for May 17-20 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge, in Phoenix, Ariz.
Momentum attendees will hear first-hand how Lennox Residential took its distribution from a centralized distribution model to a hub-and-spoke network, rolling out WMS and TMS while raising service levels, reducing working capital and generating an impressive ROI.
New supply chain capabilities enable Lennox to better serve its customers and support its explosive store growth from 68 to 270 locations. With broader visibility and regional control, Lennox has increased its productivity by more than 50 percent and reports that its shipping and inventory has reached a 99 percent accuracy rate.
Before Manhattan’s implementation, the manufacturer and distributor had minimal warehouse-level visibility. “Forward visibility to demand allows us to consolidate order picking and reduce freight costs,” said Keith Nash, vice president, supply chain logistics, Lennox Residential.
Manhattan Associates’s WMS and TMS solutions are designed to mathematically organize and optimize warehouse and distribution operations and transform logistics into a critical, strategic component of supply chains.
Customers from around the world attend Manhattan’s annual conference, Momentum, which provides supply chain management and logistics professionals with the training, information on industry trends and exclusive networking opportunities they need to stay at the leading edge of best practices. The conference features more than 100 learning sessions, world-renowned speakers and an interactive discovery center.
