French electrical giant looks to optimize its “Anywhere, Anytime” fulfillment promise

ATLANTA and PARIS, June 21, 2022

Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced that Sonepar Group, the world leader in electrical products, systems and services distribution, is expanding its current Manhattan Active® Warehouse Management remit to support its ongoing global omnichannel supply chain transformation.

In response to significant ecommerce growth and customer demand for a seamless digital and physical experience, Sonepar Group is investing in Manhattan’s industry-leading solutions to deliver the highest standard of service in a fast, reliable and more sustainable way.

The French company has an ambitious supply chain and digital transformation agenda: its goal, to become the first global B2B electrical distributor to provide a fully digitized omnichannel experience to all its customers. Sonepar leverages its multichannel distribution and logistics network to optimize its supply chain, offer competitive prices and improve its customer relationships. Its products are available anywhere, anytime at the company’s branches, showrooms, online and on mobile devices.

With this rollout, Sonepar is building on its previous successes with Manhattan’s Warehouse Management solutions at its subsidiaries Technische Unie and Van Egmond Group in the Netherlands and Mayflex in the UK. Manhattan Active Warehouse Management will initially be rolled out at Sonepar’s Cebeo division in Belgium with other locations to follow.

“Manhattan’s cloud native supply chain solutions are innovative and run on a unique platform enabling us to drive the rapid rollout of state-of-the-art distribution facilities globally; underpinning the buying journey and offering our customers a seamless omnichannel experience,” stated Jo Verbeek, chief supply chain officer at Sonepar.

“We believe expanding the global partnership with Manhattan will help Sonepar Group become the first global B2B electrical distributor capable of delivering a truly complete omnichannel experience to each and every one of our customers, in a more sustainable, cost-effective way. We look forward to working together with Manhattan’s team of experts in the coming years to realize this long-term, strategic goal,” finished Verbeek.
