Leveraging supply chain, inventory and an omnichannel approach ensure monitoring inventory across all storage areas, ranging from in-store to distribution centers, to dealing with shrinking marginal costs and risk management. To assist enterprises with complex business challenges, Manhattan Associates, based in Atlanta, GA, started building technology solutions that deal with business problems in supply chain, inventory, and omnichannel strategy. Ever since its inception in 1990, the company has focused on generating desired outcomes and specializes in supply chain management, supply chain optimization, warehouse management, transportation management, professional services, consulting services, order management, point of sale, replenishment, store fulfillment, store inventory, clienteling, and tablet retailing. Adam Kline, senior director, product management at Manhattan Associates says, “We help you discover unified customer management across your contact center, physical and digital stores.”
