Manhattan Associates, Inc. (MANH) Chosen By South Africa’s Foschini Group to Provide Order Fulfillment Platform

Manhattan Associates (MANH) concentrates exclusively on helping companies streamline their supply chains to achieve lower costs, higher profits and happier customers. In addition to the company’s many Ph.D.s and other experts, the Manhattan Science Advisory Board brings together leaders and international researchers from academic institutions such as MIT, Columbia University and Georgia Tech to discuss advances in the underlying science, address new economic developments, and identify areas of research. The company, which has been in operation since 1991, is headquartered in Atlanta, Ga.

The company’s Warehouse Management Solutions (WMS) for open systems has been selected by the Foschini Group to serve the group’s multiple retail divisions. The Group operates through the following trading divisions: Foschini, Donna Claire, Fashion Express and Luella Markham; the sports division; the jewelry division; and @home. Foschini, with more than 1,350 stores, is one of South Africa’s foremost specialty retailers.

The two companies will work together on the project to provide Foschini with an order fulfillment platform to support the group’s store network extending across South Africa’s nine provinces and into neighboring countries, including Namibia, Botswana and Swaziland. Manhattan’s WMS, which required Foschini’s support and development, sought a way that would free up internal IT resources and that could also support business processes.

The company states it has the necessary functionality to effectively handle the requirements necessary and meet virtually all other process support requirements of Foschini’s diverse portfolio of retail businesses.
