ARC Advisory Group has ranked Manhattan Associates as the global leading supplier of ‘Total WMS Software and Services’ as part of their Warehouse Management Systems Global Market Research Study, Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2018.
In the report, ARC Advisory Group Enterprise Software Analyst Clint Reiser has named Manhattan Associates as the worldwide leading supplier of WMS solutions in 2013, as it has been for the last decade.
Manhattan’s Supply Chain Process Platform (SCPP) provides a foundation for optimising across applications such as WMS, yard management and TMS, with the cross-functional workflows benefitting manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers.
The report also mentions the move towards omni-channel commerce as a significant catalyst for growth in the WMS market. Reiser observes the omni-channel paradigm shift is increasing demand for WMS solutions within the retail sector and by brand manufacturers with direct channels, as these companies continue to respond to the changing fulfilment requirements. Manhattan is well-situated to capitalise on this multi-channel fulfilment transformation due to its well-established warehouse management solution set, distributed order management offering, and store inventory and fulfilment offering.
Manhattan Associates additionally led in 21 of the 36 categories tracked by ARC, including: WMS to Tier 1 Customers; WMS for Retail; WMS for Apparel Retailers; WMS for Grocery/Food and Beverage Retailers; WMS for Pharmaceutical and Biotech; and WMS for Transportation and Logistics.
According to David Landau, vice president, product management, Manhattan Associates, their Supply Chain Commerce solutions help many of the world’s largest companies get commerce ready and turn their supply chains into a powerful competitive edge. The successful execution of Manhattan’s platform strategy, worldwide team of industry experts, and customer focus are all indicators of the company’s enduring market leadership.
