Manhattan Associates has reached into the demand planning and forecasting and replenishment markets with its recent acquisition of Evant Inc., a provider specializing in those fields. Privately held and based in San Francisco and Atlanta, Evant provides solutions to more than 60 companies in the retail, manufacturing and wholesale distribution industries, including many that are existing Manhattan Associates clients.
Manhattan, clearly a leader in supply chain execution, says that the combination of planning, optimization and execution solutions would make it "the only company in the world that provides the complete footprint for supply chain management."
Manhattan's existing suite of integrated logistics solutions include distributed order management, warehouse management, transportation management, trading partner management, reverse logistics management and what it calls "RFID in a Box."
"We believe the extension into supply chain planning and replenishment is a natural evolution for Manhattan Associates," says Pete Sinisgalli, president and CEO of Manhattan Associates. "We know from experience with our joint customers, that companies with the best supply chains in the world are looking for a single business partner to provide solutions and expertise for integrating their supply and demand networks. The combination of our solutions represents an important step in our plan to continue to deliver superior value to our customers and shareholders."
