"Our pan-European supply chain operations are complex and fast-growing," said Andy Richards, Director of IT Europe at ACCO Brands. "The integrated warehouse management environment gives us real-time supply chain visibility on a European level and completely supports the pan-European rollout of our new ERP system also."

ACCO Brands runs its European operations from the two central warehouses in Born and Halesowen as well as a number of forward warehouses across Europe. ACCO Brands first implemented Manhattan's Warehouse Management Solution, which leverages IBMi server technology, in its warehouse in Born in 2006 to optimise its European supply chain. It also implemented Manhattan's Supply Chain Intelligence solution to gain strategic and actionable insights to drive logistics performance improvements.

"Our Distribution Management solutions are highly scalable and we are therefore able to fully support ACCO Brands' future business needs and help them grow their business on a pan European level," said Steve Smith, senior vice president EMEA at Manhattan Associates.
