LONDON and ATLANTA, May 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Associates (Nasdaq:MANH), today announced that Fowler Welch, a leading supply chain services specialist for ambient and temperature controlled products, has completed a successful implementation of the latest version of Manhattan's Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) to streamline inventory, process orders faster, and increase picking accuracy in the UK and mainland Europe.

"One of the key reasons we originally installed Manhattan's WMS was to attain high levels of inventory accuracy," said Matthew Downes, IT director at Fowler Welch. "The system gave us that capability from the outset so that we not only knew exactly what goods had been received, what had been picked and what was left, we were able to let customers know exactly when they were going to receive their goods."

With regard to the recent upgrade, Downes continued, "In combination with our other systems, Manhattan Associates' WMS now provides a huge amount of intelligence in terms of what our business looks like at any moment in time. The key for us is using that intelligence to improve the operation, allowing warehouse operators to do things in a more logical and efficient sequence and keep customers better informed, all while continuing to fulfil orders accurately every time."

Manhattan's partnership with Fowler Welch has given them the ability to serve customers across multiple industry sectors. "The implementation's success is a testament to the broad array of capabilities of our WMS solution," said Craig Sears-Black, UK managing director at Manhattan Associates. "It supports every requirement for the increasing demands of modern supply chains and provides the agility required in our fast-changing world."
