SYDNEY, Australia and ATLANTA, Aug. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global supply chain optimization provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq:MANH) has announced that Fantastic Holdings Ltd (FHL), one of Australia's leading furniture manufacturers and retailers, has successfully implemented the Manhattan SCALE™ (Supply Chain Architected for Logistics Execution) product suite at its main 360,000 square foot purpose built distribution center (DC) at Fairfield, NSW, its 330,000 square foot facility in Clayton, Victoria, as well as its newer 60,000 square foot DC in Perth. "FHL has continued to undergo consistent growth across its entire retail portfolio, despite the current soft state of the retail market," commented Craig Holland, COO Supply Chain at Fantastic Holdings Limited. "FHL prides itself on delivering the highest level of customer service, and a core feature of this includes ensuring maximum product availability at all times. As Australia's largest vertically integrated furniture retailer, with over 125 stores across five brands, we recognized that investing in an end-to-end supply chain solution would be critical to our ongoing success." Following a competitive selection process, FHL opted for Manhattan SCALE because of its flexibility and unrivalled range of warehouse management and optimization capabilities. Manhattan SCALE also enabled FHL to integrate seamlessly with the company's other IT systems including its enterprise resource planning (ERP) and in-store Point of Sale (POS) systems. In addition, the solution offered the degree of scalability required to support a number of proposed new business processes that FHL planned to introduce across its multiple distribution centers. "Having already delivered innumerable benefits across every facet of the company's distribution operations, we are extremely satisfied with the Manhattan SCALE solution," continued Holland. "Not only has it helped improve workflows, order accuracy and on-time delivery, the solution has also provided better inventory control and an increased level of visibility throughout the entire supply chain. These benefits have enabled FHL to continue delivering enhanced levels of customer satisfaction and helped us drive strong revenue growth."
