ATLANTA, July 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supply Chain Commerce
Solutions provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (Nasdaq:MANH) announced
today that it has been ranked as the global leading supplier of "Total
WMS Software and Services" in ARC Advisory Group's "Warehouse
Management Systems Global Market Research Study, Market Analysis and
Forecast Through 2018."

In the report ARC Advisory Group Enterprise Software Analyst Clint
Reiser stated, "Manhattan Associates was 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 optimizing across applications such as WMS, yard management, and
TMS. These cross-functional work flows are of value to manufacturers,
wholesalers, and retailers."

The report also calls out the movement towards omni-channel commerce as
a significant catalyst for growth in the WMS market. Reiser states,
"This omni-channel paradigm shift is increasing demand for WMS
solutions by the retail sector and brand manufacturers with direct
channels, as these companies continue to respond to the changing
fulfillment requirements. Manhattan is well-situated to capitalize on
this multi-channel fulfillment transformation due to its
well-established warehouse management solution set, distributed order
management offering, and store inventory and fulfillment offering."
