SINGAPORE and ATLANTA, Nov. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supply Chain Commerce Solutions provider, Manhattan Associates (Nasdaq:MANH) has won the 'Distribution Center Innovation' award at the Supply Chain Asia Awards 2013. The industry association recognized Manhattan for its market-leading Supply Chain Commerce solutions and how they have helped many of Asia's leading retailers, distributors and manufacturers optimize the performance of their supply chains and get closer to their customers.

Over the last year, regional leaders such as Matahari, Semir and Shanghai Pharmaceuticals have used Manhattan's Supply Chain Commerce solutions to improve product availability, customer satisfaction, revenue growth and profitability. Luolai, a home textile product retailer with more than 3,000 stores throughout China, adopted Manhattan's technology to optimize supply chain performance and strengthen ties between its distribution operations, expanding store network and fast-growing customer base. Since implementing the solutions, Luolai has improved inventory accuracy, reduced fulfillment cycle times and raised store and customer service levels.

The recipients of the awards represent the best-in-class in Asia. Over the last year, Manhattan Associates has demonstrated outstanding achievement and superior performance across the region and is a worthy recipient of this year's Distribution Center Innovation award."

Our solutions help companies respond to these new demands, allowing them to deliver a great customer experience at the same time as fulfilling orders profitably. This award is a great testimony to our technological innovation and validates our growing reputation in Asia, where we have a strong and experienced regional team supporting our rapidly expanding customer base."
