ATLANTA, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced that C&A, one of the world’s leading fashion retailers, has successfully implemented Manhattan Active® Warehouse management in its e-commerce and retail distribution centers in Brazil. The implementation was completed in less than eight months, with set-ups just in time for its peak Black Friday 2021 season. As a result, C&A has more than doubled its same-day and next-day deliveries compared to its previous peak Black Friday 2020 season.
C&A is a leading fashion brand in the world, with locations in 21 countries with over 1,400 stores and over 25,000 employees. The global retailer prides itself on offering durable and affordable clothing, with a wide variety of collections that offer the latest styles and fashion trends. C&A opened its operations in Brazil in 1976 and today serves millions of customers in the country through more than 300 outlets. After experiencing 300% growth in online orders in 2020, C&A selected Manhattan’s best solution to meet increased demand and streamline distribution.
Manhattan Active Warehouse Management is the world’s first cloud-native, enterprise-class warehouse management system that can unify all aspects of distribution, and never needs to be upgraded. Built entirely from microservices, this solution ushers in a new level of supply chain speed, adaptability, and ease of use.
“Our previous system did not integrate with new automation technologies and our e-commerce fulfillment center depended on this solution to achieve our service improvement goals. With Manhattan Active WM, we were able to ensure the scalability, integration, productivity and support needed to meet our strategic plan and the growing volume of digital sales,” says Marcel Modesto, Logistics Manager at C&A.
“We are thrilled to hear of C&A’s record results and are proud to have helped this retailer sustain a 300% peak season volume increase just four weeks after going live,” said Stewart Gantt, executive vice president, professional services, at Manhattan Associates. “C&A worked in unison with our services and R&D teams in Manhattan and each played a vital role in the success of this project. We are all very pleased with the results and look forward to C&A’s continued success.
