Manhattan Associates: Under Armour Achieves Record Product Shipments Through WMS

 
Manhattan Associates reported today in a press release that Under Armour has achieved record product shipments through the implementation of the vendor's WMS.

Under Armour selected Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solution (WMS) to manage processes in its footwear and apparel DCs, and leveraged Manhattan's Slotting Optimization to help make smarter decisions about where products should be placed in the warehouse, based on demand. Under Armour has also implemented Manhattan's Extended Enterprise Management (EEM) to provide automatic inventory updates that the company can communicate to its vendor network.

"We were simply bursting at the seams and had to upgrade our information systems," said Eric Olsson, director of distribution systems, Under Armour. "Not only were we challenged to keep pace with our current distribution levels, we had to scale for the future growth we expect."

Manhattan Associates reports its WMS has helped Under Armour save costs by reducing the need for overtime while improving the overall accuracy of its warehouse efforts.

According to the release, the company has used EEM to direct ship to more than 15 million units thus far, and estimates that number will climb several million more by year's end.

"We achieved record levels of product shipments from our warehouses during the first September we were fully up and running, and EEM has enabled us to deliver on our available-to-promise with customers," said Olsson. "It's the difference between making an accurate commitment or not. With automatic updates, we can know exactly what we have available and when it will ship. Our customers rely on that."

Online sales and marketing vehicles are one of the most important channels fashion has for engaging with customers, but optimizing the value of your electronic interactions can be a complex undertaking.

If you cannot create an online platform that delivers across all fronts, you’re missing critical opportunities to engage with customers, increase sales, and extend your market reach across global time zones. Read this White Paper – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director, where he will share insights into the eCommerce market and just how Fashion companies can deliver on a 24/7 sales economy.
