IBM Awards Manhattan Associates' Distributed Order Management as "Best ISV Partner Innovation" for WebSphere Commerce

(November 17, 2009)

ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Manhattan Associates' (Nasdaq:MANH) Distributed Order Management (DOM) solution received the "Best ISV Partner Innovation" award during the IBM WebSphere Commerce Leadership Summit, held on Sept. 14-17 in Toronto, Canada. DOM, part of Manhattan's Order Lifecycle Management suite within the Manhattan SCOPE(R) portfolio, is an enterprise order management application capable of capturing an order from any channel in any location and fulfilling it from an extensible supply network.

The award recognizes DOM's integration with IBM(R) WebSphere(R) Commerce (released as part of WebSphere Commerce 6.0 Feature Pack 5 in April 2009), which provides retailers with a complete stack of cross-channel solutions: WebSphere Commerce for cross-channel marketing and selling, and DOM for order fulfillment from an extended supply network that includes distribution centers, stores and drop-ship vendors. Retailers can use out-of-the box functionality for managing multi-channel shopping processes; buy online / pickup in store flexibility; in-store save the sale capabilities; buy anywhere / ship from store options, and vendor-drop shipment processes.

A demonstration of the joint IBM WebSphere Commerce / Manhattan Associates DOM solution is now available in the IBM Retail Development Environment (RDE) in Dallas, Texas. In the RDE, customers can see a live demonstration of iPhone applications displaying store-level inventory with a web storefront to manage the buy online, pick up in-store flow, as well as an in-store application for managing the customer pick-up process.

"IBM WebSphere Commerce 7 is optimized for all mobile devices," said Bill Holtshouser, Program Director, Commerce Strategy and Product Management, IBM. "Using Manhattan Associates' DOM with WebSphere Commerce provides shoppers with the ability to use their handheld device to select and purchase products, then confirm inventory and pick up at their local store."
