Manhattan Associates unveils mobile, transportation solutions for retailers

Manhattan Associates is releasing new mobile and transportation management solutions. The supply chain technology vendor announced the new applications at its Momentum 2014 conference in Hollywood, Florida, May 5-8.

Among the new mobile technologies showcased is a tablet-based application released as part of Manhattan’s 2014 Labor Management (LM) software. The new application delivers a mobile experience to new and existing functionality within LM, including Dynamic Employee Management, an interactive employee scorecard displaying current and historical metrics; Employee Interactions, which performs on-the-spot employee observations and document interactions and coaching directly on the supervisor’s mobile device; and Standards Validation, which captures, validate and analyze labor activity standards in real-time through any mobile device.

Manhattan Associates also showcased the mobile capabilities of its Store Inventory & Fulfillment product suite, which is now available on iOS devices, and a new mobile proof of delivery application, which is integrated within its Warehouse Management System (WMS) and Transportation Management System (TMS). This automates a manual, paper-based process and helps to improve customer service and delivery accuracy.

All three mobile applications were developed using Manhattan’s TouchTop Mobile Framework and application development infrastructure.

Furthermore, Manhattan Associates introduced the 2014 release of TMS. New capabilities include the addition of probabilistic modeling, where shippers can perform a variety of “what-if” scenarios, such as determining optimal freight term assignment, as well as improved parcel management and shared transportation forecasts with carriers.
