Online retail specialist boosts warehouse management

13 July 2016

Manhattan Associates will supply Southeast Asia’s leading eCommerce service provider and online distributor aCommerce with its SCALE product suite.

It is planned that SCALE will deliver an improved warehouse management capability across aCommerce’s warehousing estate in Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand, enabling an easier and faster integration of new aCommerce customers. The system will also provide the required degree of scalability for the business’s projected growth in the years ahead.

The initial implementation at aCommerce’s DC in Thailand will be conducted by Manhattan, aCommerce and GeoPartner Logiciel Consulting, but aCommerce expects its own team will manage subsequent deployments.

Paul Srivorakul, Group CEO at aCommerce, says: “Over recent years, local e-tailers and international retail brands expanding into Southeast Asia have focused on building their websites and supporting front end systems but today their eCommerce strategies are increasingly structured around order execution and fulfilment processes. With the Manhattan SCALE solution, we're aiming to drive improvements in revenue and profitability for our clients through higher service levels to the end consumer as well as give them a more efficient outsourced logistics capability.”

Richard Wright, managing director at Manhattan Associates, Southeast Asia, adds: “Our unique platform will allow aCommerce to deliver on its customer service, distribution efficiency and enterprise growth goals, as well as create exceptional value for its retail customers and the consumers that they serve. We are honoured to be selected by aCommerce and excited to play such a key role in furthering its success as the leading integrated ecommerce services platform in Southeast Asia.”
