What Is Manhattan Active™ Omni?

Omnichannel fulfillment, relying on the full suite of your supply chain solutions, combines all channels into a single approach and optimizes management through connected technologies to reduce out of stocks, expedite shipping times, and give customers a seamless experience. Customers expect the option to buy online, at physical stores, the ability to change their purchases on-the-go, and seek out the best deals. However, executing an omnichannel supply chain strategy can be challenging, and many retailers continue to operate in a multi-channel mindset vs. an omnichannel mindset. At NRF 2020, omnichannel was referred to as “No Channel.”  The customer doesn’t know the channel; it is a purely a retailer construct. As reported in Retail Dive, “roughly half (48%) of retailers have implemented a single commerce platform, according to Boston Retail Partners’ (BRP’s) 2019 POS/Customer Engagement Survey, and an additional 46% plan to have one in place within three years.” Fortunately, Manhattan Active™ Omni is the solution that will enable supply chain leaders to implement omnichannel capability in their supply chains, and therefore, we want to make leaders aware and answer the question, “What is Manhattan Active™ Omni?”.

Manhattan Active™ Omni is a single platform that touches all omnichannel operations regardless of their origin and destination. Retailers leveraging Manhattan Active™ Omni can tailor their inventory requirements while viewing customers and their transactions across all channels.
