QVC Selects Manhattan Associates To Improve Its Distribution Centers

February 22, 2010

QVC has selected solutions from the Manhattan SCOPE supply chain process platform to help optimize its supply chain network, the company said Monday

QVC — which over the past 23 years has shipped more than 1 billion packages in the United States alone — selected Manhattan Associates Warehouse Management and Labor Management solutions for its distribution center in Florence, S.C., with plans to roll out in its other domestic centers in Lancaster, Pa.; Rocky Mount, N.C.; and Suffolk, Va.

“Manhattan Associates will play a key role in our continuing IT transformation,” John Sullivan, QVC’s executive vice president and chief information officer, said in a canned statement. “Streamlining our distribution processes with the Manhattan platform will enable QVC to expand its distribution capacity and reach new fulfillment levels across every selling channel.”

Manhattan’s Warehouse Management and Labor Management solutions are part of the Distribution Management solution suite within the Manhattan SCOPE supply chain process platform, designed to leverage the spectrum of people, tasks and events across the supply chain for the most efficient and accurate performance possible. SCOPE’s modular service-oriented architecture facilitates the creation of cross-suite applications to address specific requirements for the goals of each Manhattan customer.

“QVC is one of the largest and most innovative multimedia retailers in the world and perhaps the best example of the potential of optimized multichannel retailing,” said Pete Sinisgalli, president and CEO of Manhattan Associates. “Manhattan SCOPE solutions are designed to help leading retailers like QVC reach new levels of service to its customers, vendors and partners.”
