ATLANTA, March 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) is the oldest commercial corporation in North America and one of the oldest in the world. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, HBC is Canada's largest diversified general merchandise retailer with over 600 retail locations and nearly 60,000 associates located in every province in Canada. HBC selected Warehouse Management from Manhattan Associates (Nasdaq:MANH) to help raise productivity within its distribution centers and also selected solutions from Manhattan's Transportation Lifecycle Management suite to streamline transportation processes for HBC across Canada as well as New York-based upscale retailer Lord & Taylor across the United States.

"As HBC integrated with Lord & Taylor, we found that our in-house ERP systems had very limited capabilities and that Manhattan's solutions were the best fit for our future growth," said Dan Smith, chief information officer, The Hudson's Bay Company.

Manhattan's Warehouse Management solution, which is included in the Distribution Management solution suite of the Manhattan SCOPE® supply chain portfolio, is designed for optimal collaboration and communication with an extensive network of suppliers and partners. Manhattan's Transportation Lifecycle Management solutions connect transportation networks from procurement to delivery—providing all the tools a company needs to reduce costs, reroute around trouble spots, coordinate deliveries precisely and deliver more, faster, for less.
