Manhattan Supply Chain Software Competitors

Primary Competitor With core competencies in both warehouse management software and transportation management systems, Manhattan Associates most direct software competitor is RedPrairie. Both supply chain software vendors support large and complex 24 by 7 operations, cater to B2B fulfillment centers and distributors driven by allocations for both inbound shipments and large reserve stock inventories, as well as large retail chains and direct to consumer fulfillment centers, among other overlapping segments. And both supply chain software vendors are regarded as best of breed providers.
Warehouse Management Competitors The HighJump Warehouse Management System (WMS) is another strong competitor in the warehouse management system market. The company has over 1,500 global customers and its supply chain software supports high volume and sophisticated distribution environments as well as core processes such as such as receiving, inventory management, put-away/flowthrough, sale order processing, replenishment/pick/pack, loading and shipping.

The company possesses large customer concentrations within the retail, manufacturing, service and pharmaceutical industries.
