“In early 2006, our executive team determined that we needed to make substantial changes in our distribution operation and the supporting fulfillment systems to meet our growing company’s needs, especially during the critical holiday season. We decided to upgrade our very customized Manhattan WMS system to the latest release of the WM product, and to make substantial improvements to the overall operation based upon new system functionality.  We selected Blue Horseshoe to run this very complex upgrade project for two reasons – their experience and their strong relationship with Manhattan Associates. We needed both companies to pull off an upgrade of this magnitude and complexity in such a short time period, and Manhattan and Blue Horseshoe worked together to deliver a very successful project. Our 2006 holiday season was a tremendous success, and we are well-positioned for future growth and evolving requirements.”
