Cumberland-based supply chain commerce solutions provider Manhattan Associates Inc. announced Aug. 12 it acquired the assets of GlobalBay Technologies from VeriFone. The acquisition extends Manhattan’s market leading omni-channel Inventory and Order Management solutions by enabling in store sales and clienteling capabilities.
The combination of Manhattan’s Enterprise Inventory Visibility, Order Management and Store solutions with GlobalBay’s point-of-sale and clienteling applications will deliver the industry’s only true omni-channel sales and fulfillment platform.
“Our decision to acquire GlobalBay was driven primarily by our customers asking us to extend our omni-channel scope within their stores. Moving beyond inventory and fulfillment and into sales and clienteling is one way we’ll provide a comprehensive store platform with omni-channel at its core,” said Eddie Capel, Manhattan Associates’ CEO. “For our customers, this means that they will now have the ability to unlock the information that presents a single view of customers, orders and inventory. This unique combination allows our customers to
provide a complete sales and clienteling solution, including best-in-class Inventory and Order Management capabilities to their stores and deliver the retail experience that the new, omni-channel shoppers expect.”
VeriFone’s GlobalBay Merchant solution, targeted to small retailers, will be retained by VeriFone and rebranded in the coming months.
The acquisition was completed on Monday. Financial terms of the transaction will not be disclosed.
