Manhattan Associates, Inc. was selected as a 2015 Supplier of the Year by General Motors (GM). The annual award recognises GM's global suppliers who have delivered superior service and made significant contributions to the company.
GM utilises Manhattan's Warehouse Management for Open Systems (WMOS) to speed the flow of parts to the manufacturing process. Since its implementation of WMOS, GM has improved the reliability of parts deliveries to the manufacturing line, accelerated the pace of replenishment and enhanced overall inventory accuracy – all essential elements in its overall strategy for vehicle quality management.
"The GM Supplier of the Year Award honours best-of-breed companies whose superior work helps GM achieve excellence and accomplish our mutual effort to provide GM customers with the best vehicles and service in the industry," said GM Vice President, Global Purchasing Supply Chain Steven Kiefer. "The GM name promises quality, and we recognise the first-class vendors who enable us to deliver on that promise."
"Manhattan Associates is proud to help leading companies like GM improve operating efficiency and drive business productivity," said Manhattan Associates Senior Vice President of Americas Sales Bob Howell. "The Manhattan team worked closely with GM in Brazil to build a strong, collaborative partnership based on a shared vision and world-class solutions. We believe this award reflects those efforts, and we are honoured to be recognised among such a prestigious group of global companies."
The 2015 Supplier of the Year Awards were presented at a reception at the Cobo Center in Detroit with GM CEO Mary Barra on March 10, 2016.
