Pearl’s new global IT system rolls on

Manhattan Associates, global provider of supply chain execution and optimisation solutions, has announced that Pearl Music Europe has implemented the Warehouse Management component of Manhattan Associates’ Integrated Logistics Solutions at its distribution centre in Venlo, the Netherlands. The European implementation follows a previous successful installation of the same solution at the Pearl Corporation distribution centre at Nashville, Tennessee in the US. The scheme is also set to coincide with Pearl Musical Instrument Co. and Pearl Musical Distribution Co. in Japan. Jim Rapp, operations manager at Venlo, Pearl music Europe comments: “We were impressed with the way the Warehouse Management solution has brought about operational efficiencies in our Nashville DC, and so the decision to implement the same system in our European distribution centre was a fairly straightforward one.”

Manhattan has opened five RFID demonstration labs across its key European markets to showcase its RFID in a Box solution. Bracknell is the location for the UK demonstration lab.
