CHESTERFIELD, Mo. April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading enterprise shipping software provider, Agile Network LLC, today announced the release of a new parcel shipping solution to coincide with Manhattan's release of WMOS 2016.
Agile Network and Manhattan Associates jointly developed the solution to add global shipping capabilities to the Manhattan WMOS warehouse management application, including standard rating, shipping, tracking, closing, voiding, cancellation and pickup transactions. For global WMOS users, the solution provides a resource to expand beyond the carrier selections and shipping functions that exist today.
The new solution includes an API-based connector between Manhattan WMOS and Agile Network's multi-carrier, enterprise shipping software and transportation management solution, TME. The integration is enabled via Manhattan's External Parcel Integration (EPI) framework. With Agile Network's TME, Manhattan WMOS users gain instant access to more than 4,500 parcel carrier services, including those provided by FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS, TNT and regional companies operating in 160 countries.
According to Scott Fenwick, senior director of product strategy at Manhattan Associates, "We've worked with Agile since 2014 when Manhattan initiated a selection process intended to broaden our parcel shipping capabilities for our Store Order Fulfillment solution. Agile presented a modern, robust shipping solution that met our objectives to expand our carrier base internationally. As we moved from selection to integration development, Agile has been heavily invested in ensuring our partnership is successful."
Agile Network's TME provides a centralized, menu-based rules engine and rating guides to optimize carrier selection, customer service and transportation spending across the enterprise. The solution may also be quickly configured to support existing work flows, including waves, manifesting, shipping confirmation and auditing, with true landed costs returned to Manhattan WMOS. To support high volume fulfillment operations, TME employs high performance server, application and transaction architecture with industry-leading processing speed.
"Now successfully integrated with Manhattan WMOS, Agile Network's TME platform offers our customers the option of a secure and scalable third party solution to manage parcel rating and execution. The Agile solution optimizes carrier selection and supports unique shipping requirements across multiple locations, including international operations," states Eric Lamphier, senior director of product management, Manhattan Associates.
Both products will be formally introduced at Manhattan Associates' annual user conference, Momentum, held May 15-18, 2016 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, FL. For additional information on the conference visit, http://www.manh-momentum.com/
