As we advance our omni-channel expertise, our store staff and call centre agents will gain the powerful capability to view and service customer orders across all selling channels. They will be able to quickly search using any piece of customer or order information, service customers across all touch points and fulfil orders with inventory from any channel—delivering an outstanding customer experience and earning brand loyalty. Manhattan’s solutions will become the driving force behind our omni-channel operation and will promote conversions across every point of commerce and enhance customer lifetime value.”
