Logistics Solutions Provider Reduces Costs and Increases Customer Satisfaction with Warehouse Management Solution

ATLANTA and HACKENSACK - December 6, 2005 - Leading supply chain solutions provider, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH), deployed its Warehouse Management solution for Windows for BDI-Laguna, a total solution provider supplying consumer electronics and computer products to the nation's most successful retailers. With the .NET-based solution, BDI-Laguna can reach its operational goals while increasing customer satisfaction and providing complete inventory visibility across its North American operations.

"Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solution will be the backbone of our continued growth as a distributor and third-party logistics provider," said Darren Marino, executive vice president for BDI-Laguna. "We selected Manhattan Associates because of its reputation and its people and because its solution integrated with our existing enterprise resource planning system. The partnership has helped us streamline our fulfillment operations so that we can get goods into the hands of our customers."

The solution has been successfully implemented at BDI-Laguna's warehouse and headquarters operations in Atlanta, Georgia, Reno, Nevada and Hackensack, New Jersey. "At the onset of the project, Manhattan Associates provided us with a pre-established implementation plan and schedule, enabling all parties to stay focused on the ultimate goal and achieve our objectives in a timely and cost-effective manner," said Rosalie Weeks, vice president and director of information technology at BDI-Laguna.

Prior to implementing Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management solution, BDI-Laguna's enterprise systems had come together organically, as needed over time. The result was various systems interacting in the background for its customers. "We had reached a point where we had to reshape our systems while maintaining our operations, and Manhattan Associates fit the bill," said Marino. Existing systems are now seamlessly and efficiently united-improving inventory control, reducing costs, enhancing inbound shipping and allowing performance and productivity to increase.
