Women's fashion retailer Chico's FAS has chosen Manhattan Associates' supply chain execution solution, PkMS and business intelligence tool SmartInfo, for its new 240,000 square foot distribution center in Georgia.

The software will replace Chico's legacy warehouse management system and allow the company to manage and control distribution processes more efficiently at the state-of-the-art delivery complex.

Early next year Chico's also plans to deploy SmartInfo which will enable it to utilise real-time monitoring of distribution centre activities for streamlined management of warehouse operations throughout the day.

Chico's vice president and CIO, Ajit Patel, commented:  "PkMS offers us a solution with extensive capabilities and features we currently do not have. We expect to be able to leverage Manhattan Associates' expertise in the retail apparel industry and PkMS' functionality to provide an attractive return on our investment."
