A partnership of web services firm, WebMethods Inc., and supply chain execution systems provider, Manhattan Associates, has been formed to provide retailers and consumer goods manufacturing firms with an RFID (radio frequency identification) solution integrated with supply chain execution (SCE) solutions.
The integrated RFID solution offered by WebMethods and Manhattan Associates provides connectivity to Manhattan''s warehouse management applications and other back-office applications, offering cost and operational advantages. For example, WebMethods'' integration capabilities enable clients of the two firms to integrate data from RFID readers with their ERP applications, partners, and warehouse management systems for end-to-end business process management. 22.214.171.124 This article is copyright 2004 UsingRFID.com.
"In addition to the benefits of RFID technology, which revolutionises the way products are sold, purchased, and tracked, an integrated RFID solution extends those benefits by connecting to back-end applications and trading partners," explained Kareen Renaudin, vice president of Industry Solutions for WebMethods.
This extended partnership builds upon the existing relationship between Manhattan Associates and WebMethods. As a participant in Manhattan Associates'' independent software vendor (ISV) programme, the two companies have been working together to develop the integration between their solutions.
