ATLANTA: Manhattan Associates Inc., (Nasdaq:MANH) and SeeBeyond (Nasdaq:SBYN), a provider of eBusiness and Application Integration (eAI) solutions, Wednesday announced a strategic alliance, whereby Manhattan Associates has selected SeeBeyond as a real-time integration solution partner.

As part of the agreement, SeeBeyond will jointly develop and market the SeeBeyond e*Way(TM) Intelligent Adapter for the Manhattan Associates' PkMS product line.

Utilizing the real-time integration of warehousing systems with order management, replenishment, distribution, and transportation capabilities provides organizations with the ability to achieve excellence in the execution of supply chain activities. As a result of this alliance between Manhattan Associates and SeeBeyond, this real-time integration can now be more rapidly achieved across an organization's extended supply chain, lowering the overall cost of integration, while helping to achieve operational efficiencies. Using the SeeBeyond e*Gate(TM) Integrator platform and connector to PKMS, customers will be able to easily integrate their PKMS implementation with other third party ERP and legacy applications.

"This partnership is a tremendous opportunity to bring our new and existing customers a complete, cost-efficient, and out-of-the-box integration to PkMS that will allow them shorter order-to-delivery cycle times, completion of more orders, improved warehouse productivity, and reduced transportation expenses - making operational excellence a reality," said Eric Peters, senior vice president of Product Strategy, Marketing and Alliances for Manhattan Associates.

As a part of this agreement, SeeBeyond will work with Manhattan Associates to develop a new SeeBeyond e*Way Intelligent Adapter solution that will provide real-time connectivity between PkMS® and third party enterprise applications. Leveraging this solution, customers will be able to quickly and easily integrate with other enterprise applications at any time during or after a PkMS® deployment. Examples of enterprise applications that might need to be integrated using this solution include ERP, advanced planning and scheduling, transportation management and order management.

"We are excited to be working with the leading provider of software for supply chain execution, as this alliance with Manhattan Associates will provide our joint retail and manufacturing customers with real-time integration capabilities for supply chain optimization," said Reed Henry, senior vice president for Services, Support and Alliances for SeeBeyond. "The synergy between the SeeBeyond adapter solution and PkMS will provide significant long-term benefits, allowing organizations to improve profitability while increasing customer satisfaction."
