Groupe Dynamite, owner of the Dynamite and Garage fashion brands, will begin deploying Manhattan Active Point of Sale from Manhattan Associates in 10 pilot stores this summer, with plans to expand the solution to its remaining 300+ retail locations in the U.S.

Groupe Dynamite creates, designs, markets and distributes accessible fashion collection, and uses Manhattan’s Omni and Warehouse Management solutions to manage the flow of products through these stores and its Canadian distribution center. But the company said its progress towards true omnichannel commerce had been hampered by an aging point-of-sale system.

“We wanted to add the latest fulfillment methods, like buy online, pickup in store and ship-from-store capabilities, but were limited by a legacy POS with an inflexible architecture,” said Marie-Soleil Tremblay, senior vice president sales and operations, Groupe Dynamite Inc., in a statement. “Manhattan’s POS solution will give our retail associates the state-of-the-art tools they need to provide a modern and personalized shopping experience.”

Groupe Dynamite already leverages Manhattan Active Omni’s Order Management, Store Fulfillment and Store Inventory Management functionalities, according to Tremblay. With Manhattan Active, the retailer will leverage the platform’s “omni-cart” and clienteling capabilities.
