Global supply chain optimisation provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. on 6 March announced that it is positioned as a leader in the 2012 Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems. Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, evaluated 19 warehouse management system (WMS) solution offerings in its Magic Quadrant research. The report positions vendors based on completeness of vision in the WMS market and the solution provider’s ability to execute on that vision.
"Technical architecture is now a critical evaluation criterion for buyers, second only to functionality. User needs for business agility, and thus application adaptability, require architectures that enable zero – or low – modification implementations, allowing users to adapt their WMSs as business changes occur," said Gartner.
"We believe our position as a leader in the latest Magic Quadrant further confirms our Platform Thinking vision of connecting typically disparate business processes to deliver enhanced performance across the entire supply chain network," said Eddie Capel, executive vice president and COO, Manhattan Associates. "Many Manhattan customers have committed to this platform vision and our continued investment in supply chain innovation to help their businesses become more agile and efficient."
