Hackensack, NJ, May 16, 2018 – made4net, a leading WMS and supply chain execution software vendor, announced today that it has once again been recognized in the May 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems and listed in the Specialist WMS suite Vendors category.
According to Gartner, a Specialist WMS suite vendor is an “independent software vendors (ISVs) that focuses primarily or exclusively on holistic WMS suites, although they might offer some additional capabilities.”
“made4net helps customers to seamlessly synchronize their supply chain while optimizing labor and increasing fulfilment efficiency” said Amit Levy, Managing Director, made4net. “We are proud to be recognized by Gartner for our WMS market solutions and will continue to deliver best-in-class warehouse management systems that will drive our customer’s performance and solve operational challenges.”
Gartner WMS Magic Quadrant Market Definition
“Gartner defines a warehouse management system (WMS) as “a software application that helps manage the operations of a warehouse or distribution center (DC).” WMS applications offer capabilities such as receiving, put-away, stock locating, inventory management, cycle counting, task interleaving, wave planning, order allocation, order picking, replenishment, packing, shipping, labor management and automated materials-handling equipment interfaces.” According to Gartner, “Although there might be an assumption that vendors in the other quadrants are better choices for new WMS buyers, in certain circumstances Niche Players are just as good or better choices for prospective users. This is because they might focus on a geographic or vertical component of the market that is meaningful to particular users. However, this focus alone is not a compelling-enough differentiator for a vendor to ascend to a leadership position. It would also have to perform well in other dimensions. Although some vendors in the Niche Players quadrant have solid WMS solutions for a specific industry or geography, they are not as broad as the WMS solutions in other quadrants. They likely won’t evolve enough to comprehensively support SCE convergence.”
