Made4net Positioned in Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems

New Jersey, March 1, 2017 - Made4Net, a leading WMS and supply chain execution software vendor, announced today that it has once again been recognized as a Specialist WMS suite vendor in the Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems”.    

Made4net was lauded for innovation, technology and supply chain execution convergence with several product categories that include warehouse management, yard management, labor management, and three transportation management offerings.  
 
Over the past several years Made4net has been growing its market share with on premises deployments, while maintaining a continuous expansion in its cloud/SaaS offering.   

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 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 often have solid WMS solutions for a specific industry or geography, they are not as broad as the WMS solutions in other quadrants, and they won't likely evolve enough to comprehensively support SCE convergence.”
