BEIJING, CHINA - Media
OutReach - 23 March 2020 - Infor, a global leader in business cloud software specialized by industry, today
announced that Gartner Inc. has positioned Infor in the Leaders quadrant of the
2019 Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems. Infor was positioned in the Leaders quadrant for its
ability to execute and its completeness of vision.
"While a very mature market,
WMS offerings continue to differ in areas like usability, adaptability,
intelligence, scalability up and down market, and life cycle costs," Gartner
said in the report. "Furthermore, customers increasingly favor supply chain
suites that can support end-to-end logistics process orchestration."
Rod Johnson, EVP & GM,
Manufacturing and Supply Chain, Infor, said, "We believe that Infor's position
as a Leader in this Gartner Magic Quadrant reaffirms our belief that a single,
unified, global warehousing solution built to take advantage of business value
of the cloud, provides a strong foundation for sustainable growth in the age of
customer-driven supply chains."
Infor CloudSuite WMS is the next evolution of Infor
SCE (Supply Chain Execution), combining Infor's enhanced capabilities in
warehouse management with the computing power of the cloud. As a cloud
offering, Infor CloudSuite WMS offers the same experience to customers, no matter
how they choose to deploy it (multi-tenant, single-tenant or on-premises), and
it has native support for 14 languages.
The newest member of Infor's
CloudSuite products, CloudSuite WMS also brings the agile, flexible and proven
performance Infor cloud customers have come to expect.
Visual warehousing, labor
management, and open API framework come standard with CloudSuite WMS, to help
reduce the need to add additional features or customizations, while paving the
way for advanced warehousing capabilities.
