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.

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.
