MINNEAPOLIS -- HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, has announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)1. This is the first time HighJump has been placed in this quadrant, moving up from the Visionary Quadrant of years’ past. According to Gartner, “The critical characteristic of the Challengers is that they have capable, proven and mature products, with numerous live customers. They also have a consistent track record of successful implementations.”
“We believe our positioning in the Challenger quadrant by Gartner is confirmation of the maturity of our solution and customer base,” said Russell Fleischer, HighJump Software CEO. “Our solutions are some of the most configurable on the market and provide the flexibility that our customers need to grow. This adaptability has led to an extremely low total cost of ownership and is a driving force behind our traction in the market of warehouse management systems.”
In its assessment of the WMS market, Gartner noted, “Given weak business cases, it would seem logical that businesses would allocate limited IT resources to higher-priority initiatives, such as upgrading BI, CRM and ERP; improving SCP and sales and operations planning; or implementing TMSs. However, WMS market demand has remained higher than Gartner anticipated for the past several years. In talking with clients, Gartner has found that many organizations see now as the time to invest in a stronger SCE foundation to position them better for a return to growth, and that upgrading their warehousing and fulfillment capabilities is necessary.”
Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, evaluated several WMS solution offerings in its Magic Quadrant research. The report positions vendors based on completeness of vision and the ability to execute on that vision.
