Softeon Again Recognized as a Visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems

Positioned the Furthest for 'Completeness of Vision' and 'Ability to Execute' in the Visionaries Quadrant

Softeon is pleased yet again in its positioning in the recently released Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) for 2018.*

Softeon, a top global provider of WMS, Distributed Order Management (DOM) and other supply chain software solutions, was again positioned in the furthest in the Visionaries quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems, in terms of “Completeness of Vision” and “Ability to Execute,” also improving its placement for vision in the Magic Quadrant this year.

“Softeon brings rich, innovative capabilities to its WMS solution and broad supply chain software suite,” notes Dan Gilmore, chief marketing officer at Softeon. “More important is our track record of 100 percent deployment success and highly satisfied customers, a pedigree we feel no other WMS provider can match. Softeon delivers success - every time.”

Through advanced capabilities including task optimization, order picking, e-fulfillment, labor and resource management, cartonization and pallet building, kitting and assembly, materials handling and ERP integration, Softeon WMS powers many great logistics performers including Duluth Trading Co., The Honest Company, Sears Home Services, DB Schenker, Casey’s General Stores, Lenova, Denso and Suncast.

Softeon continues to “up the ante” with its Distribution Center of the Future innovation lab, which has already led to the release of the new Order Fulfillment System (OFS), a unique and powerful solution that directly manages a variety of picking subsystems (smart carts, Voice, pick-to-light, put walls, mobile robots and more) without the need for any third-party control systems.

This system significantly reduces hardware costs for Softeon customers and eliminates the need for interfaces from the WMS to these proprietary control systems. More importantly, it allows Softeon to apply advanced order planning logic in combination with sophisticated slotting and replenishment planning and execution to drive double-digit gains in picking efficiency -  critical to keeping e-fulfillment costs under control.

This is all available on Softeon’s market-leading integrated software platform, based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), a single data model across the entire suite, delivering fully web-native and Cloud-ready solutions that can be easily configured to meet customer-specific processing requirements without modifications.
