JDA Software takes lead in Gartner Magic Quadrant report
Arizona-based software firm JDA Software Group has been recognised by Gartner as a leader in the 'Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems'.
The Magic Quadrant report acknowledges JDA’s warehouse management software, making it the only company to be named as a leader by Gartner in all five Gartner Magic Quadrants for supply chain and retail systems.
The company services a number of sectors, mainly retail, and recently added Mexican footwear retailer Capa de Ozono and British food store chain The Co-Op to its client base.
A company’s positioning on Gartner’s quadrants refers to its ability to execute its strategy. JDA’s Warehouse Management software is part of its Intelligent Fulfillment strategy that makes solutions more flexible via cloud and mobile services.
The company also operates JDA Labs, its research and development division where its data scientists are tasked with finding and creating new solutions to improve the supply chain and retail market.
“JDA is not only the largest independent supply chain management solutions provider, we also have deeply rooted expertise in warehouse management spanning more than three decades working with some of the most complex warehouse environments in the world,” said Dan Grimm, vice president of solutions strategy.
“We feel being positioned as a leader by Gartner further validates our strength, positioning and expertise in this space.”
JDA is the largest independent supply chain management solutions provider with the fastest WMS deployment cycles, according to the company, which added that it expects to see huge changes in the warehouse management sector over the next ten years, thanks to innovations like drones, robotics, and augmented reality.
