Manhattan Associates Named a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems

Analyst firm recognises Manhattan’s completeness of vision and ability to execute

LONDON and ATLANTA, 26 April, 2018

Manhattan Associates Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today announced it has been named a Visionary in Gartner Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems (TMS). The company believes this recognition validates the deep functionality of its TMS software, its compelling supply chain execution (SCE) vision, and its unique position in the market.

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant measures vendors based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. Manhattan’s TMS solution bridges both the substantive capabilities and complex integrations needed by top-tier clients (shippers that spend more than €80 million annually on freight) and more streamlined solutions with the lower TCO required by mid-sized clients (shippers that spend between €20 and €80 million annually on freight).

“Manhattan is pleased to be named a Transportation Management Systems Visionary by Gartner,” said Gregg Lanyard, Director of Product Management for Manhattan Associates. “We view this as a significant validation of our highly innovative TMS solution, and believe that we are uniquely positioned to serve the needs of highly-sophisticated large shippers and their more streamlined medium-sized counterparts.”

The Gartner TMS report states, “Controlling transportation costs, creating internal efficiencies, increasing visibility and securing transport capacity are currently the top motivators for investing in a TMS.” Manhattan believes its TMS solution offers rich functionality in each of these key areas and builds on the company’s expansive SCE convergence vision.

Part of the Manhattan ActiveTM Supply Chain Solution suite, Manhattan’s TMS offers end-to-end business process support for all transportation functions, including strategic analysis, procurement, and operational planning to execution, visibility, and freight payment and claims. It is designed to reduce transportation costs, improve service levels, automate processes, streamline execution, and lower operational risk. Today, Manhattan also announced significant additions to this rich feature set with new digital freight matching, mobility, and visibility enhancements.

On Gartner’s Peer Insights page, a number of Manhattan’s TMS customers praised the company for its rapid, cloud-based deployment and excellent WMS and ERP integration. “I like how the vendor partners with us, it never feels like a vendor and client relationship,” said one anonymous customer. “They are committed to delivering an excellent product from start to finish.” [2]
