11 in a row: Manhattan leads Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for WMS

They say that leaders aren’t born, they’re made. At Manhattan Associates, we couldn’t agree more. We’re proud to have been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems – for the 11th time in a row.

Innovation is in our DNA and our commitment to creating exceptional products is reflected in the latest report from Gartner, in which Manhattan placed highest on both ability to execute and completeness of vision.

From industry firsts like our Order Streaming technology – an intelligent, AI-driven fulfilment workflow and task optimisation engine that supports simultaneous wave and waveless fulfilment and maximum resource utilisation – to the only warehouse execution system (WES) within a WMS – easily unlocking connectivity to any type of automation or robotics, regardless of make, model or quantity – Manhattan is consistently at the forefront of innovation in the supply chain.

“[Manhattan Associates] is on the forefront of developing and delivering capabilities within WMS that exploit emerging technologies and decision-making enhancements such as embedded analytics, machine learning, and AI.” – Gartner Research

When it comes to employee relationships, Manhattan WMS leads there as well. We invested in behavioral sciences to better understand how to personalise engagement and determine what motivates us as individuals. Then we embedded our learnings into employee engagement and labour management tools. They are designed with intuitive interfaces that empower supervisors and employees to more easily communicate and motivate, ensuring we create compelling and engaging workplaces with maximum productivity. Gartner says, “Manhattan Associates offers industry-leading labour management capabilities. It is enhancing its labour management capabilities with existing tools for labor reporting, planning and forecasting, and emerging tools for employee engagement.”

Finally, we’re also harnessing the power of cloud-native architectures to offer solutions that never need upgrading, easily extend to meet business needs, and effortlessly scale to match your performance needs. Gartner says, “[Manhattan Associates] has developed componentised architecture with its move to microservices which it has already delivered for its Manhattan Active™ Omni solution. Key parts of WMS are now in the new architecture, with more in progress.”

When you are ready to remaster the art of fulfilment, Manhattan Associates is ready to help.
