Leaders provide comprehensive solutions that can be customized to serve multiple WMS modules with rich functionality and high integration
BOULDER, Col., Aug 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new report from Guidehouse Insights examines the competitive landscape for warehouse management systems (WMS) software.
WMS supports commercial inventory management and distribution logistics and today offers increasing efficiency and end-to-end system integration in a wide variety of operational environments. In particular, WMS is an important coordinating element within automated control systems that integrate advanced robotics, IoT sensor networks and enhanced connectivity over Wi-Fi 6 or 5G protocols. According to a Leaderboard report from Guidehouse Insights, Manhattan Associates, Oracle Fusion Cloud WMS and Infor SCM Cloudsuite are the leading providers of WMS software.
“The market for WMS software in manufacturing, e-commerce and other industrial environments is mature, but sees new growth engines in the wake of the market impact of COVID-19 as a new wave of investment supports recovered supply chains,” says Daniel Talero, research analyst at Guidehouse Insights. “However, barriers in this mature market must be removed before the full potential of WMS in new industrial applications is realized – especially redundancy and competition with enterprise resource planning software offerings that automate processes for all business functions, not just warehouses.”
Leaders provides comprehensive solutions that can be customized to serve multiple WMS modules with rich functionality and high integration. Companies that follow the leaders may lag behind in AI capabilities, augmented reality integration, microservice solutions or supply-chain execution (SCE) integration, according to the report.
The report, Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Warehouse Management System Software, examines the strategy and execution of 10 WMS software vendors on the following criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partner; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing and distribution; product performance; product portfolio; and endurance. Using Guidehouse Insights’ proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated and ranked with the aim of providing an objective assessment of their relative strengths and weaknesses in the global WMS software market.
