For the 3rd consecutive year Vinculum has been featured in ‘Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems’.

Based on research with leading warehouse management solution companies all over the world, Gartner recognizes top WMS solution providers in its Magic Quadrant.

But, how does Gartner define WMS?

Gartner defines a warehouse management system (WMS) as “a software application that helps manage and intelligently execute the operations of a warehouse or distribution center (DC).”

According to them, WMS applications offer capabilities such as receiving, put-away, stock locating, inventory management, cycle counting, task interleaving, wave planning, order allocation, order picking, replenishment, packing, shipping, labor management and automated materials handling equipment (MHE) interfaces.

These systems natively exploit mobile devices along with bar-code and, possibly, RFID scanning/sensing to form the transactional foundation of a WMS.

This enables efficiencies of directed work activity and the delivery of accurate information in near real time. Gartner includes integrated functionality as components of a WMS evaluation.

These include labor management, slotting, yard management, voice picking, parcel manifesting, value-added services, light manufacturing/kitting and third-party logistics (3PL) billing.

So, how do they position WMS vendors in Magic Quadrant?

Based on WMS functionalities, Gartner has defined 5 levels in which each functionality fits and based on these levels, Gartner defines the position of each vendor in the magic quadrant.

And, how did Vinculum perform this year?
