Infor®, the industry cloud company, today announced that Gartner Inc. has positioned Infor as a Leader, for the fourth consecutive time, in its 2022 Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). Infor was positioned in the Leaders quadrant for its ability to execute and its completeness of vision.
“Despite being a very mature market, recent disruptions have spurred innovation, and while very challenging for some vendors and regions, the overall market is forecast to grow to over $4 billion by 2026 with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 13%,” Gartner states in the report. “WMS offerings continue to differ in areas such as usability, adaptability, decision support, scalability both up and down market, use of emerging technologies, and life cycle costs. Furthermore, customers increasingly favor suites that can support end-to-end supply chain and logistics process orchestration. Gartner refers to these areas as supply chain (SC) convergence and supply chain execution convergence (related to the convergence of operational activities).”
Vishal Minocha, Infor vice president of product management, said, “Market dynamics, evolving product portfolios, growing complexity, and a changing labor force are challenging companies to leverage automation and better utilize assets to fuel profitable growth. We believe Infor’s being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems, for the fourth consecutive time, recognizes our ability to enable agile fulfillment through Infor WMS.

This unified approach helps businesses holistically assess requirements, incorporate value-added services, prioritize tasks, and eliminate bottlenecks.
