Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant WMS Leaders Report

Email | Print

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) continue to play a vital role in supply chain technology. New adopters are looking for help managing the operations of a warehouse or distribution center. Early adopters want improved adaptability and support for automation. Today, many want cloud-based services that take advantage of the latest innovations and the cost savings that come with remote WMS management.


Where do you begin your search for a WMS solution?

We suggest you begin with a recent Gartner study that provides an excellent overview of the WMS space and the leading vendors. Körber Supply Chain (formerly HighJump) is proud to be recognized as a Magic Quadrant leader and pleased to offer this report to you for download as a helpful tool in your search for new or updated WMS solutions.


What Should I Look for in a WMS Solution?

Basic WMS functionality is paramount to any solution. Be sure the systems you are evaluating support basic core WMS capabilities such as:

  • Receiving
  • Put-away
  • Storing
  • Counting and picking
  • Packing and shipping

We highly recommend that you choose the right-sized solution for your supply chain management needs. This will ensure that today’s basic needs are met and that you can expand functionality as your business grows.


What Should I Look for in a WMS Vendor?

Functionality is of primary importance when choosing a WMS solution. However, there are other criteria to consider. You need a WMS partner who is strong in not only product offerings but also implementation, training, service and support. You’ll want a vendor that is experienced, well established, and has an innovative future vision of WMS and Supply Chain Management (SCM).

Your solution provider should be able to provide several deployment options (including on-prem or cloud) as well as work with your current technology architecture and ecosystem of applications and partners.


Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems is a guide for supply chain executives and practitioners to aid in the WMS decision making process. In Gartner’s May 2020 report, WMS market leaders are measured and mapped from two perspectives: ability to execute and completeness of vision. WMS vendors are placed in one of four quadrants, with leaders in the top right quadrant as shown below.
