for Sales and Operations Planning System of Differentiation
WILMINGTON, DE – May 8, 2017 – Arkieva, a leading provider of Advanced Planning and Scheduling software tools for manufacturing companies, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning System of Differentiation (SOD)1.”
The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. In the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation, Arkieva has been positioned as a Visionary, moving up as a Challenger from the previous quadrant.
“We believe our positioning as a visionary in the recent Sales and Operations Planning Systems of differentiation by Gartner, demonstrates Arkieva’s commitment to enhancing our supply chain technology solutions to meet changing market demands and emerging market trends,” said Georgi Genov, Chief Technology Officer at Arkieva. “This responsiveness is as a result of the valuable feedback and the great relationships that we’ve built with our customers over the years. Our best ideas of product enhancements and performance upgrades often originate from our commitment to solving our customers’ problems, swiftly and effectively.”
The Gartner study discusses the need for more enterprise-level S&OP solutions. Gartner Analyst Tim Payne notes that “Today, companies are generally further along in their journey toward (or beyond) Stage 4 maturity. Therefore, users’ requirements are more oriented toward enterprise-level S&OP, with strong supply chain modeling, financial impact analysis and tight integration back into the operational planning environment1.”
The Arkieva Supply Chain Planning solution suite provides a tightly integrated modular planning system that scales with businesses along different maturity stages. The solution comes with a wide spectrum of product functionality, including demand planning, inventory planning and optimization, finite scheduling, production optimization, margin optimization and business intelligence.
