World’s Leading Information and Technology Research and Advisory Company Positions Arkieva in the Challenger Quadrant
WILMINGTON, DE – May 11, 2015 – Arkieva (arkieva.com), designer and provider of the Arkieva suite of Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software tools for manufacturing companies, has been recognized by Gartner Inc. as a Challenger in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation1.
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation reviews the performance of technology solutions for supply chain planning that target companies higher in the sales and operations planning maturity process. Vendors must meet certain criteria such as product functionality and configurability, global coverage and revenue to be included in the Magic Quadrant process.
“We are honored that Gartner has included Arkieva in the first ever Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation,” said Sujit Singh, chief operating officer of Arkieva. “We believe our position in the challenger quadrant, in fact, describes the very core of who we are and what we do. For example, we consistently challenge the notion that supply chain software is just like any other system requiring an out of the box implementation without any configuration of client specific business rules.”
Arkieva software solutions provide a wide spectrum of product functionality, including demand planning, inventory planning, finite scheduling, production optimization, margin optimization and business intelligence. For more than 20 years, the collaborative aspects of Arkieva have made it possible for their clients to achieve the best possible outcomes in supply chain planning for their business.
“Arkieva is a great partner for Momentive by providing software tools configured specifically to fit our supply chain as well as leading edge thinking to our supply chain challenges,” said William Duty, director of supply chain center of excellence at Momentive. “The solutions have allowed us to accelerate our ability to analyze and act; which is key in today’s world.”
