Within the first few months after coming together as a single brand, Körber has been listed as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). As a unified, global team, I feel this is the first major milestone that speaks to the power and potential behind our portfolio and technology experts. We’re proud of this achievement, and we feel it means great things for our customers and the industry as a whole.
Solving challenges in today’s supply chain takes more than what people, processes, and systems provide individually. Bringing these things together to form complete logistics capabilities creates the separation businesses need in tight-margin, highly-competitive industries where customers constantly demand more. This is one of the biggest challenges businesses face today. Backing this up, a recent survey we performed with supply professionals around the world found that almost 50% of people consider integrating different components of their operation as a top challenge.
Our strongest benefit as a supply chain technology provider is the range of solutions offered and our ability to tie them together within a business’s existing supply chain ecosystem. We’re a single partner for end-to-end logistics. This bears fruit in four different ways:
- A single partner brings adaptability to your operations, allowing faster reactions to changes.
- Systems built to integrate make it easier to turn massive amounts of raw data from your systems into insights.
- End-to-end leads to greater efficiency thanks to all your systems working cohesively.
- More connected systems build greater visibility into operations and make it easier to connect with your partner.
We think of ourselves as a technology house built to beat supply chain complexity on a bigger scale. Our solutions span software, automation, voice, vision, mobility solutions, robotics, materials handling equipment, software, and SAP consulting and implementation. But, Körber is more than that. Our global teams and partners around the world know how to bring the solutions together and work with customers to put solutions into motion.
We’re striving to change how businesses think about supply chain – turning supply chain complexity into a strategic differentiator. Get a copy of the Magic Quadrant here and see what Gartner has to say about us.
