Globally expanding supply chain specialist EPG (Ehrhardt Partner Group) has for the first time been named as a Challenger in the respected Gartner Magic Quadrant report. The just-released 2022 positioning recognizes EPG for its ability to execute and the completeness of its vision. This consolidates the German-founded company's place among the elite of the global supply chain software industry. At a time when supply chain reliability, speed and efficiency are proving themselves more essential than ever to business stability and customer confidence, EPG says the role of the WMS is gaining greater importance.
“We believe to be named in the Challenger quadrant by Gartner offers independent proof that our WMS solutions are now firmly established among the front rank,” comments Dennis Kunz, Director Marketing at EPG. “We continue on our upward growth path across the world, providing our customers in existing and new territories with bespoke projects that fit each client’s needs, all backed up with our unparalleled range of supporting technologies. We never stand still, and we interpret the Gartner positioning as Challenger, as our team’s ability to innovate and execute.”
The Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ report is among the most admired in the industry. Gartner®, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to its executive and their teams carefully examines WMS providers on the global market every year and evaluates them independently based on various criteria, including scope of functions, geographic turnover and company size. The quadrant then visualizes how certain providers position themselves within the market.
EPG ONE™ is EPG’s full supply chain execution suite, with the LFS warehouse management system at its core, backed up by transport management, workforce management and world-leading voice-picking technologies, among others. The company works with blue-chip providers across the world, including ABInBev, DHL, DPD, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, NGK, Volkswagen and YKK. EPG recently announced a new addition to its worldwide roster of offices, with the opening of a Sydney facility to serve existing and new customers in the Australasia market.
With more than 30 years of experience in the logistics industry, EPG is driving continuous innovations of the product range throughout the supply chain from WMS, TMS, WFM, Pick by Voice, Dock & Yard management to Workforce Management, Contract and Billing and Checklist & Inspection App. Distinguishing from competitors is thereby an excellent experience from traditional warehouses to the most advanced distribution centers in the world (Level 4 and 5).
EPG also offers a more competitive pricing model compared to other vendors in regards of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Per Gartner, “WMS vendors are challenging established leaders in a mature market by targeting critical outcomes such as cost of ownership, automation support, adaptability and cloud services. Supply chain technology leaders should use this research to understand the current state of the WMS market.”
