Gartner names Körber as a ‘leader’ in warehouse management systems

Körber has been named as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) report.

To Körber, this recognition exemplifies the capabilities of its unmatched depth of technologies, spanning warehouse management, warehouse control, order management, robotics, voice and simulation to empower global businesses to further digitize and automate warehouses in response to today’s extensive supply chain pressures.

Chad Collins, CEO software at Kӧrber business area supply chain, says: “More than 86 percent of companies recognize a strong supply chain is mission critical, and 71 percent indicate that their supply chain complexity has grown over the last year.

“We view our fifth consecutive placement as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems as another milestone in our journey to become the global supply chain software champion.

“Our suite of warehouse management, control and simulation software, order management, voice and robotics solutions enables companies to build agile, efficient and sustainable supply chains. We help those who move goods, to do good.”

As half of companies today focus simply on trying to meet consumer expectations, effective supply chain technology plays a sizeable role.

Körber’s WMS solutions make this possible, by encompassing the unique needs of small businesses, global enterprises and third-party logistics providers, all driving to meet end consumer expectations.

By combining the K.Motion Warehouse Management System with autonomous mobile robotics (AMR), the K.Motion Warehouse Control System (WCS), K.Sight CLASS, and voice, vision and mobility systems, businesses have the technology at their fingertips to revolutionize the end-to-end supply chain – from source to doorstep delivery.
