Gartner Names Macola Software a Leader in Manufacturing ERP

Posted on Feb 15, 2018 6:41:11 PM by Nick Mears

Gartner Names a Leader

Gartner has named Macola Software a "Leader" in the FrontRunners Quadrant for Manufacturing Software. 

Starting with a list of over 315 manufacturing ERP products, Gartner, through a data-driven assessment, recognized 23 solutions that advanced into their famous quadrant methodology. 

With Macola's recognition as a "Leader," and it should be noted that there were only six who were placed in the "Leaders" quadrant, we believe this recognition to be a reflection of the investments that have been made in our flagship ERP solution, Macola 10, that directly benefit the manufacturing sector.

Driving Costs  Out of Your Supply Chain
 
Technology and business process automation are increasingly becoming strategic components of success for today’s digital economy. Whether you’re a manufacturer, distributor, retailer, 3PL or in the CPG, automotive or food industries, your competitiveness is often tied to two critical business applications responsible for managing your business, ERP and EDI. Successful implementations of these two key technologies can drive costs out of your supply chain execution and improve key metrics such as revenue per employee and cost per business transaction.
