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.
What Being in the Leader Quadrant Means
Gartner's recognition of Macola as a "Leader" supports our commitment to manufacturers and our ability to provide the tools and processes manufacturers need to automate and grow their businesses.
