Research cites e2open’s integrated partner network and continuous innovation in supply chain planning capabilities to deliver end-user value

AUSTIN, Texas – March 21, 2022e2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), a leading network-based provider of a cloud-based, mission-critical, end-to-end supply chain management platform, has been named a leader in the Supply Chain Planning Technology Value Matrix 2022, published by Nucleus Research. Nucleus has named e2open a leader in supply chain planning for the third year in a row, again distinguished as the vendor with the strongest functionality.

The research evaluates supply chain planning vendors based on the value delivered to customers through software functionality and usability. The Nucleus Supply Chain Planning Value Matrix report is designed to help evaluate vendor short lists and choose the solution that delivers the greatest return for a customer’s environment. e2open’s end-to-end supply chain planning solution helps manufacturers connect demand with supply, planning with execution, and partners both upstream and downstream. Utilizing advanced technologies, multi-enterprise data, analytics, and an efficient user experience on a single platform, the intelligent application provides clients with planning accuracy and the ability to sense and respond to disruptions of any size.

With every release, e2open unlocks more value from that potential, leveraging advanced technologies like AI and machine learning to deliver improved business results and ongoing innovation.”
