The report states, “For several years, Gartner has heard from customers that logistics applications, including TMS, have trailed other application areas in terms of enhancements to the UI and application support for more advanced and flexible workflow. In this year’s Magic Quadrant, one of the notable areas of differentiation among vendors is user experience. Given customer interest, this area has received more consideration in the evaluation of offerings.”
Customers deploying the Cloud Logistics solution have offered their own praise. Kevin Mitchell, North American Director of Transportation and Logistics for Sapa Extrusions Americas offered, “The system’s flexibility easily adapted to meet our requirements while the truly intuitive user interface has led to rapid user adoption. The go-live was a smooth one-day non-event. Sapa team members were self-sufficient the next day and have had no issues navigating the solution because of the modern, intuitive user interface.”
Likewise, many industry publications have awarded Cloud Logistics for the very same innovation and approach to usability. In 2016, the company was named to the Food Logistics 100+ Top Food & Beverage Software and Technology Providers list. SupplyChainBrain also named Cloud Logistics as a Top Supply Chain Partner.
As a provider of one of the most innovative user interfaces in supply chain management solutions, Cloud Logistics recently provided a perspective on modern software design in Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The article, entitled “All I Want for Christmas is TMS 2K17” can be found here.

We have tremendous respect for the time, effort and diligence Bart De Muynck and the team at Gartner invest to make this report highly credible and valuable to the community of shippers and 3PLs.”
