Logility Named a Leader in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Retail Assortment Management Applications

ATLANTA — October 12, 2017 — Logility, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative supply chain optimization and advanced retail planning solutions, today announced the company was named a leader in Gartner's 2017 Magic Quadrant for Retail Assortment Management Applications.
According to the report, "The volume of inquiries from Gartner clients indicates that the market for retail assortment management applications (RAMAs) continues to be strong, with demand from Tier 1 and 2 retailers in all segments of North America, Western Europe and Asia/Pacific. This is in response to the need to improve inventory productivity by ensuring that the assorted products are stocked in the most appropriate locations to serve customers, whether their product will be selected in store, picked up in store or shipped from the store."

Logility Voyager Solutions'™ advanced retail planning and optimization platform helps retailers deliver a unified retail commerce experience by breaking down silos to automate merchandise, assortment, allocation, and replenishment. By removing the barriers associated with legacy processes and solutions including the use of error–prone spreadsheets, over–allocation and relying on last year's numbers as a planning starting point, retailers are able to strategically plan, act, react and adapt based on actual customer demand and current market trends.

"Today's shoppers expect a consistent, unified experience across all retail channels as they research, compare and purchase on their mobile devices, online and in store," said Allan Dow, president, Logility. "Through Logility Voyager Solutions' advanced analytics, retailers have the visibility to confidently plan and execute over multiple horizons (seasons, months, weeks, days) to optimally serve customer demand and accelerate inventory turns. We are committed to delivering the solutions retailers need to stay ahead of the ever–changing consumer and ensure the right product is available in the right location at the right time."
