Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard: Warehouse Management System Software

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 10 WMS Vendors

The market for warehouse management systems (WMS) software across manufacturing, e-commerce, and other industrial settings is mature, but seeing new drivers of growth in the wake of COVID-19 market impacts, as a new wave of investment supports rehabilitated supply chains. WMS supports commercial inventory management and distribution logistics and today provides increasing efficiencies and end-to-end system integration in a wide variety of operational environments. In particular, WMS is a key coordinating element within automated control systems that integrate advanced robotics, IoT sensor networks, and improved connectivity through Wi-Fi 6 or 5G protocols. However, barriers in this mature market must be addressed before WMS’s full potential in new industry applications is realized—in particular, redundancy and competition with enterprise resource planning software offerings that automate processes across business functions, not just in warehouses.

Guidehouse Insights defines WMS as a software platform within warehouse operations that uses process automation within an end to-end configuration across receiving, inventory processing, and shipping. WMS software can be an on-premises solution, deployed only on the operator’s internal network and possibly integrating with existing ERP systems, or it can be an on-cloud solution, with constant version updating and offsite data management.

This Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard examines the Strategy and Execution of 10 WMS software vendors on the following criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; product performance; product portfolio; and staying power. Using Guidehouse Insights’ proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing an objective assessment of their relative strengths and weaknesses in the global WMS software market.
