Kӧrber named as Leader in 2021 Magic Quadrant

Körber has been placed as a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) report.

To Körber, the recognition exemplifies the capabilities of its unmatched depth of technologies, spanning software to materials handling automation, to conquer supply chain complexities in some of the most demanding environments worldwide.

Chad Collins, CEO Software at Kӧrber Business Area Supply Chain, says the company’s depth separates them from other solutions providers.

“For us, our third consecutive placement as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems demonstrates how we assembled the complete product portfolio – including operational and simulation software, voice and robotics – to empower our customer’s to conquer the complexity of their distribution operations. Additionally, our global footprint allows us to service the world’s largest companies,” he says.

Körber provides WMS products specifically designed for the unique needs of small businesses, global enterprise and third-party logistics providers.

The German based company is experiencing a strong uptick in demand for the combination of its software and automation solutions.

The extension of the K.Motion Warehouse Management Systems with autonomous mobile robotics (AMR) and the K.Motion Warehouse Control System (WCS) gives customers a powerful technology suite to revolutionise picking and putaway material flows and processes.

  • Officeworks: The Australian chain of office supply stores capitalises on more than 100 AMRs, voice and RF users, and Kӧrber’s WMS.
  • dm-drogerie markt: Germany’s leading drugstore chain was awarded the German Logistics Prize 2020 and has been relying on Körber’s warehouse management system at all of its sites for more than 20 years as part of its efficient logistics IT.
  • Boot Barn: Western clothing provider uses Kӧrber’s WMS and WCS to consolidate three disparate automation systems and scale with its 40,000 sq. foot distribution center expansion.

Rene Hermes, CMO at Kӧrber Business Area Supply Chain, says supply chain is a mission-critical function – and now essentially a house-hold term.

“More than ever, businesses need a partner that not only offers technology, but also works alongside them to develop a solution tailored to their unique complexities. Regardless of consumer expectations, the pandemic, the regulatory environment and everything in-between, we ensure customers’ warehousing and logistics processes to thrive,” he says
