Two New Gartner® Reports on Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms Name project44 a Leader

In an era in which supply chains span the globe and customer expectations are higher than ever, real-time visibility platforms have become mission-critical to all kinds of organizations. No longer just part of behind-the-scenes operations, the most innovative and reliable visibility platforms are revolutionizing the way we track and manage transportation. Their capabilities are empowering the companies that use them to transform the customer experience from end to end.

Today’s leading brands use the best of these platforms to harness the full potential of real-time data, connectivity, and analytics to optimize their transportation operations, improve supply chain efficiency, enhance collaboration, and empower superior customer experiences.

To help supply chain technology leaders evaluate real-time transportation visibility platform (RTTVP) vendors, Gartner has recently published two new reports; and the project44 team is proud to have been recognized very favorably in both:

To learn more about these reports and how project44 is positioned within the analysis, watch the short webinar recording below, or read on for a summary of the highlights.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant — A Trusted Guide

The Gartner Magic Quadrant is a prestigious industry market report that evaluates and ranks technology providers based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the market, including vendor capabilities, strengths, weaknesses, and future trends.

Gartner evaluates and ranks technology providers based on two critical sets of criteria:

  • For “Completeness of Vision,” Gartner analysts evaluate and rate vendors on their understanding of how market forces — current and future market direction, innovation, and customer needs and competitive forces — can be exploited to create opportunities for the vendor.
  • For “Ability to Execute,” Gartner analysts evaluate providers based on the quality and efficacy of their processes, systems, methods and procedures, and ultimately judge vendors on their ability and success in capitalizing on their stated vision.

Gartner defines a “Leader” in this Magic Quadrant as an organization with a compelling vision and a reliable ability to execute on delivering proven products with broad, deep, and differentiated functionality that addresses a wide range of user requirements.

In this year’s report we saw project44 moving up to be the leader in both completeness of vision and ability to execute.

The Gartner Critical Capabilities Report — A Closer Look at Use Cases

Published to accompany the Gartner Magic Quadrant report, this report examines the leading use cases for products in the category, and then identifies the critical capabilities needed to fulfill the needs of those use cases. Each vendor’s product or service is evaluated in terms of how well it delivers each capability, on a five-point scale.

The report found that RTTVP vendors’ ability to support multiple modes and geographies varies significantly — not all RTTVP vendors are able to support complex transportation networks.

It also noted that while differences in core functionality between vendor offerings often might seem minimal, differentiation can be found in the approach to data quality, usability, implementation effort levels required, partners and carrier networks, as well extended capabilities.

project44 scored the highest in 4 out of 5 use cases in this year’s Critical Capabilities report, including highest and lowest complexity use cases, which demonstrates project44’s best-in-class ability to serve customers at any level.

Broad Market Research and In-depth Vendor Evaluations Help Inform Strategic Buying Decisions

Gartner continues to provide technology research and vendor evaluations that get at the heart of what a market needs and who is meeting those needs. These two latest reports investigating the RTTVP market are no exception, and the project44 team is proud to have earned such high rankings.
