Conference 2019

a leading Enterprise Artificial Intelligence® provider, today
announced that it has been named a “Cool Vendor” in Gartner’s April 2019 Cool
Vendors in Artificial Intelligence Across the Supply Chain

In the Cool Vendors in Artificial Intelligence Across the Supply Chain
report, Gartner says, “Vendors continue to introduce solutions that
deploy or embed AI techniques to meet supply chain objectives. Chief
supply chain leaders can use this research to discover innovative
technology solutions from Cool Vendors’ offerings of AI’s broader
foundational, disruptive and strategic roles.” As for their evaluation
criteria, Gartner states, “When considering vendors for this year’s Cool
Vendors research, we focused on the following three key elements: 1.
Sustainability and Scalability… 2. Augmented and Embedded… 3. Service
and Integration.”

According to the report, “AI encompasses a range of technologies,
techniques and specialist algorithms that empower machines, systems and
devices to make autonomous decisions that previously required human
intervention. This automation can accelerate the pace and advance the
precision of business operations, as well as free up valuable resources
for redeployment or more creative assignments.”

The report also provides recommendations for “supply chain leaders
responsible for technology and solutions for supply chain operations,”
including the following:

  • “Identify the role of AI and how it can be embedded in, combined with
    or used to augment both existing and future processes and technology
  • Clearly communicate the key benefits of AI as a progressive and
    evolving suite of functionality and services across the supply chain,
    especially in its ability to influence across processes and technology
    decision making and planning.”’s suite of Enterprise AI applications empowers businesses to
enhance decision-making, increase efficiency and improve business
operations. Its technology mitigates issues before they happen and
eliminates waste across supply chain functions. By finding valuable
patterns hidden in data and continually learning, its applications can,
for example, predict product quality issues and equipment failures,
understand inventory needs, and anticipate demand to increase flow and

“We believe that being named a Cool Vendor by Gartner is a tremendous
validation of not only our technology, but also the impact that
Enterprise AI is having throughout the supply chain,” said CEO
Steve Pratt. “Businesses are faced with constantly changing yet
mission-critical supply and demand variables, and AI enables them to
quickly adapt to the current environment.”

Throughout Gartner’s Supply Chain Executive Conference 2019, from May
13-16 in Phoenix, AZ, will have a presence in both a booth in
the exhibit hall and a separate area in the engagement zone. They will
offer attending supply chain leaders a firsthand look at how the

Joshi, President, and Gaurav Palta, VP Enterprise Services, will be
joined by a top CPG customer to present a session titled “Break the
Rules of the Supply Chain with Enterprise AI” in which they will discuss
