RedPrairie Supply Chain Software Competitors

Primary Competitor With core competencies in both warehouse management and transportation management systems, RedPrairie's most direct software competitor is Manhattan Associates. Both supply chain management software vendors support large and complex 24 by 7 operations, cater to B2B fulfillment centers and distributors driven by allocations for both inbound shipments and large reserve stock inventories, as well as large retail chains and direct to consumer fulfillment centers, among other overlapping segments. And both supply chain management software vendors are regarded as best of breed supply chain system providers.
Warehouse Management Competitors The HighJump Warehouse Management System (WMS) is a very strong competitor in the warehouse management software market. The company counts over 1,500 global customers and its supply chain software supports high volume and complex distribution environments as well as core processes such as such as receiving, inventory management, put-away/flowthrough, sale order processing, replenishment/pick/pack, loading and shipping.

JDA Software Group counts over 5,500 midmarket and enterprise customers, primarily in the retail, grocery, manufacturing and wholesale-distribution industries, with its Supply and Demand Optimization (SDO) system.

JDA's acquisition of Manugistics facilitated the company to significantly step up its software line with supply management, demand management and pricing, and transportation and logistics software applications.

SAP Supplier Relationship Management is the arch nemesis and direct competitor to Oracle. SAP has been recognized by Gartner as the world's leading SCM software vendor with a total market share of 19.7%. The German company possesses large customer concentrations within the retail, manufacturing, service and pharmaceutical industries.

SaaS Competitors Software as a Service (SaaS) or cloud supply chain software adoption has lagged other types of enterprise software such as CRM, HR and other business applications, but is nonetheless now seeing increased interest as a method for buyers to eliminate capital expenditures, lower IT staffing costs and outsource a non-core competency of IT application management.
