Aptos’ cloud-based Enterprise Order Management recognized in inaugural IDC MarketScape study that evaluates next-generation order management software
ATLANTA, August 2, 2018 — Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Distributed Order Orchestration for Midmarket Retailers Vendor Assessment, (Document #US44100918), July 2018.
The inaugural IDC MarketScape study evaluates key distributed order management software vendors that have invested significant R&D dollars to advance their platforms and capabilities to solve and get ahead of current and future retail order management and distribution challenges.
According to the new report, the retail order management market continues to evolve with the focus shifting from merely enabling simplified bulk order management to acting as a central lynchpin in a strategic omni-channel distribution world.
The report highlighted several strengths of the cloud-based Aptos Enterprise Order Management solution, including: “Aptos’ POS interfaces seamlessly with its DOM, which received praise from several users for making their associate experience ‘exceptional.’ The UI also received praise for the speed of adoption, and the system as a whole was commended on the time to value of just a few months.”
Also included in the report was feedback from an Aptos customer, who stated: “Aptos’ order management is the heart and lungs of our organization.”
Current users also praised Aptos for its culture of wanting to do the right thing for its customers. “With Aptos, you can pick up the phone and call them,” said one current user. “They’re very flexible and easygoing, which makes life way easier for everyone.”
Victoria Brown, research manager, global supply chain execution, IDC Retail Insights notes, “Order management has evolved tremendously in the past several years. No longer is it acceptable for retailers to make due with inventory as it is placed. Order orchestration across distribution points has become a competitive necessity in today’s retail landscape.”
“As retailers are faced with unprecedented complexity in omni-channel fulfillment, they need a technology partner that can ensure every order is sourced from the most profitable location, while still satisfying customer needs,” said Vikas Aron, director, order management at Aptos. “Aptos is proud to be recognized as a Leader in IDC MarketScape’s assessment of distributed order management vendors for midmarket retailers.”
