Network covering broad European road transportation activities to provide visibility services and beyond.
Vienna, Austria, February 5, 2019 – Sixfold, provider of the most revolutionary real-time and predictive visibility platform in the supply chain industry, is proud to be acknowledged as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Real-Time Visibility Providers.
“We are delighted to be included in this first-time list of providers in the Market Guide for Real-Time Visibility as we view Gartner as an authority that brings true testament to the value we’re delivering for our customers,” said Wolfgang Wörner, CEO and Founder of Sixfold. “We feel this validates that we’re providing a platform that addresses market needs, and we’ve created something unique that customers are embracing as their visibility tool of choice for gaining ‘a birds-eye view of shipments’.”
Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, and creators of the “Magic Quadrant”, published the report in November 2018, which provides an overview of challenges and trends in the visibility space and details regarding solutions providers. In the report, Gartner indicates that visibility/traceability across the end-to-end supply chain is one of the top three most important funded supply chain initiatives for 2018*.
Customers like Deutsche Rockwool substantiate that visibility is a high priority. “Real-time visibility by Sixfold was the last missing piece of the puzzle for Rockwool,” according to Jens Püttmann, Manager Logistics DE, DEUTSCHE ROCKWOOL. “Now we can track the entire supply chain digitally, from pickup at the factory to unloading. All information is available in real time, without the driver having to give status messages.”
