SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–, 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 report.

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 solutions.
  • 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 profits.

“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.”
