This research published by IDC Manufacturing Insights is intended to assist companies to identify a "short list" of qualified firms that can help them to transform their supply chain execution systems and processes from conception through implementation.

Inspirage went through a thorough evaluation process in order to be considered in this report, including completing an in-depth request for Information, analyst vendor briefings, and providing several customer references for analyst interviews. For this report, Inspirage demonstrated its expertise in the primary supply chain execution functional areas including warehouse management, transportation management, global trade management, order management, inventory management, and logistics management.
