Correction: ClearMetal Named a "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

"Cool Vendors in Artificial Intelligence Across the Supply Chain" report identifies innovative and impactful solution providers

SAN FRANCISCO, May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ClearMetal, the predictive logistics company, today announced that it has been included in the May 2018 "Cool Vendors in Artificial Intelligence Across the Supply Chain” report by Gartner, Inc.

“We believe our inclusion in Gartner’s Cool Vendor report validates our efforts to deliver data intelligence and our Predictive Transport Visibility solution to the retailers and manufacturers we serve,” said Adam Compain, CEO of ClearMetal. “As challenges have increased for our customers, it’s become increasingly important for them to gain differentiated capabilities from what has existed before. Our data-first approach to supply chain transformation delivers a unique competitive advantage in the form of reliable data, which is becoming increasingly recognized as a prerequisite to successful supply chain transformation strategies.”

According to the report, “Traditional applied analytics and visibility software platforms were compromised by not being able to streamline or home in high-quality, grouped source datasets (which in turn provided optimal pathways for accelerated machine learning and broader applications of AI techniques).”

Compain added, “Supply chain data has historically been unreliable and inaccurate, which inhibits visibility and transformation. Traditional solutions have aggregated and presented deficient supply chain data – resulting in inadequate visibility and sub-optimal inventory decisions. ClearMetal directly addresses this by solving the underlying data problem. We apply machine learning and AI to clean and make sense of underlying supply chain data to ensure accuracy and reliability. This becomes the foundation to the visibility solution we deliver and the strategic transformation we help usher in.”
