IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 04, 2016) - JustEnough Software, a leading provider of demand management solutions for retail, wholesale and direct-to-consumer businesses worldwide, today announced that it has been positioned in the "Challengers" quadrant for Gartner's September 2016 Magic Quadrant for Merchandise Assortment Management Applications.
Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Merchandise Assortment Management Applications research is designed to help retail CIOs evaluate assortment management providers. This year's report suggests that "taking advantage of the store base is critical for a digitalized retail experience that delights customers, but this requires a significant refinement of the assortments offered by channels. Big data combined with advanced analytics and algorithmic approaches is required to create store-specific assortments that are aligned to specific customer behavior segments."
"We are honored to be recognized by Gartner and believe the report validates our strength in the marketplace," said Malcolm Buxton, Chief Executive Officer, JustEnough Software. "Our completeness of vision and ability to execute is what sets JustEnough and our suite of retail planning solutions apart from the competition."
