BluJay Named in ‘Challengers’ Section of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

4th December 2018

BluJay Solutions has been named in the Challengers quadrant of Gartner’s 2018 “Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks.”  The evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Connecting with partners upstream and downstream in the supply chain is increasingly important in global trade. BluJay’s strong network of carriers, LSPs, customers, and suppliers – along with supply chain execution (SCE) capabilities – make its ecosystem unique in the industry. BluJay is the only SCE vendor positioned in the first-ever Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks (MESCBN) report.

Gartner reviewed vendors based on a sufficient multienterprise software offering, including capabilities in a cross-industry-leading network, information hub, universal cross-domain functions and core supply chain applications. Additionally, each of the vendors must include a cloud offering as the core delivery model in support of a multitenant architecture.

“As supply chains become increasingly connected and global, so must the technology and networks that support them. BluJay is focused on providing an ecosystem that helps our customers create economic growth while best serving their customers. We understand that creating seamless workflows between supply chain partners is critical to our customers’ success, and it’s a pillar of our vision for the Global Trade Network,” said Patrick Maley, CMO/EVP Product Strategy and Marketing at BluJay Solutions.

“We view BluJay’s placement as a Challenger in Gartner’s MESCBN Magic Quadrant as further validation that our approach of bringing together a network of supply chain partners to coordinate and execute supply chain processes is and will continue to be a key driver as supply chains evolve. It also reminds us that there is more to be done with emerging technologies such as advanced analytics and artificial intelligence. However, we feel BluJay is uniquely positioned to drive dramatic value for our customers by combining a strong platform of supply chain execution applications with a powerful global network,” said Maley.

In the report, Gartner states: “Multienterprise supply chain business networks support a community of trading partners – of any tier and type within a network – that needs to coordinate and execute supply chain processes across multiple enterprises.”
