First among third parties

By DC Velocity Staff

If your company's in the market to buy supply chain software, you may be interested to learn what the pros are using. Armstrong & Associates Inc. recently asked major third-party logistics service providers what supply chain systems they favored. The 3PLs' top choices? G-Log, followed by Manhattan, i2, Manugistics and RedPrairie.

The recently published market research report, Trends in Third-Party Logistics Provider Supply Chain Systems Purchasing, Deployment, and Use, provides detailed information on trends in the 3PL supply chain systems market. Among other things, the report probes 3PLs' current levels of satisfaction with supply chain systems vendors and systems implementations as well as their preferences for systems pricing (transactional, subscription, upfront) and deployment methods (traditional license arrangements, hosted solutions, ASP models).

The complete study is available from Armstrong & Associates Inc. For information, visit
