Analyst reports manufacturing executives are looking to MES software as an enterprise solution that aligns manufacturing and supply chain technologies.
Savigent Software, Inc., a company specializing in event-driven manufacturing operations management software, has been named a Representative Vendor in the Pure-Play MES vendor class category in the Market Guide for Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Software by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company. The Market Guide, released on June 21, 2016, assesses the state of the MES market and makes recommendations for manufacturing executives pursuing the deployment of MES applications. According to the Gartner report Pure-Play vendors “derive 100% of their revenue from sales of MES software and the services to support those sales. They typically focus on a few vertical industries and design their products to provide rich feature sets that would not be available from enterprise software vendors.”
The Gartner report found that “companies successfully implementing MES, view MES as an enterprise solution, not just something for individual plant performance improvement.” The report advises: “When evaluating MES systems, look at configurability, flexibility and ease of integration (and not just ERP integration).”
“Unlike rigid Manufacturing Operations Management software or point solutions, our software provides tremendous flexibility to match the unique requirements of any business,” says Jimmy Asher, director of product strategy for Savigent Software. “Whether our customers are looking for a brand new solution or to better leverage existing systems, we draw on a wide breadth of developed solutions to solve their business challenges.”
