Open Sky Group Recognized in Gartner Guide as Specialty Consulting Firm


Gartner has recognized Open Sky Group as a supply chain execution – specialty consulting firm.

Open Sky Group, a global specialist for implementing JDA Software solutions, announces today that the research and advisory team at Gartner, Inc. has recognized and included Open Sky Group as a supply chain execution – specialty consulting firm in Gartner’s May 2018 Warehousing & Fulfillment Vendor Guide. Gartner developed the guide to help supply chain and IT leaders use the research to help develop a comprehensive logistics technology portfolio strategy.

“It’s exciting to be recognized by Gartner as a supply chain execution – specialty consulting firm and add that to our growing list of accomplishments,” says Curt Sardeson of Open Sky Group. “Our rapid implementation methodology of disciplined agility means quicker installation, reduced modifications and faster return on investment for WMS and Labour upgrades and implementations. We help clients take full advantage of the new functionality, enhanced configurability, web-based interface and real-time dashboards available in the newest software versions.”

“In addition to changing the paradigm for how supply chain software is implemented, we are also innovating through our approach of empowering clients to conduct future upgrades themselves. We’ve made these innovations because we thoroughly understand the imperative to reduce IT operating and support spend for companies. Notably, Open Sky Group’s clients are seeing an average of 30% maintenance cost savings when they upgrade to the newest versions of JDA Warehouse Management and JDA Warehouse Labour Management solutions,” says Chad Kramlich of Open Sky Group.
