Forte Earns Gartner Distinction as “Cool Vendor”

Distinction, one in four, is for Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Services, 2013.

FORTE, Mason, OH, the design-build pioneer of the supply chain distribution sector, has been named to the “Cool Vendors in Supply Chain Services, 2013” list by Gartner Inc., an information technology research and advisory company. FORTE is one of only four companies to be recognized this year.

According to Gartner, “Supply chain service providers are combining software, highly skilled employees and enabling technologies, such as cloud computing and analytics, to deliver capabilities that augment existing supply chain organizations and help them minimize or avoid capital expenditures.”

“We are honored to be named by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Supply Chain Services,” said Tom Rentschler, vice president, sales and marketing. “FORTE prides itself on its ability to continually innovate. For example, our WCS 2.0 Smart Warehouse Suite helps provide customers with real-time tracking information and the actionable data they need to deliver optimal performance throughout their entire distribution network.”
