GMC Software positioned highest for ability to execute and furthest for completeness of vision in Leaders quadrant
GMC Software, a leader in customer communications management, today announced the company has been named a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Customer Communications Management Software, positioned highest for both ability to execute and furthest for completeness of vision. The report evaluated 15 vendors from around the globe that met the inclusion criteria.
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant defines Leaders: “In terms of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision, Leaders are doing well and are prepared for the future with a clear vision. They have strong channel partners and a presence in multiple regions; they achieve consistent financial performance; and they offer broad platform support and good customer support. In addition, they dominate in one or more technologies or vertical markets. Leaders are aware of the ecosystem in which their offerings need to fit.”
The criteria used to evaluate vendors are “ability to execute,” defined as how well a provider sells and supports its CCM products and services on a global basis; and “completeness of vision,” which focuses on potential. Gartner’s report reveals that a provider “with superior vision anticipates, directs and initiates market trends—particularly if it integrates its vision for a broad range of areas—and capitalizes on product and service development.”
Additionally, Gartner’s report states, “Part of our assessment involves looking at how well each provider understands enterprises' changing requirements for CCM, including the movement toward more interactive and on-demand capabilities as well as multichannel versus print output. We also assess how well the provider is anticipating or planning to address market trends such as cloud delivery options and the increased use of analytics, social and mobile technologies.”
