CHICAGO – March 29, 2022 – GAINS, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for optimizing supply chain performance, has been recognized as a Leader in this year’s Supply Chain Planning (SCP) Technology Matrix by Nucleus Research. The annual market research is a concise assessment of a solution’s operational value as determined by customer interviews, live product demonstrations, and analyst briefings.

“GAINS is honored to be part of Nucleus’ robust annual research of supply chain planning technologies,” said Bill Benton, Co-Founder of GAINS. “Their analysts spoke directly with GAINS customers in distribution, consumer goods, and manufacturing and learned how GAINS rapidly delivers value by automatically detecting and responding to changes, improving service levels, and reducing inventory and supply chain costs. They invested the time to learn first-hand how GAINS provides continuous value to customers new to GAINS or those who have used GAINS for more than a decade.”

As an SCP Technology Value Matrix Leader, GAINS was rated high by Nucleus for:

  • Offering a balance of usability and functionality
  • Delivering relatively advanced functionality across all core areas
  • Likely to deliver the best ROI
  • Continually investing in new features
