The multienterprise platform for retailers evaluated for completeness of vision and ability to execute


BOSTON – May 14, 2020 – Bamboo Rose, the Boston-based multienterprise platform for retailers and brands, today announced its placement as Niche Player within Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Multienterprise Supply Chain Business Networks.


“We are thrilled to be included in this year’s Magic Quadrant,” said Bamboo Rose CEO, Sue Welch. “We’ve been a dedicated partner to retailers, brands, suppliers, and their business communities as they’ve leveraged our platform to drive mutual value. We think our inclusion in this year’s report validates Bamboo Rose’s strategic focus on these industries as they manage supply chain complexity and product innovation in fast-moving consumer markets.”


According to the report, “Multienterprise supply chain business networks (MESCBNs) are an essential technology component to a successful high-maturity, digital transformation. Executives must understand that their company needs to operate within such networks to stay competitive—in other words, minimize risk, increase efficiency, reduce cost and capitalize on opportunities.”[i]

The Bamboo Rose platform supports simultaneous collaboration with retail business partners while also providing business process applications that support product innovation, sourcing, product lifecycle management (PLM), order management, sales order management, logistics, and trade compliance.


“In recent years, we’ve seen clients leverage our multienterprise platform to reduce cycle times by four to six weeks, boost sales by more than ten percent, reduce safety stock by $50M or more, and cut operating expenses by up to 40 percent,” said Welch. “We’re now at a point in which multienterprise capability is as vital as ever to drive virtual collaboration and manage supply chain complexity, so we couldn’t be happier to be included in Gartner’s industry-leading coverage of this particular space.”
