October 29, 2019 – Reading, PA – MorganFranklin’s supply chain practice, formerly known as Plantensive, has been cited as a Representative Vendor for the following Gartner Market Guides*:

  • Market Guide for Supply Chain Planning BPO or BPaaS [Amber Salley, et al., Published on: July 29, 2019]. According to the report, “Outsourcing can improve demand and supply planning through outcome-driven objectives. Supply chain leaders who seek support with BPO or BPaaS projects should use this research to help identify third-party service providers that can perform supply chain planning activities.”
  • Market Guide for Supply Chain Strategy and Operations Consulting [Michael Dominy and Kamala Raman, Published on: July 23, 2019]. According to the report, “The supply chain strategy and operations consulting market is transforming as consulting firms shift their delivery models and large providers continue to acquire specialists. Supply chain leaders can use this Market Guide when searching for a supply chain strategy and/or operations consulting firm.”

“Most companies no longer tolerate approaches to strategy and operations consulting projects that involve months of fact-finding and workshops. Better access to data within client systems, greater availability of data across markets and industries, and improved analytical tools enable consulting firms to compress or automate elements of strategy and roadmap development.” This is a key finding from the Market Guide for Supply Chain Strategy and Operations Consulting.

Grant Lock, Managing Partner of Plantensive, said, “Our vision at Plantensive is to create clients for life by delivering excellence through our relationships and solutions. We never start a project with a blank page. We arrive with an operational framework and use that along with the combined vision and mission to create a blended roadmap. As a result, our value is immediately apparent. We are thrilled to be cited as a Representative Vendor by such a well-respected organization, like Gartner.”

*Plantensive is owned by Vaco. Vaco acquired MEBC Global in 2018, and this entity was re-branded as Plantensive.
