PwC named  a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Manufacturing Supply Chain Planning Business Process Outsourcing and IT Integration

PwC has been named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Manufacturing Supply Chain Planning Business Process Outsourcing and IT Integration. Using the IDC MarketScape Model, IDC examined 13 vendors. Firms studied were evaluated on two primary elements of focus when advising clients: forward looking strategy, both in terms of goals and direction, and currently held capabilities.

The IDC MarketScape report notes, “For supply chain planning, its employee mix, with 60% being functionally focused, helps give the company an advantage relative to competitors centred on function first.” “The company is known for having an intense focus on delivering results and ensuring results are realized.”

Robert Giacobbe, Partner and Industrial Products Lead, said, “We are delighted to be recognised in this IDC MarketScape for our worldwide manufacturing supply chain planning business process outsourcing and IT integration. In a global marketplace, we endeavour to ensure we are providing our clients with enduring solutions that will help them meet the challenges of the marketplace and allow them to reach their goals.”
