PRG conducts our annual software users survey to gain a better understanding of the current supply chain software market and to identify pertinent technology trends that may affect the logistics and transportation community. The results of this year’s study are based on the feedback provided by 280 qualified readers of Logistics Management.

Specific areas of evaluation among survey respondents include types of software currently used and planned for purchase; annual software expenditures; stage in the software buying process; reasons for consideration of supply chain solution software; number of software packages and vendors used by company; and expected timeframe for payback on purchases of supply chain software.

Over the next few pages we’ll look at the results of the survey and hear what top analysts are saying about the findings.
