Körber again positioned as a Leader in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Manufacturing Execution Systems

Lüneburg, Germany, 5 July 2022. Körber was recognized as a Leader for the second consecutive year in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for its leading Werum PAS-X MES Suite for pharma, biotech and cell & gene. 

Each year Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executive and their teams, evaluates software providers across the MES landscape on the basis of a demanding set of evaluation criteria. 

“We are delighted to have received this recognition from Gartner for the second year in a row”, says Jens Woehlbier, CEO Software, Körber Business Area Pharma. "Körber was placed furthest to the right for Completeness of Vision, and, in our opinion, it is because we have simply reinvented PAS-X MES. Driven by cloud technologies and our ready-to-run implementation, PAS-X MES can be implemented quickly and easily.” Customers can choose how to deploy the market-leading system – in their own data center, in the cloud or as fully managed "Software as a Service". In any case, customers benefit from reduced time to market and lower total cost of ownership.

Körber has over 1,200 Werum PAS-X MES installations at 340 production sites worldwide and consistently high customer satisfaction rates. “We have customers who have been with us for decades and several clients already running in Cloud and PAS-X as a Service.", says Jan-Henrik Dieckert, Executive Vice President Global Sales & Marketing Software, Körber Business Area Pharma. “In July, we will launch our latest PAS-X MES 3.3 version, which will further drive the transformation of MES through Cloud and SaaS operations. We are putting additional emphasis on intelligence and analytics products to ensure customers get the most out of their manufacturing data to drive efficiencies – for example with PAS-X Data Access to provide curated data or our collaborative data analytics platform PAS-X Savvy”, adds Jan-Henrik Dieckert. 

A Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors.
