Based on end-user reviews and ratings of over 280 Retail Management products, Software Advice included 24 top software products in its FrontRunners Quadrant, recognizing Cegid as one of only 6 leaders for Yourcegid Retail.
NEW YORK, NY, USA (August 3rd, 2017) – Cegid, a leading player in the digital transformation of companies and a global provider of cloud services and software, announced today that it has been recognized as a Leader for Yourcegid Retail on Software Advice’s 2017 FrontRunners Quadrant for Retail Software. The Leaders Quadrant includes vendors with “an all-around strong product. They offer a wide range of functionality to a wide range of customers.”
The FrontRunners quadrant, powered by Gartner Methodology, provides a data-driven assessment of products in a particular software category to determine which ones offer the best capability and value for small businesses. It is designed to assist small business leaders in making a software purchase.
An example of one of these reviews is feedback left by Christopher Inouye, Director of Retail, Baltimore Ravens:
“Overall the Cegid retail software solution is very user friendly and easy to use. Once the software was configured to our needs, it became a real asset for my account. I was able to reduce my labor costs and increase profits by using the software’s auto replenishment functionality. This software package has a lot to offer and each year we learn more about it. The additional things we learn, we put to use and our efficiency increases each year as we grow with the software.”
“In this age of online reviews and ratings, our first moment of truth with prospective clients is online,” says Sylvain Jauze, Director of International Operations, Cegid. “This is why we’re honored to be recognized by our customers. The feedback our clients share online not only validates what we bring to the retail industry, but it also helps retailers to cut through the noise when searching for the right software partner.”
