The results of Logistics Management’s Annual Software Users Survey over the past few years revealed that economic woes and corporate cutbacks suppressed reader spending in 2009-2010. However, the results of our 2012 study are in, and it seems as if supply chain software spending is back to “normal” after several years of backpedaling.

"Pre-2011 there was a lot of uncertainty in the market and companies were really holding back on investments," says Belinda Griffin-Cryan, global supply chain executive program manager at Capgemini Consulting. “The environment started to improve last year because a lot of companies just couldn’t wait any longer to purchase or upgrade their supply chain software.”

According Griffin-Cryan, as well as the results of our latest study conducted by Peerless Research Group (PRG), the initial rush of investment that was seen in early 2011 has since calmed; however, spending has certainly stabilized as we roll into 2012.
