Cherwell Software announced today it has been listed as a “Champion” in Info-Tech Research Group’s Vendor Landscape for Enterprise Service Desk Software. Cherwell had the highest composite score among twelve vendors evaluated on product attributes including features, usability, architecture, and affordability, as well as on vendor characteristics such as viability, strategy, reach, and channel. Notably, Cherwell scored significantly higher overall than larger, more entrenched market incumbents.
Info-Tech Research Group is the world’s fastest growing information technology research and advisory company, serving over 30,000 IT professionals. Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports recognize outstanding vendors in the technology marketplace. Assessing vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise, Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscapes pay tribute to the contribution of exceptional vendors in a particular category.
Cherwell’s position in the Info-Tech report reflects the company’s growing success and increasing market presence within the IT service management (ITSM) landscape due to its innovative, highly configurable platform and its flexible, all-inclusive licensing model.
According to the Info-Tech report, “Cherwell is an emerging competitor to large enterprise vendors, offering extensive functionality at a lower cost. Cherwell offers a codeless design architecture, making its solution fully configurable and able to easily integrate with third-party applications without needing to write or modify code.”
The accolade adds to a growing list of recent recognition of Cherwell’s vendor strength, and comes on the heels of a $50 million investment from KKR, a global investment firm, which is expected to fuel further growth for Cherwell by accelerating research and development efforts and expanding global operations.
Other recent acknowledgements of Cherwell’s market momentum include:
- Recognized as the only “Challenger” to market leaders in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for IT Service Support Management (ITSSM) Tools
