We are pleased to announce to our global-based Supply Chain Matters readership audience that Kinaxis will be a Sustained sponsor of this independent thought leadership blog in 2018.

Kinaxis was one of the very first sponsors of this blog upon our founding in 2008, and once-again, we look forward to a continuing relationship during the coming year.  Kinaxis sponsorship of Supply Chain matters blog

With origins that date back to 1984, and with its founding in 1995, Kinaxis and its flagship RapidResponse supply chain, and now concurrent planning software application capabilities have been adopted by industry-leading companies across multiple industry verticals. The company’s marketing byline: “Kinaxis helps companies around the world to revolutionize their supply chain” planning has significant meaning.

Kinaxis delivers a collection of highly-configurable Cloud-based S&OP and supply chain applications which are at the very heart of supply chain planning and decision making for manufacturing companies with complex supply chains and volatile business environments. What differentiates this provider’s RapidResponse response planning suite are the broad combination of planning support capabilities supporting role-based collaboration, what-if analysis and scenario simulation and supply chain analytics. The application is coupled to an extensible user-centric data and automated workflow model designed to address complex business planning.

In January, Kinaxis announced the latest customer scheduled to deploy RapidResponse, that being global automotive manufacturer Toyota Motor Corporation, which is planning to replace existing manual planning systems to unify the company’s global supply and demand planning among its sales and production divisions. In addition to Toyota, Kinaxis’s presence in global automotive industry manufacturers also includes Ford Motor and Nissan Motors.

In early March, Kinaxis announced the addition of semiconductor technologies manufacturer Power Integrations as a deployment customer. In late March, Kinaxis introduced enterprise software industry veteran Jay Muelhoefer as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer lo expand strategies to elevate the Kinaxis brand and vision of supply chain digital transformation.

As part of the 2017 sponsorship arrangement, Supply Chain Matters featured market education series focused on future capabilities in concurrent planning.

For the remainder of 2018, this Editor will again provide a series of thought leadership perspectives on the changing landscapes of supply chain concurrent planning and digital transformation.
