Response management provider selected for Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies’ annual list of top performers.

We value our customer partnerships and take great pride in helping make our customers successful

For a third consecutive year, Kinaxis™ Inc., a provider of an on-demand Response Management service, is included in Global Logistics & Supply Chain Strategies’ (GLSCS) 100 Great Supply Chain Partners List.

The 2006 GLSCS Top 100 recognizes vendors or service providers who have been nominated by their customers and whose technology solutions have made a significant impact on a company’s supply chain efficiency in recent years.

The Kinaxis nomination cited success in providing the supply chain visibility and flexibility required by a manufacturer of semiconductor capital equipment to quickly respond to a constant stream of changes to build plans and effectively manage the resulting impact on operations. The Kinaxis Response Management solution, RapidResponse™, started giving immediate payback upon deployment by helping the company satisfy volatile customer demand in short order, better manage ever-present product and engineering changes, and reduce excess & obsolete (E&O) inventory levels. The company has reduced the time it takes to do "what-if" analysis of changes to build plans from hours/days to only minutes driving an unprecedented ability for fast and intelligent response. RapidResponse enables the company to meet customer commitments without sacrificing quality or operational performance, which is paramount to their long-term business success.

“We value our customer partnerships and take great pride in helping make our customers successful,” said Randy Littleson, vice president of marketing at Kinaxis. “As such, we are honored to receive this customer-endorsed recognition for a third straight year. We believe this distinction speaks volumes to the acknowledgment and acceptance of Response Management solutions as a strategic imperative for today’s distributed manufacturing environment.”

The “100 Great Supply Chain Partner” list, along with the Kinaxis case-study nomination, appears in the June/July 2006 issue of the publication.
