This has been another exciting year for Kinaxis given the growing recognition of Response Management as a new category of software and a critical capability in today's hyper-competitive, consumer-driven marketplace
Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) October 11, 2007
Kinaxis™ Inc. the global leader in Response Management solutions that provide supply chain visibility and coordinated response to change for manufacturing and fulfillment organizations, today announced that it has been chosen for Manufacturing Business Technology Magazine's annual 40 Emerging Vendors listing.
Selected by Manufacturing Business Technology Magazine's editorial team, Kinaxis is one of 40 software and application vendors identified as leading entrepreneurial IT vendors in delivering some of the most innovative, productivity-enhancing solutions to the manufacturing, enterprise, and supply chain markets.
Meeting the listing's criteria, Kinaxis was recognized for its success in:
- identifying viable vertical industry niches and delivering the domain expertise needed to serve that industry
- formulating emerging software functionality for business or manufacturing process optimization
- distinguishing itself from the crowd of common software vendors through its software distribution model and innovative use of infrastructure technology
RapidResponse™ - Kinaxis' on-demand Response Management solution - combines multi-enterprise visibility, collaborative "what-if" analysis and rapid decision support to empower global brand owners and manufacturers to effectively respond to change. With access to real-time information from disparate enterprise systems and collaboration tools that extend across fulfillment networks and supply chains, front-line decision makers are able to respond quickly to constant changes in demand, supply and product, driving breakthroughs in operations performance and customer service.
This year, Kinaxis introduced RapidResponse 9, the next generation of its market-leading Response Management solution, which included enhancements and new innovations that propel improved responsiveness, collaboration and risk management for increasingly stressed global supply chains.
"This has been another exciting year for Kinaxis given the growing recognition of Response Management as a new category of software and a critical capability in today's hyper-competitive, consumer-driven marketplace," said Randy Littleson, vice president of marketing at Kinaxis. "As manufacturers shift from a production-centric to customer-centric model, companies are realizing they must adopt a strategic solution for managing volatility. Adoption of the RapidResponse solution by leading global brand owners, as well as 8 of the top 10 EMS providers in the world, validates that existing systems and solutions are not meeting the market need for dynamic flexibility. We are delighted that Manufacturing Business Technology also sees merit in the Kinaxis solution and has honored us with this type of formal recognition."
The 40 Emerging Vendors listing appears in the October issue of Manufacturing Business Technology.
