Many i2 customers are re-evaluating their business and technology needs
Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
Kinaxis™ Inc. today announced an incentive program to current i2 customers who may be concerned with the general uncertainty resulting from the recent acquisition of i2, in particular as it relates to their future product investment roadmaps.
The offer waives standard ERP integration fees for any i2 customers that decide to adopt the highly secure and robust Kinaxis on-demand RapidResponse service, which empowers multi-enterprise manufacturers with the integrated demand-supply planning, monitoring, and collaborative response capabilities required in today's complex and dynamic world.
"Many i2 customers are re-evaluating their business and technology needs," says Randy Littleson, vice president of marketing, Kinaxis. "We're offering them a proven solution that will not only provide the comfort of a long-term product development commitment, but will provide added benefit and broader value than their current solution."
Unlike other initiatives (often named safe passage programs or similar), that require another lengthy and costly deployment and rollout project, Kinaxis is enabling companies to take advantage of expanded supply chain management capabilities, and the resulting operational benefits, through a cost-effective and low-risk on-demand service and a rapid and free deployment.
Differentiating itself in the marketplace, Kinaxis RapidResponse offers a one-to-many value proposition, providing a single integrated solution that solves a variety of supply chain problems and that can replace, with added functionality, the following seven i2 modules:
- Sales & Operations Management,
- Demand Manager,
- Demand Planner,
- Supply Chain Planner,
- Demand Fulfillment,
- Collaborative Supply Execution,
- Supply Chain Visibility
