OTTAWA — Kinaxis® Inc. announced on Feb. 25 that it had been selected by Cyient, a global engineering, manufacturing, and digital technology solutions company to lead their digital supply chain transformation. Cyient will take advantage of RapidStart, the Kinaxis rapid deployment process to accelerate time to value.

India-based Cyient helps clients across various industries to design, build, operate and maintain their products and services. With a complex supply chain that supports both make-to-order and make-to-stock products, Cyient needed a planning solution that integrates all its supply chain data into a single platform, including its SAP ERP, providing transparency and agility across its organization.

“As the high-tech market marches toward Industry 4.0, our partnership with Kinaxis will help us achieve our digital transformation goals. Kinaxis is an established leader in supply chain planning with expertise in electronics and industrial manufacturing and a unique concurrent planning technique that will allow us to automate the everyday tasks and free up our planners to respond to disruptions and change faster and deliver even greater service to our customers,” said Rick Palm, VP – Supply Chain, Cyient DLM.

Cyient will leverage Kinaxis RapidResponse® and concurrent planning to balance its supply and demand planning and help to manage inventory by minimizing excess and obsolete products. This will enable Cyient to enhance its customer service, shortening the time it takes to respond to change. It will also provide the company with a planning platform that can scale with Cyient as the company continues to grow.

“Transparency and concurrency not only give manufacturers visibility into what is happening in the supply chain, they offer a window into the impact of changes and how best to respond to them instantly,” said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis. “We welcome Cyient into our large, distinguished community of high tech and industrial manufacturing customers. We look forward to getting them up and running quickly with our RapidStart deployment and building a supply chain foundation that will give them the transparency, resiliency and agility to drive increased customer satisfaction.”
