Supply chain performance monitoring for pharmaceutical companies

Increasing cost pressures, growing customer expectations, unexpected threats and expanding ecosystems all add to the complexity and volatility global organisations face every day. But today’s planning reality leaves room for a lot of uncertainty thanks to siloed data, processes and cumbersome, disconnected systems.

Kinaxis solves complex business problems in easy-to-understand ways, combining human and machine intelligence to help plan for high supply chain performance, monitoring progress to identify risks and opportunities while helping clients quickly respond to any disconnects as they occur.

Supply chain planning services for medical networks

Kinaxis RapidResponse® employs a unique concurrent planning technique across multiple areas of the supply chain.

The company delivers a supply chain that’s completely connected and in-sync. Concurrent planning bridges the gap between planning and execution by continuously balancing the supply chain network from end-to-end.

Using concurrent planning, a planner can make a change and have its impact immediately visible to everyone else across the supply chain.

Integrated supply chain planning platform

From sales and operations planning (S&OP) to demand, supply, inventory and capacity, RapidResponse supports operations as required thanks to Kinaxis’s Cloud-based integrated supply chain planning platform.

Easily scalable, RapidResponse delivers the capabilities that organisations need to grow and succeed, all without custom code or bolted-on modules.

The platform’s responsive, people-first design means RapidResponse works on any device, allowing planners to make critical decisions on the go.

Capacity Planning

When it comes to capacity planning, Kinaxis helps supply chains balance customer satisfaction with cost and available inventory, leveraging underused assets while minimising inventory overload.

Demand Planning

When plans don’t align with reality, cost and customer satisfaction takes a hit. And when changes do happen, siloed business functions can prevent you from seeing fallout to your demand plans until it’s too late.

Inventory Planning

Inventory is the single largest asset on your company’s balance sheet. How you plan and manage your inventory can have a huge impact on your bottom line.

Supply Planning

Late shipments, working from the wrong plans, the inability to see the impact of demand changes: as a supply chain planner, everyone else’s problems suddenly become your own, leaving it up to you to profitably align supply with demand.

Sales and Operations Planning

S&OP processes shouldn’t involve wrestling with disparate spreadsheets, take weeks to execute or focus solely on satisfying individual needs.

Machine Learning

When planning assumptions don’t reflect the reality of what’s actually happening in your supply chain, metrics like revenue-at-risk, customer satisfaction and inventory costs suffer.

A Supply Chain Planning: Everything From Product Expirations to Patent Cliffs

Supply chains in the life sciences sector are about as complex as they come. As biomedical advancements trigger a continuous stream of new product introductions, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the industry constantly reshape the competitive landscape while governments at all levels release new regulations. The promise of tenders and perils of patent cliffs are ever-present. Taken in one dose, profitability and productivity can be put at serious risk.
