Kinaxis® is working with Deloitte Consulting to bring solutions to market to help organisations in the automotive, medical device (life sciences), and aerospace and defence industries realise the benefits of digital supply network transformation faster.
Aimed at helping companies accelerate their transition to a digital supply network, these solutions will be designed to enable faster decision-making with synchronised planning processes, improved productivity and profitability, and increased agility for addressing changing market needs while reducing deployment risks.
The joint solutions will leverage unique concurrent supply network planning technology from Kinaxis, layered with pre-configured templates based on Deloitte’s digital supply network experience specifically for the three target industries.
Managing director of supply chain and network operations at Deloitte Consulting Aamer Rehman said: “Companies that are striving to turn their supply networks into strategic assets are looking for business relationships which can deliver an end-to-end transformation spanning business, technology, and industry-specific best practices and processes. At the same time, they’re concerned about shortening the time to value and ensuring rapid adoption.
“The combination of Kinaxis and Deloitte brings together the required ingredients for successful supply chain transformation.”
Offering leader of supply chain and network operations at Deloitte Consulting Doug Gish said: “Operating successfully in today’s complex supply chain networks requires a new mindset. This initiative will further strengthen Deloitte’s alliance with Kinaxis as we deliver accelerated, long-range economic benefits to our customers in these three sectors.”
Helping customers lay the foundation of their digital journey, Deloitte has created Innovation Labs that showcase the joint solutions. Offering a unique approach to the traditional requirements-gathering phase for any new business initiative, the Innovation Labs provide an immersive experience that guides supply chain leaders through a series of simulated real-life scenarios. The simulation provides a first-hand opportunity to validate the value-hypothesis of integrated planning by demonstrating the impact of end-to-end visibility.
Chief revenue officer at Kinaxis Paul Carreiro said: “Strategic Alliances are a key component of the Kinaxis strategic growth strategy. What we are launching with Deloitte are innovative, faster-to-deploy solutions that will provide customers with greater end-to-end visibility and accelerate their time to value.
“We have seen great success working with Deloitte over the last few years. Through the extension of our collaboration, we’re bringing industry-tailored solutions to market that meet real business needs and give our joint customers powerful competitive advantages.”
