When it comes to learning about, understanding or evaluating the latest tools and technology, hearing from your peers about their experiences and the results they have achieved is priceless.
 
With that in mind, we recently interviewed a few of our customers about how they use Kinaxis RapidResponse and some common themes emerged. Here are video excerpts on the top 5 topics (because you know that we love our lists!).  With each clip being under 2 minutes, you can get quick and to-the-point accounts of the value customers like Anritsu, Avaya, Celestica, Qualcomm, Teradyne and Schneider Electric are seeing from our supply chain management applications.

#1  Sense and Respond

Kinaxis customers have not only accepted, but have actually embraced the fact that their forecasts will never be entirely accurate. With that recognition, focus is shifting from building a better plan, to building a better response.  In these clips, customers speak to the ability to get the right data, make informed risk decisions, incorporate human judgment, perform quick scenario analysis and create agile processes - all of which are key components to building a better “sense and respond” competency.

#2 End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility and Orchestration

Yes, visibility is probably one of the industry’s most overused terms, but examine what it really means for RapidResponse customers...and then ask yourself, what could it mean to you?

#3 What-if Scenarios

Ah… the secret sauce of RapidResponse! The power of scenario simulations - which is the ability to instantly model and understand the impact of anything at anytime - is not lost on these customers. Hear first-hand how scenario simulations are being used across business processes (strategic to tactical) to enable new ways of analyzing situations and making decisions in the organization.
