Pioneers in revolutionizing supply chain orchestration

Founded and headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, we’ve been revolutionizing supply chain innovation for more than three decades. Our rich history has led to numerous patents, a one-of-a-kind database and platform built from the ground up with planning in mind, and deep supply chain domain expertise.

1984
Launches first-ever in-memory MRP engine
Kinaxis (then known as Cadence Computer Corporation) is founded, launching the first-ever in-memory planning engine, delivering unheard of speed for material requirements planning (MRP) on our custom hardware – cutting run times from days to minutes.
1996
Creates unprecedented scenario capabilities
Shifting focus from hardware to software, Kinaxis (then known as Webplan) releases the world’s first advanced supply chain planning platform, featuring unprecedented versioning and scenario creation capabilities, allowing multiple planners to run supply chain analysis concurrently.
2005
Originates cloud-based SCP
A new era of supply chain planning (SCP) begins when Kinaxis becomes the first vendor to provide cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) supply chain planning, finally giving companies flexible deployment options with lower capital spending.
2014
Goes public
After three decades of continued growth, Kinaxis opts to become a public company and starts trading on June 10, 2014.
2019
Extends platform for third-party development
Opening up our platform to third-party developers, Kinaxis becomes the first supply chain planning company to provide industry-proven applications, plus the ability to create your own, all powered by an extensible, cloud-based, concurrent planning platform.
2020
Transforms AI for supply chains
Continuing our rich history of pioneering innovation and technology, Kinaxis becomes the only company to take AI beyond standard use cases, using it to solve real-world problems for both supply and demand planning.
2022
Expands concurrency to last mile execution
With its acquisition of MPO, Kinaxis expanded concurrency beyond supply chain planning to last mile execution across customers, suppliers and the entire multi-enterprise business network.
