2020 changed everything: the way we interact with each other, the way we work, the products we buy. How can companies plan for a future that’s still so unknown? Cash flow is unpredictable. Teams are stretched. Competition is mounting. Standing still is not an option.
But too many companies are facing down volatility with tools that were designed for a simpler time, like control towers that promise visibility and insights but only use stale and static data to do so. Little more than glorified business intelligence software, these antiquated control towers don’t recalculate in real-time, can’t cope with scenario exploration and fail to foster quick collaboration across teams. The end result is a control tower that doesn’t actually give you any control.
Kinaxis is about to change all that.
Introducing the Kinaxis Command & Control Center
The way you plan and execute is about to change forever. Unveiled at Kinexions ’20, our annual supply chain innovators conference, the new Kinaxis Command & Control Center makes it easy to anticipate and respond to what’s coming your way and take intelligent and increasingly automated control over your operations from the C-suite to the production line. Confidently manage risk. Seize opportunities. Cope with escalating volatility.
Eliminating volatility in your supply chain is impossible. Managing it shouldn’t be.
