OTTAWA, Feb. 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the leader in empowering people to make confident supply chain decisions, today announced that H. Lundbeck A/S has selected Kinaxis RapidResponse® to strengthen its planning capabilities and improve end-to-end visibility of its supply chain.

Lundbeck selected the Kinaxis RapidResponse platform, unique concurrent planning technique and a suite of applications. Kinaxis, in partnership with Syncronic, a Denmark-based provider of supply chain advisory, design, implementation and integration services, will help to connect Lundbeck's supply chain. The result will be improved visibility and planning capabilities giving everyone in the network access to the same data set and collaboration tools for what-next scenario planning and the ability to see the effect of changes throughout the supply chain immediately.

"We are excited to have earned the trust of Lundbeck to help them manage their supply chain planning," said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis. "Working together, we will help Lundbeck better monitor, plan and respond to changes across their supply chain, giving them the agility and speed needed to adapt and make changes in time to make a difference."

From keeping up with regulations to product expiry to integrating mergers and acquisitions, life science supply chains are as about as complex as they come. Kinaxis helps these companies to synchronize their supply chain functions to more effectively manage products on a lot-for-lot basis and use attribute-based planning to incorporate complex planning rules. Additionally, with customizable product expiry monitoring, supply chain teams are alerted when action on inventory is required to maximize customer service and ensure expiry dates are not surpassed, minimizing extra cost.
