OTTAWA, ON, June 23, 2022 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, has been selected by Carlsberg to create a harmonized planning process, and improve its commercial agility.  

Carlsberg Group is an international brewer based in Copenhagen, Denmark, offering a portfolio of beer and other beverage brands. The company recognized the need for end-to-end planning across its supply chain. By selecting Kinaxis' RapidResponse® concurrent planning platform, Carlsberg will have the ability to remove disparate systems and spreadsheets and gain more valuable insight, remove risks, and improve fast decision making into its supply chain to better serve its customers.

"We chose Kinaxis because we wanted a solution that was going to be able to deliver flexibility and agility," said Andrea Takacs, VP of Customer Supply Chain at Carlsberg. "The RapidResponse platform gives us the ability to leverage the accuracy of a digital platform while empowering our planners by removing repetitive and manual tasks to let them focus their skills on improving operations and customer service."

Carlsberg will leverage the Kinaxis RapidResponse suite of applications to increase accuracy within demand planning and inventory management across all of its markets and the agility to adapt to distribution in real time. Carlsberg will also work with a Kinaxis System Integrator to enhance value by identifying actionable insights.

"Through working with consumer product businesses, we've learned that everybody benefits from a supply chain that removes silos and drives end-to-end transparency. Planners become more agile and accurate, and customers become confident that their favourite products will be there when they want them," said John Sicard, CEO at Kinaxis. "We are pleased to welcome Carlsberg to our growing consumer products community."
