OTTAWA, ON, July 5, 2022 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, announced today that Planning.AI, unveiled in May at Kinexions '22, has won the 2022 Digital Innovation Award. Presented by Ventana Research, Kinaxis is honored in the category of Operations and Supply Chain, which highlights a technology vendor that best exemplifies innovation in technologies that support the operations or service of supply chains.

"Our awards highlight the best in innovation, and this year's winners are examples of how novel approaches using digital technologies are reshaping how businesses operate in ways that improve performance and achieve competitive advantage," said Robert Kugel, Senior VP, Research Director, Ventana Research. "Kinaxis' Planning.AI illustrates how the complex and often time-consuming task of supply chain planning can gain both speed and accuracy. It builds on Kinaxis' concurrent planning technique, which streamlines planning processes in normal times and fosters resiliency and agility in dealing with market discontinuities and disruptions."
