Customer Case Study Icon

We measure our success by our customer's success. At Kinaxis, we take great pride in delivering supply chain solutions that help our customers realize new business breakthroughs and tangible operations performance results.  Here are a few customer case study examples.

  • TrinityRail

    TrinityRail logo - KinaxisFaced with increasingly complex manufacturing, extended backlogs and independent business cycles, global railcar provider TrinityRail struggled to overcome manual processes based on Excel, and demand forecasts that continually missed the mark. By implementing Kinaxis RapidResponse, TrinityRail was able to get rid of operational forecasting altogether, creating a truly responsive supply chain as a result. 


  • Varian

    In its highly cyclical, build-to-order environment, Varian Semiconductor (now Applied Materials) required a response management solution that would help them not only satisfy customer demand in short order, but quickly and effectively respond to ever-present product and engineering changes, reduce excess and obsolete inventory levels, and avoid or address other potential performance impediments. Using RapidResponse’s what-if analysis capabilities, Varian has improved its inventory management and is better able to meet customer commitments.
