The Challenge and Benefit
While Vizio’s products are high-tech, its legacy supply chain planning tools weren’t quite so sophisticated. Different business divisions used different tools, trapping information in silos. Interactions and interdependencies were largely invisible. Changes in one area required manual adjustments to others. Seeing the full picture of supply and demand was virtually impossible.
Kinaxis RapidResponse provided exactly the concurrent planning capabilities Vizio wanted, allowing users to view, plan for and integrate multiple business functions through a single customizable platform.
