Kinaxis ® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, announced today that Confluent Medical Technologies has selected Kinaxis to digitize and introduce advanced supply chain planning capability for greater agility to demand changes, planning accuracy and inventory management.

Confluent Medical Technologies is a global leader and single-source solution for contract manufacturing, supporting the design, development and manufacturing of life-saving implants, minimally invasive delivery systems and medical devices used in challenging applications. Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., Confluent operates eight sites around the globe. The company will use the Kinaxis RapidResponse® platform to gain full transparency across its entire supply chain, helping it to better manage disruption and make smarter decisions, faster.

“We work with customers to move ideas from prototype to high-volume production for products that can help people all over the world,” said Jeffrey McCoun, Confluent Vice President of Global Supply Chain. “Remaining agile to global disruption while being able to plan accurately on a large scale, is important for us as a company and our customers. Kinaxis’ platform aligned with our businesses needs and we are excited to work with them on our digital supply chain transformation.”

With Kinaxis, Confluent will have complete transparency of its supply chain, the ability to run multiple simulations and collaborate in real-time and leverage a full suite of applications to give the agility and flexibility needed to react to market volatility and changes in demand. Confluent joins a growing life sciences network within Kinaxis.

“Getting the right products into the hands of patients when they need them and keeping up with regulations, life sciences supply chains are about as complex as they come,” said John Sicard, Kinaxis CEO. “That makes end-to-end coordination and orchestration vital. We are excited to work with Confluent to help them reach all of their supply chain goals.”
