Kinaxis ® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, announced today announced that the market’s leading supply chain management solution, Kinaxis RapidResponse® is available on Google Cloud and in the Marketplace.

RapidResponse supports key business processes such as demand and supply planning, integrated business planning, sales and operations planning (S&OP) and inventory management, and delivers end-to-end transparency with its control tower capabilities. Concurrent planning breaks down organizational silos, unifies disparate data under a single all-inclusive data model, and codifies business-wide trust through the continuous alignment of everyone and everything across a company’s end-to-end supply chain.

“We’re pleased the Kinaxis platform is now available on Google Cloud,” said Dai Vu, Managing Director, Cloud Marketplace & ISV GTM Initiatives at Google Cloud. “Customers can deploy Kinaxis via the Google Cloud Marketplace, helping quickly utilize Kinaxis’ supply chain management capabilities on Google Cloud’s trusted, global infrastructure.”
