Creation Technologies Finalizes Global Deployment of Kinaxis Rapid Response

Global electronics manufacturer gaining end-to-end visibility to improve customer response times


October 22, 2019

Creation Technologies LLC has teamed up with Kinaxis, a leader in empowering people to make confident supply chain decisions, to gain end-to-end visibility of its $500M+ global supply chain, generate fast and accurate what-next planning scenarios and optimize and manage inventories. With a company-wide deployment of Kinaxis RapidResponse® live in all nine business units, Creation Technologies has built improvements across all functions in customer response times and supplier constraint visibility.

“It is critical to our success to be able to generate fast and accurate supply and demand planning scenarios to provide timely responses to our customers’ requests for product deliveries,” said Ana Cantu, Executive VP Supply Chain. “With Kinaxis we can do that and more. With everyone looking at the same data, we now spend our time on things that matter the most, analysis and decisions, instead of gathering and challenging data. We’re able to be even better business partners to our customers by passing on additional insights and proposing new solutions that best fit their business needs.”

A global provider of end-to-end solutions for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Creation helps customers accelerate time-to-market, reduce operating costs and grow revenues. Creation is using Kinaxis to provide a scalable solution that brings together data from nine manufacturing locations, two design centers, a prototyping center and its Oracle enterprise resource planning system (ERP). Kinaxis will also help Creation to standardize its practices across all operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and China. Additionally, Creation has been rapidly analyzing the impact of supply and demand changes along the entire supply chain, mitigating risk to its growing inventory, increasing revenue realization, automating communications and improving customer and supplier response times.

“With hundreds of customers and thousands of inputs flowing through its supply chain, Creation Technologies needed a solution that allowed them to stay flexible as customer demands evolve, and help to improve responsiveness to customers and suppliers,” said John Sicard, CEO of Kinaxis. “The agile Kinaxis planning experience ensures companies like Creation use holistic data to evaluate what-next scenarios, which leads to confident decision-making. We are pleased to see Creation continue to expand its use of Kinaxis across its organization.”
