WNS announces partnership with Kinaxis

Infotech Lead America: BPO major WNS announced its partnership with Kinaxis, a provider of RapidResponse, an enterprise cloud service for supply chain management and sales and operations planning.

WNS will leverage Kinaxis’ RapidResponse to provide platform-based BPO services and solutions across multiple supply chain management functions.

RapidResponse is the foundation on which many supply chain applications — S&OP, Master Planning & Scheduling, Capacity and Constraint Management, Inventory and Supply Management, Engineering Change Management, Demand Management, and Order Promise Management, can be rapidly deployed using a common data model and user interface, thus enabling WNS to provide seamless supply chain process solutions to their customers.

“Our clients are currently facing escalating risks and costs due to high demand-supply volatility and complex global supply chains. Streamlining planning and execution processes, and supporting applications across a distributed network of supply chain partners is something companies have been struggling to achieve,” said Keshav R Murugesh, group CEO, WNS.

This strategic partnership brings together Kinaxis’ transformational supply chain solutions and expertise with WNS’s BPO service excellence and deep domain knowledge in the Retail, CPG, Manufacturing and Electronics Industries.

Doug Colbeth, CEO of Kinaxis, said: “We believe the complementary nature of our technology with the WNS service portfolio offers a compelling value proposition that will provide WNS clients with breakthroughs in operations performance and corporate competitive advantage through supply chain excellence.”

RapidResponse, a single product that delivers the underlying planning, simulation and collaboration capabilities essential to making long-term and short-term demand and supply balancing decisions across the enterprise, enables WNS to help transform how clients manage their supply chain consistent with the challenges and realities of today’s business environment.
