Scope and Challenges

Extreme Networks, Inc., a global provider of open, software-driven solutions from the enterprise edge to the cloud with customers in more than 80 countries, has chosen Kinaxis to unify its view into the supply chain networks of the companies it acquired over a 12-month span. 

Outcome and Implications

Through the introduction of RapidResponse, Extreme can expect to reduce costs across its entire organization by improving the productivity of its planning workforce and giving them the ability to focus on more strategic business activities. For example, supply chain professionals across the organization will have more time to optimize inventory levels to reduce carrying costs, which in turn expedites service delivery to improve customer satisfaction.
