 Nimble Storage Deploys Kinaxis RapidResponse as its Global Supply Chain  Management Solution  Data Storage Company Greatly Improves Planning Cycle Times and Visibility in  Managing Service Parts Planning Business  OTTAWA, May 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Kinaxis®, provider of RapidResponse®, delivering  cloud-based SCM and S&OP applications, today announced that Nimble Storage, a  leading provider of flash-optimized hybrid storage solutions, has deployed  Kinaxis RapidResponse as its core planning and analytics engine.  Headquartered in San Jose, CA, Nimble Storage is a growing company with a  commitment to deliver the highest level of support and customer satisfaction  in the storage industry with around-the-clock resources and four-hour onsite  parts replacement service. With this mission in place, and its install base  getting larger, the company faced challenges getting visibility into its  global inventory hubs and depots to provide this critical customer support.  This required an investment in technology to support the expanding business  and operational needs.  The RapidResponse implementation was completed in February 2014 and has  offered immediate value to its growing user base. The return on investment  (ROI) for this deployment is expected to come from:            --  condensed planning cycle times;         --  reduced inventory levels;         --  faster and more reliable scenario planning; and         --  increased visibility to data for service parts planning.  "Nimble's world-class customer service agreements are incredibly important to  our business," said Stacey Cornelius, vice president of operations at Nimble  Storage. "As a past RapidResponse user, I know the breadth of capabilities and  the flexibility of the solution. With RapidResponse deployed, we have the  confidence we can keep up with our growing install base to achieve visibility  of inventory at hubs, depots and parts in transit. We have the ability to  quickly perform many "what-if" analyses we face on a daily basis and have  already reduced the time to make decisions, which positively impacts our  customer relationships."  "We are thrilled that RapidResponse is the chosen supply chain planning system  for Nimble Storage," said John Sicard, chief products officer for Kinaxis. "An  agile supply chain that can respond to unexpected change and volatile customer  demands necessitates a supporting supply chain software solution that is  equally as agile. As a single offering which solves multiple business  problems, we believe in RapidResponse as the technology enabler for making  effective demand and supply balancing decisions that drive corporate  performance and customer satisfaction improvements for the company."
