- Private companies can manually and confidentially enter their metrics into the system to set up comparisons.

- With a few clicks of the mouse, companies can create customized benchmark reports and can elect to receive dashboard results directly via email on a monthly basis.

What's the value?

- Get meaningful benchmark results quickly, easily and at no-charge.

- Understand how other organizations are performing on the metrics that mean the most to you.

- Identify performance improvement areas for your business.

- Track short-term and long-term performance trends for your peers, customers and suppliers.

What does John say about it?

John Sicard, EVP, marketing, development and service operations, Kinaxis:

We hope individuals will take advantage of this valuable tool to empower their supply chain performance."

- "This service represents the investment our Company is willing to put forth to ensure every registered member of our growing Supply Chain Expert Community receives a valuable incentive for their interest and participation."
