For companies interested in comparing their supply chain performance against multiple companies and across various metrics, Kinaxis has launched a new Benchmarking Service.
The service is available at no cost, to any registered member of the free Supply Chain Expert Community.
"In this widely competitive and volatile economy, understanding how you are performing against others can be a critical piece of intelligence. While this type of information may be generally available, the process to compile it, calculate the metrics and graph it out is extensive; we offer a ready-to-view service that can provide immediate insight," explains John Sicard, EVP, Kinaxis.
The service can provide a competitive comparison against a specific list of companies selected from an database of more than 15,000 public companies in the manufacturing sectors.
It can rank a company on any of 24 standard financial and operational metrics, such as cash-to-cash, inventory turns, gross margin and return on invested capital.
The service an also identify performance improvement areas as well as track short-term and long-term performance trends for peers, customers and suppliers.
