Taking a Self-Healing Supply Chain Stance on day one at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference

The Self-Healing Supply Chain Register. Meet. Greet. That’s always a solid day one at any conference.

If you’re lucky (and not too jet lagged), you’ll sneak in an early session or two, and you might even find time for cocktail that evening.

To add a bit of extra zing to day one at this year’s Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference in Phoenix, AZ, Kinaxis announced the launch of the Self-Healing Supply Chain™ to improve supply chain performance and keep it operating in top health, automatically closing the gap between design and actual results.

Watch the teaser video below, and drop us a note to find out how you can put the Self-Healing Supply Chain to work for you.

Stay tuned for more on the Self-Healing Supply Chain on the blog in the days to come. In the meantime, here are a few highlights featuring what Kinaxis was up to on day one, along with a reminder to redeem your door drop for your pair of super comfy and totally cool Stance socks. Finally! A give away people will actually use!

Day one at Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference started, as such events do with registration — sponsored by Kinaxis. Lines were long, but they moved fast — because we’re all about allowing you to get to your meetings and sessions quicker (so you can ‘know sooner’), and we don’t believe in doing much waiting around (that’s the ‘acting faster’ part).

Kinaxis Product Manager Jennifer Bell was already attending sessions on day one, and makes a great follow for supply chain professionals near and far.

Later in the day, while our new CMO Jay Muelhoefer was arriving, our marketing team was organizing a rather daunting mountain of new Stance socks, adorning them with the Kinaxis stickers in preparation for Monday night’s door drop.

Just bring the Kinaxis door drop card (the one with all the socks on it) to the Kinaxis booth (401) to get your feet on the best pair of socks you’ll ever own.

Have a great Tuesday, and we’ll see you at the booth!
