Kinaxis was founded in 1984 as Cadence Computer Corporation, to do supply-chain analysis of using custom mainframe computers, by three former Mitel engineers. The name was later changed to Carp Systems International , then Enterprise Planning Systems. In the mid 1990s, it changed its name to Webplan, and shifted from making hardware to providing software.

Recent history

In 2000, it led a venture round that raised $33 million. In 2005, it renamed itself Kinaxis, and started focusing on selling software by subscription, as opposed to collecting a one-time fee. In June 2014, it held an IPO on the Toronto Stock Exchange, raising a total of $100 million. Since then, its market capitalization has increased to $1.7 billion, as of August 2017. In 2022 they acquired MPO. MPO is Multi party Orchestration platform connecting Supply Chain actors.

Our mission is to be our customers’ trusted supply chain control tower helping to see, sense and respond with increased speed, agility, accuracy and confidence.

Our vision is to dissolve the boundaries between companies and their supply chains, creating a frictionless digital thread with predictive intelligence.
