Kingston Selects to Improve Supply Chain Planning Capabilities with Blue Yonder
Global memory and storage solutions manufacturer to build an efficient, agile and responsive supply chain with Blue Yonder
HSINCHU, Taiwan, and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – June 7, 2023 – To improve its supply chain planning capabilities and customer satisfaction, Kingston Technology Far East Corp., a leading global manufacturer of memory and storage solutions, has selected to implement Blue Yonder’s SaaS-based supply planning solution.
Kingston designed a new type of memory module in the late 1980’s to fulfill a demand for memory that would serve to redefine industry standards for years to come. The company continues to innovate and currently supplies top-tier data centers, cloud providers and PC manufacturers, as well as companies developing the next trends in smart devices, with memory and storage solutions. Kingston was looking to optimize supply, enhance customer service levels, and improve asset utilization, so it turned to Blue Yonder.
By implementing Blue Yonder’s solution, Kingston will be able to:
- Carry out a comprehensive supply chain upgrade strategy with the supply planning solution as the core.
- Produce more accurate, insightful, and coordinated plans to streamline manufacturing and supply.
- Focus on organizational efficiency to help grow its business and expand production.
“We offer quality products that fuel the technology the world uses every day. We were seeking a supply chain solutions provider who could help us digitally transform our supply planning capabilities and Blue Yonder proved to have the capabilities we need. Working with Blue Yonder, we are looking forward to elevating the quality of our products, as well as the service and support to our customers, by gaining an end-to-end view and control of our supply chain to deliver today and into the future,” said Shane Clerkin, vice president, Contract Manufacturing, Kingston.
Blue Yonder’s supply planning solution will provide Kingston with a comprehensive view of its supply chain planning processes. Kingston will be able to balance global objectives for demand satisfaction, collaborate on planning scenarios in situations of material shortage, and use prescriptive recommendations to make accurate and faster decisions throughout the manufacturing network. This will help the company improve supply chain performance, minimizing stock-outs and maximizing inventory turns to ultimately improve the customer experience.

We are very pleased that Kingston has chosen us to help their business grow today and expand their future capabilities.
