Austin, TX, United States, 2012/11/13 - Baxter Planning System's new VP of Product Marketing discusses next-generation products for the company, which offers Prophet by Baxter™, a Cloud-based software for inventory planning in the service parts, high tech and healthcare industries.
Baxter Planning Systems is pleased to announce it has selected Phillip Kennedy as Vice President of Product Management. Kennedy has more than nine years of experience as a product manager and a demonstrated ability to profitably launch new, innovative products in the enterprise software market.
Kennedy joins Baxter’s new President, Brock Epperly, appointed in September to lead the company, which provides Cloud-based software and service solutions for inventory planning across complex, global supply chains in the service parts, high tech and healthcare industries.
“Baxter is embarking on an ambitious strategy of accelerated growth,” said Baxter President Brock Epperly. “Mr. Kennedy stood out as someone who can substantially grow install base around cloud-based software products. He will be instrumental in helping us refine our next-generation product offerings.”
Before joining Baxter, Kennedy was Vice President of Product Management at Austin-based Inreach Continuing Education, a provider of online education for professionals, where he grew the company’s install base by 35 percent with new products for the healthcare market. Prior to that, he grew revenue by 26 percent as Senior Product Manager for Everest Software, a business management software company in Dulles, Virginia.
“Baxter already has a superior product in Prophet by Baxter™,” said Kennedy. “The potential exists to transform inventory management across several untapped industries that could benefit from precision planning systems, but as yet have not been offered an effective product.”
