Baxter Planning Systems, the pioneer and recognized leader in inventory planning and optimization solutions, announced today that Nutanix, the leading provider of next-generation datacenter infrastructure solutions, has implemented its software and On-Demand Planning services. Baxter will provide Nutanix with supply chain management solutions that enable Nutanix to deliver 4-hour and next-day on-site hardware service for customers.
“As a fast-growing, start-up, it’s important that we succeed on every front, including customer service,” commented Bill Juhn, Manager, Global Logistics for Nutanix. “A critical element is planning service spares for a rapidly growing client base that requires 24x7x365 availability to run their businesses. Baxter’s end-to-end solution, including outsourced planning, ensures that we provide industry-leading services that match the caliber of products we offer.”
Through its Virtual Computing Platform, Nutanix web-scale infrastructure eliminates the need for costly and complex storage area networks by integrating high-performance storage and compute into one unified appliance. This revolutionary datacenter offering gives clients the flexibility to start small and easily grow cluster installations to handle large-scale server virtualization deployments, virtual desktop initiatives, test and development applications, big data projects, and more.
Nutanix paired Baxter’s integrated applications with On-Demand Planning, a service offering that provides experienced supply chain consultants to perform service parts planning, to keep pace with its rapid global expansion. Nutanix will also capitalize on Baxter’s Demand Source
Locator functionality to enable a common planning and part sourcing process that intelligently considers service level agreements (SLA), part availability, and part succession/chaining to identify the best site or alternate part to fill each service request.
Since their initial deployment in February, Nutanix has already opened additional forward stocking locations to keep parts near its growing installed base. Solutions from Baxter will help the company maintain an optimized service parts supply chain as adoption of Nutanix products continues to expand around the world.
