Fountain Valley, CA & Atlanta, GA — November 1, 2017 — Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced a collaboration with Logility to deploy its supply chain planning software for HyperX™, the gaming division of Kingston®. Since the first gaming headset launch in 2014, the HyperX product family has rapidly expanded to keyboards, gaming mice and mouse pads. In three short years, HyperX has shipped over 3 million gaming headsets which sparked the need to tightly manage and monitor the HyperX supply chain as the business has scaled.
To support this growth, HyperX began a supply chain transformation initiative to replace legacy solutions and spreadsheets with advanced software from Logility, a leader in Gartner's May 2017 Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation. Kingston is using the award–winning Logility Voyager Solutions™ to enhance visibility across the global supply chain which synchronizes the planning process to boost efficiency and align inventory with customer service goals. The scalable supply chain planning platform allows HyperX to set and track inventory targets to streamline the replenishment cycle and ensure the right products are available when the consumer is ready to purchase.
"Logility Voyager Solutions helps HyperX stay ahead of the rapidly growing gaming market by delivering advanced supply chain capabilities that improve productivity, automate routine tasks and allow HyperX's teams to focus on the business at hand," said Allan Dow, president, Logility. "As demand for new and innovative high quality gaming devices increases, our solutions will help simplify the complexity, improve forecast accuracy and more effectively position inventory to increase service levels."
"We chose Logility for its proven track record and ease of use which will help our business more efficiently scale as the SKU count grows for HyperX gaming peripheral products and forthcoming consumer solutions from the Kingston brand," said Wei–Shine Chien, director of operations, Kingston. "The most important aspect to support our distributors, resellers and ultimately end customers is optimizing inventory and replenishment for ever–changing demand patterns. Logility Voyager Solutions are the exact platform we need as we head toward end–to–end supply chain visibility and optimization."
