REDWOOD CITY, CA, February 7, 2017-- Based on its recent analysis of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) market for small and mid-sized manufacturing, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Kenandy Inc. with the 2017 North American Product Leadership Award. Kenandy Cloud ERP successfully addresses and anticipates the needs of small and mid-sized manufacturing companies and has earned its place as the #1 Cloud ERP as a result of strong overall performance.
Kenandy is redefining the ERP market by allowing customers to map their ERP to their existing business processes and removing the constraints of outdated ERP systems that many companies face today. By delivering a Cloud ERP with unprecedented flexibility, Kenandy gives customers the freedom to innovate products, services, operations, and relationships so they can grow revenues, scale, and update their business models as markets shift.
"Conventional ERP systems were not designed for today's businesses and force customers to conform to rigid software," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sankara Narayanan. "Kenandy has designed an end-to-end Cloud ERP solution with unlimited computing capability and a differentiated product architecture."
Kenandy's flexible design and faster implementation capabilities have enabled manufacturers to boost output with increased efficiency in production and inventory management. In addition to improved operations, Kenandy enables customers to launch new business models without the restrictions of legacy ERP systems. The company demonstrated this capacity with one of its customers, a Fortune 500 medical device manufacturer that was able to quickly launch a subscription service with Kenandy's Cloud ERP, which opened new revenue and business opportunities that they had not previously been able to achieve.
"We've had incredible feedback from the marketplace about how Kenandy is empowering businesses and driving growth for manufacturing and distribution companies," said Chuck Berger, CEO at Kenandy. "Our team is honored to be recognized for its best-in-class Cloud ERP solution. We remain focused on constantly delivering value to our customers so they can focus on growing their business instead of managing their software."
With Kenandy's Cloud ERP built on Salesforce, companies get an enterprise resource planning solution that is as easy to use as their CRM, and customers across departments benefit from a seamless connection between the front and back office. Kenandy's product leadership has been established through its advanced ERP product architecture, built with Business Ready Objects, Kenandy's proprietary smart information model that enables its market leading flexibility and innovative product design.
Kenandy achieved 200% year-on-year growth in 2016 and has raised over $55 million from world class investors such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and Wilson Sonsini Ventures. Kenandy has successfully delivered its end-to-end Cloud ERP on Salesforce to customers from a variety of verticals including shopping bag manufacturers, medical equipment and solar panel suppliers, pet food producers, and solar electronics companies. Kenandy's success with large and small manufacturing companies has established Kenandy's position as the top Cloud ERP provider in North America.
