SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- February 26, 2013

JDA^® Software Group, Inc., The Supply Chain Company^®, today announced that
10 Special Interest Groups (SIGs) have been added to the JDA Users Group as a
result of the company’s recent merger with RedPrairie. That brings the total
to 51 SIGs representing a broad cross-section of products in the JDA

The JDA Users Group’s mission is to foster an environment where active
participation maximizes its members’ investments in JDA solutions and enables
individuals from member companies to grow both personally and professionally
through collaboration with other supply chain professionals.

JDA SIGs provide an environment where members can share ideas on product
direction and enhancements with JDA product management. SIGs are typically
organized around JDA solutions and are managed by a customer-elected
chairperson, as well as a JDA associate who serves as SIG manager. New SIGs
and their JDA and customer leaders, include:

  *Commerce: Justin Ellison of Buckle, SIG chair; Ken Garza, JDA, SIG manager
  *Dispatcher: Ivan Sheldrake of Unipart, SIG chair; Heather Laws, JDA, SIG
  *Enterprise Store Operations: Pam Sheen of Dunkin’ Brands, Inc. and Keli
    Anderson of Sheetz, SIG chairs; Fiona Harris, JDA, SIG manager
  *RedPrairie Transportation: Robert Paoletti of Technicolor, SIG chair;
    Keith Whalen, JDA, SIG manager
  *Warehouse Management: Pete Grett of GENCO and Tom Delaney of Mars, SIG
    chairs; Scott Zickert, JDA, SIG manager
  *RedPrairie Workforce Management: Monica Enko of Big Y Foods, Inc., SIG
    chair; Chris Sundgren, JDA, SIG manager

Four additional groups have SIG managers from JDA, but have open positions for
SIG chairs. Those groups are:

  *Direct Commerce: Tracy Jobbitt, JDA, SIG manager
  *Brand Protection and Inventory Visibility: Scott Zickert, JDA, SIG manager
  *Performance Management for Retail: John Moulton, JDA, SIG manager
  *Performance Management for Supply Chain: John Moulton, JDA, SIG manager

In addition, Pam Sheen, co-chair of the Enterprise Store Operations SIG, has
been named a vice president of the JDA Users Group. Users Group officers are
responsible for managing the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and ensuring their
voice is heard by JDA product management. Officers meet each month to review
progress toward reaching the year’s goals, such as increasing SIG
participation. Officers also meet quarterly with SIG chairs and SIG managers
to review goals and discuss how they can enhance the SIG processes to enable
increased participation and networking in order for members to gain the most
value from their JDA investment.

George Frongillo of Staples, is the JDA Users Group president. Greg Gries of
Perdue Farms and Suzanne Toepfer of Chico’s FAS, Inc., are JDA Users Group
vice presidents, and Lesley Klinger of The Hershey Company, is the JDA Users
Group administrative director.

“Users groups provide valuable feedback on products and their real-world
applications that help us to innovate and improve,” said John Kopcke, chief
technology officer, JDA Software. “They also offer their members the
opportunity to share best practices, network and grow their careers through
regular meetings and information sharing. The addition of the RedPrairie user
community to JDA’s very active users group brings together some of world’s
best practitioners in a single, powerful organization.”
