DT Group Selects JDA Advanced Warehouse and JDA Advanced Store Replenishment Solutions to Improve Margins and Reduce Inventory Levels for STARK Stores Leading Nordic retailer and building materials distributor expands JDA relationship to reduce inventory investment while keeping retail shelves and distribution centers stocked with the right merchandise Business Wire SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- November 6, 2013 JDA^® Software Group, Inc., The Supply Chain Company^®, today announced that DT Group, the largest retailer and distributor of building materials in the Nordic region, expanded its relationship with JDA by selecting JDA^® Advanced Warehouse Replenishment, JDA^® Advanced Store Replenishment and JDA^® Network Optimization to help increase revenue while reducing inventory levels across its integrated supply chain, fulfilling its STARK stores. The selection was made in the second quarter of 2013. DT Group has a broad customer base ranging from the general public through to professional building contractors, and offers deliveries straight to the building site. DT Group is owned by UK based Wolseley plc - the world's number one distributor of heating and plumbing products to the professional market, and a leading supplier of building materials and services across Europe and North America. Challenged with a stagnant building materials market under low-price pressures, fierce competition characterized by seasonally heavy promotions, and a necessity to drive costs savings and cash flow, DT Group required proven, industry-leading and centrally-managed retail replenishment, forecasting and network design solutions to project sales and place automatic orders based on store/item selling histories. Having experienced positive results in four business units where JDA replenishment solutions were previously implemented – Beijer and Cheapy in Sweden, Starkki in Finland, and Silvan in Denmark – DT Group decided to take a similar approach with its fifth business unit – STARK in Denmark. Previous implementations of JDA solutions allowed DT Group to take advantage of forecasting and replenishment information and work with promotional data to meet peak demand while optimizing both inventory and service levels. “DT Group is a market leader and we constantly work to improve the services we provide and make a real difference to our customers – be it B2B trade customers or DIY customers,” said Hans Henrik Junge, group vice president, IT, IT director, DT Group. “With the JDA solutions, we are able to optimize the product range, improve service levels, decrease inventory levels and minimize the time spent on these work processes. This results in happy customers and increasing sales, so it’s really a win-win situation.” “We are very pleased to partner with DT Group to deliver automated and centrally managed replenishment and order optimization solutions to support their continued growth,” said Mark Morgan, regional vice president, EMEA, JDA Software. “The ability to integrate demand and lead-time forecasting with order-policy and service-level analysis to provide accurate individual item demand forecasts and recommended orders will go a long way in helping DT Group continue its competitive market advantage.” JDA^® Advanced Warehouse Replenishment enables companies to optimize forecasting/replenishment performance and inventory at their distribution centers (DCs), while balancing carrying and acquisition costs to ensure the most profitable returns, superior DC execution and improved product availability. JDA^® Advanced Store Replenishment is a proven, industry-leading retail replenishment, forecasting and inventory management solution that projects sales and places automatic orders based on store/item selling histories.
