The convergence of physical and digital retail has changed how user need to deliver on the customer buying experience.

JDA Software Group, Inc. Creates More Profitable Omni-Channel Supply Chain

JDA Software Group, Inc. announced new integrated fulfillment capabilities that combine the power of JDA Intelligent Fulfillment and Labor Productivity solutions with Order Management solutions from IBM Commerce. By leveraging this technology collaboration, companies can process orders more intelligently and profitably across sales channels in real-time to ensure customers have a flawless end-to-end buying experience. The latest JDA release delivers major benefits to both retailers and shoppers alike: 'Click and Collect' ordering delivers simple, customized ordering for shoppers, and cost savings for retailers. Instead of navigating a confusing array of options, the new capabilities offer a simplified experience that allows shoppers to select their preferred pick-up or delivery time and location. Behind the scenes, JDA and IBM integrate the order management, the warehouse management and the transportation management systems to fulfill each order profitably. For example, retailers can reduce inventory by linking directly to distribution centers and hubs while maximizing transportation assets by automatically consolidating shipments and optimizing routes; 'Rescue the Return' minimizes the cost of product returns. Product returns are becoming significantly more costly for omni-channel retailers who lack visibility into incoming returns, and the resources needed to process these items. As a result, returned items languish at a store location rather than being added back into inventory and sold to a customer. JDA’s new release features an intelligent returns authorization process where the order management system alerts the warehouse management system of expected returns. By including returned items as part of available inventory, teams can proactively fulfill orders and reduce the number of mark-downs in order to minimize lost sales and maximize margins; Destination-driven demand shows the true source of orders. When shoppers can’t find the product they’re looking for in a store, store associates typically arrange for delivery from a fulfillment center to their home. However, traditional fulfillment systems fail to attribute this demand to that store location which results in forecasts and inventory plans which, over time, fail to deliver an accurate assessment of what is in stock, which can ultimately impact the customer’s experience. With these new capabilities, teams have insight into each customer’s omni-channel order details which enables accurate forecasting and replenishment of stores and, more broadly, improved upstream inventory positioning to reduce labor, transfer and shipping costs in the future.

JDA Software Group, Inc. Announces New Capabilities in Flowcasting

JDA Software Group, Inc. has announced new capabilities in JDA Flowcasting. JDA Flowcasting enables trading partners to work together from a single forecast and plan to improve profitability, productivity and control. "Retail forecasting and analysis teams are faced with many challenges in the current omni-channel selling environment. They need to precisely estimate the demand for fast-moving promotional items, while also accurately predicting sales trends for slow moving SKUs, quickly identify and attack the root cause of forecasting exception errors, so that profitable stocking levels can be achieved going forward. JDA has enhanced the automation level for the exception-resolution process, improved promotions forecasting workflows to increase accuracy, and enhanced the slow-moving products forecasting logic to support more profitable replenishment policies. Improved promotion forecasting and replenishment accuracy; and More precise forecasting for slow-moving products. While achieving pinpoint accuracy across thousands of SKUs may be impossible, exclusive new functionality in JDA Flowcasting enables the fast-ever resolution of exceptions. Built-in analytics automatically identify common root causes behind multiple issue types, and intelligently highlight areas with impact on the key metrics focused on by the planners. Users can act on these exceptions as a group by pulling a single lever to attack the root cause and prevent a recurrence. Updates are live almost immediately, saving time and protecting profit margins across multiple product groups, delivering the most profitable, expedient resolutions. JDA Flowcasting Collaboration Workbench now enables forecasting teams to easily import, export and edit promotion-related data at an item or item-at-a-location level. For the first time, both manufacturers and retailers can look at the same set of detailed promotional data. As they rely on both promotions and localized assortments to win shopper loyalty, this powerful new capability supports more accurate stocking and replenishment policies that distribute inventory where it is most needed during critical promotional events. Users can now extract a slow-mover demand profile at a cluster level across similar stores or similar products. This creates a much more robust sales history from which to accurately predict future demand. Retail planners can make more intelligent purchasing decisions or delay orders when appropriate, leading to a reduction in total inventory and an improvement in profit margins. JDA Flowcasting is part of JDA Intelligent Fulfillment, which enables retailers and manufacturers to solve inventory planning, replenishment and order fulfillment challenges with an integrated set of cloud-based supply chain planning and execution solutions.
