JDA Software today announced that it was awarded the Kmart 2014 Projects and Innovation Award for its JDA® Allocation implementation.
Kmart is one of Australia’s largest retailers with 191 stores across the country. Annually, Kmart rewards excellence across three categories support, productivity, projects and innovation. JDA received the award as a result of the excellent role that their project team played in the successful implementation.
Kmart has been using JDA Software to manage allocation for its 73 departments since early 2013. “JDA Software’s allocation solution was easy to implement and our teams immediately realised that it provided a better way for them to allocate.” said David Keil, general manager, information technology, Kmart. “The new allocation software is helping us to focus on the processes and execution we need to support our long-term growth strategy.”
“JDA is honored to receive this award for project implementation from Kmart,” said Patrick Viney, senior director, retail industry, JDA Software. “Our experience with our retail customers around the world demonstrates that the allocation process is a very important step for retailers with seasonal merchandise to be able to optimize and provide a fast ROI with low risk. Being recognized by one of our customers is a tremendous validation for our solutions and motivates us to continue providing the high level of solutions and services our customers have come to expect from JDA.”
Kmart has also recently purchased the JDA® Enterprise Planning solution, with implementation planned for mid-2015.
