JDA Software Group, Inc., today announced that Rose Pharmacy, one of the largest pharmaceutical retailers in the Philippines, has expanded its use of JDA® Merchandise Management System™ to increase its consumer focus. A JDA customer since 2009, Rose Pharmacy expanded its deployment in order to capitalize on additional software functionality that was not initially implemented. JDA Consulting Services is managing the expansion of JDA Merchandise Management System for the retailer.
Established in 1952 in Cebu City, Rose Pharmacy (rosepharmacy.com) is one of the Philippines’ top pharmaceutical retailers. The company has more than 246 branches in strategic locations all over the country, providing easy access to high-quality, and affordable products for its numerous customers.
JDA Merchandise Management System ensures that the right products are delivered to the right place, at the right price, at the right time. Retailers like Rose Pharmacy have the ability to define and adjust pricing “rules” that are based on customer needs, competitor offerings, vendor incentives and other factors.
For Rose Pharmacy, capitalizing on the power of this JDA solution will allow the implementation of more targeted promotions with a higher probability of success. It will also help optimize merchandising agility as market conditions change, allowing the retailer to identify and serve customer needs more effectively.
“When we first implemented JDA Merchandise Management System, the retail landscape was not as complex, so we did not need all of the software’s functionality,” noted Charlie Bettencourt, CEO at Rose Pharmacy. “However, in today’s highly competitive, fast-changing retail environment, we are taking another look at the powerful capabilities of this JDA solution. In today’s omni-channel world, these capabilities can help us sense and respond better to changing conditions. In the future, we will be able to react more quickly, in order to provide the best possible service to our shoppers.”
In addition, Bettencourt points out that JDA Merchandise Management System is able to model different pricing scenarios and predict the likely outcome before new pricing policies are actually implemented. “By fully leveraging JDA’s software functionality, we can further develop our promotional offerings as we explore new merchandising strategies,” he stated.
“It’s extremely gratifying when an existing customer chooses to expand a JDA solution and even more rewarding to see them taking advantage of functionality that was under-utilized in the past,” said Amit Bagga, regional vice president, sales, APAC at JDA. “We look forward to extending our successful relationship with Rose Pharmacy and helping the company meet the new challenges presented by today’s omni-channel selling environment.”
