Industry insights at JDA Focus 2014

We were delighted to be in Las Vegas last month as a gold sponsor at the annual JDA Focus event.

The event, held over four days at the MGM Grand, attracted more than 2,300 delegates eager to share the latest information on technology and business process improvement.

Scores of sessions highlighted best practice across key areas, with a strong focus on warehouse management, transport management, space & category management and wider issues around end-to-end merchandising.

Away from the formal sessions (and some memorable social events), we were pleased to welcome a great many people to our busy stand.

As both a Platinum Partner and JDA’s 2013 Top Retail Partner EMEA, we were able to share insights drawn from the successful delivery of global projects involving a range of JDA solutions for workforce management, warehouse management, transport management, space planning, back office systems and more.

There was also great interest in both our management & technology consultancy and our software development / app building capabilities – ranging from our 3D visualisation technologies to innovative communication toolsets like FocalPoint.

Speaking after JDA Focus, REPL CEO Mike Callender said: “As ever, JDA Focus proved the best possible way to get a direct insight into the technology and process issues and ambitions of today’s global businesses.

“What is interesting to us is how many retailers, manufacturers and supply chain organisations are clearly looking to achieve a real and sustained competitive advantage by looking beyond standard platform solutions to their own bespoke – and often unique – technology and process implementations.

“With our blend of consultancy, project and technology capabilities, this approach is something that REPL is extremely well-placed to support.”

REPL is proud to offer a wide range of consulting and implementation services as a Platinum JDA Partner and the 2013 Alliance Partner Award for Top Retail Partner EMEA.

JDA Software is a leader in global supply chain management, offering a broad portfolio of integrated planning and execution solutions and services to help firms manage the entire supply chain — from raw materials to finished products and into customers’ hands — through any channel.

JDA’s recent merger with RedPrairie (with whom REPL already enjoyed a long and successful partnership), created a company uniquely positioned to deliver robust, integrated supply chain solutions that address the complexities of today’s global, consumer-driven marketplace.

Built on the heritage of growth, innovation and market leadership of its integrated brands, including i2 Technologies, Manugistics, E3, Intactix and now RedPrairie, JDA is committed to making businesses more efficient, sustainable and profitable.
