Scottsdale, Ariz. -- JDA Software Group announced that MC Sports, which operates more than 70 stores in seven Midwestern states, selected JDA Allocation and JDA Size Scaling to help increase revenue while reducing inventory levels.
During the selection process, JDA’s Strategic Services Consulting Group worked closely with MC Sports, evaluating existing systems and processes to determine which solutions would have the biggest impact on their business, with allocation and sizing emerging as having the best potential to drive increased revenue for the business.
“Over the past 18 months, MC Sports conducted a broad review of technology platforms capable of enhancing our merchandise allocation strategies,” said Bruce Ullery, president and CEO, MC Sports. “Through this review, our goal was to identify the platform best suited to increase the effectiveness of our allocators and provide the business intelligence necessary to manage a size intensive product mix. We believe JDA solutions will provide the tools necessary to improve in-stock positions, increase turns, raise gross margins, and ultimately increase revenues for our company.”
JDA Allocation enables the creation of accurate, store-specific allocations based on any combination and level of demand, plan and historical performance data. JDA Size Scaling can help businesses with the assortment, ordering, manufacturing, distribution and replenishment of properly sized products in order to optimize an overall inventory.
