The Co-op will implement JDA’s Floor Planning Plus, Assortment Optimization, Assortment Generator, Category Knowledge Base, Planogram Generator, Space Automation Professional and Channel Clustering.
software will enable the company to offer shopper-centric range planning to drive sales and increase efficiency while boosting customer satisfaction.
The Co-op required a next generation space planning and assortment solution and chose JDA to be implemented alongside SAP, to meet its needs.
Through creating better localised ranges, improving on-shelf availability, and increasing in-
store stock levels, JDA will enable the Co-op to deliver on its local ranging strategy, while meeting shoppers' in-store requirements, maintaining profitability and increasing sales.
The implementation will start in February 2017.
Cheryl Marshall, Co-op retail CIO, said: "JDA's best-in-class space planning and assortment management solutions will play a key role in our next phase of renewing the Co-op, as we continue to invest in the business. Localised store ranges and improved stock levels will allow us to further our growth and ensure that our customers feel confident their local store can meet their grocery shopping needs."
