JDA Software Group Inc, The Supply Chain Company, announced that MC Sports, a privately-held sporting goods chain with more than 70 stores in seven states throughout the Midwest, selected JDA Allocation and JDA Size Scalingin the second quarter of 2011 to help increase revenue while reducing inventory levels. JDA retail solutions are well suited to midsize businesses like MC Sports due to adaptable configuration models that allow scalability while still providing best-in-class functionality and optimization.

JDA Allocation enables the creation of accurate, store-specific allocations based on any combination and level of demand, plan and historical performance data. Retailer-defined custom calculation methodologies provide the power and flexibility to manage inventory constraints, optimize predefined distribution preferences and precisely implement end-of-life strategies to realize significant inventory efficiency gains.

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. JDA Size Scaling transforms the generation of detailed size curves into an automated, cost-effective process, driven by advanced predictive and descriptive mathematical techniques. By launching updates at the right frequency, the solution recognizes unique consumer shopping patterns by time period and changing demographics, revealing the highest-demand size curves.

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. 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,” said Bruce Ullery, president and chief executive officer, MC Sports. “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.”

“We are very pleased to partner with MC Sports to deliver automated and scalable allocation and sizing solutions to support their continued growth,” said Wayne Usie, senior vice president, retail, JDA Software. “The ability to translate key customer insights into pinpointed allocations across stores and more profitably manage their sized inventories will go a long way in helping MC Sports continue its competitive retail advantage.”
