Due to a less than favorable experience with their former provider, AKIRA was forced to replace a system it purchased less than one year ago. “There is something to be said for rolling out a new retail management system during the busiest shopping season of the year. Taking this task on during the holiday season was a bit risky, but we had to do it,” said James Christia, AKIRA’s IT Director.
“However, I'd rate our experience with JDS’ team a perfect 10! JDS definitely has the A-Team, and they set the bar high. They have done an amazing job with rolling out our project, as well as, manage our expectations. We feel very positive about the long term relationship between our two companies.”

“It’s not what you do, but how you do it that matters,” said Dan Friedman, President of JDS Solutions. “AKIRA was in trouble with their existing system and we did what was needed to make this happen. Our project team pulled together and met AKIRA’s implementation timeline. It was definitely a collaborative effort, we are glad to have them as part of the JDS family.”
