JDA Software Group Inc announced that Chico's FAS Inc, a women's specialty retailer of private-branded, sophisticated, casual-to-dressy clothing, intimates and accessories, has licensed advanced technology from JDA Software to help improve merchandise planning, demand forecasting, inventory management and customer service levels, as well as help increase sales across its three retail brands that include Chico's, White House | Black Market and Soma Intimates.

After conducting a benchmark study in which Chico's FAS concluded that JDA offers the most comprehensive set of industry-leading merchandising and allocation applications on the market, the company selected multiple solutions from JDA's industry-leading Merchandising suite to drive more profitable replenishment and optimize the merchandise management process, including JDA Enterprise Planning, JDA Assortment Planning, JDA Allocation, JDA Channel Clustering, JDA Size Scaling, JDA Performance Analysis and JDA Enterprise Knowledge Base. JDA Allocation was selected for its proven ability to provide dynamic attribute-based planning for products, location and time using consumer-centric views of the data.

The retailer also licensed JDA Demand, JDA Collaborate and JDA Enterprise Architecture to enhance its overall supply chain capabilities while helping to drive a lower total cost of ownership, as well as JDA Workforce Management to help improve customer service levels and better manage labor within its stores.

“We needed proven, integrated software solutions based on retail best practices that would help us effectively balance our inventory investments with sales goals and consumer demand, and enable us to leverage every opportunity to drive revenues and increase profits.

With the JDA solutions, we are confident that we now have the right solutions to enhance enterprise-wide performance and efficiency, as well as take our business to the next level,” said Jeff Jones, chief operating officer, Chico's FAS.

Chris Koziol, chief operating officer, JDA Software, commented, “To be successful in today's retail environment, companies must have the ability to accurately anticipate and plan for which products consumers will buy, when they will buy them and at what price point.

JDA's unique position in the marketplace enables us to offer a complete range of integrated, robust solutions that can help leading retailers like Chico's FAS improve its inventory position by aligning supply with demand throughout its entire network in order to better satisfy customer expectations and increase sales.”
