A Great HIT: Dohle Handelsgruppe Implements JDA Space and Category Management Solution
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
Software Group, Inc., The Supply Chain Company®,
today announced that Dohle
Handelsgruppe Holding GmbH & Co.KG, Germany (HIT), a leading
retailer with more than 90 stores in Germany, has gone live with a
number of JDA space and floor planning solutions.
Dohle Handelsgruppe operates 90 HIT consumer markets and self-service
department stores. In order to implement the principles of modern
category management in a sustainable fashion, Dohle has been using
several JDA modules since January 2013: JDA®
Space Planning, to optimize merchandise presentation; JDA®
Floor Planning, to increase store area profitability; JDA®
Web Publisher, to communicate plans to the markets via the Internet; and JDA®
Intactix Knowledge Base (IKB), a central data bank to automate
category management processes. The JDA products were fully integrated
into Dohle's existing IT infrastructure with the sxLink SAP (News - Alert) interface.
JDA Software's German distributor, Strategix
Enterprise Technology GmbH, implemented and integrated the JDA
Solution with Dohle's ERP system. On a functional level, Dohle now
realizes significant benefits with the option of linking listing
processes with planograms, thereby avoiding overstocking. In addition,
Dohle can now make assortment decisions from a central location and
place articles in the right quantity and ready-for-sale on shelves. The
graphic visualization of fixturs and floor plans accelerates work
processes and ensures more accuracy. In addition, JDA IKB automatically
receives current product master data and sales data via interfaces.
Daniel Vollmer, project manager, assortment and space optimization,
at Dohle, explains Dohle Group's choice as follows, "We chose JDA
because its integrated solution for space and assortment planning makes
it possible to consistently apply category management principles to all
merchandise groups and stores."
In January 2013, piloted assortments in selected stores were linked to
the new system and then reorganized according to the optimized plans. Ingrid
Rothmann, manager for merchandise coordination at Dohle, adds, "For
us, JDA Space Planning is a practical and efficient solution. Across the
board, feedback from the pilot markets is positive." The next roll-out
step, linking to JDA Planogram Generator, is underway now. When
complete, Dohle will then be in a position to create market-specific
planograms taking user-defined merchandising rules and fixture
assortment and performance data into account.
"As a leading German retailer, Dohle understands that floor space is one
of the most valuable and limited assets. Through our floor and space
planning solutions, we can certainly help Dohle utilize our innovative
category management practices, increase profitability and provide
outstanding customer service," said Mark Morgan, regional vice
president, EMEA, JDA Software. "We look forward to helping
Dohle maximize and increase sales across their 90 HIT consumer markets
and self-service department stores."
