JDA Adds Functionality for Retail Category Management

JDA Software Group Inc. has enhanced JDA Capability Management, to allow retailers to generate tailored planograms and assortments that reflect the needs of local shoppers.

The newest release features three major enhancements: store clustering, allowing users to more easily define strategies and tactics for a group of stores, then apply them to a sub-cluster or individual locations with Assortment Generator; customized local planograms, allowing for some "flex" space during the automated planogram generation process; and a flexible and scalable code base, with the new release of JDA Space Automation Professional. The last makes it easier to automate all JDA Category Management applications to target individual store needs, the vendor said.
