It can be said in life that the only constant is change. Those involved in the manufacturing, retail or transportation industries the past year would likely attest to the truth of that statement.
Customer demands are changing. Global trade regulations are in flux. The commodities market, well, that’s anybody’s guess. With these issues representing just a small portion of the business challenges our customers face each day, there’s no denying that today’s marketplace is a dynamic blend of challenge and opportunity.
Those same challenges and opportunities are what inspired the latest installment of Real Results, JDA’s award-winning magazine. Whether you flip through the pages in the digital interactive version, or access the content at www.jda.com/realresultsmagazine, what you’ll find are perspectives and real-world examples of how industry experts and organizations are harnessing complexity as a catalyst for change, growth and refinement.
Whether you’re interested in reducing risk through the cloud, planning more profitable assortments, establishing high-impact supply chain metrics, or creating a mobile workforce, this magazine has it covered. Other topics include: global agility in transportation, minimizing the impact of product recalls, achieving supply chain excellence in manufacturing, and emerging trends in Latin America and hospitality.
You’ll also find case studies from industry leaders such as Talbots, RONA, Mark’s, Giant Eagle and Fujitsu, among others. And since JDA – like its customers – believes in the power of change to drive opportunity, you’ll find a letter from our CEO Hamish Brewer discussing JDA’s recent merger with RedPrairie.
We hope you find value in Real Results. Thank you to all of the industry experts that made this publication a reality. We welcome feedback on the featured articles, ideas for future articles, and as always, suggestions on how JDA can better serve you through our insights, solutions and services.
