JDA Software

In today’s volatile business climate, it is critical to evaluate the effectiveness of planning processes by analyzing actual results. JDA Performance Analysis gives merchandising organizations a powerful capability to monitor outcomes, including performance to original plan, forecast and actual. The solution enables teams to move seamlessly back and forth between planning and analysis, making performance measurement an ongoing process.

How does it solve your business challenges?

Your business is overwhelmed with the need to continuously plan and execute, but you also need to assess results. JDA Performance Analysis provides a flexible, easy-to-use tool that monitors key performance indicators (KPIs) on a continuous basis. Your planners are alerted to any performance exceptions that require their attention, and everyone on the team has visibility into coordinated plans across the enterprise.

What are the benefits?

  • Immediate access to plan-versus-actual data
  • Improved response to performance issues
  • Increased productivity, efficiency and accuracy

Why JDA?

JDA Performance Analysis includes unique analysis-by-attribute capabilities that enable your team to dynamically validate plans by the traditional merchandising hierarchy, as well as according to key business drivers such as brand, price point and lifestyle. Retail-specific calculations — such as analysis by weeks of supply — ensure that your team has the right information to make critical decisions.
