Scottsdale, Ariz. January 08, 2018

Disruptive forces are reshaping the future of retail, including the advancement of edge technologies, generational shifts among shoppers and exponential increases in digital commerce. Leading retailers are transforming their business models to serve the needs of the modern shopper. With this in mind, JDA Software Group, Inc. will showcase the future of retail as well as new strategies to evolve ahead of future disruptions at booth #2817 at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 107th annual Retail’s BIG Show, January 14-16 in New York City.

“The year ahead for retailers will be both challenging and exciting. The rapid increases in digital commerce are enabling retailers to better know and serve a new shopper model. Retailers also need to address the increasing demands for immediacy, combined with a great experience, and this is driving them to implement new technologies to reach shoppers in every channel,” said Terry Turner, president, North America Retail, JDA. “It is more important than ever for retailers to be armed with innovative solutions and changing practices for creating seamless and symbiotic brand and shopping experiences. This is what we are doing with many of our customers now, and what we will be sharing at NRF this year.”

JDA’s theme for NRF 2018 – “Expectations. Fulfilled.” – reflects JDA’s commitment to fulfilling customer expectations wherever, whenever and whatever the purchase. This year’s showcase reflects JDA’s unique capabilities: shortening customers’ supply chains from end-to-end, and speeding time to market while enabling retailers to better anticipate and fulfill customer expectations. JDA will showcase its Intelligent Retail solutions spanning retail planning, execution and fulfillment, as well as the in-store experience.

In JDA’s booth #2817, attendees will experience JDA’s vision of the future of retail in a number of ways:

  • Retail innovation theater: Attendees will take part in more than a dozen 20-minute sessions focused on how JDA, customers and partners –  including Google, Intel, Accenture and dunnhumby – are delivering the future of retail, now.
  • Transformative customer showcases: Attendees can engage with two of JDA’s most successful retail customers – L.L.Bean and PetSmart – and learn how JDA is transforming their customers’ experiences
  • Next generation interactive booth experiences: Attendees can experience in-booth augmented reality tours of the store of the future

“Our booth is an opportunity for NRF attendees to get a complete store experience, from ‘personalized everything’ to cutting-edge technological advancements that incorporate data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning,” Turner said. “We’re also showing concrete examples of these strategies in action, so attendees come away armed with the information they need to overhaul their supply chain strategies and exceed customer expectations in the year ahead.”
