JDA Announces »Fast Track NOW« Implementation Approach To Drive Fast Results


A unique, new implementation offering from JDA Services means faster time to value in today's dynamic, omni-channel world

Thousands of companies have achieved successful supply chain transformations by relying on the advanced technologies and business expertise of JDA Software Group, Inc. Now, JDA Services has announced a new rapid implementation approach that enables customers to begin achieving a meaningful transformation and earning a return on investment up to 50 percent faster. JDA Fast Track NOW is a proven methodology that relies on best-practice and templatized approaches to software implementation, derived from JDA’s decades of experience, to deliver customer value.

By relying on decades of best-practice experience to pre-configure versions of JDA’s proven retail and supply chain solutions — launched via JDA Cloud Services and referred to as JDA NOW offerings — customers can quickly get their JDA solutions up and running in a very short timeframe. Not only can companies begin earning financial returns much earlier, but their overall implementation costs will be greatly reduced. User adoption is accelerated via pre-configured documents and templates in conjunction with online training courses.

»No one has more industry depth and breadth and supply chain and retail solutions know-how than JDA. JDA has helped more than 4,000 companies — including the world’s leading retailers and manufacturers — achieve supply chain results via successful software implementations,« noted Steve Davis, vice president and retail consulting partner at JDA. »That experience has created an incredible depth and breadth of expertise that is reflected in our new JDA Fast Track NOW approach. We know what makes for a successful JDA software implementation. Based on that knowledge, we’ve assembled industry-leading process templates and best practices that will drive a rapid go-live, so that customers can begin seeing results very quickly.«

»Because every company’s supply chain challenges are unique, the JDA Fast Track methodology allows for customization and personalization,« added Manish Ghosh, vice president and manufacturing consulting partner at JDA. »That personalization is based on applying a proven set of foundational software functionalities, as well as implementation process templates, that have already created real results for thousands of JDA customers. We have taken everything we know about achieving time-to-value and put them into re-usable parts in these implementation offerings.«

A key component of the JDA Fast Track methodology is the close involvement of JDA Cloud Services to ensure rapid on-boarding. With immediate access to a robust, fully functioning cloud-based technology platform, customers can quickly and easily deploy JDA software across their end-to-end supply chain.
