SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JDA® Software Group, Inc., The Supply Chain Company®, today announced MYDIN Mohamed Holdings Bhd, a leading Malaysian retailer and wholesaler, has successfully implemented several space and floor planning solutions from the JDA® Space and Category Management suite. The solutions, including JDA® Space Planning, JDA® Floor Planning, JDA® Space Automation and JDA® Intactix Knowledge Base, were chosen to streamline existing space management processes leveraging industry best practices and automation.
MYDIN is the largest retail organization in Malaysia, with close to 200 outlets ‒ consisting of hypermarkets, mini markets (MyMydin), convenience stores (MyMart), Bazaars and emporiums – nationwide. MYDIN has been appointed as the operator for the 85 Malaysian government-initiated Kedai Rakyat1Malaysia (KR1M) outlets in 2012 and plans to open another 90 KR1M outlets for the year 2013 in the whole of Malaysia. In addition to these, MYDIN also has 10 MYDIN Malls with many more in the pipeline.
Challenged with new store openings and remodels, manual shelf space management, and store execution and compliance issues led MYDIN to turn to JDA’s comprehensive space and category management solutions to solve its business needs. MYDIN expects the JDA solutions to help:
- Increase revenue through more consumer-centric assortments; improve in-stock positions, appropriate floor and shelf space allocation, and speed to market of new store launches and existing store remodels.
- Reduce inventory through assortments tailored to local demographics, identification and removal of inefficient inventory.
- Improve process efficiency through integration of a merchandising management system with a centralized space management system and automation to reduce manual processes and data processing.
- Redeploy resources to extend planogramming to 50 percent of the categories in the business to drive revenue growth.
“With new store openings and remodels taking place at an accelerated pace, we are very excited to have partnered with a world-class solution provider to help us gain the benefits that come with advanced floor and space planning,” said Malik Murad Ali, IT Director, MYDIN Mohamed Holdings Bhd. “With the right solutions and processes in place, we are confident we can create a competitive advantage and support our future growth plans.”
