SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JDA Software Group, Inc. will shine a spotlight on Retail.Me, its revolutionary solution for matching assortments and offers to specific customer segments at FOCUS 15, given its potential to transform omni-channel planning. Unveiled at the NRF Big Show 2015 in January, Retail.Me enables retailers to base their most important decisions about assortments, item selection, ranging, pricing and promotions on proven consumer preferences. In today’s environment of “me commerce” — where consumers demand relevance and personalization across every channel — this JDA software-as-a-service consulting offering provides retailers with a critical new tool for building profitable relationships with their shoppers.
Retail.Me will be the subject of numerous presentations at FOCUS 2015, scheduled for April 26-29 at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Fla. This annual global conference brings together more than 2,000 retail and manufacturing professionals to network, share best practices and hear how industry leaders are delivering real results with the help of JDA’s innovative solutions.
“Retailers have an incredible wealth of data not only from their point-of-sale systems, but also from loyalty programs, social media and other sources,” noted Anand Medepalli, vice president of retail planning product strategy at JDA. “This data includes vital information about where shoppers typically shop, which channels they prefer, their responsiveness to offers and promotions, and even their propensity to return products. For the first time, Retail.Me gathers all that data, intelligently segments customers, and then drives the creation of the right assortments and offers to make a profitable sale — no matter which channel the consumer is shopping.”
FOCUS 2015 attendees will have the opportunity to experience the capabilities of JDA’s Retail.Me via hands-on demonstrations, as well as presentations throughout the conference, including the following presentations which highlight the power of Retail.Me:
- “Intelligent Planning with JDA’s Retail.Me: Bringing Customer Centricity and Personalization to Your Assortments” — Monday, April 27, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
- “Grades, Clusters, Stores…Oh My! Where's the Customer in Your Assortment Plans?” — Monday, April 27, 2:45-3:45 p.m.
- “Plan Smarter, Not Harder!” — Monday, April 27, 4:15-5:15 p.m.
In addition, there will be 18 omni-channel-focused presentations at FOCUS, led by customers and JDA executives. These sessions will include topics such as JDA’s omni-channel vision and strategy, the impact of omni-channel on store operations, and driving supply chain efficiency and profitability.

“In advance of FOCUS 2015, there is a tremendous amount of interest in Retail.Me, because it is a unique proposition in the marketplace to help retailers meet the challenges of profitable omni-channel planning,” said Medepalli. “This software-as-a-service consulting offering brings the customer to the center of the assortment planning process. Omni-channel retail is about the constantly connected shopper whose path to purchase is according to his or her own unique behaviors and preferences. Understanding this path will allow retailers to be more agile with their assortments and offers, creating customer satisfaction and loyalty — and ultimately lead to improved profitability.”
