“Brick is the New Black” at JDA Keynote Address at NRF 2015

JDA’s session includes former Walmart CEO Bill Simon and booth features performance by Magician David Blaine

NRF Big Show 2015

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--()--Online and mobile shopping has forever changed retail; the “right now” consumers of today are more empowered than ever and enjoy a new sense of control. These consumers are the new boss in retail. The biggest challenge is delivering for this new boss – giving them the products they want, when and how they want them delivered. Retail leaders must forge a plan to profitably deliver for today’s new boss.

JDA Software Group, Inc. is helping customers around the globe deliver for this new boss and will be leading a not-to-be-missed NRF 2015 keynote session and panel discussion Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 3:15 p.m. in the North Hall of the Javits Convention Center. The keynote and panel entitled Brick is the New Black will feature Chairman and CEO of JDA Bal Dail, President of Levi’s Brand James Curleigh, former CEO of Walmart U.S. Bill Simon, Senior Partner at brand agency Lippincott James Wright, and will be moderated by CNBC’s retail reporter Courtney Reagan. The panel will discuss strategies to meet the wants and needs of today’s always-on consumers and discuss how retailers can leverage brick and mortar environments to thrive in today’s dynamic retail landscape despite the rise of online shopping and omni-channel.

JDA further expands on these strategies in its booth, #2821, where retailers can learn more about how they can plan to deliver for this new boss in 2015 through the use of JDA’s innovative retail solutions. JDA will demonstrate the new capabilities that retailers need to profitably orchestrate omni-channel orders, deliver customer-centric assortments online and in stores, and fulfill orders dynamically to meet the desires of the New Boss.

“Retail continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, presenting numerous opportunities for retailers to adapt to the new boss and thrive,” said Wayne Usie, senior vice president of retail industry strategy at JDA Software. “The death knell for brick-and-mortar was premature. Physical stores remain at the emotional and financial core of today’s retail model and can be leveraged to engage and delight the new boss and deliver real profit and brand equity. However, retailers need to act now to evolve their processes and capabilities to capture the potential that the new boss holds, or risk losing this fickle customer to a competitor.”

JDA’s engaging booth experience will feature an amazing performance by the legendary New York-based magician, illusionist and endurance artist David Blaine in the booth at 3 p.m. Monday, January 12, 2015. Blaine will delight attendees with his one-of-a-kind performance on Monday at 3 p.m. all NRF attendees are encouraged to not miss this chance to see how Blaine “delivers” in person!
