JDA extends presence in ANZ with new Sydney office

09 Aug 16

JDA Software has a new office opening in North Sydney that will expand on the company’s ANZ presence.

The company opened its first office in Sydney 22 years ago and now counts more than 100 customers across retail, manufacturing, third-party, logistics and wholesale distribution.

Amit Bagga, regional vice president for Asia-Pacific JDA, says that since its beginning, the company’s ANZ presence has continually grown.

“We’re proud to count so many customers across industries and solutions that count on JDA to power their supply chains,” says Bagga.

“The move to a new office in Sydney represents a commitment by the business to continue to build on the success that our team has achieved.”

JDA says its solutions offering has been delivering great value for its customers for more than 30 years, including technology from its merger with RedPrairie (2012), and acquisitions of i2 Technologies (2010) and Manugistics (2006).

The company’s end-to-end portfolio of retail, omni-channel and supply chain planning and execution solutions are deployed widely across brand name organisations in ANZ.

Bruce How, vice president of sales for ANZ at JDA, says the Australian and New Zealand market is unique globally.

“In all of our target market segments, customers face a highly competitive landscape and high operating costs. In addition, their consumers are rapidly embracing omni-channel and demanding a more personalised experience,” says How.

“In such a market, our customers are continuously looking to reduce inventories, increase supply chain velocity, and use their people and capital assets efficiently,” he adds.

“Looking ahead, we plan to continue our focus in empowering customers and driving profitable customer commerce, adaptable manufacturing, and intelligent fulfillment.”
