German grocer, Dohle, improves availability with JDA Software solutions


German grocery retailer Dohle Handelsgruppe has selected a number of space and floor planning solutions from JD Software to help improve shelf- and floor-level planning for increased merchandising effectiveness and customer satisfaction.

JDA said Dohle selected its Space and Category Management solutions to help rationalise its store layouts; optimise store-specific assortments; automate its merchandising based on pre-defined rules and policies; provide just-in-time employee information on new products, product changes and planograms; differentiate assortments based on local preferences and better anticipate consumer demand.

“We expect to further reduce stockouts, streamline workflow and decision-making, and improve our planogram consistency and accuracy with the use of JDA’s Space & Category Management solutions,” said Carl Bauerschmitz, CFO Dohle Handelsgruppe Service. 

“Additionally, we will increase sales by using JDA solutions to allocate the optimum space for each product and category. With JDA’s scalable and fully-integrated Space & Category Management applications, we can manage it all at a much faster speed than before.”

Razat Gaurav, senior vice president, EMEA, JDA Software, said: “In today’s competitive environment, retailers like Dohle are quickly realising the necessity to optimise store-specific assortments and analyse the entire sales floor. By implementing JDA Category Management solutions, Dohle will have the ability to provide relevant information to the right person at the right time to respond to diverse customer preferences and deliver an improved customer experience.”
