The merchandising solution enables organizations to proactively implement pricing based on rules such as margin, competitive prices, vendor incentives, and chain/zone/store overrides. It then automatically generates suggested changes, so financial effects can be evaluated prior to implementing planned price events.

JDA’s integrated solutions help streamline operations and optimize businesses throughout the world, serving retailers with its comprehensive merchandising, supply chain planning and optimization capabilities that support long-term growth.

We look forward to driving retail improvements for Robinsons and extending our partnership to support their growth in the region and beyond.

As the various subsidiaries of RRHI continue to transform and modernize their core systems, the JDA Merchandise Management System will be rolled out to its convenience stores initially, followed by other formats in the next 18-24 months as they continue progressing through their retail maturity curve.

The JDA Merchandise Management System upgrade will also provide RRHI subsidiaries the opportunity to use improved functions available in this latest version for merchandise handling, as it continues to serve as one of the foundational layers driving the retailer’s modernization efforts.
