JDA Software Group, Inc. has announced that Renault SA has completed its implementation of JDA Demand and JDA Fulfilment to reduce inventory throughout the network, reduce stock-outs, increase productivity and improve operating margins. Renault annually produces more than 2.3 million cars and light commercial vehicles with an industrial and commercial presence in 118 countries.
As a result of this implementation, Renault's OPALE Program is now using JDA Demand to establish best-practice business processes that help create a clear picture of future consumer demand. Moreover, the company is using JDA Fulfilment to leverage forecast and end-customer demand signals to help create an optimized, multi-level replenishment plan to reduce stock-outs while improving inventory turns and product sell-through, with a goal of achieving higher margins for the company.
"With the JDA Demand and JDA Fulfillment solutions now in place, we expect to position and deliver the optimal amount of inventory to the various points in our network, reduce operational costs and increase top-line revenues across the enterprise, as well as achieve the ability to more profitably anticipate, create and satisfy customer demand," said Bruno Danr, OPALE programme manager, Renault SA. "JDA's proven methodology and results, expertise in the field and well-known reputation as an industry-leading supply chain provider were all contributing factors that ultimately led to Renault's selection of JDA Software."
"JDA Demand and Fulfilment solutions are designed to provide a global view of the business, achieve costs savings, reduce the risk of imbalance between commitments and demand, as well as achieve a more efficient management system," said Razat Gaurav, senior vice president, EMEA, JDA Software. "We are pleased to partner with Renault SA to bring our expertise, our innovative supply chain solutions and our proven delivery model to provide the fastest speed to value."
