Integration of platforms transforms planograms into step-by-step instructions and gives retailers “x-ray vision” into stores
BOSTON – One Door, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based visual merchandising software, today announced a signed partnership agreement with JDA Software, Inc. Together, JDA and One Door will integrate JDA's category management and space planning capabilities with One Door's Merchandising Cloud™ platform.
For almost 50 years, planograms have been the way retailers communicate space planning and merchandising decisions to stores. However, store teams often find planograms confusing and inconvenient. The result is poorly set shelves, low display compliance, millions in lost sales and high labor costs. With this new collaboration, JDA customers can turn existing planograms into step-by-step, interactive merchandising guides delivered to a mobile device. As a result, store teams efficiently set shelves and displays, deliver higher store compliance and provide merchandising and category management teams with invaluable insights into store performance.
“JDA’s leadership in planogramming and space planning have made their software the most broadly deployed in the industry,” said Tom Erskine, CMO and SVP of Product, One Door. “This agreement allows retail leaders using JDA category management to rapidly improve in-store execution, without changing their current planogramming process. It also highlights JDA's commitment to building a partner ecosystem and creating an open platform to accelerate retail innovation."
The two companies are integrating their leading technologies for this agreement. The combination of JDA's Category Knowledge Base (CKB) APIs and One Door's Planogram Connector™ enables the seamless integration of JDA planogram information into Merchandising Cloud. Once in Merchandising Cloud, planogram data is converted into visual, step-by-step instructions and delivered in real-time to store teams.
“At JDA, we are committed to creating an open platform that enables a broad ecosystem of partners to augment our existing capabilities,” said Jim Prewitt, Group Vice President of Product Management, JDA Software. “One Door’s Merchandising Cloud platform provides highly complementary capabilities to our existing category management customers, and we look forward to partnering so we can continue to evolve and deepen our relationship.”
One Door and JDA will attend NRF’s Big Show Jan. 11-14, 2020 in New York City. Retailers and brands looking to learn more about the partnership can visit JDA’s booth (#4237) on Monday, Jan. 13 at 9 a.m. for a presentation on the collaboration.
