JJA Selects DynaSys DSCP Ready To Plan

JJA believes that efficient sales forecasting through DynaSys is one of the keystones to meeting the company's challenges

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DynaSys, a leading provider of demand and supply chain planning (DSCP) solutions, today announced that JJA, a leading wholesaler of indoor and outdoor household products, has selected DynaSys Demand Planning and Procurement Planning solutions to automate, manage and control sales forecasts and procurement, while improving reliability. DynaSys is a division of QAD Inc. (Nasdaq:QADA) (Nasdaq:QADB).

"To be relevant, a solution has to encompass the efficiency of in-house processes and procedures and their supporting technologies," said Nicolas Souraqui, supply chain director at JJA. "Considering the ongoing development of our brands, and the increased volume of our product range, it is essential to have a robust, flexible, reliable and collaborative advanced planning system. With that in mind, we selected the DynaSys DSCP RTP (Ready To Plan) solutions in the cloud."

For the last 41 years, JJA has provided its 1,500 customers, who are specialized distributors of household items, with a wide range of products for decoration, tableware, cooking, gardening and the outdoors. Supported by a large warehouse with more than 20,000 products, JJA's goal is to meet customer demand with delivery times that do not exceed 72 hours. Implementing a DSCP solution will help JJA maintain their growth and keep their promise to their clients.

At JJA, digital technology makes sense only when it is fully dedicated to company purposes. "Smart solutions are nothing without the human expertise behind them," said Souraqui. "That's why we chose DynaSys DSCP RTP. It is a solution with a broad functional scope that is proven in the retail sector. Above all, we have full confidence in the know-how of the DynaSys project team."

DynaSys DSCP RTP will help JJA to:

  • Improve sales forecast reliability with demand planning, resulting in a more accurate and wider-reaching view of the company's activities
  • Reduce financial overhead through improved inventory management
  • Manage procurement from multiple countries, suppliers and sites to maintain optimal customer service levels
  • Automate calculations and analysis to achieve more informed and faster decision-making
  • Support collaborative solutions that form part of the JJA S&OP process
  • Refocus IT resources on JJA's core business by deploying its DSCP solution in the cloud

"In addition to finding a robust and flexible system, we needed to find a global, sustainable and long-term provider with a clear understanding of our business," added Souraqui. "We wanted to leverage DynaSys' experience to support our changing needs and help sustain our growth."

DynaSys CEO, Ariel Weil, added. "We have extensive expertise in the retail market and are particularly pleased to welcome JJA as a DynaSys customer. It joins a considerable list of companies in this challenging sector who have already chosen DynaSys. Cloud DSCP is becoming more widespread among our customers. We recognized that cloud would become the preferred deployment option for customers many years ago. Today's ongoing digital transformation is proving that we made the right decision."
