JDA Software said Russian grocery retailer O’KEY Group will implement a suite of solutions from JDA Category Management.

O’KEY Group owns one of the largest grocery chains in Russia, which currently consists of 70 hypermarkets and 37 supermarkets.

“The grocery retailer marketplace is not only competitive, it is constantly changing, and we know we need to create more localized offers for our customers and be much more store specific,” said Peter Rachovides, retail development director at O’KEY.

“We also need to maximize our product availability to increase revenues and eliminate lost sales opportunities. We know that the key to our success is having the right product in the right store, at the right time, when a shopper comes looking for it.”

The suite includes Space PlanningTM, Floor PlanningTM, Planogram GeneratorTM, Web PublisherTM, Space Automation ProTM and Category Knowledge BaseTM.

JDA’s regional partner Strategix CFT will manage the implementation of these solutions, including training and knowledge creation.

Nikolay Zatravin, chief information officer of O’KEY  said the retailer selected JDA because it offered the best functionality combined with Strategix CFT.
