JDA Software Wins French Specialty Foods Firm

Scottsdale, Arizona-base supply chain applications publisher JDA Software Group said this morning that a French specialty foods manufacturer has licensed a solution from JDA's Category Management suite. The financial impact of the customer win was not disclosed. JDA explained that Oliviers & Co. will utilize JDA's Space Planning application to help execute a planned expansion that will nearly double the firm's store count from 85 to 150 within the next five years. Part of the planned growth, JDA explained, will stem from Oliviers' new organic cosmetics and skincare line. Oliviers currently produces and retails olive oil, specialty vinegars, tapenades and spreads.
