"It is both thrilling and a tremendous honor to be recognized by JDA," said Dov Shenkman, SVP replenishment and inventory management for OfficeMax. "As an early adopter of JDA Software, we were one of the first retailers to launch a large scale implementation to create a world class demand management and replenishment system down to the retail store level, giving us greater forecast accuracy and improved customer service levels. The technology has served as a catalyst to organization and process changes that continue to pay dividends as we experience increased efficiencies in both demand and replenishment."
