What do you like best?

The best thing about the JDA software is the 3D capabilities and graphics. With the newest update you can work in projects, amongst different categories, and still be able to save. The graphics are spot on and you are able to customize the software to your personal likings/settings. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

JDA can be gimmicky. If you aren't careful with your settings, you can really mess things up. And once you mess things up, it's hard to get back to the original starting point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assortment optimization. Planogram generator is definitely improved on the new system and helps with picking the correct assortments for stores. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How it implemented the inventory management formulas and supply chain structures in a relatively large scale.

Took a scientific approach to recommend inventory for our highly complex supply chain. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The UI was not very responsive and not very user friendly for a company with 9000+ parts to review/optimize for.

Lack of sensitivity analysis capability for raw material supply lead times.

No time-phased BOM/RTG options. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It would work better for a shorter, more horizontal supply chain (as opposed to one with 90 days of lead time and 4 intermediate product types).

Our biggest business problem was not warehouse optimization, which personally I think was Inventory Optimizer's strong suit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Optimizing for inventory: what's the right thing to carry and how much.

Reduced manual work by quite a bit; no more "This number just feels right". Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

- initial overview over several solutions and provider;

- possibility to have a very first information about important criteria for products / solutions

- get a pre-selection of possible solutions for my requirements

- don't have to visit several homepages or other information platforms

- getting an insight very short termed;

- less effort and time to get valuable information about potential solutions and product Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

- only few criteria to compare listed solutions

- too expensive for a small company

- some features not required by every company

- some features can be handled better by "standard" office tools

- "stand-alone" tool makes the use and the value added less in comparison to complete ERP-tools with integrated inventory optimization functionalities such as for example SAP, Ariba, oracle, IBM Emptoris supply chain process and purchasing solution, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- need to consider the strategy and future development of the company

- software is too overloaded with content that is not required by all users

- assessment- and evaluation functionality needs to be extended and improved to increase the added value compared to the time and effort for the use of the tool Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- optimization of the supply chain;

- quicker process-flow

- consolidate information Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Inventory investment optimization. Have achieved noticeably better inventory turns. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
