JDA Software Group, Inc., today announced that CV PROTEK has partnered with JDA on a successful implementation of JDA® Demand, JDA® Demand Classification, JDA® Fulfillment, JDA®Production & Sourcing Optimizationand JDA® Platform. The implementation was managed by JDA’s strategic partner CROC Russia’s leading systems integration service provider and one of the country’s 10 largest IT companies.
As the largest Russian national distributor of pharmaceuticals and health care products offering 13,000 distinct products CV PROTEK is challenged to deliver high levels of service and availability, while achieving the low inventory levels that support profitability. Across its supply chain, which includes 165,000 square meters of warehouse space, CV PROTEK’s newly implemented suite of JDA software is already helping to optimize daily operations via more accurate forecasts, creating a truly demand-driven supply chain that spans the Russian Federation.
“In choosing to implement our JDA solutions suite, our first priority was to increase inventory turnover in order to achieve high service and product availability, at the lowest possible financial investment,” said Victor Gorbunov, Deputy General Director in charge of information technologies, CV PROTEK. “By replacing homegrown, manual processes with the automation enabled by JDA, we also wanted to increase productivity and maximize our overall return on our supply chain investments.”
While the JDA solutions suite was recently implemented, according to Victor Gorbunov the company has already begun to realize significant benefits, including:
• Reduction in overall supply chain costs;
• Improved inventory turnover;
• More accurate, demand-driven forecasts;
• Dynamic safety stock planning, leading to inventory reduction;
• Increased automation and productivity;
• Decrease in lost sales caused by out-of-stocks.
“Because our JDA solutions are best of breed, with the most sophisticated functionality, we have been able to quickly make a transition to new supply chain processes, a new level of automation and new supply chain visibility that helps us to understand our dynamically changing demand,” Garbunov stated. “We are sure that, by providing CV PROTEK with a better understanding of stock at each and every point in our supply chain, this JDA implementation will help us continuously optimize and improve our operation costs well into the future.”
“Few companies carry the enormous product range of CV PROTEK, also covering a geographic market as large as the Russian Federation,” said Stanislav Krupnik, Country Manager, Russia & CIS at JDA. “We’re delighted that the company’s new suite of JDA solutions is helping CV PROTEK to make fact-based decisions that are driven by actual customer demand across all its markets leading to a supply chain that’s truly optimized. It’s also gratifying that JDA solutions have been able to increase automation, accuracy and productivity across all the company’s operations, leading to some early financial returns. We’re proud to be a part of this customer’s success story.”
