RPE Provides JDA Retail Solutions for Floor & Decor


Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2014 -- RPE continues to provide JDA solutions for retailers across the country. The company’s latest success comes from assisting Floor & Decor, a leading specialty retailer, with implementing JDA Software Merchandise Management System and other various JDA solutions. Floor & Décor uses a professional business model that relies on business intelligence. It is critical to the retailer’s performance that management can have access to analytics no matter where they are located. RPE met the challenges the retailer was facing head on by providing innovative solutions.

In collaboration with Silvon Software, RPE suggested Viewer for IDEAS, which is a web-based business analysis software interface for retailers. The interface works as a client-server Business Intelligence for JDA MMS. Using the interface, Floor & Decor can create BI portals and custom reports without spending time or money investing in other solutions. One of the main benefits of Viewer is that it is designed to support mobile computing. With mobile computing, retail managers, executives and key suppliers can access information on the go via tablets, mobile phones and other portable devices.

President of RPE, Cliff Epstein, explained, “Viewer for IDEAS empowers our retail customers such as Floor & Decor to easily deliver scorecards, dashboards and reports to executives, line- of-business managers, store managers and numerous other stakeholders in the value chain to increase retail efficiencies across the board.”

By using Viewer, retailers can leverage current IDEAS functionality by having more options to access data. Users can access information from laptops, tablets, mobile phones and other mobile devices and deliver key analysis and summary reports based on user role and viewing preference.
