JDA Software Group, Inc. has announced REPL Group as one of the first Certified Mobile Alliance partners to join its newly launched Certified Mobile Alliance Program.
The new JDA Certified Mobile Alliance Program allows approved partners to certify mobile applications based on JDA’s industry-leading omni-channel retail and supply chain solutions.
REPL Group is one of the first partners to join the JDA Certified Mobile Alliance Program, having already been involved in a number of successful implementations where a JDA solution and an REPL application have been deployed together. These implementations have delivered unique and personalized solutions for a range of Tier 1 retailers, from an enhanced mobile experience for in-store colleagues to a range of non-standard functionality such as filtering, till allocation and break reports.
With a focus on the end user in mind, JDA’s mobile strategy supports on-the-go tasks through multiple mobile options spanning responsive web design to installable mobile applications that serve a very specific task, use case or user role.
This program ensures that mobile applications produced by JDA alliances will work seamlessly with JDA solutions, not only extending return on their investment, but ensuring that these mobile applications meet customers’ specific requirements and can be brought to market quickly. Through JDA’s audit and certification process, alliances’ mobile applications will gain JDA’s certification for operability, providing joint customers with seamless user experiences that they can count on to operate today as well as into the future.
Paula Natoli, JDA vice president, product management, said: “At JDA, we know and understand the importance of mobility in the enterprise and continue to strengthen our mobile capabilities to arm customers with the visibility, convenience and efficiency mobility offers.
“We are pleased to work with alliance partners such as REPL Group to develop mobile applications which enhance the customer user experience as they interact with core JDA solutions.”
REPL Group CEO Mike Callender said: “REPL prides itself on being a flexible, agile and creative organization that is able to understand and solve user experience challenges quickly and cost effectively.
“Companies like ours are well-placed to complement JDA solutions and enhance their functionality by developing bespoke user experiences in response to specific customer requirements.
“We already enjoy a longstanding relationship with JDA, and we believe this mobile program will deliver even greater advantage for JDA, REPL and our many existing and future joint customers.”
