GSR stamps its mark in Korea with the JDA Global Shop Replenishment system
After months of hard work and miles of travel to lay the groundwork, Korea has finally gone live with the JDA Shop Replenishment system on November 6, 2017.
Amway Korea’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Sang Hoon Park applauded the team for their months of tireless effort and dedication in making this a success.
“In the face of hardship, setbacks and challenges, I’m proud to say that the Korea team managed to pull through this feat with perseverance and dedication. I would like to convey my appreciation to the Korean team for working hard simultaneously on all the Global initiatives.”
Sang Hoon was referring to the three major system changes that Korea was a part of. Korea has undergone a full transitional phase in 2017, with the implementation of the RedPrairie Warehouse Management System, ATLAS ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) System, and the JDA Shop Replenishment System.
JDA is a leading shop replenishment system that allows shop planners to anticipate market needs through accurate forecasting of future demand. JDA provides much-needed visibility to enable efficient planning that will result in higher ABO satisfaction when we provide the right products, in the right place and in the right time.
Korea is the third market in Asia Pacific to go-live with the GSR JDA Planning System, after Malaysia and Thailand.
Marc Van Pruijssen, the Director of the GSR Program & Supply Chain Development and Innovations, was also present during the momentous event and showed his appreciation to the team in his speech.
“We have come a long way since we last spoke about GSR six years ago. I still remember the day when we spoke about this plan to the team in Busan and ever since, we have never been short of support from this organization. Your perseverance and dedication have been a crucial backbone to the success of this project. Thank you everyone for the time and effort you have invested to achieve this incredible milestone.”
Atsushi ‘Ash’ Suzuki, BSI Director also congratulated the team, and urged them to maximize the benefits of a better shop replenishment planning system.
“As the business continues to grow, supply chain needs a transition from manual spreadsheet-based processes to a more automated exception-based process, which enables us to stay relevant in the market. A huge appreciation to the Korea Supply Chain Planning team for the great collaborative work, especially for the ATLAS-GSR Synergy Program. I encourage you to take charge of the system and leverage it to transform the business. Congratulations and thank you once again for the great teamwork,” he concluded.
