VF Corporation-owned apparel and accessory brands Nautica and Kipling have implemented the JDA Allocation system with the help of supply chain consulting firm RPE.

The aim of the system’s multiple tools is to enable accurate, store-specific allocations based on level of demand, plan and historical performance data.

RPE provided services from a pre-work health check to post go-live support, including project management, documentation and issues management.

“RPE’s leadership, business best practices and JDA Allocation application expertise were vital to the project’s success,” said David Lawner, president of Nautica Retail. “This project had an aggressive and challenging implementation schedule, which RPE delivered on time and within budget, meeting all business requirements.”
