Liberty Global Selects JDA Supply Chain Solution

International cable company Liberty General will optimize and centralize supply planning and procurement across 11 European countries.

Liberty Global Inc., a leading international cable company with operations in 13 countries, selected a number of JDA solutions in the third quarter of 2012, according to JDA Software Group Inc.. The solutions include JDA Fulfillment, JDA Demand, JDA Demand Classification, JDA Collaborate, and JDA Cloud Perform. They were chosen to optimize and centralize supply planning and procurement, increase inventory visibility and decrease inventory levels across a supply chain supporting 11 European countries, said the company.

Liberty Global is a leading international cable company with operations in 13 countries. The company provides television, broadband internet, and telephony services, which are provided through next generation networks and innovative technology platforms that connect 20 million customers who subscribe to 34 million services. Liberty Global’s consumer brands include UPC, Unitymedia, Kabel BW, Telenet, and VTR.

Challenged to deliver an advanced planning solution to support the implementation of centralized supply chain and procurement capabilities from a central distribution center in the Netherlands, Liberty Global turned to JDA solutions to provide some of the following capabilities across 11 European countries:
• Demand planning and forecasting
• Tactical returns and refurbishment forecasting
• Tactical and operational supply and returns planning across one central European distribution center, 11 country warehouses, eight tactical returns and refurbishment partners, and suppliers
• Distribution deployment planning of the European distribution center to the 11 country warehouses

“This is just the start of the supply chain initiative Liberty Global is undertaking,” said Anita Arts, vice president global supply chain, Liberty Global. “JDA clearly demonstrated that they were able to meet the complex requirements that we required, including being able to forecast different levels of the supply chain, provide increased inventory visibility and decrease inventory levels across the supply chain,” she continued.

“JDA Cloud Services will also allow Liberty Global to facilitate a more flexible approach to the initiative, enabling the project to start quicker and meet the aggressive time frames required by the business,” said Arts.

“JDA Demand, Fulfillment, and Collaborate solutions are designed to help organizations gain a global view of their business to ensure the right inventory is available in the right place and at the right time,” said Razat Gaurav, SVP, International, JDA Software. “We are very excited that Liberty Global has selected JDA solutions to support the supply chain initiative they are undertaking to support their operations in 11 European countries.”

JDA consulting and implementation alliance member Capgemini will be involved with the delivery and implementation of the JDA solutions.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
