JDA, Blue Martini to Deliver E-Commerce Solution for Retailers

JDA Software Group Inc. and Blue Martini Software formed a partnership to interface Blue Martini's e-merchandising system on the front-end with JDA's merchandising, warehouse and financial applications at the back end.

The resulting integrated solution will be available for both brick and mortar retailers expanding on the Internet and Internet pure plays requiring proven back-office functionality.

"Our partnership with Blue Martini will enable us to offer our retail clients yet another option for a complete e-commerce solution featuring a dynamic storefront," said Jim Armstrong, chief executive officer of JDA.

"JDA offers to Internet merchants the proven, scalable systems for order processing and fulfillment that have been sorely lacking in e-commerce solutions," said Monte Zweben, CEO of Blue Martini Software.

"Internet selling initiatives have encountered deployment delays due to the custom coding needed to integrate commerce servers into their retail systems. By making JDA functionality available to our customers, we can accelerate deployment and streamline operations."

JDA and Blue Martini are working to integrate their products in three areas: merchandise management, fulfillment and customer relationship management.
