The platform from JDA and Blue Yonder can automatically determine the optimal price for a product at every stage of the lifecycle. It draws on information such as day, store, product, colour and size, identifying weak sellers and automatically adjusts their prices. Assortment managers can view the performance through reports. Galeria has been using the software since April 2018 in Karstadt department stores but will now expand it to Karstadt Sports and Kaufhof stores. Automation is one way that the newly combined entity is managing the increased sales volume.
