JDA Software, a company that provides software to manufacturers and retailers globally, plans to increase its client base in India to 70 in the couple of years.

Talking to BusinessLine, Salil Joshi, India MD of JDA Software said that as more Indian companies are embracing omni channel strategy (getting business from Internet and in-store), coupled with growing number of companies in the e-commerce space, would fuel its growth in the country where it currently has 40 clients.

Currently, it has around 30 customers in India, which includes manufacturers and retailers- both online and physical stores. "As commerce is picking up rapidly, retailers are struggling with bringing their various business functions such as floor planning, merchandising, supply chain all in a single platform," said Suresh Acharya, VP, Product Development, Shared Technology Group. However, he added that according to a recent study conducted by the company, manufacturers and retailers recognize that their global supply chains have become incredibly complex-but most are still relying on outdated tools and ineffective processes to manage the complicated end-to-end value chain.

JDA has around 2,200 employees in India who work on IP-related areas for the billion dollar company in areas such as customer support, consulting, social, mobile analytics and cloud computing technologies.
