Lakeshore Learning Implementing JDA Portfolio to Support Growth Initiative
Educational and Learning Products Retailer Selects Portfolio Replenishment to Enhance Supply Chain Efficiencies

Scottsdale, Ariz. - February 25, 2003 - JDA® Software Group, Inc. announced that Lakeshore Learning Materials, Inc. is implementing a JDA Portfolio® solution. Offering a wide array of innovative learning materials and top quality educational products to teachers, parents and children all over the globe, the retailer will use Advanced Store Replenishment by E3™ to drive forecasting and replenishment efficiencies as well as support the company’s ambitious growth plans.

According to Bo Kaplan, Lakeshore Learning Materials' vice president of retail, the California-based company licensed Store Replenishment in fourth quarter 2002 to replace manual ordering processes with a business solution proven to deliver reliable, accurate forecasting and exacting ordering execution.

“In order to support the substantial expansion plans we’ve outlined for ourselves over the next several years, we require an automated business solution,” explained Kaplan. “We expect Store Replenishment to help set a solid foundation for growth while ensuring our shelves are not only full, but completely stocked with the right merchandise assortments to provide our customers’ 100 percent satisfaction.”

Continued Kaplan, “In our search for a replenishment application, we looked at virtually every vendor in the marketplace. We selected Store Replenishment because in the retail space, this product is the most proven and mature product available. With its successful track record with retailers in our same vertical, Store Replenishment is the best brand to manage our unique requirements.”

Commenting on the implementation at Lakeshore Learning Peter Charness, JDA’s senior vice president, global marketing and chief product officer stated, “We welcome Lakeshore Learning to our growing list of clients using our proven forecasting and replenishment solutions.
