Oshman's Sporting Goods Inc. Selects JDA Software's MMS and Retail IDEAS.

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 15, 1997--JDA Software Group Inc. (NASDAQ:JDAS), a leading provider of enterprise retail solutions, announced that Oshman's Sporting Goods Inc. (AMEX:OSH), a Houston-based chain of over 100 retail sporting goods specialty stores located primarily in the Sun Belt, licensed JDA's AS/400-based Merchandise Management System(R) (MMS) and Retail IDEAS(TM) data warehouse system.

Commenting on their selection of JDA Software, Skip Klug, vice president of MIS, stated, "We're replacing our outdated, in-house system with JDA's products to help us become a more profitable company. After the systems are live, we hope to increase profit margins and decrease out of stocks with better flow of merchandise to the stores."

Oshman's is just completing a major transformation entailing the closing of 170 traditional sporting goods stores and opening 36 interactive mega stores providing the customer with the opportunity to try the equipment before they buy it.

Klug added, "Now that we have much larger stores, we need to ensure that we're effectively managing our soft and hard lines and efficiently getting product to our stores to meet customer demand.

"JDA's systems are the best fit to help us do this because they will enable us to collect and analyze data at a detailed level and use such functionality as distribution, RF/Picking capabilities and allocation."

Stated JDA Chief Operating Officer Brent W. Lippman, "The integration between MMS and Retail IDEAS enables retailers such as Oshman's to access information that they need to make informed decisions and proactively pursue opportunities to increase their competitive advantage.

"We are pleased to welcome Oshman's to our family of clients who have selected Retail IDEAS along with MMS and look forward to being a part of helping them achieve their goals."

Oshman's is scheduled to go live with MMS by the first half of 1998 and plans to provide 100 users with access to the Retail IDEAS data warehouse for decision and action support by the end of 1998.
