Dallas, TX, U.S. - May 8, 2019 - Panasonic Corporation is demonstrating its range of solutions for supply chain management at JDA Software, Inc.'s annual global customer conference JDA ICON, which is being held May 7-10, 2019 in Dallas, Texas (U.S.A.). Leveraging its strong partnership with JDA, Panasonic will have the opportunity to connect directly with companies from JDA's impressive list of customers and partners, and demonstrate how Panasonic can utilize its integrated solutions to provide technology capabilities that embrace and extend JDA's leading solutions portfolio.

JDA ICON is the leading conference for supply chain and retail executives, which includes keynote speeches from heads of some of the largest brands in the world, a range of special interest group meetings on pressing industry topics, as well as an exhibition area for innovative technologies. As a Diamond sponsor of the event, Panasonic is highlighted within the Innovation Zone exhibition space enabling the company to introduce its products and solutions to the more than 2,000 delegates of JDA's customer base which includes the largest retailers, manufacturers, logistics companies and distributors from around the globe. Furthermore, Yasu Higuchi, CEO of Panasonic's B2B business, Connected Solutions Company, joined JDA's CEO, Mr. Girish Rishi, during the latter's keynote speech on the first day of the conference to talk about how the partnership aims to deliver operational enhancements to customers worldwide.

Also, on May 6, Panasonic took part in the first-ever JDA DEVCON event for developers, engineers and coders, where the company explained the joint solutions it has created with JDA to relevant parties.

By combining Panasonic's world-class sensing technologies and edge devices with JDA's comprehensive SaaS software portfolio that span end-to-end supply chain management, the two companies are creating new, cutting-edge solutions for businesses in the manufacturing, logistics and retails fields; and in doing so, are bringing about innovations in customers' frontline processes. These solutions combine the JDA® LuminateTM software portfolio with Panasonic's Visual Sort AssistTM system, out-of-stock detection, flowline analytics, and facial recognition technology. Along with these integrated solutions, Panasonic will also be showing at JDA ICON how its mobile solutions, including the TOUGHBOOK series and voice picking technology can contribute to enhanced supply chain operations.

In January 2019, the two companies announced a partnership to develop integrated solutions. Since then, the companies have continued to strengthen ties and have exhibited the solutions together at the NRF Big Show in New York and Retail Tech Japan in Tokyo. The two companies recently announced on April 1 an agreement to establish a joint venture company in Japan to promote sales of their integrated solutions. Panasonic's participation in and support of the JDA ICON conference serves to further strengthen the companies' relationship and promote the solutions.
