I'm Larry Blitz, editor of Technology Evaluation Centers’ (TEC) Vendor Showdown series. Welcome to our latest: ERP - Distribution Showdown. You’ll notice this one has a broader focus than Showdowns we’ve done in the past. Again we’ll be comparing three vendor solutions head-to-head, but not just on functionality. This time we’ll also look at the industries these solutions support, how well they cover different portions of the mid-market segment, and how their installed bases break out geographically. Of course, functionality is again a key component of this Showdown, broken down into four main distribution areas and 13 subareas. We hope you find today’s Showdown helpful and informative, and invite your comments and questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Only 10 percent of its revenues come from the low end of the mid-market segment ($51 to $100 million [USD]). In terms of its customer base, JDA is very much North Americanâ€“based, with almost 70 percent of its business coming from North American customers, with most of the balance in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and very little in Asia.
