Jamba Juice Selects ArrowStream Software to Accelerate Supply Chain Optimization
Chicago, IL – January 13, 2015 – ArrowStream, Inc. (“ArrowStream”), a Software-as-a-Service provider for supply chain organizations announced today that Jamba Juice Company (‘Jamba Juice’), a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand and the leading retailer of freshly-squeezed juice, has licensed ArrowStream OnDemand to continue supply chain cost-improvement and process simplification efforts.
This new partnership between the two companies is expected to improve and eliminate the manual, complex processes for spend and inventory management by providing the supply chain team at Jamba Juice with OnDemand, a solution that centralizes key supply chain data and streamlines operations. Jamba Juice will also have enhanced visibility into potential inventory challenges with threshold alerts, enabling proactive management to ensure continuity of supply and excellent customer service.
“We are excited to engage ArrowStream as our supply chain software provider”, said Arnaud Joliff, VP, Supply Chain and Operations Services at Jamba Juice. “Their industry-recognized leadership and end-to-end solutions will not only enhance our supply chain management but will also help us improve COGs and profitability through OnDemand’s comprehensive auditing capabilities.”
OnDemand is supported by a single platform that receives data from ArrowStream customers’ key supply chain partners and then merges, cleanses and maps the data into customer specific numbering and naming language. By centralizing the data into one language, Jamba Juice can accurately audit and analyze spend and inventory and ultimately improve Cost of Goods (COGs), supplier communications and profitability.
“OnDemand will help Jamba Juice centralize and manage key performance indicators within their supply chain, enabling a faster, data-driven decision-making organization,” said Jeff Dorr, Chief Customer Officer at ArrowStream. “We are pleased to be selected as one of their strategic partners to continue their profitability growth and collaboration of supply chain processes.”
