SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., September 08, 2009--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JDA® Software Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: JDAS), the leading provider of Price Sensitive Revenue Management technology for the service-based transportation industry, today announced that it will unveil new revenue management strategies that freight and passenger rail operators across North America can implement to realize true business transformation at Terrapinn’s USA Rail 2009 conference in Chicago, Sept. 9 to 11. During the conference, JDA Software’s Anand Medepalli, vice president, transportation industry strategy, will present the “Real Results from Pricing and Revenue Management for Passenger Rail and Freight Operators” session on Sept. 10 from 10:50-11:20 a.m. Central, which will make the case for pricing and revenue management as a fundamental requirement to the success of rail companies. The session will also highlight best practices and successful revenue management strategies adopted by leading passenger rail and freight companies to improve revenue, yield and efficiency.

With more than 20 years of delivering ground-breaking revenue optimization technology to leading companies around the globe, JDA Software is taking revenue management to a new level with its next-generation Price Sensitive Revenue Management (PSRM) solution. While traditional revenue management technology produces forecasts based on the assumption that prices stay more or less constant, PSRM is designed to address today’s business challenge of operating in a fluid, dynamic pricing environment. Rail operators leveraging PSRM can benefit from a market-wide view of demand for all products and services, enabling the entire organization to operate using one forecast that has been generated across pricing, revenue management, capacity planning, sales and marketing, and the overall budget-planning processes.

“We look forward to USA Rail 2009, where we will showcase how our international passenger rail and cargo freight operator customers have been able to successfully embed pricing and revenue management solutions into their day-to-day processes. As a result, these companies have experienced dramatic benefits in terms of revenue increases and efficiency gains,” said Andy Archer, group vice president, services industries, JDA Software.
