Fuji adds Manugistics system to serve retail stores

Published on .

Rockville, Md.--Fuji Photo Film, Elmsford, N.Y., is planning to launch a system designed to improve its relationships with retail stores. The film manufacturer has started installation of, and will launch in May, a system from Manugistics Group, Rockville, Md., that shares production plans and receives order data from large retailers. The price of the customized system was undisclosed, but implementations of this type--often called collaborative planning forecasting and replenishment (CPFR) systems--typically cost more than $1 million. A key customer of Fuji, Wal-Mart Stores, Bentonville, Ark., has historically demanded that suppliers take responsibility for their products on store shelves by responding quickly to orders and reacting to unexpected spikes in sales.
