JDA Software Group Becomes a Friend of the Cornell Center for Hospitality Research

JDA Is New Corporate Affiliate of School of Hotel Administration

Ithaca, NY, January 25, 2010 – JDA Software Group, Inc. is the newest corporate friend of the Cornell Center for Hospitality Research (CHR), and has already started its support of the CHR's efforts to share useful research with the hospitality industry. JDA is a leading provider of pricing and revenue management solutions to the travel, transport and hospitality industries, and has been helping top hospitality companies improve their revenue and profitability for more than two decades.

As a friend of the center, JDA provides support for the CHR's outreach efforts, both financially and through its media outlets. JDA is supporting the Cornell Icon of the Industry Award dinner in New York City in June 2010 and the Cornell Reception at the ALIS Conference in San Diego on January 26. JDA was also a key sponsor of Cornell's November 2009 Dean's Leadership Series meeting in New York City.

"JDA Software's expertise in the hospitality industry makes it an excellent fit as a CHR corporate affiliate. In fact, Cornell contributed a bylined article that is published in the January 2010 edition of JDA's semi-annual Real Results magazine," said Jennifer Macera, CHR associate director. "This article, which will also be available at the ALIS Conference, discusses the CHR research on competitive rate setting."

"JDA is pleased to be working with the School of Hotel Administration and the CHR," said Andy Archer, JDA's regional vice president, services industries. "Given JDA's extensive experience in providing innovation for the hospitality industry, we see our affiliation as a logical step in our efforts to share information and thought leadership with the industry."
