Jesta IS Launches Global Product Development and Sourcing Software Advances to Combat Supply Chain Disruption


MONTREAL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jesta IS Inc., a global developer of modular cloud solutions and unified ERP for retailers, e-tailers, wholesalers and branded manufacturers, has launched Vision Sourcing & Demand 22.0, a major upgrade of one of his four fundamental software pillars. Vision S&D 22.0 is packed with new features, functionality, and integrations to optimize product journeys from sourcing and procurement, material resource planning, product data and lifecycle management, demand forecasting, and customer order management, as well as B2B/B2C sales and customer service.

New product development tools include the ability to bulk manage new and current product attributes, including purchase, manufacturing, and current/future availability details, as well as the ability to assign images and extended text (fabric composition, care instructions, Amazon-specific information, description formatting) to multiple products for online stores. The tools improve efficiency by helping manufacturers send new catalogs and products to sales channels faster. The new catalogs make it easy for manufacturers to include experiential product details to help consumers with their purchasing decisions.

New sourcing tools include the ability to easily create and manage raw material purchase orders allowing for faster turnaround of raw material sourcing and distribution to factories and supplier networks. Another significant development is Jesta’s new Global Supply Chain Collaboration Center. It transforms the way manufacturers and branded wholesalers work with overseas and nearby production plants by facilitating direct, real-time, two-way communication. The collaboration tool enhances supply chain agility and enables rapid redirection of sourcing and manufacturing to alternate suppliers and factories when challenges arise to preserve global delivery expectations.

Sales channel management and customer service enhancements include: Quick Order Entry (a fast way to take orders over the phone with full search capabilities and real-time information on current/future availability and discounts on volume); product close-out management (the ability to mass manage end-of-life promotions and close-out prices, and generate customer orders at the discounted price) and a robust customer order API framework (a transparent way and more standardized way of entering B2B and B2C customer orders in the Vision ERP resulting in fewer errors and rejections).

Arvind Gupta, President of Jesta IS, said, “Compressing the time from design to delivery of new products and connecting wholesalers and retailers directly to overseas manufacturers through Jesta’s global cloud collaboration platform will transform product journeys, minimize supply chain challenges and provide brand manufacturers and wholesalers with the agility to optimize time to market to meet rapidly changing consumer demand. All global users will benefit from real-time updates and an open and accessible channel to ask questions and take action. »

“Sales and customer service representatives will also be empowered, which will lead to a better customer experience, customer retention and increased sales,” he continued. “The launch of V22 has strategically taken product journeys to the next level of agility.”
