  • Jesta I.S. Inc., a leading developer and provider of modular cloud solutions and unified ERP for omnichannel retailers, wholesalers and brand manufacturers is excited to announce that Harry Rosen, Canada’s top luxury menswear retailer, has implemented and gone live on Jesta’s cloud Warehouse Management System (WMS).

    Following the recent transformation of its digital business with successful results, Harry Rosen embarked on a mission to streamline time-consuming manual tasks at its warehouse to accelerate omnichannel fulfillment. Jesta’s WMS will improve inventory management at Harry Rosen’s warehouse, including the inbound and outbound movement of merchandise. Jesta’s WMS will also allow Harry Rosen to eliminate paper-based tasks, enabling greater efficiency.

    Founded in Toronto in 1954, Harry Rosen has become a powerhouse in Canadian retail with 17 stores across the country and a robust e-commerce offering. Jesta’s WMS is transforming their warehouse in several ways:

    • Direct putaway enables warehouse staff to immediately move incoming inventory into their allocated spaces for maximum efficiency
    • Optimized picking paths make the picking and packing process faster for allocation and omnichannel orders
    • Mobile devices guide pickers to optimal locations and validate the pick, which accelerates all outbound movements including bulk transfers and omni fulfillment
    • The system supports the management of various product package types (hanging, flat, bulk), thus optimizing the pick, pack and ship process
    • Flexible ticketing and tagging capabilities speed up workflows

    Stephen Jackson, EVP and CIO at Harry Rosen, said: “Harry Rosen serves many customer journeys through our website, and we recognized the need to pick, pack and ship items quicker than ever. We’ve invested heavily in logistics and fulfillment technology, and we’re looking forward to how it will support our next phase of growth, which will include same-day and international shipping.”

    “Harry Rosen has relied on Jesta’s Vision Merchandising and Store solutions for many years and we’re excited to strengthen our partnership with their selection of our Warehouse Management System,” said Arvind Gupta, President at Jesta I.S. “Jesta’s WMS delivers real-time inventory visibility and robust mobile functionality, while integrating seamlessly with other systems. It optimizes inbound and outbound shipments whether single-parcel, direct-to-consumer omnichannel orders or store replenishment for better shopping experiences overall.”

    Vision 22 introduces many new features and includes significant enhancements across its four foundational areas of focus. The powerful new capabilities will optimize supply chains and product journeys from concept to consumer by improving communication across global partner networks, accelerating new and bulk merchandise distributions, empowering consumers with cross-channel self-service and on-demand shopping capabilities, equipping businesses with robust analytics, and much more.

    Jesta’s Vision 22 addresses the urgency for supply chain transparency, collaboration and agility, and allows users to act at every step of the product journey. Exciting features include:

    Arvind Gupta, President of Jesta I.S., said: “Jesta’s Vision 22 is set to optimize vertical brands and retailers’ end-to-end supply chain operations worldwide. The Jesta solution stack seamlessly connects global networks and enables businesses to drive product journeys more quickly and effectively while simultaneously addressing the needs of the next-generation consumer.”

  • Jesta I.S. Inc., a global developer of modular cloud solutions and unified ERP for retailers, e-tailers, wholesalers, and brand manufacturers, has launched Vision Sourcing & Demand 22.0, a major upgrade to one of its four foundational 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, and B2B/B2C sales and customer service.

    New product development tools include the capability to mass manage attributes for new and current products, including purchase, manufacturing, and current/future availability details, as well as the capability to assign images and extended text (fabric composition, care instructions, Amazon-specific description formatting) to multiple products for web stores. The tools boost efficiency helping manufacturers get new catalogues and products to sales channels faster. The new catalogues make it easy for manufacturers to include experiential product details to help consumers with purchasing decisions.

    New procurement tools include the capability to easily create and manage draw-down raw material purchase orders enabling quicker turnaround of procurement and distribution of raw materials to factories and supplier networks. Jesta’s new global supply chain collaboration hub is another significant advancement. It transforms how brand manufacturers and wholesalers work with overseas and near-shore production factories by facilitating direct, real-time, bi-directional communication. The collaboration tool boosts supply chain agility, and enables procurement and manufacturing to be quickly redirected to alternate suppliers and factories when challenges arise so global delivery expectations are preserved.

    Sales channel management and customer service enhancements include: rapid-order entry (a fast way to take telephone orders featuring comprehensive search capabilities and real-time information on current/future availability and volume-tier discounts); product closeout management (the ability to mass manage end-of-life promotions and closeout pricing, and generate sales orders at the discounted price) and a robust sales order API framework (a seamless and more standardized way to enter B2B and B2C sales orders into the Vision ERP resulting in fewer errors and rejections).

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

    “Sales and customer service reps will be empowered as well, leading to better customer experiences, customer retention and increased sales,” he continued. “The V22 launch has strategically taken product journeys to the next level of agility.”

  • Wholesale and Distribution
    Oversee Every Detail From Raw Materials to Finished Goods...

  • In order to stay ahead of varying customer demand while maintaining profitability, wholesalers need to efficiently plan ahead to purchase earlier, in bulk, and at lower costs, and deliver on time. This involves accurately tracking purchase orders, the movement of parts on the way to becoming finished goods, expected material delivery dates, production schedule, shipping and packing, and comparing it with current customer orders and forecasted demand.

    Benefit from Real-Time Visibility at Every Step: Importing > Manufacturing > Planning > Sales > Distribution

    For the ordering, manufacturing, fulfilling and billing processes to function smoothly, every detail needs to be tracked and accounted for. This way, you can correctly plan and automate the optimal timing of purchases and delivery to customers, keeping your customers satisfied while reducing your own inventory costs.

  • Retail Planning & Merchandising
    Give Your Customers What They Want, Anytime and Anywhere...

  • Retail Planning

    A store rack that’s often full of extra-small T-shirts, but consistently devoid of, say, mediums is a sure sign that someone’s retail planning is out of whack. When done successfully, retail planning makes sure that in-demand items in an optimal assortment of colors and sizes are always available in the stores that are likely to sell them fast.

    Jesta’s retail planning solutions ensure that T-shirts of all sizes get customer love by providing buyers, inventory managers and merchandisers with a centralized, 360° real-time view of stock, sales performance, store capabilities and selling patterns, and shopper histories. Decision-makers can then build precise market segments, product ranges and price lines to tightly align your offerings — T-shirts and otherwise — with the locations, channels and customers that demand them. Sales increase, markdowns decrease, stock-to-sales ratios equalize.

    In addition to exhaustive inventory planning, Jesta’s retail planning solutions provide end-to-end financial support. The integrated platform enables you to connect your OTB with your margin targets accounting for price, promotions and markdowns throughout the season, and allowing you to change course and explore other growth possibilities when desires shift.

    You’ve pondered, predicted and planned, and now it’s finally time for Jesta’s retail merchandising solutions to kick your business game prep into play.

    Jesta’s merchandising solutions execute all of your strategic plans automatically for consistency, reliability and maximum efficiency, while also affording you the power to review and adjust algorithms when trends change and demands shift.

  • Supply Chain
    Move Merchandise from Suppliers to Shoppers - Simply....

  • Remember the good old days when you’d meet your suppliers face-to-face? Today, your vendors are in Barcelona, Beijing, maybe even Brisbane, and you probably can’t put a face to any names. Jesta’s supply chain solutions can’t get you face time with your global vendors, but we can optimize your communications with them as well as with your agents, transport partners and logistics associates worldwide.

    Our supply chain solutions provide 360° visibility of the procurement process from day one. Global partners from the Eastern to the Western Worlds, regardless of time zones, have access to the same real-time order details, shipping and tracking information, and location statuses (whether orders are on land, water, air, at the border or warehouse) through one centralized platform. Every partner has the ability to add updates too.

    Complete transparency and a holistic methodology streamlines coordination and strengthens collaboration throughout the entire supply chain by keeping all external parties informed and up-to-date 24/7. What’s more, Jesta’s Vision Suite systems are automated and integrated so new orders in our Order Management omnichannel solution, for instance, are dynamically synced with our Vendor Portal supply chain solution instantaneously. No manual input, no mistakes.

  • Analytics
    Turn Your Business Data Into Business Insight...

  • Retailers are making data-driven decisions now more than ever. Today, customers are shopping in-store, online, through mobile apps and via social media.
