Montreal, QC, Canada (July 6, 2023) – Jesta I.S. is excited to announce a series of transformative new capabilities for global manufacturers and wholesalers specializing in apparel, footwear and accessories that improve critical supply chain management and wholesale operations. Powerful new enhancements to Jesta’s Supply Chain Management Suite resolve major industry challenges, including lack of visibility, sluggish speed to market and client dissatisfaction. They provide Jesta I.S. clients with robust capabilities needed to perform operational processes more efficiently strengthening their overall agility and ability to compete across all channels.
Jesta I.S. has provided global manufacturers and wholesalers with advanced capabilities to fulfill multichannel B2B and B2C orders much more efficiently, enhancing business deliverables and Service Level Agreements overall. In addition to extended visibility across the entire supply chain, including both current and future inventory availability for even faster fulfillment, the ability to more easily extend product personalization and customization capabilities offers brands the opportunity to take the direct-to-consumer (DTC) experience to the next level. The new features include Order Express Fulfillment, a reimagined rapid Order Management System, and a headless commerce API for channel agnostic order creation.
Jesta’s e-commerce Order Express Fulfillment notifies users about Direct-to-Consumer order prioritization. Designed to significantly improve Click-to-Ship times for multichannel e-commerce order fulfillment, this feature empowers customer service and allocation teams to fulfill high-priority e-commerce orders in less than one hour using rule-based algorithms. This rapid response exceeds industry expectations for e-commerce order fulfillment time leading to improved customer satisfaction.
Addressing the vital need for sales order visibility, Jesta I.S. has developed an advanced omnichannel sales order management portal within the Supply Chain Management Suite. This powerful capability, leveraged by customer service teams, provides real-time insight into the status of sales orders and related inventory across the entire supply chain. The capability to view and act on order fulfillment issues, such as stock-outs, enables users to pivot and leverage existing and inbound supply across channels to substantially improve the ability to compete.
Lastly, Jesta’s new Sales Order API provides a swift method to bring sales orders from all channels and marketplaces into Jesta’s Supply Chain Management Suite, eliminating the need for EDI transactions. This not only speeds up the process of inbound sales orders, but also negates the necessity to configure or support an EDI infrastructure, resulting in significant savings in time, money, and resources. The API offers immediate and ongoing value, impacting both the Sales Order and Allocation aspects of the suite.
Arvind Gupta, President, Jesta I.S. said: “Jesta I.S.’s latest supply chain and wholesale management enhancements were built on a profound understanding of the industry, business users, and current global challenges, and underscore our commitment to delivering features that offer real, measurable value to our clients. We’re confident that these advancements will streamline operations, meet customer expectations, and deliver a considerable competitive advantage.”
