Jesta I.S.’s Wholesale Solution System will be PUMA’s new technology platform
Montreal, QC – November 5, 2013 – Jesta I.S., a global leading provider of enterprise business solutions, announced today that PUMA North America, the sport lifestyle company that designs, develops, and retails footwear, apparel, and accessories, has partnered with Jesta I.S.’ Vision Sourcing & Demand Management in Canada; thereby expanding Jesta I.S.’s reach and network in the North American market.
PUMA will utilize the Vision Sourcing & Demand Management to harmonize systems in both the United States and Canada and power the wholesale enterprise with one unified solution. As one of the largest brands in the world, PUMA moves goods at warp speed in this demand-driven market and therefore, it is imperative that operations move swiftly from phase to phase, rid of lags, double work and disparate solution systems that don’t get along. Jesta I.S.’s Wholesale system effectively manages the process of goods being supplied and distributed at the optimal level of quality control.
“Expanding our partnership with Jesta will be a great opportunity for our Canadian Subsidiary,” said Jon Vacca, Senior Vice President of Customer Relations and IT of PUMA North America. “There are few enterprise level solutions that are known to be flexible and cost-effective and Jesta is and has been a great partner. PUMA North America has relied on Jesta to meet our core ERP needs for years and this success has fostered a confidence that can now be extended over the border. I am pleased we will have the opportunity to develop more synergy between the US and Canadian businesses using Jesta as a common platform.”
Jesta I.S. and PUMA North America have been partners for nearly ten years, where Jesta’s Wholesale solution system, Vision Sourcing & Demand Management, has been utilized to thrive in an increasingly competitive apparel and footwear industry to cut costs, streamline workflow, and offer the best possible customer service in the United States. Vision Sourcing & Demand Management empowers PUMA North America with full visibility and automation across their entire supply chain. This enables PUMA North American with unified control over the procurement of raw materials, production of goods, inventory management and allocation of their merchandise. Jesta’s Wholesale solution mitigates redundancies and streamlines business processes, yielding a tighter and more profitable operation.
“We are thrilled that after much success with our solution in the United States, PUMA North America has extended our partnership across Canada as well,” said Moris Chemtov, President of Jesta I.S. “Our wholesale solution, built by and developed for the apparel, footwear, and accessories industries, working with PUMA’s cutting edge business model makes for a formidable combination.”
