The research highlights that 60 percent of organizations report their business model is under critical or significant pressure to adapt to changing market conditions, with one-third concerned that the pressure could threaten the survival of their business within 36 months. A majority of companies surveyed identified a new model for growth by using commerce expertise combined with the right personalized experience for the customer. Two-thirds of respondents recognize that creating the right personalized content for their customers is how they can take on the big brands.

Jesta I.S. Launches Global Product Development and Procurement Software Advancements to Tackle Supply Chain Disruption

Jesta I.S. | August 29, 2022

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). “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.” Arvind Gupta, President at Jesta I.S. “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.” About Jesta I.S.
