Apparel firm Genesco updates to Jesta's latest retail ERP
Dec '16
Jesta I.S. Inc., a leader in integrated ERP solutions for apparel companies, has announced that Genesco Inc., a publicly owned retailer of branded footwear, headwear, and apparel, has successfully upgraded its foundational retail inventory management platform to the latest version of Jesta’s flagship retail ERP system, Vision Merchandising 18.0.

Genesco initially deployed Vision Merchandising in 1998, when it was comprised of less than 500 stores, to support the firm’s exponential growth and empower users to work more efficiently. Today, the company operates more than 1,300 stores through various business segments, including Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, as well as the recently acquired Little Burgundy.

To better serve its customers, Genesco relies on Jesta’s retail application to manage all core merchandising functions for apparel and footwear across most of its banners. This includes the ability to track all store brands in one system using different business units, as well as leverage the robust replenishment and stock optimisations modules. The new release enables the organisation to optimise its stores’ space for more accurate inventory planning, adequate service levels, and minimum out-of-stocks on the shelves amongst other functionalities.

The upgrade lays the foundation for future growth with holistic image management capabilities that will allow the retailer to leverage additional capabilities within the release, including mobile alerts and notifications, sophisticated price management, merchant’s tool box, and advanced allocations features.

Arvind Gupta, COO of Jesta I.S. said, “Genesco is an excellent example of Jesta’s long term commitment to our clients. The relationship we’ve built over the years has grown into a strong partnership that has driven the development of some of the most advanced retail capabilities currently available in the market. I am looking forward to Genesco’s merchants leveraging the new and innovative inventory management capabilities available in Vision Merchandising 18.0. ”

Rik Reitmaier, CIO, Genesco Inc., “Jesta I.S. is an important business and technology partner for Genesco. They have always delivered on their promises, providing us with a rock-solid retail solution that helps maximise our competitive advantage in the marketplace. Vision Merchandising 18.0 does just that. Through this upgrade, we continue to rely on Jesta I.S. as our trusted business technology partner and advisor.” (GK)
