December 28, 2018

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 28, 2018--Jesta I.S. Inc., a global leader in integrated ERP solutions for omnichannel retailing, announced today that Christy Sports, one of the largest winter sports specialty retailers in the U.S., has selected Jesta I.S. as its end-to-end foundational retail suite to support its expansion. The first phase of the implementation is complete with Jesta’s Financials, Merchandising, POS, Mobile, Gift Card and Loyalty modules currently operational across the Christy Sports BootDoctors storefronts.

With over 55 locations in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Washington, Christy Sports is an authority in the outdoor sports industry, providing top-quality services, equipment, apparel and accessories. Focused on strong organic growth and expanding its footprint, Christy Sports has been acquiring similar specialty outdoor sports retailers and is now seeking to optimize operations for their growing list of brands under one platform. The company required a foundational ERP system that would also help them achieve unified visibility of all their omnichannel and retail operations.

In addition to the suite of Jesta modules already in use, Christy Sports will implement Jesta’s Warehouse Management and Analytics solutions, both of which will advance their goal of attaining real-time inventory management across all of their in-store and online banners.

“With our continued growth and acquisitions, Christy Sports needed a partner to work with us from beginning to end to provide a complete omnichannel software solution and also ensure robust implementation and service,” said Matt Gold, Christy Sports CEO.

“The convenience and economies of scale that Jesta I.S. provides by packaging multiple solutions in a single platform will improve our operational excellence and efficiency, and also allow us to further elevate our high levels of guest service and experience,” Mr. Gold continued.
