Jesta I.S. Continues Global Expansion in South America

Jesta I.S, a leading provider of enterprise business solutions for retailers and wholesalers, has announced today the launch of a strategic partnership in South America with Grupo Megabyte. Headquartered in Panama, Grupo Megabyte provides turnkey solutions including integrated barcode printing systems, mobile technology, point of sale computers, security systems, and supplies to retailers and wholesalers across South America.

The partnership is aligned with Jesta I.S.’s strategic international business development plan, which has South America designated as one of its main global hubs. The South American apparel and footwear manufacturing/retail market is growing rapidly, however, local ERP software solutions are not providing the necessary capabilities to sustain the developing markets. With the support of Grupo Megabyte, Jesta I.S. has introduced its robust solutions to the industry in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

“Ariel Eskenazi is the founder of Grupo Megabyte and his team has extensive experience in the South American apparel and footwear market. Their knowledge, coupled with Jesta I.S.’s four decades of expertise lays the groundwork for what will surely become a fruitful partnership. Together, I am confident that we will successfully introduce our robust solution suite to the local industry, enabling them to better manage their operations. From product development to production, purchasing, fulfillment, merchandising, store operations and analytics, all of the pieces to an end-to-end-solution will be housed in one single system, eliminating redundancy and inefficiencies,” said Sam Edery, Head of International Business Development at Jesta I.S.

“We are proud to establish our partnership with Jesta I.S. because we will now have a superior solution for our local businesses who need a specialized wholesale and retail solution focused on the apparel, footwear and accessories industries. We will finally have a scalable solution that manages the entire supply chain from beginning to end.” said Ariel Eskenazi, General Manager of Grupo Megabyte.

In the coming months, the Grupo Megabyte team will become certified users of the Jesta I.S. platform in order to support the local customer base. Jesta I.S. commits to growing organically in Latin America, offering local customers not only a robust product, but more importantly, a demonstration of respect toward their cultural priorities and an understanding of their business operations.
