Vision Central Portal
Vision Central Portal (VCP) functions as a single point of entry for all the Vision Suite products: Vision Sourcing & Demand, Vision Merchandising, Vision Store &Omnichannel, and Vision Analytics. Jesta’s four main products and all of their associated modules are incorporated under VCP.
The VCP home screen consists of widgets where you can save your most frequently used menu options and reports. The menu options can be organized according to your daily, weekly or monthly tasks; the widgets can be arranged and swapped according to your preferences.
The Vision Central features
Answers: Answers is for quick business insights, which is especially useful for businesses that don’t have an Analytics solution. Users can create and schedule public or private reports that run automatically using real-time data pulled from the Vision Suite modules. The reports can be extracted into an Excel document and scheduled to be emailed. They can also be viewed on any mobile device.
Reports:Out-of-the-box reports, some with drilldown capabilities, are available in VCP: PO Review by Style, Summary of Open POs, Site Inventory Stock Status, Stock Ledger Details and more. The reports can be grouped together by topic (Sales Reports, for example), department (Merchandising, for instance) or even under a specific business role (like Buyer).
Alerts:VCP users can create alerts based on their own pre-defined business rules. Alerts prompt users when an event that may impact business operations requires immediate attention or when a task has been assigned to them. Alerts can appear on the home screen, be sent as an email or as a mobile notification.
Smart and Custom Query:The Smart Query tool gives users the ability to filter data and narrow in on specific merchandise; the results appear in Vision Merchandising’s Item Management feature. For example, a user can create a Smart Query to retrieve a carousel of the top 10 performing blouses without having to manually sort through and compare mountains of information themselves.
The Custom Query tool displays additional information about an item that is not a standard detail in the Item Management style card.

Among the most notable is that the solution is now cloud-ready and browser-based, certified on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Also, Vision Suite 20.0 is usable on mobile devices making the software accessible anywhere, anytime.
Lastly, each and every one of Jesta’s modules have now been incorporated under Vision Central Portal, a widget-based solution that functions as a single point of entry for all the Vision Suite products a client owns. Its customizable home screen features a dashboard that provides an overview of menu favorites, reports, alerts and more.

Vision Merchandising includes Jesta’s Retail Planning and Retail Merchandising solutions.
