In addition to placing seventh in the coveted Top 20 overall and No. 1 in four prominent categories, the Montreal-based company placed in the Top 5 in 13 additional categories: Midsize Vendor Leaders (5); Customer Satisfaction for Midsize Vendors (4); Customer Satisfaction for Broad Suite Vendors (3); Apparel Vendor Leaders (4); Apparel Vendors in Customer Satisfaction (4); Top Vendors for Tier-One Retailers (4); Top Vendors in Customer Satisfaction (4); Top Vendors in Retail Concentration (4); Leaders in Overall Performance (2); Leaders in Total Cost of Operation (3); Leaders in Quality of Support (3); Leaders in Quality of Service (2); Leaders in Recommendation (3).

Retailers should clearly take notice of Jesta's outstanding 2019 RIS LeaderBoard results."
“I’m thrilled and extremely proud about Jesta’s placement in the 2019 Software LeaderBoard,” said Moris Chemtov, President of Jesta I.S. “Our clients have always been our number one priority and recognition in terms of customer satisfaction is truly rewarding.
