In January 2000, Richter Systems announced that it had changed its name to Essentus, thus highlighting the company's move to a global provider of "essential" solutions targeting the wholesale, manufacturing, and retail management of soft goods. Essentus offers three primary solutions. The Essentus Vision Suite is an Oracle-based "best of breed" solution that provides retail supply-chain management and wholesale/manufacturing supply-chain management. To this end, the Vision Suite provides the necessary Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to accommodate Financials and Warehouse Management System (WMS) applications. Essentus Express is an integrated solution with financials and warehouse functionality included in the base package. fashionchain.com, as a separate operating business unit within Essentus, is dedicated to providing a Web-based supply-chain management solution.
