Exciting Retail solution

What our retail ERP solution can do for you

Our retail management solution of choice is an all-in-one system that extends Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central (Microsoft’s number 1 ERP solution) with the industry specific functionality of LS Retail's LS Central solution to provide one single platform financials, Point of Sale (POS), store operations, supply chain management, inventory, e-commerce, and customer loyalty.

This means you can use just one unified commerce software to do everything you need, instead of many separate ones that only do a part of the job. In other words:

  • Stop wasting hours looking for information across different databases
  • Stop doing the same work many times on different software
  • Have data in one place, and see how your business is doing at a glance
  • Understand what to do to cut costs, grow revenue and increase loyalty
