LS Retail will exhibit its latest software solutions at NRF Retail’s Big Show, the world’s leading annual retail event that will take place in New York on January 13-15, 2019. At booth #3073, the LS Retail experts will showcase LS Nav on Business Central, the unified commerce system for retail and hospitality now available on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the ERP running in the intelligent cloud
Dynamics 365 Business Central is Microsoft’s newest incarnation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV, one of the most installed mid-market ERP systems in the world.
Business Central harnesses the power of the Microsoft intelligent cloud to boost businesses’ efficiency, speed and innovation. The system also offers seamless integration with the other tools in the Dynamics 365 stack such as Microsoft Office 365, PowerBI, Flow, and PowerApps.
LS Nav, for all sectors of retail and hospitality
LS Nav on Business Central adds deep retail and hospitality capabilities to all the tools already available in Business Central. The system includes in-depth, specialized functionality for retail and food service businesses within sectors as diverse as grocery, electronics, fashion and apparel, furniture, hardware and DIY, pharmacy, health and beauty, bookstores, confectionery, jewelry, resorts and theme parks, restaurants and cafés.
LS Nav on Business Central can be deployed in the cloud, on-premises, or as a hybrid solution. The hybrid deployment model has become increasingly popular in the business world: research firm Gartner predicts that by 2020, cloud usage will mostly be hybrid.
Making retail an experience
“Today’s retailers need to keep consumers engaged with personalized, fresh experiences. This means going beyond the traditional boundaries of retail with in-store events, pop-up shops, or even new concepts mixing different industries, such as retail and food service or entertainment. To make sure consumer expectations are always met and exceeded, retailers also require systems that give them a 360-degree view of their business and their customers, across all sales channels,” says Magnus Norddahl, CEO and President at LS Retail.
With LS Nav on Business Central, retail and food service businesses can use a single, unified platform to maintain their data, analyze sales trends, track their customers’ behaviors and preferences, and manage sales of retail products, food & beverage, and even events, courses and experiences.
“LS Nav on Business Central is the ideal solution for businesses operating in multiple retail industries, as well as for dynamic enterprises that want to create their own retail format, or explore new avenues for customer engagement,” says Magnus Norddahl. “A fashion retailer could open a café or art gallery in some of its locations, organize in-store fashion shows, hold make-up courses, and manage all these requirements within the same system they use to handle their retail business.”
Smarter decisions with intelligent systems
The use of a single system across the whole enterprise helps businesses cut software integration costs and deliver more consistent customer experiences across all channels. It also enables retailers to oversee and maintain all their business information – including customer, item and sales data – in a consistent, non-redundant way. That highly structured data can then be run through Microsoft’s cloud-based Artificial Intelligence and Business Intelligence tools to get insights and forecasts that help decrease costs and risk, and to simplify daily tasks and decision-making.
Attendees interested in discovering how a unified commerce platform built on intelligence can simplify their business are encouraged to visit booth #3073, and see LS Nav on Business Central first-hand.
