All-in one Retail Solution for a plug and play action

Retail Business in Sri Lanka is not well-managed when it comes to Resource Planning and Finance Management. Sri Lankan IT Industry is highly competitive in introducing a modernly made Retail Management Software Solution to make things go ahead in Retail sales industry with efficiency and good standard, and herewith LS Retail and its business logic designs as an Implementation person I did see bigger advantages to follow a well-developed framework. LS Retail was a Thumbs up from both the Implementer and the End-Customer.

Pros

Wide-spread Configuration capability is a huge plus point selecting this as the main Retail Solution for a Retail operations-driven Business or an Enterprise. LS Retail has the capability to deploy as a vertical software solution for Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Business Central which makes the solution proposals more competent and viable. In terms of UI/UX, the user-friendliness is an achieved goal metrics here at LS Retail.

Cons

Although the capacity to configure the system is given at a performable level as a Deployer I am keen for good development capabilities to be carried out, overlayed or extended. At the moment the pricing structure is not that viable for South Asian Market from implementation and proposal development experience.

We had the chance to implement LS. NAV Version 800.03 and version 900.05 at different client...

Reviewed on 27/03/2018

Pros

The screen is intuitive and easy to use. The functionality does not seem overwhelming or hard to understand. It pack with features and also works with different variation type of retailers- a pure retail store and or hospitality type. It can all be taken care by one system. You can also customize the application to fit your needs such as hide features for some users or also integrate new functionality such as payment integration. I like that it is web enabled which means that a retailer that want to have an Omni channel system can integrate their econmerce to this back office

Cons

Support or response are very slow from LS. Also for any fixes and hot fixes they provide is one the latest version of Dynamics NAV. This means that it is very hard to retrofit hotfixes from one version to the other. A good example are from version 900.03 to the newer 10.00.05. The fixes were not evident or detailed as it should have been. Also the software seems to be over promised. There are features listed that although present - does not fully cover the necessity of the client. A good example is again on version9.00.05 which although advertised as have a good coverage for hospitality- restaurant/bar, there were lots of issues or limitation of the software. The software may allow you to do some configurations and suggest some functionality but it does not work in the context of North America or lead to hard errors with system crash. Such errors were found and are still present in their split bill function for example. The cost is high as well since it is built on top of the dynamics nav stack.

Pros

The ability for the software solution to work for you straight out of the box and then provide the adaptability and also extensive modularity is amazing.

Cons

The lack of a Human Resources aspect. Well there is HR involved but its very limited.

LS Nav is a high quality solution from a top retail partner

Reviewed on 11/04/2018

I used LS NAV in the Retail and was part of the implementation process. It is easy to lean and has a very intuitive user interface that most people get familiar with very quickly. It is customizable and in the lower end of the price range for the features you get. However customization can get expensive if you need features that are not out of the box.

Pros

Seamless integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, highly configurable point of sale user interface, the promotions (discount offers, mix/match, happy hour, buy x get y free, etc.) works very well and is very intuitive once you have used it for a little bit, LS Retail is constantly investing in their solution

Cons

No Security related to tables, Transaction margin, If you customize too much Microsoft Dynamics NAV you can have problems down the line.
The inbuilt reports feature is not fantastic.

Good Product with Valuable Price

Reviewed on 08/08/2019

LS Retail is company that provide a solutions focusing in retail and hospitality. I am using one of their product, LS NAV. The product was very rich features and functionality, its suite to any business process that i am facing for all client. Whenever, the client has a specific requirement, the system can be customized with some effort. Rich features always means high complexity. And, the product is quite expensive for small retail business. But, overall the system is fine.

Pros

Rich features and functionality, stable because it's an add-on on top of Dynamics NAV/365 BC that strong in the accounting.
Configurable with needed of good knowledge of the system.

Cons

The support team is not really helpful. Quite expensive product.

An active enhancement plan is a vital part of making the most of LS Retail solution, whether it's LS Nav, LS One, or LS First. There are many benefits of being on active enhancement plan that many retailers do not realize, and re-enrolling as a lapsed customer can be costly and time-consuming. With an active enhancement plan, you can provide an excellent customer experience that doesn't end after the license has been purchased.

Pros

The most I like with LS NAV software is the compatibility with other modules. End-to-End business process.

Cons

The least that I like with LS NAV is the monthly update of fix objects, which I don't find it easy for me to catch up regularly since I'm on a project phase.

Reviewed on 30/03/2018

Pros

It is adaptive, flexible architecture. Easy to develop customisations and deployment. simplicity of Pos Features. Integrated application to Inventory and Finance. Discounts , Promotions, Loyalty module. Multiple templates in demo data.

Cons

POS Configuration such as panels & design is quite complicated for users to grasp. Also it is not easy for customers to absorb.
Replenishment setups needs lots of visualisation, setups take time, data maintenance is complicated. Lack of tools such as label printing configurator, OPOS Receipt configurator.
Promotions have performance issues for large retailers. Product maintenance is time consuming. Mass update of products is unavailable. Special orders are quite complicated and need to be simplified. Loyalty needs more profiling . Vouchers and Gift cards needs more details, using web services is not consistent due to traffic in Transaction server work table bottleneck.
Staff management need to simplified for users usage. LS Hospitality KDS has lots of issues still not addressed for years.
Licensing is expensive compare to other competitive products in the market which is most important and losing against the competitive products with lots of easy maintenance features.

LS Retail Review

Reviewed on 31/07/2019

For businesses who need to manage stores in different location and have data replicated centrally to the head office for financial management, LS Retail is a good choice.

Some modules for LS Retail still have bugs, it requires partners who have development team to help to fix during implementation because of the limited resource of LS Retail internal development team.

Pros

The functionality LS Retail provide covers all the aspects of retail businesses.

Cons

Complicated. For some retail business, LS Retail will be super complicated. Other software like ChargeLogic Retail can be considered.

- Data Director is the best tool
- Scaleable software
- Priority on offers

Cons

- Promotion, ex. birthday promotion, every of my customers complain on this a lot. Coz, the system you will trigger this only exact date of end customer birthday, which not good enough. Normally, they want option like 1. be Month Birthday or +- 15 days from end customer's birthday
- On Mobile, local software can support on this a lot esp. hospitality
- Web POS, quite slow
- Hardware, your system required spect of hardware that very high performance esp. Store DB
- Customer wants wise Retail on POS, they want the system to suggest what end customers should purchase
- Loss prevention should include in standard, the price is too high
- Still have some bugs
- 3 levels of items are not enough. (Division, Category, Product group)
- Auto post statement, imagine if there are more than 50+ store, a user have to come to post statement every morning, it is not practical to do. You should provide setup to do that and if not success should send email

The discount feature is not robust. It does not offer much usage flexibility and becomes a bottleneck in the current dynamic environment when both brick & mortar establishments with e-Commerce are moving in ahead jointly in such volatile and cut throat retail industry business.
