Implementing LS-NAV always went smooth. The latest developments are a real addition to LS-NAV.

The ease of use makes the difference!

Pros

It has a lot to offer out-of-the box and on top of that it is really easy to customize for that demanding customer. The help that is available from LS (academy, consultancy, help-desk) was a bit unknown to me, but since we got in contact it is that "+1" for me.

Cons

It can be a bit overwhelming for first-time users, but also for junior consultants. But at the same time it is easy to learn.

Working with LS retail since last 17 years long journey with summary below.

Amazing product with both pros and cons. Product carries history with great experience from implementers. As a core product there are lots of features missing for mid-size retailers. Other competitive products in the market supply lot of these features and we haven’t seen in LS yet.
LS central become lot more difficult to Quicker deployments with customisations and lot of dependencies and also un availability of LS Retail support
I know LS is investing lot of inputs but it is not catching up with market speed.

Pros

1. Built on Business Central
2. Compatible with SQL
3. Uses Microsoft AZURE & Cloud
4. Rich features with integrated ERP
5. Best fit for mid and small retailers and quick setups to go live
6. Good replication tool
7. etc. etc. i have a massive list to go

Cons

1. NOT User friendly on POS configurations, too many complicated setups involved behind scenes
2. NOT easy to install and deploy
3. Hard for low end retailers to maintain and manage
4. Lack of training materials in latest versions.
5. Lack of integration to other channel platforms.
6. Lack of localisations in some countries and partners are not up to date.

LS Retail for Supermarkets

Pros

I do not know of any product that comes close to LS Retail when it comes to super/hyper markets. It can be setup as online or offline cash registers. Synchronization with HQ is extensive. Promotions and offers are extensive. User interface is fully customizable. It's an end-to-end solution that works on top of Microsoft Dynamics NAV which makes everything seamless. No interfaces or integration with the problems that come with them are needed.

Cons

Support resources are scarce and hardware requirements are high if you are planning for an on-premise setup

I have been using LS Retail since 2009 with Various Microsoft Dynamics Navision's versions. I have able to systemised almost all the area of our companies business into ERP with the integration with LS Retail.

Pros

Easy to go with Microsoft Dynamics Navision and other ERP systems. Any discount System can be configured to automate the cashiering system which includes for Tender types, Banks, discount coupon, Gift Voucher, Date & Time-based discount, Quantity based discount and much more.

Cons

Length of the Invoice number in the POS system can not be controlled as of now it is an alphanumeric of more than 12 digits.
