LS Retail Announces Changes to LS Central Loyalty Program
The ultimate dream for retailers—aside from having a very large, loyal customer base—is having the data you need to make important decisions all in one place. Having transactional data from your POS terminals, store systems, inventory, merchandising, and accounting all available and tracked in a single, complete, user-friendly system sound pretty ideal, and if you have Microsoft Dynamics NAV or Dynamics Business Central, LS Retail has a solution that does just that.
More than 74,000 companies worldwide, including adidas, Pizza Hut, and IKEA, all agree that LS Retail is the gold standard in integrated, end-to-end solutions for retail, helping with the management of inventory and pricing, reduction of shrinkage, and more.
