LS NAV = No More Retail Headaches

POS systems today are a long way from the original cash register retailers used initially. Advanced POS systems can now manage everything from tracking your inventory to tracking your customers and therefore, your business. Whether you’re a mom-and-pop shop or an established chain, your choice in a point-of-sale software is one of the most important considerations for your business. LS NAV has been a strong candidate in every retail implementation thus far, and we’ve listed some benefits of why we think it could be right for you as well:

  • Everything’s right here! (Including your financials):

With LS NAV – you are getting a complete solution that combines your point-of-sale and your ERP out of the box. This virtually eliminates manual data entry and human error, not to mention it saves you some valuable time for you and your staff. Free time? Yes, please! With your new combo system, you can do things like look into based on the purchase data recorded by your POS and adjust prices during a slower day of the week or perhaps establish a recurring sale during that period. From there, you can review the accounting information (all using the same system) afterward to see how these variables affect your financials as a whole.

  • Inventory Management:

As retailers know, inventory management can sometimes be a nightmare due to the variations a product can have, i.e. sizes, colors, etc. An advanced POS system like LS NAV can provide the ultimate control when it comes to sales and purchase orders. You will always know how much you have in stock of each product and you can have them categorized in whichever way desired – name, brand, supplier code, SKU, and a multitude of other categorizations. With a user-friendly interface designed for modern inventory control, you are able to track every single stock move from purchase to warehouse to sales order. LS NAV also allows easily looking up past transactions and discovering which product is stuck on the shelf for weeks as well as which products are selling the most. Thus, making inventory management that more easy.

  • No more headaches:

Some POS systems already have you pulling your hair out before they’re even up and running. With hours of trial and error during the setup, and even more hours with phone calls to customer support – naturally, one might at this point debate just giving customers the product for free instead of dealing with their POS system. With LS NAV, you will have a partner handling the implementation allowing for a smooth transition. Omni Logic provides you with a point of contact that will be with you and your team every step of the way while implementing your shiny new software.

  • Stay in the know:

Keep track of things even when you aren’t on site. Obtain real-time reports of anything to do with your business – from profit after markup to the sales attributed to each employee. This clear reporting allows you to make smarter decisions today. LS NAV even provides the ability to customize these reports so you can see exactly what you need – from wherever you are, even when you are in the comfort of your own home or preferably, a beach in Maui.

Subscription Licensing

A business can be ready for an ERP solution, but sometimes the wallet isn’t. Today, we are going to break down the difference between Perpetual and Subscription Licensing. Learn how you can decrease the cost while still having Microsoft Dynamics NAV today.

Perpetual Licensing

You are licensing the software with permanent usage rights. This means you can use the software for as long as you would like. Perpetual Licensing is ideal if you prefer an upfront investment for your business. If will run the software on your premises and manage the solution in-house – this is also the route to go.

Subscription Licensing

You license non-perpetual rights. You can use the software only during the term of the agreement secured by periodic payments. To put it another way, this is like renting month-to-month or a pay-as-you-go service.

Is Subscription Licensing a good fit for my business?

If you are wary of an ERP solution due to the price tag that comes with it, then it definitely could be. It might be particularly beneficial for businesses that have variable staff or start-ups. After all, spending thousands on a hardware solution can be a huge commitment. Particularly if you aren’t sure where you want to take your business yet, or who will be clocking in next week.

With Subscription licensing, you can buy the exact number of licenses you need month-to-month. NAV has never been more more accessible to SMB’s that want an economical option than it is today. You can have an ERP without breaking the budget.

5 Perks of a Cloud-Based Solution

A question we get asked often is whether or not a cloud-based solution is right for a customers business. The pro’s and con’s are easy enough to think on without a fancy degree in computer technology. Let’s take a look at the key reasons we think you should consider the cloud:

Up and running in no time with money to save

If your company is looking to switch to an ERP, but are deterred by the cost – saving time on hardware installation can be the deal-breaker. Deploying a new solution on-premise can take a while because of procuring and installing the IT infrastructure. Implementing a cloud ERP can easily cut your deployment time in half.

 “We already have hardware though!”

That’s okay. If your company has an ERP solution, but outdated hardware – again, this might be the deal-breaker. We won’t lie, a hardware refresh can be expensive. A transition to the cloud could cut your cost exponentially by placing the hardware ownership on your cloud-based provider’s shoulders instead of on yours.

Hardware, installation, and maintenance costs going to your cloud-based provider frees up your finances for taking your business to new heights.

Pay As You Go

Some companies are just starting up and some have variable staff based on the jobs and projects lined up at the time. Spending thousands on a hardware solution is a huge commitment if you aren’t sure where you want to take your business yet or who’s clocking in next week. A cloud-based solution allows you to purchase the exact number of licenses you need each month on a month-to-month basis. No muss, no fuss!

Accessible From Everywhere

A huge perk of a cloud-based solution is having the ability to access your data everywhere. Working from home, the office, or even on the road – just got easier.

Better security

Cloud-based providers are often held to a higher standard by many organizations. This pressure means your cloud-based provider will ensure their systems have industry-standard data security certifications, disaster recovery, and back up procedures in place.
