Linchpin, being a cosmetic retail store chain, had zero visibility into the core aspects such as financials, sales, warehouse, and overall store operations of the company.
CloudFronts deployed LS Central and Dynamics 365 Business Central as an end-to-end system, total channel integration to track sales, view customer orders, business, POS, back office, and warehouse.
LS Central manages sales from the POS to the back office and head office using the same application and stores can track sales and stock live on every avenue. From financial point of view, LS Central drastically reduces financial complexity related to inconsistent financial data and offers a holistic view and centralized control over prices, inventory, offers, orders, customers, and products. LS Central’s inventory management capabilities have the potential to leverage a mix of manual and automated replenishment tools to manage your stocks optimally, minimize inventory, and reduce out-of-stock situations.
To summarise, LS Central is a complete all-in-one retail software that is built within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, Microsoft’s #1 ERP solution globally and brings together in one single platform financials (the Microsoft ERP), Point of Sale (POS), store operations, supply chain management, inventory, eCommerce, and customer loyalty.
“CloudFronts team worked closely with LinchPin to ensure a successful migration to the Dynamics 365 Business Central and LS Central platform. We look forward to continue our work with CloudFronts and leveraging this new platform for our growth.”
