LS Retail, world-leading provider of management software solutions for retail and hospitality, has released LS Fashion Express, the company's first cloud-based management software for fashion retailers.
LS Fashion Express is a more compact, cloud-based version of successful management software LS Nav, built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. It includes everything fashion retailers need to run their business - from financials down to the Point of Sale. "This product is tailored to small and medium-sized fashion businesses. We have streamlined the processes fashion retailers perform on a daily basis in order to make retailers more productive and more competitive," says Dadi Karason, Chief Technology Officer at LS Retail.
True to the company's slogan "Easier, simpler, faster", LS Fashion Express promises simple and fast implementation, ease of use and frequent updates, so fashion retailers can maintain their competitive edge by running the latest software solution. "Our goal was to deliver a solution that fashion retailers can use out of the box, no customization required," says Karason. The system will offer fashion businesses increased speed of execution, as core applications can now be set up in minutes, instead of days or weeks.
LS Retail plans to release more industry-specific cloud-based versions of LS Nav. "We are starting with apparel and fashion because it is our biggest market within retail. Besides, the fashion industry fits perfectly with the way we see the cloud moving forward," says Karason. "But we plan to add more industries in the future".
LS Fashion Express will be on the market at subscription-based pricing, eliminating the barrier of high start-up investment that can deter small and medium retailers from purchasing business management systems.
LS Fashion Express will initially be available for customers in the UK and US.
LS Retail will showcase their cloud offering at Convergence 2015 EMEA, the Microsoft Dynamics annual event which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, between November 30 and December 2, 2015.
