Its a good Application, flexible, leverages NAV capabilities. East to use , easy to deploy.

Pros

It is adaptive, flexible architecture. Easy to develop customisations and deployment. simplicity of Pos Features. Integrated application to Inventory and Finance. Discounts , Promotions, Loyalty module. Multiple templates in demo data.

Cons

POS Configuration such as panels & design is quite complicated for users to grasp. Also it is not easy for customers to absorb.
Replenishment setups needs lots of visualisation, setups take time, data maintenance is complicated. Lack of tools such as label printing configurator, OPOS Receipt configurator.
Promotions have performance issues for large retailers. Product maintenance is time consuming. Mass update of products is unavailable. Special orders are quite complicated and need to be simplified. Loyalty needs more profiling . Vouchers and Gift cards needs more details, using web services is not consistent due to traffic in Transaction server work table bottleneck.
Staff management need to simplified for users usage. LS Hospitality KDS has lots of issues still not addressed for years.
Licensing is expensive compare to other competitive products in the market which is most important and losing against the competitive products with lots of easy maintenance features.

I am a software developer, who works most of the time for LS Retail projects

My company has integrated this software with many customers in different countries and all of them are more than happy from the product and the benefits that it brings to their business - flexible and varied types of promotions , loyalty system, easy to use POS system, social media integrations ,etc.

Pros

It includes variety of functionalities - loyalty system, hospitality, web integrations, flexible promotions, retail POS, call center functionality, delivery management . It encompasses many aspects of retail business. You have the possibility to setup it in a way that fits to your business.
Fast replication between different stores and the central database. Possibility for near real time replication of the sells data from the point of sale to the central database, provided by web services. Possibility to manage centralized gift card, discount coupons, loyalty card systems, provided by build in web services

Cons

Initial setup takes time and you need guidance from experienced consultant.
Technical staff is needed to support and monitor the proper functioning of the software ( especially if you have many stores,because of data replication and web service connection between them )

LS Nav is a high quality solution from a top retail partner

I used LS NAV in the Retail and was part of the implementation process. It is easy to lean and has a very intuitive user interface that most people get familiar with very quickly. It is customizable and in the lower end of the price range for the features you get. However customization can get expensive if you need features that are not out of the box.

Pros

Seamless integration with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, highly configurable point of sale user interface, the promotions (discount offers, mix/match, happy hour, buy x get y free, etc.) works very well and is very intuitive once you have used it for a little bit, LS Retail is constantly investing in their solution

Cons

No Security related to tables, Transaction margin, If you customize too much Microsoft Dynamics NAV you can have problems down the line.
The inbuilt reports feature is not fantastic.

This is one of the best retail solution I have ever seen.Its ideal ERP solution for mid size firms.

I've been working on this product as consultant since last 6 years.worked for 3 different organisations on same platform.Its benefits organisation with his powerful features n trustworthy behaviour.

Pros

Best features abt LS Nav is Loyalty management.its is helpful to attract more customers to shop by developing your own loyalty data on each shopping.
The feature which I like most about LS Nav is its Offer management.its provides organization to run different types of items on same product to increase sales.its provide different offers options like mix n match, multibuy, promotion, slab etc.

Cons

There is hardly any issue which I have seen with this product.Other than per year licensing part, this product is very reasonable and cost-effective for the organization

We had the chance to implement LS. NAV Version 800.03 and version 900.05 at different client site.

Pros

The screen is intuitive and easy to use. The functionality does not seem overwhelming or hard to understand. It pack with features and also works with different variation type of retailers- a pure retail store and or hospitality type. It can all be taken care by one system. You can also customize the application to fit your needs such as hide features for some users or also integrate new functionality such as payment integration. I like that it is web enabled which means that a retailer that want to have an Omni channel system can integrate their econmerce to this back office

Cons

Support or response are very slow from LS. Also for any fixes and hot fixes they provide is one the latest version of Dynamics NAV. This means that it is very hard to retrofit hotfixes from one version to the other. A good example are from version 900.03 to the newer 10.00.05. The fixes were not evident or detailed as it should have been. Also the software seems to be over promised. There are features listed that although present - does not fully cover the necessity of the client. A good example is again on version9.00.05 which although advertised as have a good coverage for hospitality- restaurant/bar, there were lots of issues or limitation of the software. The software may allow you to do some configurations and suggest some functionality but it does not work in the context of North America or lead to hard errors with system crash. Such errors were found and are still present in their split bill function for example. The cost is high as well since it is built on top of the dynamics nav stack.

As a project consultant of LS NAV for 4 years, this is the software that is easy to manage.

An active enhancement plan is a vital part of making the most of LS Retail solution, whether it's LS Nav, LS One, or LS First. There are many benefits of being on active enhancement plan that many retailers do not realize, and re-enrolling as a lapsed customer can be costly and time-consuming. With an active enhancement plan, you can provide an excellent customer experience that doesn't end after the license has been purchased.

Pros

The most I like with LS NAV software is the compatibility with other modules. End-to-End business process.

Cons

The least that I like with LS NAV is the monthly update of fix objects, which I don't find it easy for me to catch up regularly since I'm on a project phase.

You will have all the features you want it on the retail field.

Pros

the stability and the functionality. I tried another software, I think the Ls retail is one of the best for retail industry. easy to use, learn, troubleshooting, implement. Really you will have all the features you want it on the retail field.

Cons

the performance issue and the upgrade. it will be a huge difference if you find an easy way to make the upgrade and to find some way to enhance the improvement as well. also I think you must find an easy way to shrink the database, because as you know the retail business have a huge transaction and information.

It's best for retail business just because of solution components and simpleness of POS.

I learned about this,working on it and getting so many things just because of this software.I improved my skills and getting hike upon this :)

Pros

implementation phase is very good & simple for any beginner.POS is very clear concept for anyone & the most important thing that I like very much is troubleshooting.

Cons

I like any software if it's user friendly,and the all qualities are available that I need already there.Troubleshooting is very conceptual and easy to use that I like mostly.

my experience was good.

we did very good customization to integrate with our government fiscal printer (cash register machine) and we implement it for 9 stores. the integration capacity is good. we will not worry to get the daily sales transaction form the remote stores.

Pros

the replication and data distribution functionality is very nice. store and membership management also very good.

Cons

the barcode functionality couldn't work for me also there is no enough document about ls retail replenishment. it is not working at all.

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.

The journey has been a roller coaster experience so far, with ups and downs for each s/w iteration.

Great deal of retail industry know-how and ideas for solving some problems or meeting customer requirements and expectations.

Pros

Usefulness and flexibility of the Scheduler and Data Director, along with the multitude configurable options for POS.

Cons

Complex inter-related setups that would be difficult for non-technical users to do themselves without any prior knowledge or understanding of the whole system. For example, InStore Management and Repelnishment.

I working with LS Retail from 12 Years. I like it!

Pros

I like the Replica's processes. i like the easy method to define and setup the data's replica, from the 2015's version i like very much the new way for the replica of the Objects.

Cons

I not like very much the new POS Client. When I open the POS Client for the first time after the NAV Service Started the client remaining a lot of time in "hold mode" for buffering the data. Some customer do not appreciate this "waiting time".

LS version is getting better by each version and at point of customisation its most convenient

Pros

Overall its very good and user friendly. I think one of the best powerful tool for retailer market. I did a lots of customisation and integration and faced so many challenges but its comfortable to do it in nav versions

Cons

Mobile apps should be more dynamic and technical documents should be available like how to change currency for mobile data replication

This software is the most valuable and simplto use in the Retail industries.

I've learned more about of the retail industry and I can offer to our customers a product solution with a great functionality and capabilities with an easy way to use.

Pros

The integration of Microsoft Dynamics Nav from the Front to Backoffice covering every area of the product.

Cons

Sincerely I don't have any complains about the software. What I like least would be the way the software setup the different screen menues for the POS client.

LS Retail for NAV is comprehensive and flexible software to meet most all POS / Retail needs

Full visibility and access to all aspects of business in one product without integration points or best-of-breed software issues. LS Retail is a flexible, comprehensive, all-in-one software.

Pros

LS is 100% fully integrated into NAV functionality with direct and full connections with sales, purchases, inventory, and financials. All POS and Stores are directly connected to headquarters and everything in between for full visibility into all areas of business.

Cons

Two things - one is setup, because it is so flexible, setup is extremely complex. Once it is setup, little needs to happen and it is very flexible so changes can be made quickly. Second is VAT vs Sales Tax calculations - especially with prepayments. Software is based on VAT, but has Sales Tax (North America) built on top of / besides which can have rounding issues.
