Big B World, a retail distributor specializing in video games, selected AVF Consulting to implement LS Retail for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. LS Retail is a retail management and point of sale (POS) solution built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
With seven stores throughout New York City and New Jersey and plans to grow, Big B World needed retail management software that provided them with a dashboard view of store operations from headquarters. Their old basic accounting software and separate point of sale systems were inefficient and did not give Big B World executives the data they needed to make informed business decisions.
“We plan to add at least two stores per year and our old systems were not equipped for a growing retailer,” said Bumsung Han, president of Big B World. “We needed a system that gave us instant access to each store’s sales and inventory information. At this point in our growth, we were ready to make an investment in technology that would give us a strong ROI.”
Because LS Retail is built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV, there is 100% integration between the POS and back office accounting. Once implemented, Big B World will be able to connect stores, view inventory and P&L in each store quickly and easily, and view vital data from a dashboard perspective from headquarters as well as from each store.
“Our team reviewed several systems before choosing LS Retail and Microsoft Dynamics,” said Yong Kim, IT manager for Big B World. “We wanted a completely integrated system and Microsoft was able to deliver that through LS Retail. The ability to quickly access key business data was an important selling point, and we expect that we will be able to perform stronger analysis of past performance as well as forecasting.”
Big B World chose Microsoft because it is a large, trusted technology company that provides an integrated POS and back office accounting system that supports their growth strategy. They expect LS Retail will streamline operations, reduce time spent on manual transactions, and allow management to monitor sales and store activity at an enterprise level.
