LS POS can be used with both keyboard and touch-screen equipment, and offers features that make sales transactions easy to set up, manage and process for any retail business. LS POS sets new standards for speed, ease-of-use and error-free processing of retail sales. The system has integrated real-time accounting and powerful inventory control.
Powerful and reliable data replication. LS Retail has an integrated communications module that allows you to easily send data between head office, store and POS. The communications module consists of three parts, the LS Retail Data Director, Transaction Server and the LS Retail Scheduler.
The LS Retail Data Director takes care of high speed data exchange between different Microsoft Dynamics NAV databases, and other databases that are not based on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The Data Director was specifically designed to increase the speed of replication over Wide Area Networks (WAN). It uses shorter time to send data and requires less bandwidth than previous generations. These features are especially important to users who have databases in different areas or regions, as they save communication costs.
- Perform well with the Data Director
- Built for Performance
- Parallel processing is the main feature of the Data Director, resulting in extremely good performance in LS Retail.
- Peak Versatility
The Data Director is versatile. In addition to being able to communicate with all versions of Microsoft Dynamics, it can also communicate with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and 2008, Microsoft Access and so on.
Live Information. The Transaction Server is used to allow the POS to make online enquiries to a central database while running in standalone mode. This gives the POS a high level of resilience while maintaining access to data in a central database.
Scheduling. LS Retail has a built-in scheduling mechanism that can be used to run batch jobs. The scheduling mechanism is also used to schedule transfers of data between head office and store or from store to POS terminals. These transfers can be done either with Replicator or via the LS Retail Data Director. The LS Retail Scheduler is a flexible tool that can operate according to a number of parameters. Jobs can be scheduled to run on certain dates and times or with regular intervals.
