The Icelandic retail chain will use LS Central, built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central
Icelandic retail chain Verkfærasalan is the first retailer to implement LS Retail’s commerce software for retail and hospitality, LS Central. Built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the software can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud and in a hybrid environment.
Verkfærasalan is an importer, wholesaler and retailer that specialises in professional construction tools for industry customers and end users. The system’s implementation was managed by Pup Cove, an LS Retail and Microsoft Dynamics partner.
“Verkfærasalan needed technology that was innovative, reliable and would keep them on top of consumer demand, now and in the future,” said Snorri Páll Einarsson, CEO of Pup Cove. “They decided to select a brand-new software which they would be the first to employ in the world, because it’s developed by LS Retail, a leader in retail systems, and is built on trusted Microsoft technology.”
LS Central was released in December 2018 as the new version of LS Nav, a unified commerce software used by retailers, restaurants and forecourt businesses worldwide.
“From a functional point of view, LS Central carries forward the legacy of LS Nav, our extremely successful unified commerce platform,” said Magnus Norddahl, president and CEO at LS Retail. “From a technological point of view, LS Central brings a new approach. A new retail system is a big investment, so it’s very exciting to see innovative retailers putting their trust on our latest release based on our reputation and Microsoft’s. We welcome Verkfærasalan to the LS Retail family and can’t wait to see how the new software will change their business in the next few months.”
