LS Retail releases LS Activity software solution to manage courses, events and reservations

We have released LS Activity, a software solution to manage various types of courses, events and reservations.

Kopavogur, Iceland, 2017-Oct-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — LS Activity enables businesses to handle a wide variety of services – from appointments, to classes, to events, to ticketing, to reservations of space, resources and equipment, and more – in just one system. LS Activity is available as an extension to LS Nav, LS Retail’s successful business management software built on Microsoft Dynamics, currently used in over 64,000 retail stores and restaurants worldwide.

LS Activity features tools to support businesses with multiple locations. The system enables managers to handle and oversee from headquarters bookings, courses and more, for all of their outlets.

“Having to juggle multiple, disconnected systems is one of the biggest challenges retailers and hospitality companies face today,” says Magnus Norddahl, CEO and President at LS Retail. “We hear it all the time: companies implement separate software solutions to manage different parts of their business – and then they encounter integration problems, can’t reconcile their data, and waste a lot of work hours trying to make sense of it all. With the release of LS Activity, we are staying true to our company slogan ‘We make business easy’ by enabling retail and hospitality companies to manage even more aspects of their business in just one platform,” he adds.

LS Activity includes tools to manage activities as diverse as spa bookings, golf course reservations, dog training courses, cooking classes, conference organization, and more. “The system features numerous setup possibilities, and can support retailers needing extra capabilities to manage appointments and courses, as well as hospitality companies that have reservations and events at the core of their business. Many of our customers have been asking for a software solution with these characteristics, and we are proud to say that LS Activity can do all they asked for, and more,” concludes Magnus.

LS Activity is available as an add-on to LS Nav through LS Retail’s worldwide network of partners.

Avero Food Cost Management: US Foods and Avero launch software solution to manage a restaurant kitchen

Rosemont, Ill., 2016-Sep-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — Today (Sep 22, 2016 ), US Foods and Avero introduced a revolutionary new product that makes the challenging job of running a restaurant kitchen easier – Avero Food Cost Management (FCM). Avero FCM easily integrates with a restaurant’s point of sale system to give a seamless, digital look into food cost data and real-time inventory information. It also provides predictive sales forecasts and purchase quantity suggestions that tell restaurant operators exactly what they need to order, and when they need to order it.

“No restaurateur gets into this business because they love managing inventory and food costs, but this is essential and important work and through our partnership with Avero we are making this work easier,” said Jim Osborne, Senior Vice President, E-Commerce and Business Solutions, US Foods. “We know how difficult running a restaurant can be and that’s why we’ve made bringing leading technology solutions to our customers a priority.”

The US Foods and Avero partnership means that US Foods customers’ product lists and purchase trends are automatically loaded into Avero FCM based on historical purchases and invoices. All new US Foods orders can be placed quickly through Avero FCM, and customers’ inventory is automatically updated with the new purchases once they are received, saving operators hours each week. Additionally, the new product streamlines inventory counting and waste tracking – two areas where operators say they need help.

“At Avero we pride ourselves on understanding what restaurateurs want before they even know they want it, and we’ve taken that to the next level with our new Food Cost Management solution,” said Damian Mogavero, CEO and Founder of Avero. “Avero FCM adds tremendous value to the Avero product set, and our integration with US Foods gives restaurant operators across the country the ability to revolutionize their purchasing and inventory, helping them get back to doing what they love.”

Avero Food Cost Management is an affordable solution that can benefit all US Foods customers and now it’s part of the Avero Gold package. To learn more visit www.usfoods.com/avero.
