Dynamics NAV 2015 includes extensive support for cloud-based deployment and can be deployed both in public and private clouds. LS Nav is offered as a service. Retailers can subscribe to the solution and have a standardized solution up and running with limited up-front investment. Smaller retailers can even deploy the LS Nav POS in the cloud, thus having all main components of a retail solution running as a cloud-based solution.
More and more, retail customers are using the latest technology, including smart phones, social media and connected devices. Retailers are often slow to respond to changes in customer behavior, at their great peril, and older retail software solutions do not always support retailers in being responsive and agile. The new “under-the-hood” changes in Dynamics NAV 2015, combined with mobility, rapid implementation tools and a cloud-based solution, provide a platform that offers exciting new opportunities for retailers. Instead of being constrained by the cost and effort of updating the solutions, the retailer could take full advantage of a solution that is constantly up-to-date, giving almost instant access to latest technology and best practice. This would give retailers the opportunity to keep up with the pace at which their customers are running, and maybe even get a step or two ahead!
