In addition to the physical stores, customers can buy curtains, tablecloths, blankets, and other interior textiles through the online shop.
Eurokangas chose IT provider Solteq Plc, an LS Retail certified partner, to renew its ERP system. The cooperation with Solteq had started a few years earlier when they became responsible for the maintenance of Eurokangas' systems and the modernization of their POS systems. The renewal of the ERP system was a natural continuation of this cooperation.
“We are proud and happy to be involved in the development of Eurokangas' business systems. The modern LS Central retail system, together with the Business Central ERP system supporting multi-channel trading, bring much-needed fluency to Eurokangas' processes” says Juha Rokkanen, President of Solteq Digital.
LS Central was selected as the new solution for Eurokangas, to be implemented in 31 stores of the chain. LS Central extends Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central ERP and covers purchasing, sales, replenishment, and financial management processes. LS Central’s out-of-the-box integration with eCommerce platform Magento has also enabled Eurokangas to drive core functions on their eCommerce website.
Eurokangas credits their technology partner’s expertise for the commitment and smooth implementation. “Solteq met our needs, and we believe the new system is very business-friendly due to its adaptability and modern features” says Daniel Ward, CEO of Eurokangas.
Although the implementation is ongoing, Eurokangas already finds day-to-day operations much easier. The main benefits they are deriving from LS Central include:
- Access to reliable and timely data. All data is collected in one central place, so Eurokangas can track sales, stock and productivity in real time, in all their locations, from the back office.
- Flexibility and scalability, with the ability to extend the system as the business grows and the company’s needs evolve.
- Easy-to-use and intuitive graphic user interface, based on the familiar Microsoft environment, which makes operating the system simple and training quicker.
- Connected operations across physical stores and eCommerce. Eurokangas can deliver a consistent shopping experience across all their sales channels, including their store network, corporate sales, and eCommerce.
