In 1833 Johann Jakob Boller and Johann Kaspar Winkler founded Boller Winkler Group, a textile manufacturing company. Today, this 182-year tradition of high-quality textiles continues with Schlossberg. Since 1959, Schlossberg Switzerland has made the brand synonymous with exclusive bed linen which prides itself with the highest quality as regards materials, workmanship and design. Schlossberg’s linens are sold worldwide, but the company also operates five dedicated boutiques in Switzerland and Germany.
The combined power of Microsoft NAV and LS Nav When looking for a business management software, LS Retail implementation partner HSG Hanse Solution pointed Schlossberg Switzerland towards LS Nav. The company was convinced after learning that they could combine their current ERP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, with LS Nav, to make one, fully integrated retail software solution.
With the invaluable support of the HSG team, the new solution was rolled out in just one weekend. The team managed to achieve this incredible result even with the added challenge of combining the different data structures of LS Nav and TRIMIT, another industry-specific Microsoft Dynamics NAV software that the company was already using. The biggest problem faced during implementation had to do with connecting the web service to voucher acceptance. All other data, however, flowed easily and fast via Data Director straight to the stores.
Benefits all around
Schlossberg is now making good use of its new software system. Among the biggest benefits of LS Nav are: • EFT integration for all POS, so Schlossberg can now accept payment cards from all over the world; • Online inventory for all outlets; • Quick item import into NAV; • Easy-to-use graphic interface at POS, which speeds up service; • Possibility to access customer information at POS; • Central overview over all stores and outlet.
