CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures (CMH), the world’s premier heli-skiing and heli-hiking operator, has selected LS Central unified commerce software to run CMH’s retail stores, restaurants, accommodation, and services.
Based in Banff, Canada, CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures is the oldest and largest heli-skiing operation in the world. With a tenure of over three million acres spanning across several mountain ranges in British Columbia, Canada, CMH operates across an area one-third the size of Switzerland. The company has 12 destinations offering trips that combine helicopter-accessed skiing and hiking with alpine dining and luxury accommodations.
LS Central is an end-to-end business management software that extends ERP Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central with specialized functionality for the retail, food service, and hospitality industries. With LS Central, businesses can manage their entire enterprise within one platform, including inventory, employee productivity, retail sales, food production, restaurant orders, accommodation, plus services such as appointments, rentals, and courses.
"We interviewed more than 60 separate technology providers to identify a holistic software that would support our business with minimum customization required," said says Andrew Grasmuck, Director IT/IS & Retail at CMH. "LS Central from LS Retail came out as a strong winner, time and again. We also got glowing reviews from current LS Retail customers and positive feedback from analyst firm Gartner, who did an independent assessment for us.”
LS Central is the solution of choice for several businesses that run a mixed retail, hospitality and food service business, including Blue Mountain Resort in Canada. Both Blue Mountain and CMH belong to the Alterra Mountain Company group.
“With LS Central, resorts and hospitality companies finally have a holistic software that gives them a single overview across all their activities,” says Kristjan Johannsson, Chief Commercial Officer at LS Retail. “The CMH model of business, mixing fine dining, adventure, shopping, and accommodation, is a perfect fit for LS Central. We are excited to have a prestigious business like CMH join our community, and we look forward to seeing how the new software will support their business in the years to come.”
CMH will use LS Central to run its retail stores, bars and restaurants, properties, and services, which include spa treatments, courses, and activities that require bookings. The new software will be introduced in 2022.
