The latest version of LS Nav on Business Central was released. This is the last version of the product known as LS Nav on Business Central: from version 13.03 onwards, the system will change name to LS Central. Let’s take a look at the most exciting new features that are now available.
Automated creation of documents in the Threshold Management functionalityIn this release, we have enhanced the recently introduced Threshold Management functionality. Threshold Management, part of the Replenishment module, helps retailers save money by optimizing item quantities in Purchase Orders, and by avoiding Transfer Orders when there are only small quantities to transfer. The Threshold Rules describe upper and lower limits for quantity, weight, cubage, sales amount, cost amount or profit amount. These rules can be defined per vendors, items and item groups, locations, date periods and specific Replenishment Templates. Threshold Rules can interfere with each other - a violated rule for a specific item category can lead to a violation for a vendor-based rule, when the affected items are purchased from this vendor. This behavior, called Cross Dependency, is supported starting with this version of LS Central. Thanks to the introduction of the Partial Document Creation feature, you can now:
- Calculate threshold rules with cross dependencies
- Approve and reset threshold rules with cross dependencies
- Set up Replenishment Templates that allow (or disallow) the automatic creation of Transfer Orders or Purchase Orders for items without threshold violations. You can decide to set up automated document creation even if other violations were raised for the specific Replenishment Template.
