LS Nav

Ideally it can work with any kind of retailer but workarounds and customisations required to handle deliveries.

Munis

Munis is great for any sort of data keeping and accounting work. There are features of Munis that I am still not familiar with even after 6 years of use. Munis would not be very good for a point of sale sort of operation like a retail store because it just simply is not set up for that sort of operation.

Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Munis

  • Workflow is easy and easy to adjust.
  • Very Very user friendly even for the non computer savvy employees.
  • Windows based so easy to navigate.
  • Excellent help desk.

Cons

LS Nav

  • Data Director leaves room for improvement as it can be very tricky while dealing with a large number of master data records. Sometimes it doesn't write delete actions to POS.
  • Furniture retail is another area where improvement is required to handle deliveries.
  • Newer versions don't support data replicator which was the most reliable data tool with earlier LS Retail versions. There should be a replacement for this tool.
Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Munis

  • Submitting a purchase order requires lots of tabbing through fields
  • The product has lots of features, but they require additional training to understand how to use
  • Generating reports can sometimes be difficult

Munis

  • Munis has prevented our office from needing multiple software programs to house all of our information.
  • All of our employees have access to the same information, on the same software.
  • Munis has made day-to-day operations smoother for our office because we are not constantly flipping between programs or software.
