Likelihood to Recommend

LS Nav

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

Vend

For any retail store that needs to sync their inventory with other platforms, or that needs to sell brick & mortar AND online, Vend works great. They have their own e-commerce option for those starting fresh.
For those selling subscriptions, packages, tickets, or other non-retail items, there are more specific products available on the market.

Pros

LS Nav

  • Offline/semi-offline mode works well in areas where connectivity is an issue.
  • Pricing, offers and promotions can be configured exceptionally well in LS Retail.
  • POS interface design is simple, robust and easily configurable.

  • Sales and promotions
  • Reporting

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.

Vend

  • Tedious product search

Alternatives Considered

LS Nav

It scores higher on overall user experience and matured features set.
Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vend

Vend is much more capable than Square POS for product management and inventory control. ShopKeep is fairly similar to Vend but is a more closed ecosystem with fewer third-party integrations and less frequent updates.

Return on Investment

LS Nav

  • Timely sales visibility
  • Optimum Inventory levels
  • Enough data to visualise trends and patterns
Vimal Chandan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vend

  • Correct inventory levels has been a game-changer. We use to oversell because of inconsistencies between POS and e-commerce sales.
  • The built-in loyalty program has been very useful and was much more appealing to customers than we originally predicted.
