LS Nav and Microsoft Power BI give Veritas centralised control and reporting across their entire business
Based throughout Ireland, Veritas stores stock a wide range of titles from worldwide leading Christian publishers. Our stores also stock extensive ranges of religious goods, giftware and greeting cards for all occasions.
Veritas Publications also provides Design and Print services. As an agency of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference, we are here to serve the other agencies of the Conference, the dioceses and parishes of Ireland and provide all print needs: pastorals, pamphlets, booklets, brochures, fliers, leaflets, annual reports, catalogues, prayer cards, bookmarks and business stationery.
This project required a robust and easily managed solution which would give Veritas centralised control and reporting across their entire business. The solution needed to support their retail operation across nine stores, warehouse operations, financial management and back office functions. The LS Nav ERP solution with full EPOS functionality together with Microsoft Power BI reporting was chosen as it was an ideal fit for Veritas requirements. Veritas undertook this project to replace existing disparate systems where Retail, Warehouse and Finance all ran on separate non-integrated systems. They wanted to centralise management of data and reporting as well as manage Products with simple distribution of updates to all stores. LS Nav allowed visibility on stock positions across the entire estate in real time allowing for better supply chain management. Microsoft Power BI provided analysis and reporting insights across the entire business.
The Project Benefits:
LS Nav together with Power BI provided Veritas with:
- One single, Feature & Benefit full ERP system
- Complete Retail management throughout 9 stores
- An easily managed centralised system where changes and updates were quick to deploy with no disruption to the function of the business.
- Fully integrated financials including everything from store EPOS to Head Office General Ledger
- Improved Supply Chain Function, Stock and Inventory management
- Centralised data repository for easy & up to date reporting
LS Nav leveraged the strengths of Microsoft Dynamics Nav coupled with LS Retail to provide a robust easily managed solution, integrating central head office factions to the nine stores throughout the country. Microsoft Power BI gave Veritas access to both legacy data and LS Nav data providing continuity for year on year analysis & key insights.
