Software that covers
your stationery, crafts, and
bookstore chain from A to Z

Make small and big tasks a breeze with a software solution
that takes care of all the complicated stuff

POS and ERP software for your arts and crafts, stationery and office supply stores

With a large variety of stock and high transaction volumes, bookstores, stationery, and craft stores need a solid retail solution, with reliable inventory management and automations.

With LS Retail software you get a powerful end-to-end platform for your entire business, from back office and operations to customer service, in the physical and online stores.

A single platform reduces costs and duplicate work: you only need to enter information once, be it products, customers, vendors, or promotions. The system then distributes the information to all touchpoints, so your employees and customers, can always see what’s in stock in real time. With all information saved in one database you can also keep the pulse on your sales, inventory, revenue and opportunities at all times.

And if you want to expand beyond products, and offer courses, ticketed workshops, or events, or a cozy café or bagel shop, you can manage all that - registrations, planning, food service – within the same powerful retail management system.

Our software solution is ideal for:
