LightSpeed Pro's easy-to-configure and simple-to-maintain multi-store functionality allows retailers to expand to multiple locations with confidence and offer big-box conveniences and personalized service to customers.
Authorized staff can transfer stock between locations on fully-documented transfer transactions.
Perform live product lookups in other stores from the POS or Browser, with full visibility into available inventory as well as reserved inventory or inventory in warehouses.
Multi-Store Pro is LightSpeed's powerful suite of tools for retailers with multiple stores. It is licensed for each individual store location that wishes to activate the Multi-Store Pro feature set.
Products and suppliers are created in a designated 'master' database and are automatically replicated to 'child' location databases. Product attributes and any subsequent changes are also replicated, dramatically reducing the amount of time needed to maintain inventory data and ensuring consistency in how product information is entered into LightSpeed Pro.
Cross-store sales reports allow business owners and managers to generate consolidated reports on sales performance across the chain. Cross-store inventory and valuation reports allow purchasers to know where inventory is distributed to make rapid, critical decisions regarding buying or transferring stock.
Allow customers to use their gift cards anywhere in your chain. Store databases communicate with one other to authorize the transaction in real-time to prevent user error or fraudulent re-use.
Allow customers to return goods in another location. Store database communications ensure that returns affect the transaction record of the return in both stores in real-time.
Multi-Store Pro offers its feature set on a subscription basis, which is renewed annually and includes improvements and optimizations to the features listed above that are released during the 12 month term of the subscription.
Purchasing Multi-Store Pro is not mandatory. Chains can decide whether they need the new functionality and can upgrade at any time. Licenses include a date stamp that activates the feature set until the subscription requires renewal. Inventory Lookups and Inventory Transfers between stores will continue to function without a purchase of Multi-Store Pro.
