Plano, , TX (PressExposure) November 15, 2011 -- Lucernex Technologies announced today that it has formed a design partnership with two clients to expand and optimize the delivery of its application to mobile tablet users.
In 2010, Lucernex re-architected their entire Lx Retail platform to take full advantage of Cloud computing. These Cloud solutions are now managing tens of thousands of locations. In 2011, Lucernex launched the Lx Retail solution on iPads, which is now in daily use by a 2,500+ store restaurant chain.
"The results are being measured in greater productivity of field-based staff." said Lucernex President Joe Valeri. "This staff doesn't need to waste time coming into the corporate office because they can manage their tasks, activities and workflows remotely. This success has caused us to dedicate more resources to product design so that we can optimize tablet computer use."
Some of the features currently popular in Lx Retail on tablets include:
Personalized dashboards with notices, reminders and alerts
Data entry and data management
Workflow management that allows remote data entry, review and approval
Critical date management
Report generation and review
Schedule and task management
Robert Abdul, VP of Sales for Lucernex, described the industry demand for tablet computing as being extremely high. "In the current economic environment, any tool or technology that allows people to be more productive, identify and focus on tasks that really matter, and stay connected to their key stakeholders and clients is important."
The amount of money that Retailers spend on technology has been growing and is expected to continue growing, particularly in the area of enhanced mobile and collaboration applications. "Spending money to make money and to become more efficient is just the retail way of life." Said Ken Brown, Lucernex EVP and CIO. "Because we were the first to market an integrated Store Life Cycle Management system, the first to offer a SaaS application, and the first to market a Cloud solution, it isn't surprising that retail customers are turning to us to help them better manage their real estate operations by leveraging new technology. Our 100% cloud computing environment means that we can easily deliver our entire suite of applications on tablets and still provide the industry's fastest performance."
Many retailers will be purchasing new systems in 2012 and 2013 in order to be able to process transactions and produce the results and reports that will be required by the new FASB guidelines Smart retail companies will be replacing their legacy systems with Cloud computing applications to provide this required new functionality, gain efficiency through easier processing, and dramatically drive down IT capital and operating costs.
