Maine Retailer Boosts Visibility at Point of Sale, Improves Collaboration Among Its Stores

Renys, a regional chain of discount retail stores in Maine, has selected Junction Solutions to implement Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and help launch its multichannel retail strategy, while automating manual processes and improving visibility and collaboration throughout its store locations.

Since the opening of its first store in 1949, Renys has grown to 16 stores throughout the state with nearly 500 employees. To continue its year-over-year sales growth, Renys decided to expand as a multichannel retailer and replace its financial and point of sale legacy systems so it could unify all of its enterprise data into one platform, automate its numerous manual processes, and access and view business information in real time. It chose Junction Solutions, which provides vertical-specific on-premise and on-demand software applications and services for the multichannel retail and food and beverage industries.

Junction Solutions will implement and manage its Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and POS system in a hybrid model that includes an on-premise and cloud deployment. It also will implement Renys' online storefront, provide training and a 24/7 global development and support team to manage the company's systems.

Specifically, Renys wants to improve visibility into inventory and sales throughout all of its stores. Renys also plans to significantly slash the time it takes its buyers to perform forecast and sales analysis since they currently have to rely on primarily manually-driven sales spreadsheets and reports that often are not considered accurate. Renys expects to reduce the time it takes for its end-of-month and end-of-year reconciliations by automating many of the manual financial processes used today.
