Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Lucernex Technologies announced today that Genesco has selected Lucernex’s cloud-based Lx Contracts solution to manage its portfolio of more than 2,500+ mall-based locations. Genesco operates retail stores primarily under the names Journeys, Lids, Lids Locker Room, Johnston & Murphy, Journeys Kidz, Shi by Journeys and Underground by Journeys.
“One of the key reasons we chose Lucernex was its ability to have visibility through Lx Contracts across our entire multi-brand portfolio,” said Kimberly Williams, Manager of Lease Administration for Genesco. “Additionally, we wanted to incorporate Lx Datamart due to its advanced reporting capabilities, a compelling function we have not seen in previous systems.”
Lx Contracts will consolidate lease data across all Genesco brands as distinct portfolios within the one Lucernex system. Genesco also purchased the Lx Datamart, which will allow Genesco to leverage their existing advanced report solutions using a report-optimized version of the Lx Contracts database housed at Genesco. This will give senior management the ability to access and analyze data and run advanced reports across all portfolios from one system.
“Lx Contracts was selected due to our proven ability to rapidly implement even the most complex multi-brand portfolios of leases and our past success in converting from Genesco’s legacy system,” stated Joe Valeri, Lucernex President and Co-Founder. “We believe the ability to create true transparency across all brands within the Genesco portfolio will be a huge benefit to Genesco’s management.”
Lx Contracts is the Lease Administration and Rent Accounting module of Lx Retail, the market-leading Retail IWMS solution delivered in the True Cloud. Lx Contracts can support any size portfolio of stores including currency, date and location support worldwide.
The Lx Datamart provides unlimited enterprise reporting and the added security of an onsite backup of all contract financial data.
Implementation of the Lx Contracts solution began in March 2014.
