DataWorks, Inc., a Florida-based software development company, has announced its premier inventory software, NeXT®, now enhances the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS).

This recent software development enables NeXT to serve as the purchasing, inventory operations and customer management headquarters (HQ) for RMS users. Interfacing with NeXT expands RMS’s capabilities, and dealers of the product will be able to maximize the number of users more easily for their clients.

“DataWorks has been serving and focusing within the hospitality, leisure and resort markets for the past 15 years," said Mark Cecil, president and CEO of DataWorks.  "However, DataWorks began as a retail management system for small to mid-size retailers in the mid ‘80s.  The connection to and vast knowledge of this market has allowed DataWorks to create the interface to Microsoft’s RMS more easily.  RMS is a great product; however, it seems to max out at about 20 stores. Our product will allow dealers to go further and expand the product even more for their clients because our latest release of  NeXT. This release resolves the issues of the number of countries, currencies, and so on, that are used by each RMS client. We believe our new release will allow dealers to work more effectively and offer a better RMS product overall.”
Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) offers small and mid-market retailers a complete point-of-sale (POS) solution that can be adapted to meet unique retail requirements. This software package automates POS processes and store operations, provides centralized control for multistore retailers, and integrates with Microsoft Office system programs, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and other popular applications. Microsoft Dynamics RMS is built on a proven Microsoft platform that adapts to meet unique and changing retail needs. 

“Clients will now be able to take advantage of two great products within their operation - DataWorks’ NeXT and Microsoft Dynamics RMS. The Microsoft RMS product along with NeXT allows clients a multitude of options when setting tracking and reporting preferences. It was a huge advantage that we had a 25-year head-start in the back office inventory management business,” says Cecil. “We saw a need and upgraded our software to interface seamlessly to the Microsoft RMS system.  We believe we have created a win-win for all parties and especially for RMS dealers around the world.”
