Christiania Glasmagasin was established in 1739 and is therefore one of Norway’s oldest store chains. Today CG is running approximately 60 stores all over Norway with focus on excellent service and quality home products. We chose Centara as the best-of-breed POS solution that favors integration with external financial accounting and inventory management. In this way we are independent of the underlying ERP system when upgrading and not effected by possible changes in the ERP pricing or new terms of service. Centara provides us with a reliable and fast point-of-sale that integrates fully with our Microsoft Dynamics NAV system.

GER is a holding company for Husgagnahollin, Betra bak & Dorma. We are one of the largest chains for home products in Iceland, and require a discount system to manage our discount campaigns. Aside from Centara being a very good fit for chain management, we chose Centara because of its powerful Discount Offer Module. We are now able to centrally manage our special offers with time limitations, scalable pricing and limitless discount strategies. In addition we have also added the Special Order Module providing us with the ability to allow sale on items that are not on stock or not yet available and everything connects seamlessly with our ERP system Dynamics NAV.
