We selected Lucernex due to their proven ability to convert legacy systems quickly and accurately.

Lucernex Technologies announced today that one of Canada’s largest full-service restaurant companies, Cara Operations Limited, has successfully gone live on Lucernex’s cloud-based Lx Contracts solution to manage its multi-brand portfolio of over 700 restaurants across Canada. Lx Contracts replaced their legacy system RetaiLease.
 
“RetaiLease is one of the most challenging legacy lease systems to convert but we were able to get it done to meet Cara’s rigorous schedule using our proprietary data conversion toolkit” said Ken Brown, EVP and CIO of Lucernex, “We have now successfully converted every major legacy lease administration system and integrated the conversion mapping into our toolkit”.
 
The project included a complete data conversion and replacement of their existing lease administration and rent accounting solution, RetaiLease, as well as six integrations into their back office financial system JDE.
 
“We selected Lucernex due to their proven ability to convert legacy systems quickly and accurately”, stated Mary Ormond, Vice President, Real Estate Portfolio Management of Cara Operations Limited. “Their team was extremely knowledgeable of the industry and of lease accounting making the project go very smoothly.”
 
Lx Contracts is the Lease Administration and Rent Accounting module of Lx Retail, the market-leading store lifecycle management and retail IWMS solution delivered in the cloud.  Lx Contracts can support any size portfolio of stores including currency, date and location support worldwide.
