February 2017

Greetings from LumenSoft,

Here comes February and time for nature’s rejuvenation. We at LumenSoft keep in tune with the rejuvenating canon by constantly adding new features to Candela to help retailers keep pace with the constantly evolving technology for retail.  To benefit from all new product upgrades, you need to regularly update your Candela RMS release.
One fast emerging trend in retail is cloud technology. It’s been a few months since we rolled out Candela cloud to make retail simpler plus faster for retailers of all sizes and all business verticals.
Candela Cloud is for retailers who find themselves looking for more freedom, reduced infrastructure cost and innovation in retail. So if you are interested in taking your business to the clouds, don’t think much. You can join us from any part of the world. All you need is an internet connection, and all you have to do is visit:, make a trial account and explore.
We are here to help and give all the support you need to master the software.
And, as always, we look forward to your feedback and suggestions to help us improve. Connect with us via twitter, facebook or drop us a line at:

We’ll be back in March with news about more features in both good old desk-top Candela and the vibrant new and fast growing Candela Cloud to make retail simple plus faster.
 Until then,

happy retailing

How to Shift Products from One Line Item to Another

Dear Techie,

I am in a terrible fix. I had the opportunity to attend such excellent quality training of Candela at LumenSoft and thus found absolutely no problem with defining products, and understanding other screens.  However, I made a very silly mistake: I defined some of my bakery items under the line item grocery. Do I have to re-install Candela and go through the entire exercise again?
