Is MLS needed for anything?

Is MLS needed for anything anymore? I'm a new clerk and everything I have done so far is in LCR, including tithing, updating membership records, etc. Are there any functions that MLS has that LCR does not?

They are so few and obscure that I no longer recall them. Some wards in our stake have not used MLS in months.

The only thing that comes to my mind is that MLS has custom reports, and may be more permissive in allowing others to use it. While LCR does have custom reporting ability, I'm not sure if it's as flexible, and it doesn't appear to be as available to other callings.

One advantage of MLS is you can process a donation batch when the internet is down.
