Celerant Technology: Provider of Premium, Advanced Retail Management Software

CIO VendorIan Goldman, CEO
The world is experiencing a fascinating evolution at the intersection of technology and commerce. Today, innovative applications offer smart solutions that are reshaping the retail landscape faster than ever, and customers are learning to expect a seamless shopping experience, in-store and online. Additionally, Point of Sale (POS) systems have immensely improved operations in the retail industry. New advancements such as self checkout and multiple payment options in POS systems, being offered in recent years have taken retail to the next level, enabling organizations to run businesses smoothly and provide customers with an optimal level of service. Making significant impacts in this landscape is Celerant Technology—provider of premium, advanced retail management software for retail organizations. “Our real-time management system, Celerant Command Retail, integrates all channels of a multi-channel retail enterprise including POS, warehouse, inventory management, sales back office, data mining and e-commerce,” says Ian Goldman, Founder and CEO, Celerant Technology.

The company’s approach is more individually focused rather than mass-production. “At Celerant, we have the ability to tailor our POS software to provide retailers with the control needed to operate a more efficient retail business,” explains Goldman. The company’s Command Retail is an immediate POS retail management system that manages all areas of a retail organization including POS, sales back office, inventory management, distribution center, multi-channel commerce, and data mining in a single integrated system. All retail channels are integrated seamlessly with one centralized database, providing enhanced visibility throughout the enterprise, eliminating the need to re-enter data and online orders.

“Our advantage is the flexibility of our Java platform—used to solve data integration issues, allowing Celerant professionals to conduct cost-effective analysis and adaptation based on the individual needs of each retailer,” says Goldman.
The result is a better system that meets the needs of each retail business, giving them the tools to take command of their success.In addition, Celerant also offers Stratus Retail— premier multichannel retail software that provides retailers the freedom to run their business in real-time, with a customizable retail platform. This software easily manages all of retail channels with one flexible solution and delivers clients full access to all functions including inventory, transfers and receipts. Stratus Retail can also be accessed from any mobile device with a web browser including tablets and smartphones, as well as traditional legacy hardware. Stratus Retail is enabled with functionality that works with Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) devices to secure clients data at the point of entry, limiting the appearance of sensitive cardholder information in the system's memory.

Celerant provides a range of customized services designed to serve the more complex retail enterprises, in addition to traditional planning, implementation, training, and support services. For instance, one of the company’s clients, Tennis Express— an omni-channel retailer of tennis equipment, apparel and accessories, wanted to provide a seamless shopping experience for consumers across all of its selling channels. Tennis Express knocked Celerant’s door, as this software provider could help them deliver POS, ERP and e-commerce data in a single solution. As a result, Tennis Express became one of the fastest-growing tennis retailers in the U.S., providing a hassle-free shopping experience.

With a proven track-record of empowering retailers with the tools to grow their business, Celerant has earned a number of accolades over the years. Goldman believes that with proper planning, retailers can “future-proof” their POS and payment processing systems, from a liability standpoint and the company will continue assisting them with customized solutions.
