Celerant Technology, a leader in the retail software industry, was recently selected by the Department of the U.S. Navy as the new software provider for their Ships Store Program. After extensive research and an elaborate review process, the US Navy has chosen Celerant to provide an “end to end” enterprise software solution that could be used on over 150 naval ships.
“We are pleased to have been chosen by the US Navy and look forward to developing this partnership and providing the Navy with our advanced retail software,” stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO. “Our team of experienced software developers, implementation specialists, and support technicians are well equipped and prepared to make the transition of each ship store as smooth as possible, regardless of a ship’s location. With our software, Command Retail, the naval stores will gain similar efficiencies of operation of workload reduction, corporate oversight and reduced training costs, equivalent to stores existing in traditional brick and mortar locations.”
Command Retail manages all areas of a retail business, f r o m the point of sale on the front end, to inventory management, warehouse, distribution, allocation, advanced reporting on the back end, and integrated e-commerce. The Celerant system is written in Java and performs in real time, connecting all retail channels seamlessly with a centralized database. If by chance internet connectivity is lost, such as when a navy ship is at sea, transactions at the store are not interrupted and the Celerant system allows all data to be imported as soon as the connection is restored.
“With the selection of this new retail software provider for the U.S. Navy’s ships stores, the Navy will have taken a step in moving f r o m a legacy environment to a more efficient corporate enterprise / distance support process. We expect significant efficiencies such as the reduction of training costs and inventory carrying costs.” stated Charles Vaughan, Vice President, Navy Exchange Service Command Afloat Operations / Ships Store Program. “Implementing Command Retail will provide our fleet with a higher level of efficiency and the capability to make cost-effective operational decisions that weren’t as possible before.”
The Department of the Navy has approximately 155 Ship Stores on commissioned ships, carrying basic necessities, as well as a limited selection of semi-luxury items such as electronics and watches.
