“The addition of our new West Coast office will augment our already geographically diverse client base and support our desire to penetrate more deeply into different areas of the country with local presence,” stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO. “The result of our continued growth will increase the influx of new opportunities and strengthen relationships with existing clients in these areas.”

The new west coast presence will further enable Celerant to expand within the United States, in that the Washington satellite office will better position Celerant for the local market in this region.

“As the newest member of the Celerant sales team, I look forward to advancing my knowledge of the Celerant system and working alongside all of my new colleagues” said Jim Schneider, Celerant Technology Sales Executive. “I am optimistic about bringing Celerant Command Retail to the attention of west coast retailers and am excited about the opportunity to grow with the company.”

Celerant Technology Celebrates 10 Years in Business

Today Celerant Technology marks its 10th year in business as a leader in the retail software industry. Since October 13, 1999, Celerant has developed advanced software for retailers from a variety of locales and vertical markets.

“To celebrate ten years in business is an important milestone for our company and we are very proud to have reached this pinnacle” stated Celerant Technology President and CEO, Ian Goldman. “We are thankful to have employed such a talented and hard working staff of individuals over the years, to develop and maintain every facet of our software, and provide the outstanding customer service we have become known for. Since starting out as a small retail software provider in Staten Island, NY, we have come a long way, with now 5 satellite offices and 450 clients in various retail markets.”

The Celerant product, Command Retail, manages all areas of a multichannel retail business, from the point of sale on the front end, to inventory management, warehouse, distribution, allocation and advanced reporting on the back end, to seamlessly integrated E-Commerce and mail order/catalog. Celerant Technology has been recognized by several trade publications and continuously receives top scores in industry rankings. This year alone, the RIS News Leaderboard ranked Celerant as the #1 Mid Sized Retail Software vendor and the #4 Overall Top Retail Software, the CPA Advisor recognized Celerant with the highest scores for every category in the annual POS review, the Aberdeen Research Group included Celerant in their Best-in-Class POS Axis Report, and Celerant placed even higher than last year on the Inc. 5,000 List of fastest growing private companies.

“Ten years ago today when Ian and I established Celerant Technology, there wasn’t software like ours on the market,” stated Celerant Technology’s CFO. “We knew that the idea behind the Celerant system would serve as an excellent solution for retailers, but, like any new business, it was difficult to say if our company would be a success. Now, we can say that because we’ve worked hard over the past decade to produce a high quality product, we’ve been able to make a highly recognized name for ourselves in the retail software industry. As for the future, I believe that Celerant has the potential for continued growth and I look forward to an even greater level of success in the years to come.”

Since starting out as a small Staten Island software provider in 1999, Celerant has grown in technological advancements and in size, while offering a complete application for retailers. In addition to its main office in Staten Island, Celerant has satellite offices in Georgia, Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio and Washington State.

Celerant Chosen To Implement Complete Software Solution For The U.S. Naval Fleet

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.

Celerant Technology’s 2009 User Conference in Orlando

Celerant Technology’s 2009 User Conference was held May 7-8 at the beautiful Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida! Last year we again allowed our clients to vote for where they wanted the event to be held and received an overwhelming response for sunny Orlando. This year’s conference included a similar format to last year’s line-up of break-out sessions, training sessions, and workshops. In an effort to enhance learning, more training sessions and open discussions were added to increase interaction between moderators and attendees.

Paul Rowe of Whole Earth Provision, based in Austin, TX said “The conferences get better every year. It’s a great advantage to get a chance to talk personally with the people in sales, support, and development that we work with all year. There are levels of communication that just can’t be achieved through email and telephone calls. We get a chance to compare experiences and share solutions, tricks, and shortcuts with other customers too, which is always valuable. This year, we got a chance for some hands-on time with the latest and greatest version just released. In sheer dollars, the value of what we learn is more than the cost of attending. And, by participating in the customization breakout sessions, we also get a great chance to have input on a new feature and solidify our working relationship with those involved in development.”

“The 2009 User Conference was the first for our company and I am glad we went,” added Chris Simons, IT Manager for Mast General Store. “The sessions were all very informative and not only helped us with our everyday operations but we were also able to meet and talk with other users of the software. The ability to network with other companies facing the same challenges as we are is a tremendous asset that can only help us to improve and grow as a company. It was also great meeting the people we’ve been talking to but never had a face to put with the voice. I am looking forward to the upcoming changes in the software and to the User Conference next year.”

Tim Heinzen, President of Barney’s Police and Hunting Supply said “I thought the conference was GREAT! We always learn something new and it was very refreshing to see so many updates come to fruition. The company does listen to its customers’ needs. The conference in and of itself is awesome to be able to meet and collaborate with other users and it is more than worth it. Fantastic job and keep up the good work!” Kevin Senecal, President of Divers Direct agreed “It was very exciting to learn about the direction of future enhancements to the Celerant product. An additional benefit to this event was the opportunity to learn how other retailers are using Celerant. It was very enlightening for our entire team that attended.”

The 2009 User Conference was an educational and networking opportunity for clients, and also a way for Celerant professionals to create a closer relationship with each of the clients in attendance. More training sessions, break-out sessions and interactive workshops were added, including a hands-on workshop to look at the new features in Celerant Command. Every session was pre-selected by each attendee. More open discussions were also encouraged throughout each session.

“Our 2009 Celerant User Conference was a definite success,” stated Ian Goldman, CEO/President of Celerant Technology. “Every year we strive to make a positive impact on our clients and provide them with an educational and interactive environment where they can learn more about the system and work one-on-one with our staff. In addition to the New Features presentation, we introduced a hands-on workshop for users to actually ‘try out’ these new features, many of which were suggestions for development modifications f r o m last year’s conference. At Celerant we strive to create retail software that exceeds the needs of our clients and look forward to the continued feedback throughout the year.” Research has already begun to determine the location for next year’s User Conference and we will once again allow our clients to vote on their city of choice. We hope that next year’s conference will be another great success!
