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.

This list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”

Celerant Technology has continued to expand further within the retail software industry, providing an advanced multichannel solution, along with a high level of service and ingenuity to clients for the past ten years.

We look forward to what the future will bring and to continuing our ascent up this prestigious list.”

The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding; making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.

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.

Intelligent web plug-in tracks customer intent in real-time and optimizes delivery of product offers from affiliate networks

EchoCurrent Software, Inc. today announced the availability of the Affiliate Product Optimizer™, a software service to enable web publishers to better optimize product and ad targeting f r o m affiliate networks. This product is free of charge and initially available for new or existing users of the Commission Junction® affiliate network.

Web publishers are increasingly relying on affiliate networks to source products and offers in support of their topic-based web sites, blogs, or online stores. Unlike Google AdSense®, which will automatically match ads to the content of each web page, sites which rely on affiliate networks have lacked the ability to do automated matching of customer interests to products, or have been forced to build custom solutions.

With the introduction of the Affiliate Product Optimizer™, publishers gain the ability to understand their visitors’ interests in real-time and display optimal, personalized product offers f r o m affiliate networks. By truly listening to website visitors’ words and actions, publishers can increase their revenues by showing their customers the most relevant products at just the right time.

The Affiliate Product Optimizer™ goes much further than standard search or page ads by building a unique profile of each web site visitor as they interact with the web site, a“Customer Echo”. The Echo is continually refined over the life of the user session. Rather than using static page content to match offers, the Customer Echo is used to select the most appropriate offers f r o m the affiliate network, specific to each visitor. This provides each visitor with a unique and optimized experience based on their personal browsing interests and exhibited site behaviors.

Initially released with support for the Commission Junction® network, and using the Commission Junction® Web Services, the Affiliate Product Optimizer™ easily plugs into a publisher’s website by adding a pre-generated piece of javascript to the page. In addition, plugins are available for  WordPress and the Joomla content management system, allowing this new capability to be easily added to these popular platforms without touching any code.

The Affiliate Product Optimizer is being initially released free of charge and operates in the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. Website publishers sign up at echocurrent.com, add the plugin to their web sites, and the EchoCurrentservers handle the rest. EchoCurrent provides tools and reports that make the publishers’ lives easy, tracking, for example, trends in the Customer Echoes, products of highest interest, and what web content is driving the most product click-throughs. With this valuable information, publishers optimize their site content to generate more revenue.

“Coming f r o m a background in business intelligence technology at the enterprise level, it was clear to me there was a big opportunity to make affiliate sites smarter” says Mike Ruggieri, founder and president of EchoCurrent Software, Inc. “By combining our Customer Intent Engine with the Commission Junction Web Services, we were able to build a powerful affiliate optimization widget that can drive higher revenues for site publishers while simultaneously improving the customer experience for all visitors.”

About EchoCurrent Software, Inc.
Founded in 2008, EchoCurrent Software is dedicated to delivering technology that makes web sites smarter. EchoCurrent has developed a proprietary Customer Intent Engine that can track user behavior in real-time, identifying patterns, capturing data, or reacting to events as they occur. The company has released its first product, the Affiliate Product Optimizer, which utilizes their Customer Intent Engine with affiliate network services to enable web publishers to make more effective use of their affiliate product catalogs and create higher value customer experiences.
