“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 has over 450 clients with locations across the United States, Canada, and in parts of Europe and the Middle East.

OpenCRM UK – Hosted Alternative for Salesforce.com, ACT!, Sage CRM, GoldMine

CRM Software crafters Software Add-ons based in rural North Yorkshire, UK, are delighted with the response to their recession busting marketing campaign for OpenCRM.

The company’s strong mission statement, ‘to bring corporate software technology within the reach of small to medium businesses’ seems to be the key to their success.

Marketing manager Helen Burton revealed ‘we knew we had a strong message, offering license free software, but our campaign has had the phones ringing off the hook!’.

Consumer expectation is driving the mid market business need to get online , OpenCRM’s free license solutions needed to be internet based with portal capability so customers can place and track orders, see cases and issues, download documents & information – Anytime, Anywhere access is a major boost for the previously disconnected workforce.

John Mabley of ITS describes his software as the glue between the systems – ‘I employ home teleworkers and need them to be connected to the office – OpenCRM integrated my telephony system, website and SageLine 50 accounts so that I can get a complete picture of my business day-to-day no matter where I am’.

Managing Director Graham Anderson speaking for the company said ‘all businesses whether corporate or mid market have similar core business processes, Sales & Marketing – Sales Order Processing – Invoicing – Document & Project Management,’ he added that ‘too many software implementations fail because too much money goes into the purchase and licensing of software, by supplying license free on demand software we remove this cost and our clients can put their investment where it should be: requirement analysis ; staff training; and systems integration’.

OpenCRM’s advice, based on years’ of experience, is very clear: Choose a technically sound solution with an open structure (non proprietary database & interface) that will scale and integrate; encourage user uptake – keep IT simple, go for evolution rather than revolution, invest in your people and spend on training; Get rid of as much of the IT headache as you can by having your software systems hosted, managed, updated, secured and backed-up by the professionals.

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.
