Celerant Technology has surfaced as a truly stand out product based on several key measures

Doug Carden, VP Goodwill NCPP

"Celerant Technology has surfaced as a truly stand out product based on several key measures. Probably most important is their ability to engineer solutions for essentially any of Goodwills unique challenges relating to donations and production to complex retail promotions. Equally as important is the scalability of their product which can equip any size agency at any stage of their evolution with any of a range of tools they would require. All of that makes Celerant a highly recommended POS provider from my vantage point."
