Bookstore POS System


Book stores require specialized point of sale software to handle the vast variety of books, specialty items, and unique products they sell.

Celerant’s user friendly software, complete with direct integrations to industry leading distributors, is designed to streamline your in store & online book store operations.

"Cumulus made it much more user-friendly, especially for someone learning a new business from the start, having never done anything in business before. It really paired things down to what was important. We love it because it’s simple and user-friendly. We can have conversations with our customers while checking them out. Celerant offers very good technical support, so I can get back to what we really love, which is helping our customers."
