"One of the key benefits of the Stratus vendor integration is that now I have my vendors and big suppliers, such as Emery Jensen and Orgill, and am able to import their catalog into our system, and also orders are able to be imported on a weekly basis- which saves me at least 10-20 hours a week. Another feature which is crucial to our business is corporate billing; with Stratus I am able to email them their statement and their invoices with signature. With our new website, they will be able to go online and into their portal and pay online. Now our business will be able to go even further than we have grown so far. After using Celerant for close to 15 years now, I wouldn't start a new hardware store without Celerant."

Make sales from the showroom floor with mobile POS
With a mobile POS device that integrates directly with your hardware shop retail software, you can assist customers anywhere in the store or on side walk sales. Our system allows you to look up prices, access inventory levels, process sales with EMV chip card readers, accept returns, put sales on hold, offer gift receipts, accept gift cards, create layaways and more.
Promotions & Incentives
Offer promotions based on seasonal demands
The demand for hardware supplies varies by season, as certain outdoor projects are more attractive to tackle in warm months than the cold ones. To ensure contractors and individuals choose your hardware store over others, use our hardware store point-of-sale and retail management solutions to offer targeted and seasonal promotions.
Incentivize contractors with loyalty reward programs
Solidify your partnerships with contractors and individuals who frequent hardware and paint stores with reward clubs and loyalty programs that help maintain customer loyalty and improve sales. Loyalty rewards can be earned for in store and online purchases and are viewable by the cashier at the POS. Using data from the hardware store point-of-sale, coupons can be targeted to people based on prior purchases, top customers and to customers with a gift card balance.
Import products and reorder inventory with automated POs
Based on your hardware supply and paint vendors, you can browse catalogs, select the products you want to sell and import the product descriptions and images into our commerce solutions. We integrate our point-of-sale software with vendors such as Orgill and Emery Jensen, to eliminate the need for hardware retailers to have to manually enter their product data. Additionally, you can print tags, change prices, customize product categories, make inventory adjustments and transfer merchandise easily. Inventory can also be replenished based on min/max levels with automated purchase orders to your participating vendors.
Launch and promote a hardware eCommerce site
Launch an eCommerce website that operates seamlessly with your hardware or paint store. Easily create pages using drag-and-drop features, post items and have orders flow right into your retail system. Expand your online sales by integrating with popular online marketplaces such as Walmart or Amazon, or by sending out personalized email marketing campaigns to your customers based on their past purchases and preferences.
