"Celerant handles firearms transactions very well, but beyond that they keep you on the front edge especially on the technology and how we deal with the ATF and the FBI...We all got in this business at Jay’s because we have a passion for being outdoors. Our customers have that same passion so we love exchanging the passion and having the product. Celerant is a huge tool in the tool box so we can do it efficiently and hit the mark."
Electronic A&D Book
Streamline ATF Compliance With An Integrated eBound Book And E4473
Celerant’s complete commerce solutions for firearms dealers include an electronic A&D book fully integrated with the POS. The A&D book automatically records every gun sale, allows you to view the history of any firearm, produces ATF-formatted reports and can be backed up daily. Dealers also have the flexibility to integrate their Celerant point of sale with FastBound’s electronic bound book and e4473, backed by FFLGuard for ATF compliance. Our solutions allow 4473 forms to be completed on any device, while processing NICS background checks in minutes. Beyond that, our solutions prevent transactions when form data in invalid and will scan driver licenses to detect fraudulent IDS.
Offer range memberships with recurring billing
To increase sales and loyalty, firearm dealers can offer memberships to individuals, families, law enforcement or military who frequent your shooting range and classes. You can sell multiple levels of membership with recurring billing, both in store and online; print custom photo ID cards; track member data for promotional and email/postal mail marketing – all from the point of sale.
“We are a gun dealer and were looking for a good platform that can grow with our company. Since we went with Celerant, we about doubled our size without having to increase our infrastructure in order to handle those sales. Celerant grows with us and is adaptable. The touch screen POS is intuitive and easy to train new employees on.”

"We talked to other firearms dealers about our system, and they're just amazed at some of the things we can do, and some of the tie-ins and partnerships. It's nice to know that you know the registers are going to start up in the morning, and people are going to be able to process their transactions. In our business, we can't do what we do without a powerful database driven software platform- and that's what we found with Celerant."

But thanks to the advent of technology, firearms dealers can easily maintain compliance, while becoming a significant contributor to the economy.

This is one of the many new partnerships Celerant has developed to help firearm dealers more effectively manage their retail businesses.
We wanted [a POS system] that would not be static and continue to grow and evolve just as we would…Before everything was manual and now we’re able to scan things in, we’re able to print the tags that we need and the staff finds it easy to operate…It has just allowed us to have a better customer experience when they come in. They’re not waiting, things happen immediately when we pull them up…it has just made it a better experience overall.”
