“Here at Heroic Knight Games, we were ready to move to an on-demand software. I researched several other point-of-sale alternatives, but the Cumulus Retail system really stood out. Their team converted our sales, customer and product data, performed live training sessions and provided us with a vast array of short training videos for my staffs’ future reference.”

“John Avery, who is one of the Customer Care Project Managers, and Tandy Trujillo, who is one of the Implementation Managers, were assigned to my onboarding process, and have been invaluable in making our transition process as smooth as possible. We already see improved efficiencies in my store even after only being live for a couple of weeks and I look forward to a partnership for years to come.”

"Buying an established business has it's benefits and drawbacks but using Celerant's retail system allowed our store to update some of the previous systems quickly and efficiently. One of my favorite features of the Celerant point of sale system is the integrated buyers club. It helped my business update and keep track of our customers purchases while allowing me to anticipate their needs. As a working mom, it makes my days less stressful when I can check in on sales and sale trends when I'm away from the office."
