"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."

"We were with another retail provider for many years. It came time for us to think about some changes we needed to make within the store; we were becoming a little stagnant and needed to become a little more technologically advanced. Transitioning to Cumulus was exceptionally easy.. we were very nervous about it. The support team has made it so easy for myself and my staff to get it up and going from the day we launched up until today. We are so pleased with the product, that it really allows us to spend time where we want to be- and that's on the sales floor."
Create special orders for custom items and out-of-stocks
With our toy shop POS or hobby shop point-of-sale software and retail management solutions, you can easily offer special orders for customers; just specify the item, quantity, unit cost, shipping destination, method and vendor. Then, accept an initial down payment and markdown the price or offer free shipping as an incentive. Our solution will then send an automated PO to your vendor for the special order.

“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.”
