Sell unique gifts, jewelry & more
Use mobile POS to assist customers anywhere, including sidewalk sales, throughout a museum or arena, even if your internet connection is down. Import products, drop ship and replenish inventory with automated purchase orders. Offer targeted promotions, BOGOs, coupons and loyalty rewards. Leverage Celerant’s Product Catalog to search through an “endless aisle” of products you may not currently carry, and order them on the POS.
Sell more gift & specialty items online
Launch an integrated eCommerce site as an extension of your store. Fulfill online orders from your stores, and drop ship through your distributors. Increase sales by integrating with online marketplaces (i.e., Amazon, eBay). Send automated, personalized email campaigns based on your customer’s brand preferences and past purchases. Ensure you are aware when low-quantity items are sold in store or online.
