Celerant offers merchandise planning by integrating POS software with Management One to help retailers forecast inventory and maximize profits
Staten Island, NY (February 6, 2019) – Celerant Technology, a leading provider of retail management solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Management One™, a leading provider of open-to-buy and merchandise planning solutions, to enable both small and large retailers to forecast inventory, control budgets, optimize sales and maximize profits.
Cost-effective and accurate merchandise planning for SMB retailers
Celerant offers two retail solutions – Stratus Enterprise™, a comprehensive and customizable solution integrating all channels in real-time; and Cumulus Retail™, an affordable and scalable SaaS point of sale with eCommerce. With these solutions, retailers can manage their store, website, marketplace integrations and digital marketing– all in a single platform. Through Celerant’s integration with Management One, data is automatically transferred from Celerant’s point of sale database to Management One in real-time, including inventory, sales, accounting and financial data. Leveraging this data, Management One’s Retail Experts can conduct a deep dive analysis of a retailers business and help them determine accurate inventory levels and reorder points; optimize sales and markdown strategies; and identify new growth opportunities. In addition, Management One provides retailers with a snapshot of their business, including benchmarking, sales trends, inventory turnover, profit margins, debt-to-worth ratio, store performance, and a review of other touchpoints.
“We are excited to partner with Celerant Technology, and help their retail customers become even more profitable. Through our open-to-buy services, we can improve their financial well-being, and even customize a plan for those who are behind in their payables and other expenses.”
– Marc Weiss, CEO & Co-Founder, Management ONE
Integrated open-to-buy and point of sale retail solution
Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, Management One will create a custom program to ensure the financial success of each retailer, with 94% accuracy when followed correctly. Management One can also customize a plan for those retailers who are behind in their payables and other expenses. Using Celerant’s retail system, retailers can easily implement a strategy based on Management One’s recommendations. Retailers can easily set up minimum/maximum thresholds and automate the reordering process with their distributors when inventory is low; allocate merchandise to the stores that need it most; create markdowns and personalized promotions to get rid of excess inventory and increase sales; optimize staff schedules and time-off to reduce labor overhead; and more.
We understand that tight inventory control is crucial to the success for any retailer. Through our new integration, our point of sale system is continuously sending Management One the valuable data it needs from our clients, in real-time, eliminating the need for the retailer to manually send reports. Our comprehensive inventory management system, combined with Management One’s inventory planning and expert consulting, ensures retailers order the right products, at the right time- in order to maintain tight control of their spending.”
– Ian Goldman, President and CEO of Celerant Technology
