How Team Sports Retailer Enhances Business with Stratus Retail

SVS Logo
``Being where our customers are is a big part of our business, and mobile POS lets us swipe credit cards and manage inventory in real-time, the same way we would process inside a physical store. In addition, the amount of time we saved using Celerant's Best Store Fulfillment module is immeasurable. We used to manually process each incoming order, figure out the optimal store to fulfill from, and notify that store by email. It took hours every day; there's just no way we could handle the volume we have today without auto-routing the order to have fulfilled.``
-Nick Rhoads IT Manager at Schuylkill Valley Sports

  • IoT-Enabled POS

  • Make faster and smarter decisions by connecting Celerant’s POS with other “connected” platforms! For example, connect with Amazon’s pricing analytics; receive vendor data feeds; arm your staff with mobile devices; access the POS on the Cloud or on various operating systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows®, Mac); and integrate with automated inventory/fulfillment applications. By communicating with IoT apps in real-time, you can improve every aspect of your business – from cutting costs to increasing sales.

  • Mobile POS

  • Take your business anywhere with Celerant’s mobile Point of Sale application! The mobile POS offers merchants a convenient and cost-effective way of managing their business, whether at a sidewalk sale, trade show, or helping a customer in-aisle. No installation required! All you need is a mobile device and an internet connection to get up-and-running and start processing sales immediately. The POS can be installed on iPads/iPhones and Android devices, and it accepts Apple Pay/Android Pay. Read More »

  • SaaS/Cloud POS

  • Host the POS in-store or in the Cloud with a SaaS option, offering the flexibility and cost benefits a retailer needs! Unlike most Cloud retail solutions, Celerant offers a ‘Cloud Plus’ option ensuring you can operate without interruption should internet connectivity go down. If internet is lost, your sales staff can continue accessing all POS functions via a local in-store server, allowing them to ring up sales, and look up customers, inventory, pricing, promotions and more.

  • POS Security & EMV

  • Give your customers the security they deserve! Celerant’s POS integrates with EMV devices (chip card readers) that use point-to-point encryption (P2PE) to secure data at the point of entry. That way, sensitive cardholder information never appears in your system’s memory. Celerant also offers data tokenization to further secure payment data sent between the merchant and the bank. POS security not only protects customer data, it reduces fraudulent activity, charge-backs and the scope of a PCI audit. Read More »

  • Fully-Integrated POS

  • Access everything you need from the Point of Sale in real-time! You can access everything you need directly from the POS screen. For example, look-up inventory; update pricing/promotions; process high-volume transactions; manage rentals/repairs; and offer/accept gift cards and loyalty rewards earned in-store or online. POS transactions occur in real-time, reflecting all stores and website immediately. Stratus Retail also integrates with popular POS hardware (i.e., touch PCs, EMVs, MSRs, receipt printers, cash drawers, scanners).

  • Customizable POS

  • Tailor the point of sale to your business! Stratus Retail’s POS is fully-customizable to the way you operate your business. For example, you can grant/restrict access to various POS features through user permissions. Merchants can also define fields and field values; create a product matrix with an unlimited number of colors/styles; and customize the levels of your taxonomy to make it easier and more efficient to manage merchandise.
