The Children’s Shop (Atlanta, GA) used Profit$ for over 20 years. They decided to switch retail solutions to help them advance and modernize. This was a big change since they used the same software for so many years. They chose Cumulus Retail from Celerant because it offered everything they needed in a single solution, including payment processing from OpenEdge. With the help of Celerant’s Support Team and quick turnaround time from OpenEdge, the transition was seamless.

“We were with another retail provider [Profit$] for many years, and it was time to change; we were becoming a little stagnant. Transitioning to Cumulus Retail was exceptionally easy… We were nervous, but Support made it so easy for us. We are so pleased with the product; it really allows us to spend time where we want to be- and that’s on the sales floor.”

Vicki Davis, Co-owner, The Children’s Shop
