Financial System Integrations

Prior to Celerant, we didn’t have a formalized polling process in place.

Using the software has enabled us to be more efficient when polling and sending items to bail. It also allowed us to have color of the week sales, which we didn’t have before.

Ease of Training for New Employees

We have seen that the system is very easy to use, our cashiers have picked up on it very quickly. A typical customer transaction takes less than half the amount of time it used to take with our previous system.

Improved Processes with Better Reporting

In my role, I’ve been using the software for a little over two years and I found that the reporting features have changed the way that we look at items on the floor and basically, do business and make decisions.
