“We partnered with Celerant to provide our SSL members with just that- a point of sale for store operations, combined with a strong rental application and integrations, plus a fully-integrated and powerful eCommerce solution"
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 11, 2021
Celerant Technology, a leading provider of innovative retail solutions, is now the recommended software provider for Sports Specialists Ltd. (SSL), a retailer-owned buying group representing ski, snowboard, outdoor, apparel and the footwear industries. Through this partnership, SSL members can leverage Celerant’s point of sale and eCommerce solutions, along with industry partner integrations and expert consultation, to strengthen and grow their retail businesses in store and online.
“The ski and snowboard retail industries have a real need for an all-in-one system,” stated Dave Nacke, President & CEO, Sports Specialists, Ltd. “We partnered with Celerant to provide our SSL members with just that- a point of sale for store operations, combined with a strong rental application and integrations, plus a fully-integrated and powerful eCommerce solution. Celerant also brings our dealers newer features that ski shops currently need, such as curbside pickup.”
Modern point of sale and rental software for ski & snowboard shops
Celerant offers innovative technology to SSL retailers, enabling them to manage their entire store in one system. Through Celerant’s point of sale, SSL retailers can access and import product catalogs from major outdoor sporting goods distributors, such as NILS™ Sportswear, Liberty Mountain™, Giant Bicycle™ and more. Ski shops and resorts can also manage inventory and purchase orders; promotions and loyalty rewards; classes and online reservations; team sports and embroidery; and rentals and repairs. With an internal rental management module, and optional integrations to third-party solutions, such as Easyrent™ by Wintersteiger and Rezo Rentals™ (coming soon), retailers have the flexibility to choose the solution that works best for their business. With features such as mobile point of sale and contactless payments, SSL retailers can also better serve their customers now, the way they want to be served.
Powerful, integrated eCommerce for SSL members
SSL members can leverage Celerant’s integrated eCommerce to manage their brick-and-mortar sales, rentals, and website as one. With such a heavy shift currently to online sales, SSL retailers can launch their website quickly by having Celerant pull and display online product data feeds from distributors, such as NILS and Liberty Mountain. SSL retailers can fulfill online orders through drop shipping; home delivery; Buy Online, Pickup In Store (BOPIS), as well with Celerant’s new Curbside Pickup Application.
“Since several SSL members are already Celerant clients, partnering with Sports Specialists Ltd. seemed natural,” stated Ian Goldman, President & CEO, Celerant Technology. “At the request of our long-term, valuable ski/snowboard retail clients, we continue to add new features and niche integrations to our software. We are eager to have the opportunity to bring our technology and new enhancements to the entire SSL group through their virtual show; and at their physical shows, which we are all looking forward to attending again soon.”
