Product Highlights at Kiosk Summit 2018

Cash Desk K2 Slim
Retaining all the features of a multi-payment kiosk for the issuance of receipts and/or tickets, Cash Desk K2 Slim is an automatic device specifically destined for electronic payments. Eliminating the task of handling cash transactions results in a product that’s thinner and smoother in the movements. The device boasts a fast and simple user interface, indicating each operation to be carried out step by step with the aid of visual indicators (LEDs). A multi-lingual and interactive menu allows customers to pay for their goods or services in three easy steps.

For the merchant, the self-service Cask Desk K2 Slim can significantly improve and streamline operations so that long queues are avoided, cash handling is eliminated, and staffing requirements and labour cost are reduced. For the catering industry, hygiene can be improved as the person responsible for preparing foods no longer needs to handle physical money.

ATOS 15 ELEGANT
ATOS 15 Elegant combines pure elegance with high-end technology and comes with a 16:9 fully adjustable monitor that is supported by the stability of a solid chrome-effect base. Efficient hardware coupled with intelligent software makes ATOS 15 Elegant the ideal tool for any Point of Sale. The unit comes with an optional rear customer display that completes its maximum expression of functional elegance. This customer display is available in two different sizes, allowing the merchant to either present the customer with a list of purchased items or alternatively to display its own graphics visualising the consumptions on sale. This back graphic display can be cleverly used as an advertising tool to broadcast the latest news and in-store promotions, giving added value to any POS.

Multiple connections including Ethernet, USB and Micro SD allowing the ATOS 15 Elegant to pair with printers, tablets and scanners are all standard. An NFC reader, an MFC magnetic card and an I-Button are additional options with this innovative and eye-catching POS system.

Celerant Technology’s Retail Management Software Brings out the Big Guns

Celerant Technology Corp has been a premium retail software provider for over 13 years, and has served the firearms industry for the past seven. Celerant was one of the first software companies to provide ATF compliant Electronic Acquisition & Disposition books to help gun retailers access their sales history faster and keep more accurate records.

“The firearms industry is heavily regulated and requires retail management software that enables efficiency and compliance,” said Ian Goldman, President and CEO of Celerant Technology. “In order to allow firearm dealers to run their businesses from one complete system, Command Retail has integrated Electronic A&D books to eliminate redundancy and error, as well as customized reporting that make it easy to provide the right data for the ATF’s Industry Operations Investigators.”

Celerant Technology’s latest version of its retail software, Command Retail v6.4, has added new features to expedite daily procedures for FFLs (Federal Firearms Licenses). At the point of sale, serial numbers are automatically incremented and the firearm is added to the integrated Electronic A&D book upon purchase, eliminating the manual process of the physical bound book. Driver’s license scanning verifies a customer’s age and ensures that the sale of restricted items is compliant with ATF regulations, as well as populates the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) module with customer demographics and purchase history. To improve customer-facing services and reduce wait times at the register when making a purchase, Celerant also offers a Mobile POS that runs Command Retail’s redesigned, user-friendly POS screen.

“We have been using Celerant’s retail management system for our firearms company since 2008. The Point of Sale in Celerant has been a tremendous help in quickly processing our customer while populating the disposition of the firearm instantly into the [Electronic] A&D book,” said Celerant client Jeff Poet, owner of Jay’s Sporting Goods. “All the data is consistent across our two store locations and integrated E-Commerce site, making it a great tool for finding detailed information quickly.”

Celerant’s new features in the recently released version of Command Retail is a step in the right direction, but talks of future versions will be the total package for the firearms industry. During the 2013 Shooting Hunting Outdoor Tradeshow (SHOT Show), Celerant met with the board members of the ATF to discuss improving the retail software. Celerant developers are now working on several advancements, including a Form 4473 that auto-populates customer demographics from Command Retail’s CRM. Range scheduling is also anticipated.

This year presented a restructured format providing clients with the option to attend an added session. Several additions were also made to the list of session choices for this year, including two interactive New Features Workshops, as well as new sessions on E-Commerce, Team Sports, and General Ledger.

“I found the Celerant User Conference to be an excellent learning environment to expand my abilities and knowledge of the software,” stated Dan Kastelman, CFO of Devi Kroell. “It’s great to be able to share ideas with the Celerant staff and other Celerant clients. The sessions are extremely dedicated and informative, and highly relevant to the needs of my company. I look forward to next year’s event and upcoming enhancements to the software.”

“It’s great to see old Celerant friends and meet new ones face to face,” stated Charlie Rochman, Business Manager for Buffalo Exchange. “Our team picked up some great information that should help us in our operations.”

“As in years past, the 2011 Celerant User Conference once again proved to be extremely beneficial,” said C&W Shoes CFO, Will Brooks. “I am not only more informed of the uses of the software but I am also more resolved in knowing that we have aligned with the right company. Far from complacent, the software continues to be innovative and the passion of the Celerant team towards continued improvement is refreshing.”

Research has already begun to determine the location for next year’s User Conference and the Celerant clients will again vote on their city of choice. With the clients’ feedback from this year’s event, there will be many new concepts introduced to make next year’s event an even greater success.
