Celerant’s Firearms POS Hits the Mark
It is no secret that the firearms industry is in major flux at the moment. In the wake of recent tragedies, there is a lot of discussion inside the Beltway about how – and if – changes to gun control policies in this country could prevent future incidents. In anticipation of potential drastic shifts in gun policy, the firearms market has been booming lately, as gun enthusiasts stock up on weapons that could potentially be subject to tighter regulations in the near future. According to The Washington Post, 2012 was a record year in the firearms market, with a projected growth of more than 8% over the previous year. It seems likely that we can expect a similar trend in 2013.
In this booming firearms market, retailers in the gun industry need a targeted point-of-sale solution that will allow them to handle all the complicated regulations as well as manage all the front- and back-end processes businesses need to run smoothly. One such POS solution is Command Retail from Celerant Technology. Celerant has been providing full-feature retail solutions for over 13 years, and has served the firearms industry with specifically-targeted software platforms for the last seven years. Particularly when you consider the complicated licensing, registration, and record-keeping demands necessary for firearms dealerships, Celerant’s Command Retail is a winning solution because it was among the first to provide ATF-compliant Acquisition and Distribution books.
Celerant’s CEO Ian Goldman confirms that the company has its ear to the ground in regards to the specific needs of the retail gun industry: “The firearms industry is heavily regulated and requires detail management software that enables efficiency and compliance. 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 makes it easy to provide the right data for the ATF’s Industry Operations Investigators.”
It is safe to assume that the future will only bring further complications of the existing registration and regulation requirements. Businesses in the firearms industry require more than just your average POS solution. When selecting a point of sale platform for your business, make sure you consider the complex demands of your particular industry, whether it is hospitality, general retail, or a specific retail niche like firearms. Each industry brings its own set of demands, and choosing a POS solution that offers uniquely aimed functionality can only boost your business’ potential over the long term. It is clear that Celerant’s history of working with the firearms industry gives it an edge in a field of POS providers serving a wide range of markets.
