Cumulus Retail Overview

What is Cumulus Retail?

Cumulus Retail is a software platform developed for small and mid-size retailers to help them manage their business operations via a single system. Cumulus features a Getting Started Wizard that helps users with the setup process while the System Configuration option helps users set up the software in a customizable way. Cumulus Retail users can add frequently sold items to the Quick-Select Item Menu to help process sales efficiently. Cumulus allows users to search for products based on descriptions, style, or keywords and permits authorized users to update pricing levels for each item that is entered into the database.

Cumulus Retail supports various registers per store and multi-store tracking. The software accepts a wide range of tender types including checks, cash, debit cards, credit cards, layaway Gift Cards, and Apple Pay. Cumulus Retail can also handle multiple transaction types such as price checks, returns, email receipts, bulk pricing changes, accounts receivable management, hold and recall hold, special orders, and inter-store product transfers.

Cumulus Retail helps users in customer management and creates multiple customer types and categories to effectively manage their activity. Cumulus has an inventory and product management system that helps users import products from the vendor catalog and assign products and department levels. Users can also create templates to help expedite product entry. Cumulus Retail integrates with an Cumulus eCommerce add-on module, which offers a professional layout and design, basic reporting option, and an embedded video option. The premier version of Cumulus eCommerce can be integrated with Walmart Marketplace, Fulfillment by Amazon, and eBay. Cumulus Retail’s cross-platform capability helps customers purchase a product online and return it in-store.

Great products and service!

THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES THEY PROVIDE ARE PORBABLY SOME OF THE BEST OUT THERE. THEY WERE ABLE TO GET ALL OF THE SAME ITEMS I DROPSHIPPED THROUGH RSR GROUP AND PUT THEM ON OUR WEBSITE AND THEY COVERED A LOT OF THE PROCESS. THEY MADE THE TEMPLATE AND TOOK CARE OF THE RED TAPE TYPE OF STUFF, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ADD YOUR PERSONAL FLAIR AND IMAGES TO IT. ONCE YOU GO THROUGH THE TRAINING IT BECOMES A LOT EASIER AND QUICKER TO GET THINGS DONE

THEY CAN BE A BIT PRICEY FOR A SMALL BUSINESS AND YOU WILL NEED TO PLAN ON SPENDING MUCH MORE THAN THE $350 A MONTH AND MAKE SURE YOU READ WHATEVER CONTRACTS THEY HAVE YOU SIGN COMPLETELY. I WAS UNAWARE OF A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS THAT I SIGNED UP FOR AND ONLY REALIZED AFTERWARDS THAT I REALLY COULDNT AFFORD IT LONG TERM.

Great product, with lots of features.

As we were one of the first adopters we had a few issues, but they were addressed in a timely manner. We converted over to Cumulus from Retail Star, and I was a little disappointed that some of the main features that I used on a daily basis were not accessible on day 1. After some updates these features are accessible now.

Pros

Ease of use with a host of features. Cloud based allows for Inventory access from anywhere with Internet access.

Cons

We had the local server option install for redundancy, but this service can be slow at times. Plus any updates to products are not instant.

Pros

I like having the ability to work in remote locations. The pre set reporting helps with inventory control.

Cons

I miss the customizations from Retail Star and the ability to access older information from customer store credits and gift cards.

Response from Celerant Technology

Thanks for the review, Alison! Considering Cumulus is web-based, you can access it from anywhere, anytime- and we're happy to see you are taking advantage of that!

Pros

All my products transfered over to the new data base, my empolyees love our new touchscreen cash register monitor, customer support and training people are awesome to work with! Overall the product is super easy to work with.

Cons

When ordering on a PO I wish there was a way to see "on hand" items on the same screen as the PO. (I heard that this will be in an upcoming update though). Also, I wish I could just hit the ENTER button when doing searches (instead of mousing up to the search button).

Response from Celerant Technology

Thanks for the review, Roxanne! And, yes, we have now added that feature to our software. You can now see "On Hand' items on the same screen as the PO. Hopefully you have already upgraded to our current version, if not- please reach out to our Updates Department and we can schedule your update!
