Epicor Software introduces the general availability of the Epicor Range Management solution, as well as an array of newly integrated firearms functionality for Epicor Eagle N Series software and the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application, created in collaboration with Orchid Advisors. Epicor Range Management is an automated solution with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface built specifically for the management of gun ranges. The cloud-based tool offers real-time analytical information at a glance to assist in monitoring lane usage and berm extraction.
Epicor Range Management software is designed for optimized web-enabled mobile devices and tablets, offering employees and range officers a simple mobile solution to service more customers. Additional features include SMS texting, automatic payment management and the ability to manage liability waivers.
“Currently, the majority of firearms businesses are not using an automated solution to manage their shooting range,” said Bill Wilson, Epicor SVP, product development. “Manual processes can cause inefficiencies, safety concerns and other unnecessary interruptions to the overall management of firearms retailers and ranges. These challenges can be resolved with our new firearms software and functionality — leading to increased sales and significant improvements to the customer experience.”
Frontier Justice, based in Lee’s Summit, Mo., recently launched FFL Compliance Manager and Eagle N Series software. Range Check-In Supervisor Rebecca Davis commented on its new functionality.
“The Epicor Range Management system is user-friendly and features easy-to-read descriptions for setting up ranges, bays and lanes, and training others on system capabilities,” she said. “Limited pop-up windows make navigation a breeze and actions are seamless from one to another. Easy-to-access buttons and shortcuts make transactions of all types efficient. It has eliminated the need to write down rentals, times or names, all while recording necessary transaction information. We are pleased with the time savings and transaction efficiency it offers our range.”
Celerant Integrates With RSR
Celerant Technology has announced its integration with RSR Group. This integration — available through Stratus Retail and Cumulus Retail — enables FFL retailers to streamline their inventory supply chain, for both in-store and online sales.
(Cumulus Retail is a new Cloud-based, SaaS solution for FFL retailers with low monthly maintenance; it is the starter package for Celerant’s enterprise system, Stratus Retail.)
Through this integration, dealers can import RSR Group’s product catalog into their Celerant POS and automate purchase orders for replenishment based on their minimum/maximum inventory levels. Dealers can then offer broader product lines on their e-commerce sites, without stocking the inventory, by populating RSR’s available inventory on their sites, pulling product descriptions and images. Orders are then automatically sent to RSR for fulfillment and drop shipping.
“Our partnership with RSR Group brings great value to the firearms industry. With the introduction of Cumulus Retail to the market, Celerant can now cater to both the small and larger dealers,” said Ian Goldman, Celerant Technology CEO.
“Integrating our retail software with RSR allows dealers of any size to automate once manual processes and save time when entering products and creating purchase orders for replenishment. Through our drop shipping integration, dealers now can sell more products by better leveraging the abundant resources made available to them by their distributors.”
Firearms dealers using Celerant’s retail systems can take advantage of this integration for their store and/or e-commerce. For brick-and-mortar dealers, selected RSR product data is imported electronically to build the POS database, with automated purchase orders followed by acknowledgements back from RSR. The online integration includes live vendor feeds from RSR that are displayed on the dealer’s own website, and are available for drop shipping directly to customers.
RSR Group Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Browning to its product offering. A variety of Browning handguns, shotguns and rifles are now in stock and available for purchase.
