At SHOT Show, Celerant Technology and NSSF Promote Partnership to Support Project ChildSafe and Firearm Safety


Firearm retailers can learn about Celerant’s FFL point of sale and ecommerce software with built-in Project ChildSafe donation options at SHOT Show Booth #42502

Celerant-PCS-NSSFLAS VEGAS — During the SHOT Show®, Celerant® Technology and the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) are encouraging firearm retailers to support NSSF’s Project ChildSafe® program and firearm safety through Celerant’s point of sale and/or ecommerce software that allows dealers to easily accept donations and round-ups during checkout.

Celerant (Booth #42502) provides an all-in-one, point-of-sale and ecommerce solution to many retailers in the industry, and now the company has pre-loaded into its latest software a checkout option allowing customers to either round up to the nearest dollar or to choose a specific denomination to donate in support of Project ChildSafe. Retailers simply have to turn on the donation software option, in their point-of-sale and/or ecommerce, to begin their support of the country’s leading firearm safety education program.

During SHOT Show, Celerant representatives will demonstrate the new Project ChildSafe option to retailers and encourage its use so that Project ChildSafe messages about safe handling and storage of firearms can be expanded even further nationwide. NSSF is providing opportunities to help Celerant reach show attendees through the use of SHOT TV, the SHOT Daily publication and social media.

As part of its support of Project ChildSafe at SHOT Show, Celerant will be offering the first month of point of sale and/or eCommerce SaaS free, plus 20% off training, 10% off hardware and free credit card terminals at SHOT Show 2022. Visit their booth (#42502) to learn more.

“The benefit of our partnership is that we can work even closer with an industry that we respect and support,” stated Michele Salerno, Director of Marketing, Asst. VP of Celerant Technology Corp. “Our goal is to provide those who care about gun safety an opportunity to give back and support safety education efforts at the community level, while making it simple for retailers to facilitate.”

“This partnership allows the industry to support our firearm safety education efforts by offering Celerant customers an easy-to-use, point-of-sale donation option at no cost to the business,” says Joe Bartozzi, Chairman of Project ChildSafe Foundation and President & CEO of NSSF. “Firearm safety is a bedrock of our industry and the gun-owning community, and we are grateful to Celerant and all our donors for their commitment to reducing firearm accidents, thefts and misuse.”

Developed by NSSF, Project ChildSafe is dedicated to promoting responsible firearm handling and secure storage by distributing safety education messages and free firearm safety kits in all 50 states and the U.S. territories.

Celerant Technology is a preferred retail software provider of the NSSF and has provided point-of-sale software to the firearm industry for over 20 years.

Industry retailers and ranges who want to help support Project ChildSafe are encouraged to participate in this cooperative effort.
