Staten Island, NY (October 7, 2020) – Celerant Technology, the #1 provider of innovative retail software for the firearms industry, today announced that the company contributed approximately half of data in support of SCOPE CLX, a data-sharing program for FFL dealers. As a preferred point of sale vendor for NASGW, firearm retailers can participate in SCOPE CLX through Celerant’s point of sale solution- enabling them to share retail data, and obtain valuable analytics in return.

What is SCOPE CLX?
Celerant is a preferred point of sale provider for SCOPE CLX, an industry-fueled program that supports businesses in the shooting sports industry. Managed by the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW), SCOPE CLX collects and aggregates point of sale data from Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) retailers across the country. The aggregated data, which is completely anonymous, provides information about product performance, consumer demand and market trends in the FFL market. Through Celerant’s point of sale, dealers can share transaction data with SCOPE CLX, and access monthly reports provided by SCOPE CLX.
To launch SCOPE CLX, NASGW partnered with Celerant for its large market share of FFL retailers. Through the partnership, NASGW is able to collect and analyze retail sales data from already almost 100 stores in the shooting stores industry, with Celerant making up approximately half of the analytics within SCOPE CLX. As a result, NASGW can provide its participating dealers with a clearer picture of sales trends at the retail level, and continue growing its SCOPE CLX project.


"After months of diligent work, the release of SCOPE CLX Retail Reports is here," says Easton Kuboushek, NASGW Director of Data Programs. "We're excited to offer this free information on product sales for the benefit of FFL dealers, and to begin new chapter of market analysis in our industry. The success of our program is thanks to partners like Celerant and their dealers; thank you to already over 100 opt-in Celerant clients for your partnerships— we wouldn't be here without your trust and support!"
