4 Reasons Retailers Choose CLOUD4RETAIL https://www.pexels.com/photo/ball-bright-close-up-clouds-207489/

Just three years ago, we officially launched CLOUD4RETAIL at EuroCIS 2018. Since that first splash, CLOUD4RETAIL has been used worldwide to power the modern retail experience, from touchless mobile payments to personalized digital engagements.  

Our product continues to evolve to meet the market and while there are many reasons our customers select CLOUD4RETAIL, there are four we hear time and time again. 

One: We continually defend our position in worldwide POS installations 

In October, RBR’s Global POS Software 2020 study revealed that GK Software confirmed its market position as the leader in new POS installations.  

The report analyzed global point-of-sale installations of more than 75 vendors in six regions. In addition to receiving the top position in new retail installations, we were ranked sixth in total POS installations. 

Across Europe, RBR found that we were responsible for more new installations than any other provider, with a total share of 20%. 

Two: We offer one POS for all retail formats 

CLOUD4RETAIL is the only POS to provide an enterprise-class, unified platform for every retail format: from quick- and full-service restaurants and convenience, to grocery, fashion and fuel.  

According to McKinsey & Company, “The COVID-19 pandemic has reset the retail game board. The most successful retailers will be those that connect with consumers in new ways by leaning in on their digital, omnichannel and in-store technology ambitions.” 

Our all-in-one platform is the only solution on the market that provides a single solution, eliminating the need for multiple POS systems and enabling rapid innovation. Plus, CLOUD4RETAIL is a headless commerce solution, ensuring retailers benefit from easy updates and new integrations. 

Three: We help retailers drive global growth  

As an open platform for retailers operating globally, CLOUD4RETAIL is used in more than 60 countries and meets all legal requirements. 

Consider our customer Tally Weijl, an international fashion retailer with more than 900 stores in 38 countries, plus a comprehensive online offering.  

Tally Weijl selected CLOUD4RETAIL to interact with its customers across all channels and drive international growth. One of the essential building blocks is the centralized store-level GK Software solution, which can be customized in line with country-specific requirements.

Four: We offer Omnibasket, which opens the door for growth 

The Omnibasket Developers Portal, launched early this year, makes it easy for third-party solution providers to easily integrate their applications with CLOUD4RETAIL.  

This provides flexibility and growth opportunities for retailers, who can choose from a growing number of applications that complement and easily integrate with GK. 

“The GK Software Omnibasket developer portal and Innovators program are a revolutionary approach,” said Simon Butler, CEO of Abacus Lottery Everywhere, an early adopter of the new portal and program. “This could help enable solution providers to offer retailers significant benefits with very little effort and time to market, integrating into their existing platform.” 

Leading retailers choose CLOUD4RETAIL 

Worldwide, GK Software customers’ annual total revenue is $520 billion. We work with 24% of the global top 50 brands.  

Our position as a top worldwide POS provider, support for all retail formats, help driving global growth for retailers and easy integration through Omnibasket are just four reasons customers select CLOUD4RETAIL. But the reality is there are many reasons to work with GK Software.
