GK Software Introduces Enterprise-Class POS Platform for Fuel Retailers

GK's robust, cloud-enabled OmniPOS platform brings full functionality of the most modern POS solutions to large regional and national fuel retail chains

Raleigh, NC – Sept. 25, 2019 – GK Software, the international market leader for store solutions, today announced the release of GK Drive, an integrated fuel solution for its OmniPOS platform. The all-in-one solution enables large convenience and grocery chains to simplify their fuel retailing ecosystem and create seamless checkout experiences for their customers. 

GK Drive delivers frictionless point of sale experiences in store and the forecourt. Deployed as a module of GK's OmniPOS platform, which Forrester has called the strongest point of service solution, GK Drive is perfect for retailers who are eager to transition their siloed and non-EMV compliant fuel infrastructure into a single, cloud-enabled platform.

"Until now, fuel retailers were forced to choose between fuel retailing applications that failed to provide a full feature set in the store or at the pump, or manage each operation independently with best of breed solutions for each application," said Michael Jaszczyk, CEO, GK software USA. "Finally, retailers have access to a single feature-rich POS and payments platform that delivers the functionality and flexibility to fuel a golden age of seamless convenience and service for thier customers. No matter what business or customer demands retailers need to fulfill - from electric charging to mobile food ordering or something we haven't imagined yet - GK Drive is ready to serve them."
