But you don’t have to take our word for it – keep reading to see what our customers and recent analyst reports have said about GK!

GK Is an Acclaimed POS Leader

Every year, IDC publishes a report known as “MarketScape” that compares active world-wide POS vendors in various industries including the Grocery and Food Retail sector. In the 2022 edition, GK was included as a leading vendor based on GK’s innovative solutions and services, and how well these tools are aligned to the needs of the grocers and food retailers.

IDC called out GK’s commitment to introducing “a steady stream of new features and functions in the past few years” to help retailers remain flexible and competitive.

The report featured four of GK’s core solutions, including:

  • GK CLOUD4RETAIL – GK’s comprehensive retail platform that supports all aspects of unified commerce, including POS.
  • GK AIR – GK’s cloud- and AI-based solution designed to help retailers achieve their personalization, dynamic pricing and fraud detection goals.
  • GK GO – GK’s fully-integrated scanless solution for attended and unattended retail stores.
  • GK OmniScale – GK’s platform-independent solution created to improve agility and integration for stores that use scales for dynamic pricing and inventory control.

GK’s Expertise Encompasses Retail Industries Worldwide

GK’s exceptional POS solutions are not restricted to grocery and food retailers. Globally, GK has achieved over 500,000 POS installations across the retail industry, representing over 65 countries. What’s more, 22% of the top 50 global retailers rely on GK solutions sold under the SAP brand.

In fact, RBR, a strategic research and consulting firm with three decades of experience in banking, retail automation, cards and payments, ranked GK as the number one provider for new retail POS installations in Germany and Eastern Europe in their 2021 Global POS Software report.

The report takes into account all new installations across the retail, hospitality and forecourt sectors. In doing so, RBR found that GK is also a top three provider for all new POS installations in these sectors worldwide during the period of the study.
