GK Named a Leader in 2022 IDC MarketScape Grocery and Food Store POS Assessment

GK today announced that it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Point-of-Sale Vendors in Grocery and Food Store Retail 2022 Vendor Assessment (Doc #US46743220, May 2022). 

The IDC MarketScape report evaluates enterprise POS solution providers in the global grocery/food store segment. A key evaluation is how IT buyers perceive the benefits of the POS software in meeting the unique and ever-changing needs of grocery stores. As well, the report evaluates providers' strategy and commitment to enabling retailers' ongoing omnichannel success.

GK’s CLOUD4RETAIL, an enterprise-class, unified commerce platform, is highlighted in the report. The comprehensive platform is notable for its range of capabilities, supporting services from mobile customer loyalty to mobile store merchandise management. GK is also continually offering new solutions in its roadmap, including its scanless format, GK GO, which helps shoppers check in, take items, and walk out or pay on their phones. It also developed GK SPOT, a completely new cloud-based big data service that tracks all customer interactions across sales channels. 

“The grocery industry is evolving rapidly as new trends emerge and customers demand personalized services,” said Michael Jaszczyk, CEO, GK Americas. “As a result, we are proud to be recognized by the IDC MarketScape for our omnichannel grocery solutions and the innovations we’ve made to help grocers create seamless, flexible end-to-end shopping experiences. From personalization to dynamic pricing to scanless checkout, our mission is to enable retailers to deliver unified and enhanced services. That’s why I’m excited for GK to be positioned as a Leader in this category.”
