GK presents scanless format GK GO at Paris Retail Week

  • GK introduces latest version of SaaS platform GK CLOUD4RETAIL and its extensions
  • Pop-up container shows new grab-and-go store concept GK GO
  • GK with GK GO is finalist at Paris Retail Awards
  • GK at the Paris Retail Week in pavilion 4, stand E159

GK will be at Paris Retail Week, 20-22 September 2022, showcasing its full-service platform GK CLOUD4Retail and its flexible extensions for the retail of the future, as well as its first scanless store GK GO. Visitors to the trade fair can experience GK's grab-and-go store concept live in a pop-up container at the GK stand in Pavilion 4, Stand E 159 on the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles campus. The GK GO Store was first presented to the industry at this year's EuroCIS in Düsseldorf and was a crowd magnet there. GK GO is nominated as a finalist for the Paris Retail Awards in the 'Agile Customer Journey' category.

GK GO is a solution developed by GK to support real-time item registration without scanning. This enables retail companies to give their customers full shopping basket transparency at any time during the shopping process via their smartphones. Any items removed or returned are recorded using Aware shelves from Israeli smart weighing technology specialist Shekel and 3D environment detection via LiDAR sensors from Hitachi, without shoppers having to scan items or pay at a checkout.

The GK GO store uses the GK CLOUD4RETAIL software platform, which enables flexible customer journeys in stores of all sizes and supports food, convenience and fashion retailers as well as petrol station operators and restaurant owners with an end-to-end full-service solution. GK's market-leading cloud platform is the basis for flexibly integrating features and creating a cutting-edge shopping experience without limitations in retail – if desired via remote updates to the instore systems.

With GK SPOT and GK AIR, GK has further cloud-based solutions for the experts attending Paris Retail Week: the in-house developed big data solution GK SPOT makes retail data usable in real time. GK AIR is designed as a platform for retail companies using artificial intelligence to optimise sales and turnover strategies in the retail sector.

Paris Retail Week takes place in an important growth market for GK, which opened its first French subsidiary in Paris in September 2021. The software house for in-store and omnichannel solutions is already present in thousands of retail outlets throughout France, such as those of Lidl and Aldi Nord. In addition, one of France’s largest retailers is currently preparing to deploy GK solutions.
