GK Software secures first project in South Africa

For one of its business lines a leading South-African retail company has selected SAP Point-of-Sale by GK solutions, which have been developed by GK Software to run on SAP, including the Mobile POS Option, SAP Offline Mobile Store, SAP Store Device Control and SAP Label & Poster Print.

  • Leading South-African retailer chooses SAP store solutions by GK Software AG
  • Roll-out in more than 150 hypermarkets across more than 10 countries

The solutions will be rolled out at the retailer's operations in more than 10 countries in southern Africa on well over 7,000 stationary and mobile devices in total. The project comprises the SAP Offline Mobile Store omnichannel-compatible point-of-sale solution, Mobile POS (a mobile ERP management solution), the automatic SAP Label & Poster Print and the SAP Store Device Control integration platform. As a result, essential processes within the retailer's very large stores will in future be running on SAP Store Solutions by GK.

GK Software will work locally with its own team to adapt the solutions to the customer's specific requirements. Virtually simultaneously, another customer in South Africa, this time from the public sector, has also chosen SAP Point-of-Sale by GK. That smaller project will be handled by a GK Software partner in South Africa who has already successfully completed the relevant stages of training in the GK Academy and is hence fully certified.
