GK Software, the international market leader for store solutions, will yet again set trends for the future of retail at EuroCIS 2019 in Düsseldorf. Attendees will experience the possibilities of combining the world's most comprehensive retail platform, OmniPOS, with Artificial Intelligence, the unlimited use of mobile devices, and the latest technologies during live presentations at the GK booth C42 in Hall 10. There will be a special focus on the frictionless store, the promise that consumers can make their purchases without having to interact with the retailer’s IT systems or staff from the moment they enter the store through checkout - simply by using a smartphone.

OmniPOS, the award-winning platform for the handling of all store processes on the basis of stateof-the-art technologies, is at the heart of the GK Software solution suite. GK Software also makes OmniPOS completely available from the cloud as part of cloud4retail. The cloud-based platform is ready for the future and offers full functionality, adaptability, and opportunities to significantly reduce operating costs. Recently recognized by Forrester Research as the strongest current platform, its integrated processes have compelled roughly 50 major retailers worldwide, across all sales channels, to deploy it. Among these processes are support for all stationary and mobile POS variants, integrated solutions for scales, label & poster print, omnichannel pricing & promotions, clienteling and a comprehensive offer for mobile customer loyalty. 

GK Software will also present the Frictionless Store solution, based on the Mobile Consumer Assistant (MCA), for the first time at EuroCIS. It enables the entire range of shopping processes on the customer's smartphone, including self-scanning, AI-based recommendations and mobile payment. The cloud-based solution offers retailers the fast implementation of a more modern customer approach in the store based on the mobile platform from GK Software, which has already been successfully used hundreds of thousands of times.

With AIR (Artificial Intelligence for Retail) GK Software has developed the first dedicated retailoriented platform based on artificial intelligence for the optimization of retail processes. AIR enables retailers to realize many processes automatically - from dynamic pricing and personalization to fraud detection - based on machine learning.

The leading mobile merchandise management solution brings all merchandise management processes directly to the store using the latest technology - end-to-end, online and offline, on a wide variety of mobile devices and with direct connection to core systems.

GK Software will also present several new solutions based on the OmniPOS platform for the first time in Düsseldorf. This includes the hardware-independent OmniScale weighing software, which supports all types of scales - from operator scales to customer-operated scales to scales with integrated cash registers. Another first is OmniPOS Petrol. The modern forecourt solution ensures the seamless integration of the petrol station and convenience business into a unified Omnichannelcapable solution. 

With OmniPOS Hospitality, GK Software now empowers the integration of restaurants into an overall cross-channel strategy. The solution is designed to cover all restaurant types from fine dining to fast food, enabling modern customer loyalty integrations and omnichannel processes at the same time. 

In addition to the enhancements to its OmniPOS solution, GK Software will present new and innovative solutions that address emerging opportunities such as blockchain-based payment technologies and virtual reality stores at EuroCIS.
