Here at SAP we continue to invest in new innovations for the retail industry and we are seeing these innovations now being launched in to the market. If you had the chance to visit NRF – The Big Show in New York this year, you may have seen some of these new innovations including applications around On-Shelf Availability, Retail Store Operations, Consumer Mobile Loyalty and Mobile Payment to name just a few.
While at NRF, you may have also noticed that SAP has a new point-of-sale solution that we are introducing to the U.S. market. SAP Point-of-Sale by GK is a Java Enterprise Edition (J EE) architected solution that provides comprehensive business logic, centralized deployment options with expanded capabilities to support retailer’s international requirements. Much like SAP POS, the solution is very configurable and can support a wide range of retail environments including Grocery, Big Box, Discounters, Apparel, Soft/Hard Goods, Electronics and more. SAP POS by GK has integrated with a number of back end systems but the solution also includes integration with SAP solutions and has been proven in a number of implementations.
The SAP POS solution is a very robust product that fulfills the requirements of selected retail segments quite well and therefore will continue to be promoted in select markets. SAP POS by GK has a very advance technology foundation that fits well in some of the segments and markets SAP POS has not traditionally addressed.
If you have any questions or would like to see a demo of the new SAP POS by GK solution or any other retail offerings from SAP, please contact your Account Executive.
