Christ Jeweler Opts for GK Software

Christ Juweliere und Uhrmacher seit 1863 GmbH, which is part of the Douglas-Group, has decided to install GK/Retail Software in its German stores, which number more than 200. As a result of this decision taken by the leading provider of jewelry and watches in Germany, GK Software AG has once again tapped into a new retail sector in the luxury field.

Christ Juweliere und Uhrmacher seit 1863 GmbH, which was founded almost 150 years ago and now has more than 200 stores, is the market leader for jewelry and watches in Germany. Following on the heels of Douglas and Thalia, Christ is now the third subsidiary company of the Douglas-Group to decide to use GK/Retail. The crucial issues leading to the company’s decision were not only the technological factors and the broad range of functions that GK/Retail provides, but also the positive experience that Parfümerie Douglas und Thalia have gained with GK Software AG. These two companies are already using the GK/Retail Software in more than 1,000 stores and many different countries. The decision by Christ is ample proof that GK Software AG’s existing customers are highly satisfied with the high quality provided both during the handling of the project and the service and maintenance during subsequent productive operations.


During the project, the standard GK/Retail Software will be extended to include special features need for this luxury business – e.g. printing documents certifying that items are genuine or customer management.

Jochen Schnell, Managing Director of Juwelier Christ, is expecting to obtain “a significant improvements in service opportunities in stores and major synergy effects within the Douglas-Group” by using GK/Retail.
