Innovative Solution from IBM with leading standard software GK/Retail

Next Generation Smart Self Checkout Solution

IBM presents the new IBM Self Checkout System 6 integrated with the GK/Retail standard software solution from the business partner GK SOFTWARE AG at EuroShop in Düsseldorf 2011. Both partners combined their key competence in the retail industry. IBM developed the hardware and software environment for the new Self Checkout System 6, and GK SOFTWARE AG provided the standard POS software GK/Retail. The IBM Self Checkout System 6 is completely integrated into the IT infrastructure at the store and eliminates the needs for isolated checkout solutions. This solution is one of the first partnership-based solutions worldwide that is fully integrated on the new IBM Self Checkout System 6.
For the first time in Europe, IBM presents the IBM Self Checkout System 6 running IBM Checkout Environment for Consumer-Service Software (CHEC) at EuroShop. The new solution has many advantages to offer like flexibility, modularity and integrated cash payment. The implementation of GK/Retail on the IBM Self Checkout System 6 integrates the comprehensive functionality of the leading POS solution on all checkout systems in the store.
IBM and GK Software AG have worked together in the retail industry for many years. Both partners developed a standardized and completely integrated self checkout solution that satisfies the requirements of the market. The hardware foundation for the solution is the new Self Checkout System 6 from IBM, which was presented for the first time at the NRF Conference in New York in January 2011. The open architecture of the IBM CHEC Software supports the integration of POS solutions from various vendors. GK SOFTWARE AG provided the POS software for this joint project: GK/Retail.
Based on the open architecture of the new Self Checkout System 6 every POS function of the GK/Retail POS software can be implemented. This makes functions of the internationally used POS solution such as promotions and loyalty now available at the self checkout. In addition, the standard functionality of GK/Retail to manage and monitor POS devices in the retail environment is now usable on the IBM Self Checkout System 6 and allows those devices to be centrally managed and monitored as well. The partnership between IBM and GK SOFTWARE AG prevents the need for isolated and expensive solutions, significantly reduces the complexity of the systems, and helps create homogenized IT environments.
