GK Software gains new orders from three well-known retailers

Successful licencing business in the first six months of the year / An outstanding start to sales of the new OmniPOS software solution

Schöneck, (PresseBox) - The second quarter of the year was very successful for GK Software AG. The company's ability to attract three new well-known customers played a major role in this process and provided evidence of the efficiency and variability of the new OmniPOS core product. The OmniPOS solution, which is a completely new development, was only officially launched at the leading trade fairs in New York and Düsseldorf at the beginning of the year. Backed by additional momentum from existing customers, it was therefore possible to achieve the target figures for the company's licencing business during the first half of the year. The new customers are active in the fashion, luxury goods and DIY sectors and together operate more than 1,600 stores in about 40 different countries. The Management Board is confident that further projects may be gained during the third and fourth quarters of the year. It is therefore standing by its forecast without any changes, as published in the statement on the first quarter.

The company is planning to publish its report for the first half of the year on 30 August 2016.
