Netto Marken-Discount to Equip the Former PLUS Stores with GK/Retail
Once the PLUS retail outlets, which were formerly part of the Tengelmann Group, are taken over by the store network of Netto Marken-Discount AG & Co. KG Kommanditgesellschaft, part of the EDEKA Group, the store IT equipment will be standardized. Over 2,500 PLUS stores will be equipped with the same GK/Retail configuration that is already successfully deployed at the Netto retail outlets.
The switch to touch tills with GK/Retail will have been completed by the middle of next year. Also new to the former PLUS stores is the use of the mobile merchandise management suite, GK/Retail Mobile, and GK/Retail Workflow. One particular challenge was to allow the company to continue to operate its existing older Point-of-Sale (POS) hardware, which will be expanded with touch screens in future. The stores will also be upgraded with automatic empties machines from various manufacturers which will be integrated into the new store infrastructure.
GK SOFTWARE AG has been providing store automation solutions to Netto since 2003. Netto was the first food retail store chain in Germany to introduce a chain-wide touch POS solution at the point of sale. The GK/Retail suite and store infrastructure is managed centrally with GK/Retail Enterprise Storemanager. Netto also uses the mobile merchandise management software, GK/Retail Mobile. The software, which can operate both on-line and off-line, enables merchandise management business processes at stores to be handled efficiently anywhere in the building. Netto also operates GK/Retail Workflow, the workflow software that allows the enterprise to distribute news and information to all its stores in real time.
