Parfümerie Douglas Handles Cash Functions with GK/Retail Mobile on the latest generation of iPod touch
Parfümerie Douglas is already testing the use of the new GK SOFTWARE AG solution GK/Retail Mobile POS on iPod Touch 4g in a productive proof of concept phase. Initially, sales persons will have access to the POS functions in the elegant and slick look & feel of iOS applications. They are not only able to encash items, but also search for them, for instance, change prices or charge gift certificate cards. Customer card functions with direct links to the central CRM system are also available on the mobile device. As a result of the new design of GK/Retail POS, the sales receipt can be issued during the sales interactions and the customer can check out at special pay points within the store. As the iPod Point of Sale system has the identical business logics as the GK/Retail standard software, other requirements can also be mapped on it - e.g. assigning the sale to a particular member of staff, issuing store reports or linking up outside software solutions.
Extended with an appropriate Hardware Kit GK/Retail Mobile is able to handle the complete payment process with debit and credit cards directly on iPods or iPhones.
A comprehensive operating and security concept takes into account the increased security requirements for mobile Point of Sales and they range from regular changes to passwords to a remote blockage of the devices in use.
