The report analyzed global coverage of point of sale applications for more
than 75 suppliers across six regions, and identified GK Software as the
second-most popular provider for new installations across all segments
globally. Additionally, GK Software ranks sixth globally for total POS
installations. The study evaluated the number of POS installations at
retailers with more than 1,000 POS devices from June 2018 through June 2019.

competitor across all sectors, claiming 30 percent of all new rollouts.
Counting total installations, GK Software is the definitive market leader in
Central and Eastern Europe and is second in Europe as a whole.

market-leading POS solutions (The Forrester Wave(TM): Point Of Service, Q3
2018 [1]) in new geographies, launching rollouts for large customers with
stores in the U.S., Mexico, India and the Asia-Pacific region.
