GK Software SE and METTLER TOLEDO have signed a partnership agreement aimed at aligning their international market-leading software and hardware solutions for the retail sector even more closely.
Their goal with the collaboration is to provide retailers around the world with a perfectly matched combination of scales hardware and software that offers consumers the best possible shopping experience. Within the scope of the technology partnership, GK will further optimize its OmniScale solution, based on the open platform GK CLOUD4RETAIL, for use on METTLER TOLEDO’s modern commercial scales.
OmniScale is based on the same software platform as GK’s other solutions and supports all types of scales used in retail – from counter scales, self-service and checkout scales to pre-packing systems. It utilizes exactly the same infrastructure as systems such as cash registers, mobile devices, or vending machines, thereby enabling retailers to run company-wide promotions and loyalty campaigns, be it in store, in retail catering, or at gas stations. Using OmniScale on METTLER TOLEDO’s hardware gives retailers the opportunity to implement innovative promotions on their scales, such as personalized recommendations or coupons, as well as allowing them to communicate with cash register systems or customers’ smartphones.
METTLER TOLEDO Retail scales are highly efficient, durable solutions with PC-based technology and standardized interface options. METTLER TOLEDO offers modular solutions for the fresh service counter, fresh produce departments, and the checkout area, complemented by a global service and support network to increase productivity and sales in food retail.
Under the agreed technology partnership, both companies will work to closely align their solutions and will give each other early notice of the deployment of new technologies and further developments.
