GK Software wins new orders in North and Central America

(PresseBox) (Schöneck, ) .

- Significant follow-up order in Canada
- First new customer in Mexico
GK Software has been able to continue its successful international expansion programme during this business year and gain two more projects. A leading Canadian retailer has opted for another product from the GK Software portfolio sold by SAP. As part of a major follow-up order, the mobile merchandise management software will be introduced in more than one thousand stores. A leading department store and boutique operator in Mexico has decided to purchase the POS solution and will equip more than 1,300 stationary and mobile tills with the new software. The project was gained through a local partner and it will handle the implementation work.

As a result, GK Software AG has already been able to gain thirteen new projects this year, four of them in North and Central America. The Management Board believes that this endorses its strategy of internationalization and it is continuing to stand by its forecast for the 2015 business year without making any changes.
