Cloud Based POS
PR Newswire | October 03, 2023
NewStore, a modular, mobile-first omnichannel cloud platform for retail brands worldwide, today announced AllSaints will roll out its mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) in more than 200 stores globally. This is an extension of the partnership as the British fashion retailer previously selected NewStore to replace its homegrown direct-to-consumer mobile app. These initiatives demonstrate AllSaints' commitment to its digital transformation strategy and its dedication to offering customers a premium, unified, and seamless shopping experience across all channels.
Since the company was founded in 1994, AllSaints has prided itself on creating collections that are designed to make people look and feel good. Each piece is crafted with its own unique shape, style, and attention to detail. With NewStore, AllSaints will now offer personalized, high-touch shopping experiences that complement the exceptional quality of its products, regardless of when, where, or how consumers choose to interact with the brand.
"Our goal has always been to create customer journeys that are effortless and contemporary. To do this, we needed a modular yet comprehensive omnichannel platform that could empower us to innovate and adapt," said James Reid, Chief Innovation Officer, AllSaints. "We originally selected NewStore to build our consumer app, but that was just the beginning. By expanding our partnership, we are elevating the overall customer experience and future-proofing our technology strategy at the same time."
The NewStore mPOS will unlock new benefits like enhanced associate mobility, streamlining the checkout process, and allowing AllSaints stylists to interact with customers anywhere on the store floor, using only an iPhone or iPad. Also, by seamlessly integrating with the other components of AllSaints' retail tech stack, NewStore will be able to access all customer, order, and inventory data, enabling a number of unified commerce flows.
At the same time, the AllSaints App, which is powered by NewStore and offered as part of its omnichannel-as-a-service offering, gives customers a premium mobile shopping experience via its beautiful, interactive, and intuitive UX. After going live in March 2023, the app has been downloaded more than 75,000 times, with more than 8,000 reviews and an average app rating of 4.9 stars. Also, the app now accounts for a significant proportion of the brand's total ecommerce revenue, and has more than doubled the performance of the original AllSaints app. Most importantly, because NewStore Consumer Apps seamlessly integrate with the other components of the platform, AllSaints can offer more personalized and efficient interactions, regardless of channel, leading to increased loyalty and sales.
"There is no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to executing an omnichannel strategy, and the composable architecture of our platform offers enterprise brands like AllSaints the agility and adaptability required to meet their digital transformation goals," said Stephan Schambach, Founder and CEO, NewStore. "AllSaints' decision to adopt both our mobile POS and consumer app demonstrates their commitment to a holistic omnichannel strategy. By working seamlessly together, these solutions will allow the brand to offer a truly unified shopping experience across every touchpoint."

Built with MACH principles, NewStore allows brands to easily deliver amazing shopping experiences that store associates and consumers love. Its mobile-first, modular cloud platform includes POS, order management, clienteling, inventory, and native consumer apps.

GK today announced its latest solution, GK Engage, a modern, comprehensive and AI-powered loyalty program for every omnichannel retail touch point. This solution empowers retailers to create highly contextualized and personalized outreach including messaging, discounts and rewards that improve customer lifetime value and enrich a retailer’s competitive differentiation. GK Engage was announced at GK’s first-ever Retail Innovation Summit for the Americas, which is taking place Sept. 25-26 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Attendees can view GK Engage, alongside other GK solutions, at the newly unveiled GK Customer Experience Center.
GK is a world leader in point-of-sale (POS) technology and, as a result, its product team has talked with retailers who wanted more out of their loyalty systems. To fill this gap, GK developed GK Engage, a modern take on loyalty. The solution draws inspiration from two successful GK solutions, MCA, GK’s mobile loyalty program, and T+ Loyalty. These predecessor technologies have serviced more than one billion transactions per year for over six million registered users. Now, GK Engage customers will reap these benefits at scale using one comprehensive platform that works across a diverse range of online and in-store retail touch points.
GK Engage provides retailers with real-time, AI-driven, personalized loyalty offers that surprise and delight customers. The complete solution creates loyalty tiers that automatically track all customer interactions and generate relevant campaigns to safeguard long-term retailer relationships and customer lifetime value. GK Engage can be integrated with merchandise master data and customer data to ensure all recommendations, promotions, coupons and more are beneficial to the individual customer, as well as the retailer’s current inventory availability and financial goals.
What’s more, GK Engage is already integrated into GK’s OmniPOS solution across all touch points including traditional POS, self-checkout kiosks, mobile, and frictionless store technology like GK GO.
“GK Engage was created for any retailer, regardless of where they are in their loyalty journey,” said Michael Jaszczyk, chief digital transformation officer, GK and CEO, GK Americas. “The solution is extremely flexible. For some retailers, GK Engage will serve as a complete solution, while others may integrate the solution into a CRM or an existing customer offer system. I look forward to presenting GK Engage alongside our other innovative solutions at the now unveiled GK Customer Experience Center.”
Today and tomorrow, GK customers and partners from across the U.S., Latin America and Canada are gathering at GK’s US headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina to take part in the 2023 GK Retail Innovation Summit. In addition to hearing from renowned retail experts like Greg Buzek, founder and president, IHL Group, attendees can visit GK’s new Customer Experience Center.
The center showcases GK technology and allows viewers to envision a modern, efficient and exceptional shopper experience across various key touch points including the point-of-sale, the fuel pump and the e-commerce site. At the Customer Experience Center, prospective retail customers can hear from solution experts who will help them to design the best solution deployment for their end-customers. The technology featured in the center includes GK Engage, GK OmniPOS, self check-out, GK Drive, GK GO, GK AIR (artificial intelligence for retail) and fraud prevention solutions from Fujitsu, which invested in GK as a strategic investor earlier this year.
GK breaks down the barriers to unified commerce with its open CLOUD4RETAIL platform and a broad portfolio based on it, like OmniPOS for point of sale, mobile POS, mobile customer engagement and a full range of store/back-office solutions. The company is a recognized leader in omnichannel retail, offering a single, global software platform for all retail formats and touch points. Ten of the Top 50 retailers worldwide rely on GK, and GK is the fastest growing global POS provider in new installations over the last three years. For more information, visit www.gk-software.com.
