GK Software establishes partnership with Abacus for lottery

GK Software announces its Innovation Partnership with Abacus Solutions International Group, providing Lottery Everywhere. The Abacus Lottery Fusion Platform brings retailers, lottery, and vendors together - to ensure lottery can be played as seamlessly as possible across all channels of a retailers point of sale solution. It removes retailers' need to create cumbersome integrations to game providers on dedicated terminals, and it simplifies the entire deployment and engagement process.

The Abacus Lottery App is now available as an AppEnablement plug-in to CLOUD4RETAIL OmniPOS, allowing retailers to offer lottery sales at any checkout, increasing basket size and revenue.

CLOUD4RETAIL is GK Software's flexible, open commerce platform providing services for the operation of integrated unified commerce environments from in-store and online touchpoints through to mobile devices. The platform is enriched by innovative services such as AI-based dynamic pricing, personalization, fraud detection, and mobile applications. Now available with Azure, SAP Cloud, and IBM, the extensive expansion and customization options of the various CLOUD4RETAIL services can be used on a wide range of devices.

‘The partnership with GK and their innovative AppEnablement allows us to offer retailers the Abacus managed lottery services in a simple and effective way, cutting significant effort and time for retailers and allowing them to realize increased sales and a broader, more integrated way of selling lottery to their customers’ says Simon Butler, Abacus CEO. ‘We are glad to be able to offer our customers, leading retailers in over 65 countries, such a quick and simple way to introduce lottery, everywhere.

Increasing retailers revenue and pleasing their consumers’ says Orit Bar-Ad, GK Software Portfolio Director.
