SAP and GK Software re-certify Casio
The multinational companies SAP SE and GK Software AG confirm the compatibility of the Casio IT-G400 mobile computer with the "SAP Offline Mobile Store by GK" application.

After extensive testing, Casio Europe GmbH has now also received certification from SAP and GK Software for an additional mobile data capturing device: the CASIO IT-G400. GK Software AG, which was established in 1990, can count around 20% of the world's 50 largest retailers among its customers. Moreover, the international customer base includes a number of leading international commercial companies, such as Coop Switzerland, Galeria Kaufhof, Hornbach, Jysk Nordic, Lidl, Netto Marken-Discount, Migros, Parfümerie Douglas, Tchibo and the X5 Retail Group.The "SAP Offline Mobile Store by GK" solution has been developed by GK Software and is distributed worldwide by SAP.

The certification gives SAP users the certainty that their software has been officially tested by the market leader in the retail software field. The distinction reflects the high quality and international application possibilities of the solution.

The Casio IT-G400, a full-touch handheld with current Android operating system, opens up new fields of application in industry, trade, logistics and services. The mobile computer contains components that have already been proven to be top-class in handhelds used industrially. The mobile computer device is ideally suited to existing IT infrastructures. This allows a high level of planning security when it comes to investment in hardware and software.

The CASIO IT-G400 is a mobile computer well-suited to industrial applications because the five-inch full-touch display is virtually unbreakable and extremely scratch-resistant. The IP67 protection rating indicates that the device is well-protected against the ingress of dust and water, making it particularly well-suited for outdoor use in wind and inclement weather. In addition, the mobile computer is a lightweight 325 g and is robust, withstanding a drop onto concrete from 1.5 metres.

"Casio is proud that another device has been able to pass the strict tests set by GK Software and SAP with flying colours", explains Thomas Uppenkamp, Manager of Mobile Industrial Solutions at Casio Europe GmbH. The test confirms that the Casio IT-G400 can be seamlessly integrated into the SAP infrastructure. "Data is recorded and processed without any compatibility or formatting problems." The scarcity of data capturing device providers remaining in the retail market leads Uppenkamp to expect strong growth in this area.
