Once a little-known retailer tucked away in the dense forests of Ullared, Gekås now claims the nickname ‘Sweden’s Walmart’. With a net revenue of €450 million, over 4 million yearly customers and its own reality TV show, we’re proud to be a part of this extraordinary journey.

  • 133 million receipt lines per year, requires high efficiency and speed at the cash register.

  • Each hour of cash register downtime costs the company over €400 000 euro, requiring excellent reliability.
