Developers can also use simple JavaScript to plug-in web apps such as clienteling, time and attendance, and rich item content (e.g. an AR makeup "try me on" app) to the POS, assistants‘ mobile POS, or a kiosk.

The portal provides swagger documentation, postman collections, and samples for the most relevant services and App-Enablement, with simple registration access to a sandbox environment. These are publicly available and can be found at www.omnibasket.com.

The launch is accompanied by an Innovator Partners Programme, which allows a swift transition from discovery to commercial availability, helping partners to control their own success and all parties to benefit from the outcomes.

Simon Butler, CEO of Abacus Lottery Everywhere, an early adopter of the new portal and programme says: "The GK Software Omnibasket developer portal and Innovators programme are a revolutionary approach. This could help innovate solution providers offering retailers significant benefits with very little effort and time to market integrating into their existing platform. This is a really exciting and innovative opportunity for us, allowing retailers to sell lottery games through their existing POS platforms without having to install dedicated lottery terminals. This integrated approach could enable every retail touch point to sell lottery so helping to increase the retailer basket size and offering greater consumer convenience."
