HRK Retail Company Profile

Our Story

Founded in 1966, HRK Retail has set itself to be a market leader in providing hospitality, retail and receipting software to the South African marketplace.

HRK has been involved with creating, installing and supporting stock control systems for the Retails Industry. We first began supplying point of sale solutions to the liquor industry, ever since the first liquor store was installed with cash registers linked to a PC in the mid 1980's.

During the early 2010's, we expanded our portfolio by collaborating with an American based company, FuturePos, to provide point of sale solutions to the Hospitality Industry. FuturePOS was founded in 1998. and has come a long way since its humble beginnings and can be seen regularly on SPIKE TV’s Bar Rescue™. You’ll also find Future POS software at some of the finest restaurants around the world.

Building on this heritage, today HRK Retail focuses its innovation prowess on addressing the unmet needs of retailers in South Africa. This year we have broadened our offerings and have successfully launced our new HRK Butchery and HRK Hardware software to further cement our position in the Retail Industry. The new software caters to the Meat Industry and the Home Centre and Hardware Store Industry, respectively. 

While our national headquarters is located in Johannesburg, we provide local service and support throughout South Africa.
