The Retail Domain Task Force (RDTF) is a community dedicated to helping retailers and solution providers identify, adopt and integrate current and emerging information technology. The RDTF was originally founded in 1991 as a share group for retail CIOs, and then incorporated in 1993 as the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS). ARTS was subsequently acquired by the National Retail Federation (NRF) in 1998; the Object Management Group® (OMG®) and NRF entered into a long-term agreement to manage and develop the retail standards in 2017.
UnifiedPOS, an architectural specification for application interfaces to point-of-service devices used in a retail environment is maintained by the OMG RDTFand adopted globally by retailers and solution providers. It defines the structure of application interfaces to retail devices such as scanners, printers and scales, and describes the range of functionality in these devices that would typically be needed in a range of POS software solutions, whether physically attached or accessed over networks using web services.
The OMG RDTF booth is sponsored by GS1 US.
