Wincor Nixdorf and Wayne Fueling Systems to establish global strategic alliance

Paderborn, Germany, 2014-6-4 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wayne Fueling Systems, a global provider of fuel dispensing, automation, and control technologies for retail and commercial fuel stations, and Wincor Nixdorf, a leading supplier of IT solutions and equipment to retailers, retail banking and fuel stations, have announced today that they are establishing a global strategic alliance to provide industry leading forecourt control, point-of-sale, back-office, and payment solutions to fuel retailing customers around the world.

Under this new alliance, Wayne will provide its latest retail fuel station technology, including its Wayne Helix fuel dispenser and Wayne Fusion forecourt system. Wincor Nixdorf will supply its NAMOS software solution suite for end-to-end retail store operation and the BEETLE point-of-sale (POS) terminal family. The unified platform will deliver valuable functionality across a full range of retail fuel systems to benefit global, regional, national oil companies, branded wholesalers, high-volume retailers, fleet operations, and independent fuel station retailers.

The alliance combines each business’ extensive expertise and years of experience in the retail fueling sector. “As a result of this cooperation, new solutions will be launched in many regions to help create a consistent customer experience and bring more flexibility to the fueling industry by offering broader access to payment and loyalty systems,” explains Horst von Wels, Vice President and Head of Service Station International at Wincor Nixdorf.

“Wayne and Wincor Nixdorf have invested in developing and architecting products and technology on standard global platforms,” said Neil Thomas, CEO of Wayne Fueling Systems. “Because of this shared mindset, it was apparent that an alliance between the two companies would offer fuel retailers the best forecourt control and point-of-sales solution available in the industry today with unmatched scale and flexibility to meet the needs of customers around the world.”

“Retail fuel station operators benefit from faster end-to-end implementation of new functions, more innovative enhancements to existing solutions, and highly efficient project rollouts,” says Horst von Wels. “Equally important, they also benefit from a long-term secure investment in global platforms based on flexible technology that is designed to provide one base for a multitude of different business processes and retail store networks.”

Wayne and Wincor Nixdorf will use their extensive product portfolios to simplify IT requirements for the retail fuel industry and help give site owners the flexibility they need to capitalize on their technology investments. This solution, announced during the UNITI Expo, a new international trade fair held in Stuttgart, Germany, creates an industry-leading technology platform that centralizes onsite information technology and complements retail fueling operations.
