EHI Retail Institute award
Paderborn, Germany, 2015-8-6— /EPR Retail News/ — The “Top Supplier Retail” award was conferred this year by the EHI Retail Institute in Cologne for the first time.
This new award honors the entire range of excellent services and solutions that an IT partner makes available to retail businesses. Wincor Nixdorf was named a “Top Supplier Retail” in this very first year of the award, and EHI Managing Director Michael Gerling presented Wincor Nixdorf with the certificate recently at the company’s headquarters in Paderborn.
Thomas Fell, who is a member of the Executive Board of Wincor Nixdorf and is responsible for its worldwide IT business with retail companies, noted: “We are very pleased to receive this award and view it as a confirmation of our work to date. At the same time, it represents a challenge to continue providing retail businesses around the world with innovative, intelligent, useful solutions for streamlining business processes and optimizing customer service concepts.”
The “Top Supplier Retail” award distinguishes those IT service providers who have excelled at the “retail technology awards europe”.
These awards have been made by the EHI for eight years now for outstanding IT projects in the retail sector. In February 2015, two projects were honored for which Wincor Nixdorf is the IT partner of the prizewinning retail company. The prize for “Best Multichannel Solution” went to the French fashion retailer Kiabi. As Kiabi’s IT partner in a comprehensive multichannel project, Wincor Nixdorf installed a modern store software at approximately 3,200 Kiabi checkout stations that integrates the online and offline worlds. The prize in the “Best Enterprise Solution” category went to Lunar GmbH, the IT subsidiary of Edeka, Germany’s largest food retailer. Wincor Nixdorf developed a checkout simulation pool for Lunar that analyzes checkout processes in detail on the basis of genuine POS data.
