Wincor Nixdorf to provide hardware, software and services
Paderborn, Germany, 2016-May-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — Following a test installation, which is due to begin in August 2016, Wincor Nixdorf will equip all 59 stores of Dutch supermarket chain Jan Linders with new POS systems starting early 2017. The partners signed a corresponding agreement in March this year.
Prior to signing, Jan Linders thoroughly investigated Wincor Nixdorf’s POS solution portfolio, for example by visiting German food retailer tegut, which belongs to the Swiss Migros Group and also relies on Wincor Nixdorf for its POS systems. This exchange of experiences as well as Wincor Nixdorf’s outstanding expertise and many installations, particularly in the Benelux countries, were the deciding factors for the order. “It was also extremely important to us that Wincor Nixdorf was able to offer a complete solution of hardware, software and services from a single source,” says Marcel Gommans, ICT Manager at Jan Linders.
Wincor Nixdorf will deliver and install the hardware for the supermarket chain’s approximately 350 checkouts, consisting of BEETLE/ M-III POS systems and TH 230 POS printers as well as touch displays and scanners. The BEETLE/ M-III is equipped with Intel’s fourth generation of core processors (Haswell technology). Through the processors’ performance, coupled with high-speed main memory modules, users can clearly feel just how powerful the overall system actually is. The systems will be controlled by TP.net, Wincor Nixdorf’s internationally proven store and POS software. “The application impresses on two fronts: its extensive feature richness as well as its modularity, which means that it can be easily adapted to individual requirements,” says Marcel Gommans. TPAdmin, a software module that can be used to manage the entire store network, will also be installed at Jan Linders. In addition, the TPAnalyze application will provide Jan Linders with simple, cost-efficient control over customer touchpoints, marketing campaigns and POS terminals. TPAnalyze thus gives decision-makers a solution-oriented view of the business performance in real time – as a basis for optimizing marketing strategies.
The agreement with Jan Linders also stipulates that Wincor Nixdorf will provide all services for an initial period of three years to ensure permanent availability of all POS systems.
