Wincor Nixdorf expands its cash management capacities in the Netherlands

Paderborn, Germany, 2015-10-8 — /EPR Retail News/ — By acquiring Brink’s CiT operations in the Netherlands, Wincor Nixdorf is expanding its cash management capacities in the Netherlands. The primary objective of the takeover is to provide one-stop cash management and cash logistics services to leading Dutch banks that have signed long-term agreements for them. Wincor Nixdorf is acquiring the business, infrastructure and employees of Brink’s Netherlands and will integrate them with the business of SecurCash, its subsidiary specialized in cash management and cash logistics. In the last fiscal year, both companies together already generated a business volume of €70 million. Once the acquisition is complete and activities are combined, Wincor Nixdorf will provide around 40 percent of cash management and logistics services in the Netherlands.

The acquisition will produce the necessary capacity expansion for the provision of cash handling services to four major banks. In addition, it will bring together two companies that perfectly complement each other. As a result of the acquisition, the new SecurCash will also profit from synergies from the business with banks and retail companies. These opportunities will be created by the broad customer base that Brink’s Netherlands has among Dutch retailers. After the acquisition has been completed, the company will cover the entire cash logistics chain in the cash centers located throughout the Netherlands and have more than 600 employees.

One of Wincor Nixdorf’s strategic goals is to expand its business with ambitious and managed services. “As a partner of banks and retailers, our cash handling services will be seamlessly linked to our IT services to operate systems and IT infrastructures and add profitable services to our value chain end-to-end,” said Eckard Heidloff, the President and CEO of Wincor Nixdorf AG. Bank and retail customers will profit from process optimization of a provider of hardware, software and services along the entire cash logistics chain, Heidloff said.

The Dutch anti-trust authority (Autoriteit Consument en Markt – ACM) approved the acquisition on September 15, 2015. Brink’s Netherlands was spun off by its American parent company in 2014 and has operated since then as an independent company.

SecurCash, a subsidiary of Wincor Nixdorf, has been providing cash handling services in the Dutch market since 2006. The company is based in Rotterdam.

Wincor Nixdorf to present updates to its Mobile and Kiosk POS, Cash Management and Software at the NRF Conference & Expo in New York

New hardware and software helps retailers streamline activities and deliver a seamless shopping experience to consumers

Paderborn, Germany, 2015-1-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wincor Nixdorf, a global leader in advanced retail and banking IT solutions, today announced updates to four of its products that are used by retailers to automate their point of sale, streamline back office activities, and provide consumers with a seamless omnichannel shopping experience. These hardware and software enhancements are designed to help retailers improve conversion rates and promote cross-selling opportunities that increase the basket size for each order.

The following products will be on display this week in booth # 4217 at the NRF Conference & Expo:

•Mobile POS Updates: Wincor Nixdorf’s new BEETLE/moPOS combines the functionality of a traditional POS terminal with mobility required to serve customers anywhere and at any time. Now available in 8.3” or 10.1” tablets, these POS solutions feature Intel’s latest processor technology; they run Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 or Android 4.4 operating systems; and they enable retailers to run their current Windows-based POS and Merchant Management applications, while also making it easier to implement new App-based solution suites. Hand held POS technology helps employees interact with customers throughout the store, where they can answer questions, discuss inventory status, and present sales promotions before the consumers’ purchasing decisions have been made.

•Kiosk POS Updates: Wincor Nixdorf’s new W1000 Interactive Kiosk has been redesigned for retailers in the hospitality segment. The kiosk’s innovative design has been proven to increase revenue with younger consumers, who feel more comfortable ordering food and purchasing suggested add-ons when they’re offered in a non-personal, automated fashion. At NRF, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase the new design and discuss how the combination of German engineering and personalized hardware design plays a key role in retailer success.

•Cash Management Solution Updates: For automating activities on the back end, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase the latest version of its Cash Management Office Solution, which enables retailers to create a closed loop between all points of sale and the cash office. This automated solution frees employees from routine functions such as sorting and counting cash, and it also provides a real-time awareness of the retailer’s cash situation. The Cash Management Solution is ideal for larger retailers with significant cash takings per shift, such as supermarkets and hypermarkets.

•Software Updates: At NRF, Wincor Nixdorf will discuss the latest version of it software, which forms the cornerstone of a true omnichannel platform. The latest version 5.5 of the software provides retailers with seamless connectivity for applications across each of their retail channels. It enables retailers to combine rules-based pricing promotions with customer loyalty programs. It features backend intelligence capabilities for the management of store networks. The latest version of the software suite features a new customer relationship management module which provides real-time interaction with consumers on all channels, including social media touch-points. And on the backend, 5.5 seamlessly organizes cross-channel order processing, item availability checks, and the handling of cash and non-cash payments on any channel. 5.5 is part of Wincor Nixdorf’s comprehensive, modular TP Application Suite, which addresses the entire range of sales-related processes required by large, international retailers. The TP Application Suite is a set of integrated software applications installed in over 70 countries and on more than 200,000 point of sales systems. Wincor Nixdorf ensures support for its solutions around the world through its closely-meshed delivery and service network.
