Diebold Nixdorf to showcase solutions for the future of shopping at EuroCIS

Storevolution™ program introduces new technologies throughout the consumer journey

DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY, 2018-Feb-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — At EuroCIS, the leading trade fair for retail technology, Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD) – the world leader in driving connected commerce – will present state-of-the-art technologies that enable intuitive journeys for shoppers across all channels and optimize the in-store experience. As part of its Storevolution™ consumer-centric approach, the company will showcase solutions for the future of shopping from February 27 to March 1 at Stand C26 in Hall 9.

Today’s retailers must be able to implement new touchpoints and technological applications quickly. This is where Diebold Nixdorf’s Storevolution™ program comes in: Customer centricity, store digitalization and high connectivity form the cornerstones of future-oriented retailing. A store-as-a-service offer that ensures technologies from various providers are supplied quickly and operated reliably can secure a retailer’s long-term success. For this reason, Diebold Nixdorf will place its focus at EuroCIS on innovations that cover all the processes along the customer journey.

    • In terms of implementing new customer journeys: “Scan & Go” is an option enabling consumers to use a mobile scanner to scan their goods themselves and pay for them at a self-service terminal when they leave the store. The advantage: All scanned items can conveniently be placed directly in a bag while shopping. Diebold Nixdorf supports this form of self-scanning with its new software solution Vynamic™ Mobile Shopper as well as with mobile hand-held scanners available in the stores. For consumers who want to use their own smartphone as a scanner, Diebold Nixdorf offers the Vynamic Mobile Shopper app, which enables customers to use their smartphones to scan items themselves. With “Pick, Pack & Pay,” Diebold Nixdorf introduces a consumer journey that makes it possible to quickly register items while not having to scan them. The use of RFID tags on the product or NFC tags that have been integrated into the shelf or electronic shelf labels allows the data of each item in the whole shopping basket to be digitally registered and forwarded to a payment station. At the station, customers then pay electronically or with cash, at which point they are given a receipt imprinted with a barcode that enables them to open an exit gate to depart the store.
    • The new, cloud-based software-as-a-service solution Vynamic Engage lays the foundation for cross-channel promotions and real-time campaigns that improve the shopping experience at every touchpoint. By capturing, combining and analyzing customer data, Vynamic Engage generates comprehensive customer profiles, enables retailers to personally address customers on the basis of earlier shopping patterns, promotes customer loyalty and ultimately creates higher revenues.
    • Diebold Nixdorf is also showcasing its proven BEETLE POS portfolio, including the BEETLE /iSCAN eXpress Hybrid – a checkout solution the customer or the cashier can operate. An additional monitor and a customer-facing scanner make it easy to switch between staff-operated and self-service mode depending on customer traffic, the number of items in the shopping basket and the availability of cashiers. Additionally, the BEETLE /iSCAN EASY SCO allows customers to scan items and pay for them either electronically or with cash. New features include the integrated recycling modules for coins and banknotes that automate cash handling. Together with a note recycler located in the store’s cash office, these modules lay the foundation for automated banknote processing.  Diebold Nixdorf is also showcasing two new all-in-one BEETLE /iPOS systems and has extended its portfolio to include a new payment solution based on a 6″ tablet that can be used anywhere in the store.
    • For its new generation of reverse vending systems, Diebold Nixdorf offers its customers CONCENTRATE (CONtrol CENter of TRAnsaction iTEms) – a modern fleet-management tool that condenses a variety of operational data into meaningful graphics and statistics. This enables store managers to monitor the status and performance of all installed systems through a Web interface both from their office and on the go. “In the digital age, consumers expect a personalized, networked and convenient shopping experience,” says Mark Brewer, senior vice president and managing director, Global Retail at Diebold Nixdorf. “Diebold Nixdorf’s software suite, extensive automation solutions, and services geared specifically to retail processes, help retail companies create better, sustainable customer experiences.”

Wincor Nixdorf to demonstrate in-store mobility solutions at EuroCIS

Wincor Nixdorf at EuroCIS 2016

Paderborn, GERMANY, 2016-Feb-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Mobile devices are greatly changing consumer habits. Against this backdrop, retail companies need concepts for offering their customers special shopping experiences in the form of personalized mobile services. Using the TP Application Suite software platform and its individual modules, Wincor Nixdorf will demonstrate at EuroCIS how to efficiently operate mobile touch points and how retailers can support their customers during the purchasing process, excite them with innovative services and maintain their loyalty to their company.

A study* commissioned by Wincor Nixdorf and carried out by the international market research company IDC Retail Insights shows how mobile technologies are changing consumers’ shopping behavior and, as a result, influencing the range of services offered by the retail industry. Already, 72 percent of European customers use their smart phone or tablet to look up additional product information. Nearly one in three customers also expect sales staff at the point of sale (POS) will have mobile devices available to provide more details and demonstrate product features. The same number of consumers also expect sales staff to be able to reserve unavailable products for pick-up at another store as part of their customer service. From the results of the survey, IDC concludes that “mobile services are on the way to becoming an equally important criterion for deciding where to shop as product range, brands and prices..

“Retail companies should quickly define and implement their individual mobile strategy for stores,” says Sabine Grün, Head of Industry Marketing Retail at Wincor Nixdorf. The emphasis here is on “individual.” The basis for every promising mobile concept draws from “first analyzing the cross-channel shopping behavior, gaining a detailed understanding of this customer journey and developing specific mobile services for the company’s own target group,” Grün explains. Customers appreciate flexible delivery and pick-up services, with employees having real-time mobile access to stock levels and orders. Customers save time because they can scan their purchases themselves, for instance with their smart phone, and simply pay at a self-service checkout with either cash or a card. Customers receive personalized smart phone messages with special offers that precisely match their shopping basket, their needs or their current location in the store. These are just a few examples of mobile services. Every retail company must assess how relevant such services are for its own target group and which services in particular contribute to the shopping experience.

In view of its holistic approach to solutions and extensive experience in international retailing, Wincor Nixdorf sees itself as a consulting partner for retailers that has the ability to accompany and support such decision-making processes. In its study, the market research company IDC also recommends that retailers define their mobile strategy in cooperation with an IT partner “who is not only able to implement mobile applications but is also well versed with sales concepts and customer behaviors and has a deep understanding of the processes in the retail sector.”

As a special highlight, Wincor Nixdorf will demonstrate to visitors at EuroCIS 2016 the opportunities new mobile applications offer to brick-and-mortar retail companies using a model store environment. Wincor Nixdorf’s tried-and-tested software platform, the TP Application Suite, is the basis for such processes. The new version TP.net 6.0, with its individual application solutions, provides numerous functions for mobile devices with iOS and Android operating systems. “With TP.net 6.0, we have managed to map many functions, in particular omnichannel functions, and make them available for mobile use,” says Lars Wiesner, Head of Product Line Retail Software at Wincor Nixdorf. For example:

Mobile merchandise management. The software module TPOMM brings user-friendly merchandise management solutions to mobile devices. At the trade fair, Wincor Nixdorf will demonstrate how sales staff can use their tablet to call up product specifications, check product availabilities and enter or change customer orders, for example. With this solution, retailers give their customers the flexibility to buy, order, reserve, pick up and return products in the way that works best for them.

Mobile scanning. Whether customers want to pop in for a quick purchase or leisurely stroll around the store, mobile self-scanning processes using a hand-held scanner provided by the retailer or with the customer’s own smart phone save time and offer new services. Customers can scan their goods directly at the shelf, view additional product information and the total sum of their purchases on the display at any time, and pay quickly and conveniently at a self-service terminal. These processes are controlled through the TPiSHOP software.

Mobile marketing. Addressing customers directly and personally in the store with messages on their smart phone containing special offers that have been specifically selected on the basis of insights from “historical” business relations with the customer: This is an example of the kind of personalized marketing applications Wincor Nixdorf provides with its latest version of TP.net. Special tools for real-time analysis and proactive planning make the campaigns particularly effective and contribute to long-term customer loyalty. “Retail companies benefit from an informative 360-degree view of the customer relationship and can, as a result, gear their offers specifically to the requirements of the customers,” Wiesner says . To implement direct customer communication using beacon technology, Wincor Nixdorf cooperates with Zebra Technologies, a company that provides the WiFi and beacon infrastructure required for such applications.

With BEETLE/moPOS, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase a tablet POS solution at EuroCIS 2016 that can be used as a stationary and mobile point of sale. All the necessary POS functions, information on products and payment by card are thus offered in mobile form wherever the consumer needs them. This solution can also be used by store staff to call up stock information or reorder goods anywhere on the shop floor.

Wincor Nixdorf will present its mobile solutions for retail stores at EuroCIS 2016 (Düsseldorf Exhibition Center, February 23 through 25) at Stand C 26 in Hall 9. What’s more, various projects in practical use and Wincor Nixdorf’s omnichannel solutions will be introduced as part of the presentation program that accompanies the trade fair. Claude Gerber, Head of IT at Calida AG, will talk about his experiences with the SAP Order Management solution Wincor Nixdorf has installed at the global clothing group, for example. A presentation by s.oliver about the omnichannel concepts the international fashion group has pursued together with Wincor Nixdorf is also planned. In addition, Sabine Grün, Head of Retail Industry Marketing at Wincor Nixdorf, will give a brief presentation titled “Explore the store with mobile solutions.”

Preparations for EuroShop 2017 have already started

  • 7 Experience Dimensions replace the 4 former segments
  • New segmentation of EuroShop’s 16 halls
  • Registration period for EuroShop 2017 now underway 

Düsseldorf, Germany, 2015-9-24 — /EPR Retail News/ — EuroShop 2014 in Düsseldorf was a success across the board. All records were broken: 109,496 visitors from some 100 countries travelled to the Rhine to gather information on all facets, innovations and trends in the global retail world from the 2,229 exhibitors attending the event from 56 nations. All this provided impressive proof of one thing: in retail there is just no avoiding EuroShop. However, when one trade fair ends the next one begins – which is why preparations are already in full swing for the next EuroShop from 5 to 9 March 2017. The starting signal for EuroShop 2017 is given: the acquisition largest capital goods trade fair for retail and its partners has already started.

Four turns into Seven

For many years now EuroShop has been very successful with its subdivision into the four areas EuroConcept, EuroSales, EuroExpo and EuroCIS. However,a concept proving successful in the past will not necessarily succeed in the future. Anticipation has always been one of the key prerequisites for EuroShop’s ongoing success. And the dynamic further developments in retail are now also seeing the leading international trade fair EuroShop break new ground – with forward-looking, consistent changes. In concrete terms this means 2017 will see the 4-segment structure of the past being replaced with a new system for the future. The new segmentation features seven Experience Dimensions: POP Marketing (Halls 1 + 3), Expo & Event Marketing (Halls 4 + 5), Retail Technology (Halls 6 + 7a), Lighting (Halls 9 + 10), Visual Merchandising (Hall 11), Shop Fitting & Store Design (Halls 12-14) and Food Tech & Energy Management (Halls 15-17).

The new layout guarantees an even more visitor-oriented array of ranges, on the one hand, and provides scope for synergies in various dimensions, on the other, because borders between the ranges will increasingly blur in the long run, as has been the case with display mannequins and high-end shop fitting with store design, for example. This means EuroShop 2017 will provide a more flexible framework as well as plenty of scope for presenting future-oriented developments and innovative products for global retail.

Wincor Nixdorf will present technologies and services to automate retailers POS and back-office processes at EuroCIS

Paderborn, Germany, 2015-2-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — At EuroCIS, Wincor Nixdorf will present technologies and services with which retailers can automate their POS and back-office processes to provide an attractive shopping experience for customers and better support for staff. The solutions can help increase sales as well as create opportunities for up- and cross-selling.

The expert for IT solutions for retail and banking will highlight key trends and challenges in retail at the trade show:
•Consumers are extremely well-informed about products and offerings thanks to the Internet. They also expect to have consistent information at their fingertips when shopping at a store.
•Consumers want different checkout options for different shopping
situations – from traditional checkouts and automated checkout solutions to mobile self-scanning.
•Retailers, especially in the lifestyle & fashion segment, are increasingly seeking elegant and mobile solutions that accentuate their brand image and help them connect with their customers.

To address these trends, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase a number of new or enhanced IT solutions:
The new BEETLE /moPOS offers the necessary power and functionality of a traditional POS terminal and the mobility to serve consumers anywhere. The tablet (8.3″ and 10.1″) is based on Intel’s latest processor technology and runs a Microsoft Windows 8.1 or an Android 4.4 operating system. Retailers can thus use their current Windows-based POS and merchandise management applications, as well as any new app-based suite. “The checkout process rarely provides up-selling opportunities because all of the customer’s purchasing decisions have already been made. However, if employees can offer a comprehensive service around the store, this would open up completely new possibilities, for example, to point out complementary products and current sales promotions or answer inventory questions and thereby increase the shopping cart size,” says Dr. Bernd Bueker, Vice President Retail DACH at Wincor Nixdorf. “The mobile POS technology we’re showcasing at EuroCIS opens up completely new opportunities for retailers in this context.”

Wincor Nixdorf’s BEETLE /iSCAN EASY Hybrid offers retailers maximum flexibility at the POS: The terminal can be converted from an attended to a self-service checkout quickly and easily. As a result, the checkout process can be sped up during peak times by switching over from self-service to attended mode – or returning to self-service mode once lines have shortened. In turn, consumers can ask for an employee to assist them at any time: the retailer takes control of the system again at the touch of a button. Because the 100% ADA II-compliant BEETLE /iSCAN EASY Hybrid is so easy to use, it takes only one store employee to monitor and manage several POS systems simultaneously. The quick and easy convertibility combined with ease of use enables retailers to keep lanes open at all times and optimize their assignment of personnel.

The topic of self-checkout systems is omnipresent in German retailing, but the processes and technologies have not yet been able to become established across the board in Germany – unlike in other European countries, such as most notably the UK, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, but also Spain, Scandinavia and even some markets in Eastern Europe like Poland or Hungary. Germany is lagging behind in terms of the number of installations. Yet the technology has reached such a level of market maturity that it can win broader acceptance among retailers and consumers in Germany, too. In order to promote its acceptance, Wincor Nixdorf is a partner in the “Self-Checkout Initiative” of the EHI Retail Institute. The initiative’s objective is to provide extensive information on self-scanning and complete self-checkout systems in order to optimize knowledge and retailers’ motivation for self-checkouts and increase their use in the industry. In March, the EHI Retail Institute intends to team up with the initiative’s partners to launch a website where all information and the results of studies can be found.

In the field of back-office automation, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase the latest version of its cash office-management solution at EuroCIS. It enables retailers to optimize cash handling and create a closed loop between the POS and the cash office. This automated front and cash office solution frees employees from routine functions, such as sorting and counting cash. It also gives retailers an overview of their current cash situation at all times. This solution is ideal for large retailers that handle significant amounts of cash per shift, such as supermarkets and hypermarkets.

Visitors can discover Wincor Nixdorf’s retail solutions at its trade fair stand (C26) in Hall 9 and at two presentations to be held at the fair:
