Scientific Games and Wincor Nixdorf win tender
Paderborn, GERMANY, 2015-12-2 — /EPR Retail News/ — On October 27, 2015, a Europe-wide tender concluded with the signing of a contract for the delivery of new terminals for the Lotto outlets in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. The signing marked the official commission of Scientific Games and Wincor Nixdorf by Lotto-Toto GmbH Sachsen-Anhalt to deliver and install 725 terminals, including software. Wincor Nixdorf’s role in this cooperation will be the provision of the hardware: Xion/Mplus latest-generation lottery terminals. In addition, the company will be responsible for ongoing support and maintenance of the terminals.
These new systems promise significant advantages for both customers and the staff of the Lotto outlets: the larger 15” display is clearer and easier to read, and customer service will be enhanced by additional functions such as fingerprint scanning and price inquiries. The new barcode readers can register all the barcode variants currently in use, and thus also enable the use of barcodes on smart phone screens. An integrated webcam means that photos for customer cards can be made directly in the outlets and forwarded to Lotto headquarters for fast further processing.
“This important milestone required extensive preparation and negotiations, and we are very pleased that we have now reached it. The investment is important to enable our outlets to look after their customers in a more modern, service-oriented fashion,” say the Managing Directors of Lotto-Toto GmbH Sachsen-Anhalt Maren Sieb and Klaus Scharrenberg.
A total of 725 terminals will be delivered to the Lotto outlets in Saxony-Anhalt. The new terminals are scheduled to be up and running in the outlets by the third quarter of 2016. The investment was necessary since the terminals currently used by Lotto-Toto GmbH Sachsen-Anhalt are meanwhile ten years old.
