Wincor Nixdorf to showcase new IT solutions for public transport automation at the IT-TRANS trade fair in Karlsruhe, Germany, from March 1-3, 2016

Paderborn, GERMANY, 2016-Feb-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Wincor Nixdorf will be showcasing new IT solutions for public transport automation during the IT-TRANS trade fair in Karlsruhe, Germany, from March 1-3, 2016. At the global meeting place for experts from the public transport sector, the company will present itself with concepts for automating the time-consuming and cost-intensive cash handling processes in the back office and an ergonomic and secure ticket machine.

Every day, large amounts of cash are collected in many companies by employees working in the field, for example by conductors at railroad companies, (bus) drivers and ticket inspectors in the public transport sector or drivers for parcel services. The volume of cash that is moved here is by no means declining: Both the amount of cash and the number of transactions handled in cash are constantly on the rise. The secure, cost-efficient supply and disposal of banknotes and coins is associated with considerable manual effort for transport services. Cash takings have to be counted and further processed according to the two-person rule – a labor- and cost-intensive process. At IT-TRANS, Wincor Nixdorf will be showing two solutions that largely automate cash processes and guarantee security. Under the name SMART Cash Management, the company will present a compact and cost-efficient solution consisting of a deposit safe and customized software that provides for fast, correct deposits, prompt posting and secure storage of banknotes and coins.

For deposits of large volumes of cash, Wincor Nixdorf has developed the PROFESSIONAL Cash Management concept. This solution consists of an automated teller safe with a recycling function to make deposited banknotes available for dispensing once they have been validated as well as a coin module and the user-friendly CETIS software to control the cash processes. It enables seamless monitoring of cash processes and provides a variety of transaction data for monitoring and reporting purposes in real time.

Public transport companies that want to renew their ticket vending machines can now also turn to Wincor Nixdorf for solutions. The company has evaluated a modular system concept that can be flexibly adapted to the requirements of transport services. During development, the focus was on simple operation, security and optimum serviceability. The terminals can be remotely monitored with the aim of ensuring maximum availability of the systems.

Visitors to IT-TRANS can find Wincor Nixdorf at stand C13 in hall 1. Between 9 and 9.30 a.m. on March 3, 2016, Vera Loeffler, Business Development at Wincor Nixdorf, and Thomas Vogel will be talking about the optimization of cash processes as part of the presentation series “Efficient Operations 2” at Market Update Forum B.
