Wincor Nixdorf crowned Top Retail Supplier again

Published: 15 June 2016 y., Wednesday

Having won the Top Retail Supplier award in 2015, Wincor Nixdorf has won it again this year. This award is conferred on IT companies that offer retailers an overall package of excellent solutions, and is run by Frankfurt-based Lebensmittelzeitung, a newspaper for the grocery segment, and by Cologne-based EHI Retail Institute.

The Top Retail Supplier award goes, in particular, to those IT service providers who have excelled at the “retail technology awards europe”. For nine years now, these awards have been conferred by EHI for outstanding IT projects in the retail sector. The Polish subsidiary of McDonald’s, the US fast food group, won in the Best Instore Solution category this year. Together with Wincor Nixdorf as its IT partner, McDonald’s has developed an interactive kiosk terminal at which guests can choose their meals and pay by card. The food is then served directly at the table. This minimizes service times and creates a new service experience. McDonald’s Poland is the first of the company’s European subsidiaries to introduce this IT-based Create Your Taste solution for its customers.

Another award went to Coop Switzerland at “retail technology awards europe” – also in the Best Instore Solution category. As part of its service, this cooperative company offers its customers various scanning and checkout options. In many supermarkets and megastores, customers can scan items using either the hand-held scanners provided at the entrance or their own smartphones. On top of that, Coop customers have the choice between attended and self-service checkouts. As an IT partner of Coop Switzerland, Wincor Nixdorf has provided self-checkout systems that are tailored to Coop’s specific requirements.

The last year, awards were already conferred on companies cooperating with Wincor Nixdorf – for instance Kiabi, the French fashion retailer, and Lunar GmbH, the IT subsidiary of Edeka, which is the largest grocery chain in Germany. These two companies have also implemented pioneering technology projects in conjunction with Wincor Nixdorf. As a result, Wincor Nixdorf is the record award winner at the “retail technology awards europe”.

Daniel Ochs, Head of Sales at Lebensmittelzeitung, presented the Top Retail Supplier 2016 award to Thomas Fell, who is the member of Wincor Nixdorf’s Executive Board in charge of global IT business with retailers, in May 2016. “We are very pleased to receive this award again and view it as a confirmation of our work to date. At the same time, it represents a challenge to continue providing retail businesses around the world with innovative, intelligent, useful solutions for streamlining business processes and optimizing customer service concepts,” said Thomas Fell during the award ceremony at Wincor Nixdorf’s head office in Paderborn, Germany.
