Wincor World 2007 presents IT solutions for optimizing banking and retail processes The theme of Wincor World 2007, “Your Compass to Innovation,” is an invitation to a dialog on trend-setting IT solutions for optimizing processes in bank branches and retail stores. Across 10,000 square meters and in conjunction with more than 70 of its partners, Wincor Nixdorf will be presenting products, software, consulting and services. Wincor World will also once again provide an information platform for experts from banking and retail through its program of workshops and presentations. The symposium ‘Focus: The Customer is King’ will be presented on January 30th in affiliation with the renowned financial newspaper Börsen-Zeitung. The program progresses with the second symposium – ‘Checkout Revolution’ on February 1st. At this event, hosted collaboratively by Wincor Nixdorf and the International Retail Network (EHI-Retail Institute), experts explore trends and relay their experiences with new technologies in the POS zone. Retail Horizons – Vision from Store to Enterprise Wincor Nixdorf brings together the key issues of automation, self-service, and consumer technology under its rubric ‘Retail Horizons - From Store to Enterprise’. The ‘shopping mall’ will feature modular solutions for different store types, from new checkout variants and retail cash management solutions to central store management. Mobile solutions for stores and consumers, reverse vending systems, visual merchandising solutions and kiosk systems for customer information and an expanded service offer can also be seen here. Wincor Nixdorf will be showing how RFID Technology can be used in canteens and other hospitality settings in a realistic demonstration; ‘intelligent plates’ at the food counter help diners by streamlining the process of paying for food. This checkout solution relies on RFID technology. The retail exhibits also include both a comprehensive presentation of the retail store software portfolio, focusing on enterprise solutions for the centralized management of chain store structures, and product highlights and innovations in the shopping mall’s ‘hardware store.’ Banking – optimizing branch operations Wincor Nixdorf presents holistic solutions for optimizing processes at retail banks and in other industries, too. Cash management forms a core part of process optimization and Wincor Nixdorf offers solutions to ensure that all means of payment, including banknotes, checks, documents and coins, are managed effectively, ensuring a transparent cash flow within the branch. ProCash Analyzer software is important for effective cash management, because it allows replenishment intervals and amounts for all cash points to be configured precisely. This allows banks to reduce cash handling and logistics costs and save interest expenses without affecting the availability of cash systems. Wincor Nixdorf also specializes in security solutions. At Wincor World, you’ll see a complete security concept for retail banks’ branch IT, including product security, process security and building security. By focusing on intelligently networking innovative basic technologies, the assets of both customers and financial institutions are secured against physical and logical attacks. The monitoring center enables greater transparency in self-service operations by bundling different software tools intelligently to manage and monitor system networks. Self-service operations are consequently more effective and banks reduce their costs and achieve higher levels of customer satisfaction. In addition to the solutions described above, the Banking Division presents a comprehensive, scalable portfolio of intelligent cash solutions, including the intelligent deposit of checks, banknotes and coins. Services – New solutions, platforms and strategies Wincor Nixdorf’s services division is on course for worldwide growth; this is its presentation principle at Wincor World. The eServices Platform – which manages service processes and levels electronically on a globally unified basis – documents this trend. Improving integration and automating service processes accelerates service transactions and leads to higher availability of the customer’s IT systems. Beyond developing future-oriented tools and technology, Wincor Nixdorf is committed to the continuous expansion and internationalization of its service portfolio. This commitment demonstrates the company’s interest in taking on an even more important role in the IT service market for the retail and banking industries. Branch-specific, flexible self-service and ICT outsourcing solutions and global managed services will power this strategy. As part of this approach, Wincor Nixdorf can also assume responsibility for operating ICT systems and infrastructures. Successful customer projects reflect Wincor Nixdorf’s expertise in taking on responsibility for its customers’ essential IT tasks. This expertise is complemented by our managed cash cycle services, with which we address the complete cash management process across industries.
