(PRWEB) October 16, 2014
Wincor Nixdorf, one of the world’s most successful providers of comprehensive IT solutions in retail banking and retail, and Retail Pro International, an international leader in retail management, today announced a global partnership by which Wincor Nixdorf and Retail Pro will deliver innovative solutions and added value by providing a global solution to meet the challenges of customers in the specialty retail segment. The joint plans, made public at the 2014 Retail Pro Global Conference, hosted in New Orleans, Louisiana, will expand the two firms’ global reach.
“Wincor Nixdorf is excited to be working with Retail Pro, a trusted global retail software provider for over a quarter century,” said Javier López-Bartolomé, Senior Vice President, Region Americas, and Wincor Nixdorf USA President and CEO. “We are joining forces to provide a total solution for the specialty retail marketplace.”
According to Patrick Leonard, Wincor Nixdorf Vice President, Retail North America, the two firms have been working together for some time to find the right solutions for their joint customer targets, culminating with testing and certifying Wincor Nixdorf’s hardware with Retail Pro’s software. Going forward, the two firms will join together in a cooperative global promotion giving Retail Pro resellers special pricing on Wincor Nixdorf’s iPOS plus bundle combined with the Retail Pro Prism software. The bundle will be available to qualified end users of most existing Retail Pro products.
Available through the end of September 2015, these bundles will be introduced in North America at the event and will next be unveiled in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
Wincor Nixdorf’s POS solutions are engineered with great reliability, serviceability, and a business model that enables global customer rollouts. The company has certified its BEETLE /Express 15 inch, BEETLE /iPOS plus and BEETLE /iPOS plus Advanced units with Retail Pro software, so resellers can be confident their customer rollouts are protected.
“Our environment-agnostic retail management platform, Retail Pro Prism, enables great flexibility, agility, security, accuracy, and operational control for the specialty retailer,” said Kevin Connor, Director of Product Strategy at Retail Pro International. “Together with Wincor Nixdorf’s hardware, we have one great end-to-end solution to offer specialty retailers across the globe.”
As diamond sponsor at the October Retail Pro partner and customer event, Wincor Nixdorf will showcase its all-in-one portfolio of solutions that give specialty retailers flexibility in meeting their specific needs and budgets through their choice of a good, better, and best approach. Wincor Nixdorf will also highlight the ability of partners to leverage Wincor Nixdorf services to complement or expand their own service options.
Don Paschal, head of the North American channel for Wincor Nixdorf’s Retail Division, will lead a presentation titled, “Mega-trends in Specialty Retail” at the conference on Monday, October 20. The discussion will examine technology trends that potentially impact specialty retailers’ businesses.
