Wincor Nixdorf enters the hospitality market

Wincor Nixdorf recently announced that it has entered the hospitality market to offer stadia and entertainment venues the ability to maximise revenue opportunities. The move is supported by the launch of cloud-based Kappture PoS software to help venues deliver seamless payment solutions, and an enhanced customer experience.

Backed by Wincor Nixdorf’s strong foundation in retail, the company’s innovative cloud-based, tablet point-of-sale (POS) solution will be available to provide real-time payment data, allowing financial, IT and operational staff to gain a complete picture of performance across a venue to make important sales decisions and reduce support calls as a result.

With 83 per cent of stadium visitors buying drinks and 74 per cent buying food on match days[1], there is a need for efficient payments to meet ongoing demand. As part of the solution, the POS software manages credit and debit card transactions, including contactless payments and wristband payments. The move will build on Wincor Nixdorf’s already strong global foundation and accelerate the company’s position in hospitality, attracting customers worldwide.

Wincor Nixdorf’s entry into the hospitality market builds on the success of its most recent new business win with the Rugby Football Union (RFU), thanks to its partnership with Addvance IT. The solution has been selected by Twickenham Stadium (pictured above) for its speed of transactions, customer service benefits, ease of operation and access to real-time business information.

Craig Bevan, Managing Director, Retail at Wincor Nixdorf, said:

We are delighted to be working with stadia and entertainment venues globally to enable them to deliver efficient transactions. Using our proven ability in retail, we will ensure high uptime of checkouts to provide maximum revenue opportunities and most importantly, help to ensure that customers receive a quick and easy payment experience.
