Wincor World 2008: a successful demonstration of solution expertise
Wincor World 2008, which was staged in Paderborn from January 29 to 31, once again attracted more than 7,000 visitors from all over the world. Immediately after the event, the organizers were able to draw a favorable conclusion in every respect as regards this three-day in-house trade fair: Wincor World has established itself even more as an international get-together for experts from the banking and retail industries. And to an even greater extent than in previous years, the exhibits and presentations succeeded in illustrating how customary processes at bank branches and retail stores can be overhauled and streamlined with cutting-edge information technology.
“Feedback from our customers confirms that it was the right decision to expand our portfolio to include additional and more sophisticated services,” said Andreas Bruck, Head of Corporate Communication at Wincor Nixdorf. He added that IT decision-makers from all around the world had registered the company’s shift from a pure hardware vendor to a provider of integrated solutions for transforming branch and store business. “More and more, our relationships with customers have taken on the quality of a discussion between partners regarding solutions that combine hardware, software and service to make entire processes more customer-friendly and efficient,” continued Bruck.
Wincor Nixdorf and 60 partner exhibitors presented product, software, consulting and other services not just for banks and retail companies, but also for postal companies, operators of restaurant chains or canteens and lottery companies. In all, around 600 different exhibits could be seen across an area of 7,000 square meters. The concept of offering not just an exhibition at the newly designed trade fair center, but also a program of presentations and workshops, once again proved its value.
