Saarland Sporttoto orders terminal solutions from Wincor Nixdorf
Saarland Sporttoto GmbH (SST) is the eighth of a total of 16 German lottery companies to move their lottery outlets across to terminal solutions from Wincor Nixdorf. SST is to commence the terminal replacement drive at the beginning of 2006 and start using the new-generation terminals as early as March 2006.
The order placed by SST - the lottery operator in Germany's most westerly province - comprises not only the supply of 468 Xion /Mtop terminals, but also the Xicore terminal software. Once installed, the Xion /Mtop units will also - for the first time - allow customers to top up their telephone cards.
"This order means we've won half of all the orders placed by German lottery companies in the current RFP phase", said Rainer Schilbach, head of the Lottery Solutions business unit in Constance, Germany. "Uncompromising use of standards throughout, and the ability to provide terminals which are fast and easy to use - and which offer great benefits to the customer - have really paid off", continued Schilbach.
"In introducing a new generation of systems, our aim is to achieve a high level of flexibility, customer-friendliness and process security", said Dietmar Hoffmann, Manager, Data Processing & Gaming Operations at Saarland Sporttoto GmbH. "We are convinced that we can achieve these goals with Wincor Nixdorf's terminal solutions."
