Berlin's Deutsche Klassenlotterie to equip lottery outlets with Wincor Nixdorf terminal solutions
The "Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin" (DKLB) is to be the sixth German lotto and toto company (out of a total of 16) to deploy Wincor Nixdorf technology in its lottery outlets and is going to swap the old terminals in its 1,188 outlets for Wincor Nixdorf Xion /Mtop terminals by the end of 2006.
This award came as part of an EU-wide tendering process which Wincor Nixdorf succeeded in winning against its competitors. As well as the 1,300 terminals, the DKLB order also includes the Xicore terminal software.
"This win is another key milestone for our lottery business", said Rainer Schilbach, Director of Wincor Nixdorf's Lottery Solutions business unit. "We're very proud that we've been able to win DKLB as a new customer and see this as yet another confirmation of the open, flexible systems concept we're pursuing", he continued.
Hans-Jürgen Reißiger, DKLB Vice-President, commented, "Of all suppliers, Wincor Nixdorf made us the most economically favorable offer. We are convinced we've chosen a highly capable, innovative supplier for our next generation of terminals and are looking forward to working with Wincor Nixdorf."
At the same time as introducing the new terminals, DKLB is also to install the Ximedia central editorial content management system. This server will feed the marketing displays connected to the new terminals with information and multimedia content. In addition, the content server can also be used to change advertising and promotional text printed on lottery tickets and to transmit up-to-date information to the cashier and customer displays.
In order to enable fast, uncomplicated distribution of terminal software, DKLB decided on the tried-and-tested Xiload download server - also a Wincor Nixdorf solution.
