Store software for retail companies writes a new chapter in its success story: the 100,000th license for TP Application Suite goes to J.A. Woll
Wincor Nixdorf continues its success story in the area of store software for retail companies with the sale of the 100,000th license for its TPApplication Suite software to the company J.A. Woll Handels GmbH, which operates more than 40 special item stores in Germany. The retailer ordered 245 licenses for the POS application TP.net Frontstore along with other components of the TP.net solution portfolio, which offers components for the centralized control of a retail company’s store landscape. Consulting and support services during software integration are also included in the scope of the project. The rollout of the software should be finished by the end of 2010. Following rollout, Wincor Nixdorf will provide services for a period of at least five years.
“The high quality of the solution and the sheer breadth of TP.net’s functionality were both important reasons why we chose this software,“ comments Ingo Stern, Managing Director and Partner at J.A. Woll. “Other decisive factors were the solution’s easy integration in our merchandise management system and TP.net’s flexibility in mapping and – where necessary – quickly and easily adapting our processes.”
In addition to using TP.net for the company’s POS application, in the future J.A. Woll will implement it for the control of all of its stores, for promotion management and for analyzing business success. The most important criteria in favor of the software were the solution’s modern architecture, extensive functionality and the comfortable option of administering all the stores from headquarters.
In 2004, Wincor Nixdorf restructured its software portfolio. With the TP Application Suite, it introduced a new and future-oriented solution architecture to the market. In just the last six years, the software has proven its worth in more than 100 retail companies around the world.
“It was important to us to find a strong solution supplier who could guarantee us a reliable partnership over the long term. We’ve found that partner in Wincor Nixdorf,“ Ingo Stern notes.
The heart of the TP.Application Suite is its functions in the stores: the solution controls more than just traditional POS systems. The store components integrate self-service checkouts, payment stations, mobile solutions for self-service shopping, electronic shelf labeling systems, reverse vending machines, cash management automation systems and warehousing. Yet mapping and controlling store processes isn’t enough: critical challenges that retail companies face in their store structures include the central control of the store landscape and the need to secure customer loyalty through targeted measures. Whether a retailer needs to update software, parameterize individual checkouts in its stores, ensure targeted and coordinated campaigns and promotions or monitor individual stores, TPAdmin can perform all these tasks comfortably from one central location. TPAnalyze is a business intelligence component that can be used, for example, for online monitoring of the development of sales or the success of advertising campaigns in individual stores, groups of stores or regions. TPLoyalty delivers customer loyalty functions, with precise customer segmenting mechanisms, targeted campaigns and customer loyalty programs as well as the immediate control of the success of the individual customer loyalty measures implemented.
