The Globus Group, a leading European retailer with stores across Germany, Russia and the Czech Republic, is driving connected commerce at the point-of-sale (POS) with more than 4,500 new systems and software from Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD).
The new systems will run on Diebold Nixdorf’s POS software, TP.net, and enable Globus to introduce eCommerce services such as the ability to order online and pick up in-store, or to return items by post that were purchased from a store. The software will provide an enhanced consumer experience as well as the fast, flexible integration of new applications and lay the foundation for more efficient cross-channel management.
“Diebold Nixdorf’s software-driven solutions enable us to standardize our POS data and processes internationally, in all the countries in which we operate,” said Olaf Schomaker, managing director for HR, IT and controlling at Globus. “Moreover, it will enable us to take advantage of every option for introducing and expanding innovative consumer services, including mobile applications and new self-service and payment options.”
In addition, these future-oriented solutions enable Globus to facilitate the central management of the international store network and flexibly integrate new sales channels. While the hardware rollout has already begun, the implementation of the software will continue throughout 2017.
“The core element of Diebold Nixdorf’s retail strategy is to help customers align their businesses to meet consumer needs and to offer internationally scalable solutions,” said Christian Weisser, senior vice president and managing director, Europe Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Diebold Nixdorf. “Our expansive portfolio of innovative retail solutions as well as our deep relationships with key retailers across the globe are driving the future of consumer transactions.”
