Wincor Nixdorf has won a contract to integrate its cash management system, consisting of staff-assisted self-service terminals, software and services, in the checkout zones and IT operations of Shell Deutschland’s 1,300 service stations.
Consumers will be able to pay for gas and can also fetch cash at terminals in Shell service stations. The new cash service is possible through co-operation with Germany’s Postbank. Moreover, the service is expected to ensure higher security for personnel and improve the efficiency of the cost-intensive cash-handling process.
In addition to installing its iCash systems and corresponding software, Wincor Nixdorf will provide system support as part of a five-year service package. The service package includes the processing and forwarding of transaction data from the service stations and data for processing payments.
In addition, Wincor Nixdorf will use information generated in the service stations to manage cash-in-transit (CiT) services, which collect and replenish cash in the stations.
Eckard Heidloff, CEO of Wincor Nixdorf, said: We are proud to implement the first nationwide installation of our cash management technology for such a well-known partner as Shell. We see huge potential for this technology in retail companies worldwide.
