Wayne Fueling Systems and Wincor Nixdorf, the supplier of IT solutions and equipment to retailers and retail banking, have announced they intend to establish a global strategic alliance to provide industry-leading forecourt control, point-of-sale, back-office, and payment solutions to fuel retailing customers around the world.
Under this new collaboration, Wayne will provide its latest retail fuel station technology, including its Wayne Helix fuel dispenser and Wayne Fusion forecourt system.
Wincor Nixdorf will supply its Namos point-of-sale (POS) and back office software solutions and the Beetle family of retail terminals. Payment terminals from both companies will continue to be offered to customers based on industry requirements.
The two companies say the unified suite of products will deliver superior functionality across a full range of retail and commercial fueling networks
“Wayne and Wincor Nixdorf have both invested in developing products and technology on standard global platforms,” said Neil Thomas, CEO of Wayne Fueling Systems. “It was apparent, because of this shared, mindset that an alliance between the two companies would offer fuel retailers the best forecourt control and point-of-sales solution available in the industry.”
“Retail fuel station operators will benefit from faster end-to-end implementation of new functions, more innovative enhancements to existing solutions, and highly efficient project rollouts,” added Horst von Wels. “Equally important, they also benefit from a long-term secure investment in global platforms based on flexible technology that is designed to provide one base for a multitude of different business processes and retail store networks.”
