    The group will use the same uniform retail hardware and software across all formats, including hypermarkets, supermarkets, consumer electronic and sports stores. To support the rapid expansion of its retail operations through a uniform IT infrastructure, the group selected Wincor Nixdorf’s Beetle POS systems and TPLinux, an in-store open source software. It will also implement software components for administering entire IT branch operations as well as a business intelligence solution for evaluating customer purchasing trends.

    “The management of our stores based on solid data analysis will be of huge importance to the expansion of our retail business,” Rakesh Biyani, CEO Retail of the Future Group. According to research by the India retailer, the company was able to reduce the amount of time customers spent at the checkout by 75 per cent through the adoption of the POS software and hardware systems.

    “As retail companies expand their customer offerings across India, we aim to be at the forefront with our innovative IT solutions,” remarked Eckard Heidloff, CEO of Wincor Nixdorf AG.
