TP.net certified for SAP for Retail

(PresseBox) (Paderborn , ) Wincor Nixdorf, the European market leader in checkout solutions, has had integration of its store software TP.net in SAP for Retail officially certified by SAP. Certification of the interfaces means that Wincor Nixdorf has taken a further step toward securing the future success of the software, which maps all store processes. The solution is already integrated in SAP and being run by many international customers.

TP.net is a platform solution for all checkout processes at retail stores and has numerous interfaces to merchandise management systems from leading vendors such as SAP, Microsoft and Aldata or custom solutions. Seamless integration between the central ERP and local POS solution at the store is essential to creating end-to-end transparency in retailers’ processes throughout the supply and demand chain. “Wincor Nixdorf has traditionally been an active driver of standardization in retail IT. Wincor Nixdorf Retail Consulting and SAP have worked to certify this online data transfer with SAP and accomplished it within a very short time,” stated Dr. Michael Schulte, Head of Software Marketing at Wincor Nixdorf.

Certification of the interface to SAP for Retail means that TP.net now has a further module for rounding out the solutions it offers for international retailing companies. It enables central parameterization, campaign design and analysis of key commercial indicators and, when linked to the central merchandise management system, is a necessary addition for providing seamless support for typical retail processes. Online communication between the local and central components of TP.net and direct integration with merchandise management means that retailers can respond effectively to internal and external influences and implement strategic measures promptly.

In the past three years, 37 retailing companies from 19 countries have decided in favor of the TP.net store software from Wincor Nixdorf, tantamount to more than 40,000 licenses sold worldwide. “Clarendon Reports, the world’s leading provider of technology market data for the retail and hospitality sectors, published its key figures for the retail software market for the first time 2006. These placed Wincor Nixdorf as a market leader in software applications for retail stores," said Michael Schulte. The study's assessment was based on sales generated from software solutions in 2005. According to Clarendon’s Worldwide Data Book 2006, only Microsoft posted higher software sales, mainly from operating system software, in this segment in Europe. Wincor Nixdorf was ahead specifically in the areas of POS software and store support software, i.e. software applications that support store automation.
