Wincor Nixdorf Introduces 7-Year Warranty on BEETLE POS Systems

7-Year Depot Warranty + BEETLE’s Unmatched Durability = the Most Reliable POS in the Industry

NRF Annual Convention 2010
Booth #729

AUSTIN, Texas--()--Wincor Nixdorf Inc. today announced the retail industry’s longest and most complete warranty on POS systems – a 7-year depot warranty on standard BEETLE POS models in the U.S. The 7-year warranty is a testimony to the BEETLE’s extraordinary durability and superior engineering; BEETLE POS systems deliver unmatched reliability and performance, and now include the retail industry’s best warranty as well. As the average life of a POS system is 7 years, this will be the first time that retailers will have a fixed total cost of the POS for its expected lifetime.

With the 7-year warranty, Wincor Nixdorf extends its leadership in delivering a low Total Cost of Ownership in POS systems. The long life of BEETLE systems, coupled with low maintenance costs, reduces annual operating costs and ensures the longevity of a retailer’s mission-critical store systems. The warranty covers parts and labor on standard BEETLE models, and guaranteed spare parts availability for additional 7 years following product end-of-life further extends the life of BEETLE systems. In addition to the standard 7-year depot warranty, retailers can select from an extensive range of other service options, including on-site maintenance as well as a wide range of managed services.

Wincor Nixdorf’s BEETLE POS is one of the retail industry’s most proven hardware platforms, with more than 1.4 million systems installed worldwide. BEETLEs are engineered for long life and maximum performance, with a retail-hardened design that can withstand the harshest operating environments. Optional solid-state drives completely eliminate all moving parts, further reducing the risk and high cost of POS failure.

BEETLE POS systems are proven in many different retail formats – including specialty, grocery, mass merchants and hospitality – with customers such as Burlington Coat Factory; Fossil, Inc. (NASDAQ: FOSL); Hannaford Supermarkets; Lowe’s® (NYSE: LOW); OfficeMax® Incorporated (NYSE: OMX); Pizza Hut™, Inc. (NYSE: YUM); Rite Aid Corp. (NYSE: RAD); and many others.

Wincor Nixdorf will showcase the BEETLE POS systems with 7-year warranty next week at NRF 2010, booth #729, Jan. 11-12 in New York City. The BEETLE is part of Wincor Nixdorf’s comprehensive portfolio of retail store solutions, from POS and Self-Checkout to Retail Cash Management and Mobile Shopping.

“Wincor Nixdorf has a long heritage of ‘best in class’ reliability and durability in retail systems, and once again we’re raising the bar with the 7-year warranty on BEETLE systems,” said Doug Wallace, VP and General Manager of Wincor Nixdorf, Inc.’s Retail Division. “With this warranty, replacement cost of any component is fixed for the typical lifetime of a POS system. With BEETLE POS systems, retailers can be assured of getting the utmost from their investment in POS systems -- a very low TCO with guaranteed reliability, performance and long system life.”
