Ikea standardizes POS infrastructure

Leiden, Netherlands – Ikea is deploying a standardized, comprehensive and internationally deployed POS software platform from Wincor-Nixdorf. During the next two years, Ikea will install nearly 12,000 POS terminals at 300 stores in 25 countries using Wincor Nixdorf’s TP Application Suite and TP.net software.

The recently signed six-year contract covers the installation and operation of POS systems and associated peripherals. It includes the operation and further development of Wincor Nixdorf’s POS software TP.net, which controls all checkout transactions in each Ikea store and consolidates all data across the retail group. Another component of the agreement is to provide services that ensure operation of all POS solutions.

“For Ikea, having a complete solution provided by a single source, Wincor Nixdorf, means not only less coordination in equipping our stores worldwide but also significantly lower rollout and operational costs,” said Paolo Cinelli, CIO of Ikea Group.
