Unipower Systems Ltd, e-Commerce solutions provider for the retail sector and Wincor Nixdorf, European supplier of IT Solutions to the retail and banking industries, have formed an alliance to help retailers build successful online businesses.

The alliance means that retailers will have the opportunity to combine Unipower’s powerful ShoppingMagic e-commerce middleware with hardware and software technology from Europe’s leading IT solutions provider for the retail and banking sectors. Wincor Nixdorf operates in more than 40 countries with the third-largest market share in computerised checkouts and ATM installations worldwide.

Jürgen Wilde, executive board member of Wincor Nixdorf said, "Customers use our technology through the entire value chain, from stores to head office. Solutions often include POS (point of sale) systems, electronic cash and self-scanning all the way to customer relationship programmes. Developing this agreement with Unipower means that we will provide retailers with a one stop shop for e-Commerce solutions."

Unipower’s customers include many of the world’s leading retail organisations such as Tesco in the UK and Dutch retailer Royal Ahold. Unipower’s technology has been used to implement applications such as home-shopping, workplace-shopping and web-based EDI (electronic data interchange) all with true multi-channel capability via PC, digital TV, WAP, kiosks, EPOS (electronic point of sale) and barcode scanning devices.

Adrian King, chief executive of Unipower, says, "Our products are suitable for retailers worldwide especially with the new multi channel shopping solutions whereby e-shoppers and retailers can choose whatever channels are best for them. By working with Wincor Nixdorf our powerful e-Commerce solutions will be made available to the top global retailers to help them implement first class e-retail offerings."
