AUSTIN, Texas -- Wincor Nixdorf inc. has announced an expansion of its partner program to include resellers in North America.

Wincor Nixdorf's program provides partners with access to a broad portfolio of retail solutions. The portfolio includes point-of-sale (POS), kiosk, self checkout (SCO), cash management and other software-based backoffice solutions.

Authorized partners benefit from reduced competition through Wincor's deal registration process, which eliminates channel conflict. They also receive special incentives, including accelerated rebates, demo equipment, training and sales support and marketing funds for advertising, shows and exhibitions and a variety of other lead-generation activities.

"Today's retail solutions are becoming more complex, and when retailers make purchasing decisions, they must not only take into account their IT environments today, but they must also factor in their vision for the future," said Patrick Leonard, vice president of retail for North America. "In the past, channel partners supporting smaller retail customers have been limited to lower-end POS solutions where price supersedes capabilities--our partner program aims to change the game by providing partners with state-of-the-art solutions that fit their unique requirements for all of their customers."
