Diebold Launches Storevolution, Under New Global Retail Executive

Diebold Nixdorf will showcase its latest in retail technologies at the National Retail Federation's show next week, a few days after announcing that Mark S. Brewer has joined the company as senior vice president and managing director of global retail.

Brewer comes to Diebold from DXC Technology, where he most recently served as global vice president of enterprise and cloud applications. Before that, he spent years in leadership roles at IBM.

"Mark's extensive retail industry and technology services experience, as well as his strong track record across the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific, give us the opportunity to capitalize on our strategic opportunities within the retail industry and further deliver solutions that surpass consumer demands," said Jürgen Wunram, Diebold Nixdorf interim co-president and co-CEO. "He is a perfect fit to lead our retail team and execute our retail growth strategy around the world."

Brewer comes on board as the company is unveiling its latest innovations in retail checkout technology through Storevolution, including Vynamic Engage, which encourages higher levels of customer centricity through personalized customer interactions; Vynamic Mobile Shopper, which is mobile self-scanning software; and Vynamic Mobile Retail, an app that enables quick scan-and-go checkout. All of these solutions customize the customer’s shopping experience based on previous buying patterns and behaviors.

Other technological advances include Managed Mobility Services, which can improve performance and availability of existing and new mobile devices in real time, while the BEETLE iSCAN EASY eXpress self-checkout solution now features RFID technology, employing a "scan and go" modality to act as an interactive kiosk or payments terminal that supports cashless payments.

The K-Two kiosks automate routine tasks and in-store transactions, including order-taking abilities at QSRs and restaurants, providing customer service, supplying product information and more.

"When it comes to retail, we understand the growing demand from consumers for personalized, connected and convenient shopping experiences," said Wunram. "We are constantly innovating and expanding our portfolio and software services to ensure that retailers have everything they need to address their operational needs along the evolving consumer journey."



The How We Shop Report, a PYMNTS collaboration with PayPal, aims to understand how consumers of all ages and incomes are shifting to shopping and paying online in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our research builds on a series of studies conducted since March, surveying more than 16,000 consumers on how their shopping habits and payments preferences are changing as the crisis continues. This report focuses on our latest survey of 2,163 respondents and examines how their increased appetite for online commerce and digital touchless methods, such as QR codes, contactless cards and digital wallets, is poised to shape the post-pandemic economy.
