Wincor Nixdorf expands its branch in Katowice. The company plans to almost double the number of employees by the end of first quarter 2016. The IT firm has also celebrated an office opening in a new location.
Wincor Nixdorf is one of the world’s leading providers of IT solutions and services to retailers and retail banking. The company is present in Katowice since 1999. „That time we had started with six or seven people on board. In 2011, the company decided to open a research and development center in Katowice. Today we employ 225 specialists. Our former seat was too small and we decided to move to the new building. By the end of the first quarter of 2016, we want to increase the number of employees to 400. It is a very ambitious plan due to the very strong competition in Katowice, however we are convinced it is possible” – said Mirosław Janik, chairman of the board of Wincor Nixdorf Poland.
The company has moved to the Brynów Center office building located at 4 Gawronów St. and occupies approximately 4 000 sq. meters (three floors). Modern office spaces, including co-working rooms, rooms for individual work, relax rooms, research and development laboratory, and kitchens were put at employees disposal.
The branch in Katowice is focused on research, development and implementation of TP.net applications. As it is explained by the company, the solutions provide the integrated platform that enables retailers to develop a single customer experience within an omni-channel format. Customer transaction, preference and personalization data is captured, managed, analyzed and shared for use on every channel, helping retailers maximize every purchasing opportunity and boost their share of the market. „Here, in Katowice, we work on solutions which are implemented to our customers’ enterprises around the globe” – Mirosław Janik added.
Apart from the research and development center, the Katowice branch consists of a global delivery center, which is responsible for the implementation of the solutions and customer care.
