ESSEN, Germany, April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Diebold Nixdorf (NYSE: DBD), a world leader in driving connected commerce, has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award for its new interactive retail kiosk solution, the K-two. Internationally recognized as the authority for product design quality, The Red Dot Awards, presented by Design Zentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen, are selected by 40 independent designers, design professors and trade journalists. Diebold Nixdorf’s systems were honored by the expert panel for their exemplary combination of functionality and design and their intuitive, fast and convenient operation.
The K-two retail kiosk is distinguished by a user-friendly and flexible design that can be easily adapted to changing business needs and consumer demands. It is built for 24/7 operation and offers flexible configuration options. Retailers can choose between 22″ and 27″ multi-touchscreens, install the unit as a stand-alone kiosk or in a back-to-back format, and even mount it on a pole or on a wall, making it the perfect kiosk for businesses that demand tailored solutions.
Diebold Nixdorf has installed more than 10,000 prior-generation kiosks for quick-service restaurants around the world, primarily taking customer orders and payments. The kiosks can also be used for other various applications, including theatre ticket and lottery sales, in-store navigation maps, and even self-checkout.
“I want to congratulate the award winners on their wonderful success in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2018. Success in the competition is proof of the good design quality of the products and once again shows that companies are on the right path,” said Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. “When I speak about good design, I am referring to more than just an attractive product. All of the products are characterised by outstanding functionality. This demonstrates that the designers have understood their clients and their needs.”
The K-two kiosk will be widely available for retailers to order in mid-2018. Mark Brewer, Diebold Nixdorf senior vice president and managing director, Global Retail, said, “The Red Dot Awards confirm our strategy of developing rigorously customer-oriented systems with future-proof designs. Our solutions make a significant contribution to generating customer enthusiasm, offering consumers extraordinary shopping experiences, and building bridges from the physical to the digital worlds of retail.”
