Diebold Nixdorf, U.S. Bank showcase 'connected commerce' at Super Bowl Live
Diebold Nixdorf has partnered with U.S. Bank to showcase the future of banking in advance of Super Bowl LII, which will take place Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis.
Super Bowl Live — a fan festival open to the public through game day — is hosting the U.S. Bank Possibilities Lounge in McCormick & Schmick's restaurant on the corner of Ninth Street and Nicollet Mall.
In the lounge, Diebold is showcasing its Essence self-service concept and its e-commerce locker solution, which together merge the online, mobile and store experience in a 'click-and-collect' model. Guests can discover the possibilities of connected commerce through virtual payments demonstrations using contactless transactions and virtual currency, the release said.
The e-commerce locker concept will offer guests an opportunity to receive a limited, exclusive gift centered around the big game. Guests scan their wearable device to find out whether they are a gift recipient, and then receive a notification on the device directing them to the locker where they can pick up their item.
"Having the big game in our headquarters market in Minneapolis is truly a unique opportunity for us to showcase our community," Dominic Venturo, chief innovation officer for U.S. Bank, said in the release. "We are particularly excited about the U.S. Bank Possibilities Lounge in partnership with VISA and Diebold Nixdorf as it will be a fun and interactive way for fans to engage in the future of payments."
"Our collaborative partnership with U.S. Bank is truly bringing the future of connected commerce to Super Bowl Live," said Richard Harris, Diebold Nixdorf vice president of design and concept development. "Through our presence at the U.S. Bank Possibilities Lounge, guests will be able to experience firsthand the innovative products that will soon become everyday reality."
