Kodak, the worldwide leader in retail print solutions with 105,000 Kodak Picture Kiosks, and DM-Drogerie Markt, Germany's second largest drug store chain, have decided to continue their successful relationship. By end of 2012, DM will be the first European retailer to offer Kodak Photo Books and Kodak Personal Greeting cards nationwide, giving consumers the convenience and ease to create personal, high-quality photo products in minutes. So far, DM has 4,000 Kodak Picture Kiosks in its 1,200 stores nationwide.
"We are investing in the newest digital photo center from Kodak to ensure our customers enjoy an exceptional photo creation experience. Kodak has been a tremendous partner, delivering high-quality solutions and premium products in front of and behind the counter, which integrate seamlessly with our existing fleet," said Christoph Werner, Managing Director, DM Deutschland. "By continuing to partner with Kodak, DM maintains its leadership position as the number one instant kiosk print retailer in Western Europe by offering innovative photo retail solutions and superior customer service."
"This partnership reassures the South African market that KODAK still has a strong presence and continues to thrive in Europe, which boosts the confidence of local retailers as Kodak is still a leading brand in the printing industry," said Anthony Doyle, Sales Director, Optus Brands, South Africa. "It shows that Kodak has continued to innovate to deliver a unique in-store experience and a full suite of photo services, so consumers can easily create meaningful, high quality photo products to share life's moments."
DM was one of the first European retailers to use Kodak Picture Kiosks, and in 2008, installed one of the first Kodak Adaptive Picture Exchange (APEX) dry lab systems. By year-end, DM will have 150 APEX dry lab systems installed in their stores. The APEX system helps retailers improve productivity and lower operating costs.
