Move extends NCRs self-service leadership to quick-service restaurants

NCR Corporation announced that it has acquired InfoAmerica, a privately held company and leading provider of self-service solutions for the quick-service restaurant industry. Based in Fort Collins, Colo., InfoAmerica is a pioneer in self-service for the fast-food segment and has developed kiosk solutions for many of the industrys major companies, including four of the top 10 quick-service restaurants. InfoAmerica has more products currently installed in quick-service restaurants in North America than any other competitor. This acquisition further supports our mission to aggressively grow our self-service business and extends our self-service competency into another rapidly growing segment, said Lee Schram, senior vice president of NCRs Retail Solutions Division. By aligning InfoAmericas proven software with NCRs global infrastructure and self-service expertise, we are enabling businesses worldwide to successfully address the growing consumer demand for greater convenience. NCR and InfoAmerica announced a joint self-service solution for the quick-service market in October 2004 that coupled InfoAmericas Touchware interface with NCR EasyPointâ„¢ kiosks. InfoAmerica will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of NCR and will be hardware-independent. With a host of self-service solutions deployed worldwide, from ATMs to self-checkout to self-service kiosks, NCR offers us the resources and experience to take our company to the next level by providing greater service to our current customers as well as addressing new market opportunities overseas, said InfoAmerica President Paul Knight.
