NCR Adds Money-Saving Features to Checkout Software

Friday 27 February 2004 19:20 CET | News

NCR has introduced a package of new features available with its Advanced Checkout Solution (ACS) software suite, offering retailers additional opportunities to drive down point of sale (POS) acquisition and support costs while enhancing operational efficiency.

Designed for national and regional chains with high-volume checkout operations, ACS is a ready-to-install, open system that also is highly customizable. The features announced today are enhancements to ACS version 6.0, which was introduced in 2003. Among the new ACS offerings is a low-cost workstation server configuration that allows the server applications to run on POS terminals instead of separate in-store servers. This feature eliminates the cost of the servers and their associated operating systems, significantly reducing acquisition and maintenance costs while still providing best-in-class resiliency. Another new feature, the ACS Remote Update Process, can help retailers reduce their ongoing software support costs. This enhancement allows ACS users to automatically update the server and POS terminal operating system, system options and applications without user intervention. NCR also offers additional cashier interface options with ACS. A new touchscreen interface is now available as an alternative to the acclaimed NCR DynaKey interface or a standard keyboard. NCRs human factors engineering experts guided development of the new touchscreen interface to help retailers reduce training time and optimize cashier productivity. In addition, ACS supports check imaging capabilities available with the NCR RealPOS 7176 multifunction printer and other printers. NCRs comprehensive hardware, software and services offerings provide a single-source option for check truncation or conversion solutions.
