NCR to Demo New POS Payment Solution

Friday 14 May 2004 00:55 CET | News

NCR has introduced retailers to its latest generation POS payment terminal offering new levels of customer service, investment protection and operational efficiency for checkout operations.

Leveraging NCRs extensive intellectual property portfolio, the new terminal incorporates the companys patented signature capture capabilities, widely used by retailers for paper-free credit and debit transactions. Signature capture allows consumers to sign and go when they make purchases in a store - reducing steps at the checkout and saving seven seconds or more during a typical credit card transaction. The new NCR solution is designed to reduce retailers total cost of ownership. For example, the resistive touchscreen features a durable, retail-rugged protective overlay that is field-replaceable and allows the use of a low-cost passive stylus. With long-term investment protection in mind, NCR has equipped the terminal to read smart cards as well as magnetic stripe cards and has incorporated mechanisms to enable future interfaces with technologies such as biometrics or forms of payment based on radio frequency identification. Available with a color or monochrome display, NCRs newest POS payment terminal offers added value at the checkout. It can serve as a customer display, providing a scrolling receipt of the transaction and information about in-store promotions, advertising, surveys or other marketing communications. The unique design gives retailers the option to further reinforce store branding with a logo or unique color on the bezel surrounding the screen. Multiple stylus mounting options allow retailers to choose the mounting location that works best for their checkout environment. NCR is demonstrating its new payment terminal to retailers at the Retail Systems 2004 Conference & Exposition, May 17-19 in Chicago. It will be available for customer delivery in the third quarter of this year.
