NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, has launched the NCR Silver family of point-of-sale (POS) solutions to Australian retail, service and restaurant merchants.
NCR Silver is an integrated payment, marketing and management solution that can transform a tablet into a complete POS system, capable of sales reporting, employee management, inventory management and more.
Designed for small business merchants, NCR Silver is ideal for those who need a mobile solution to complete transactions as well as manage business remotely.
One of NCR Silver’s first customers is Sydney-based Arepas Australia, which currently operates two markets. The popular Venezuelan restaurant chose the NCR Silver Pro Restaurant app for its intuitiveness and quick access to sales reporting.
“I find it very user-friendly and easy to use,” said Arepas Australia owner Ybrahim Camero. “With NCR Silver, I can see trends, I can do email marketing, I can see what my top seller is. It’s a super comprehensive system that gives me everything I need.”
NCR Silver launched in the United States four years ago to address the needs of small businesses, which often favour cloud-based technology.
“We’ve developed NCR Silver specifically for the small business market in mind,” said Adam McArdle, Regional Director, APAC, NCR. “We understand the challenges small businesses face, what’s going to make an impact on their bottom line and the value they place on customers, so we’re confident that this new offering will help them manage and grow their business.”
The new NCR Silver suite of software solutions includes:
· NCR Silver core app - offers mobile payments, intuitive sales reporting, integrated loyalty and more, and is suitable for small to medium-sized businesses
· NCR Silver Pro Restaurant app - designed for food-service merchants who want to serve customers faster, optimise staffing, manage table locations, provide promotional pricing and more
NCR Silver operates on iOS and closed Android devices.
NCR Silver offers 24/7 customer support and the unique Silver Concierge service, which provides initial remote setup and remote monthly menu maintenance.
“NCR’s focus is on developing technology that gives small businesses the freedom and flexibility they need to make life easier,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager of NCR Silver. “NCR Silver has a low cost of entry and quick, professional implementation support so customers can get up and running faster with minimal disruption.”
