NCR Releases Tablet POS System
DULUTH, Ga. – NCR this morning announced the launch of a tablet point-of-sale system for small business merchants. It runs on Android and Apple devices.
The mobile POS is touted as being plug-n-play so that an operator of a small business can turn on the product and begin accepting payments. The company says that the solid-state NCR Silver Register terminal is suitable for not only franchisees but even franchisees with large multi-unit ownership, who want a complete POS system that is easy to maintain.
"NCR Silver Register is designed to help small businesses and franchises to easily focus on what's important – delivering a higher level of customer service and modernizing their stores," said Chris Poelma, president and general manager of NCR Small Business. "The bundled solution is affordable and scalable, yet helps business owners power their businesses without the typical implementation challenges associated with many enterprise-level technology solutions."
The cloud-based platform allows small business operators to choose from available payment card processor. It eliminates some manual processes associated with inventory management.
Maritza Pichon, co-owner of Georgia-based chocolate store, M Chocolat, says the NCR Silver Register's interface provided more functionality than the server-based POS she used previously.
"The solution we had wasn't in the cloud, which meant updating the system was cumbersome and expensive because we had to hire a part-time IT person," Pinchon said. "As we began to grow, we needed a faster POS system that had more functionality, but was intuitive enough to use without any IT expertise. The NCR Silver Register has been a perfect match for our needs."
NCR Silver Register is a tablet and an integrated stand. Optional hardware includes a customer display, cash drawer, wireless printer and scanner.
