NCR Corporation announced a new NCR Silver Quantum POS commerce station featuring Samsung Galaxy tablet.
The NCR Silver Quantum POS commerce station has mobile wallet acceptance capability, customer display and loyalty scanner. The commerce system will manage customer POS transactions and back-office operations for retail merchants.
The 10.1-inch Android Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet is pre-loaded with the NCR Silver Android point-of-sale app for delivering inventory management, marketing support and sales reporting once activated through NCR. Businesses can remotely set up and customize their NCR Silver Quantum device through IT administration tool Samsung Knox Configure.
Chamblee, Ga.-based Ponko Chicken, a restaurant going for further expansion, selected NCR Silver Quantum.
NCR Silver Quantum and the NCR Silver of solutions are designed for small- to medium-sized businesses such as retail shops and restaurants.
NCR Silver Quantum includes an embedded RP457c mobile card reader provided by Ingenico Group, for the commerce station to accept payment methods, including magstripe, EMV chip and NFC/contactless transactions such as Samsung Pay.
NCR Silver Quantum offers battery life of up to 10 hours for merchants who want cordless operation, and has a small physical footprint, measuring less than 13 inches in width.
“The commerce station is durable, payment processor agnostic and provides chip and mobile wallet functionality,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager of NCR Silver.
“With this new commerce station, NCR and Samsung are providing retailers with a technology solution that can simplify employee management of transactions and improve customer shopping experiences, while ensuring processes remain in smooth operation,” said Ted Brodheim, vice president of Vertical Business at Samsung Electronics America.
NCR Silver Quantum is now available with the NCR Silver Android POS app and will soon be available with NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition Android POS app. NCR is offering the retail solution in a bundle including hardware peripherals, services and cloud-based software subscription offerings. Customers can also purchase it separately.
