NCR to highlight Independent Tech at Unified Grocers Expo
Technology solutions that increase customer service, customer loyalty and store efficiency are increasingly within reach of independent grocery stores seeking to compete with larger chains, a point NCR Corporation is showcasing at the Unified Grocers 90th Annual Expo June 20 and 21 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
“Independent grocers realize that technology can dramatically improve customer service, store management and the overall bottom line; these grocers also realize that shoppers are seeking stores that offer more efficient, converged retail solutions and experiences,” said Tammy Sterling, NCR marketing director, retail channels. “At this expo, we’ll be showing owners and managers the value NCR solutions provide and how, through our channel partners and leasing programs, more of this technology is now affordably available.”
NCR’s grocery software suite, includes its Advanced Checkout Solution (ACS) for independent retailers, Advanced Back Office (ABO) and Advanced Marketing Solution (AMS), all of which will be featured at NCR’s booths, 257 and 258, at the expo.
NCR ACS for independent retailers is a feature-rich point of sale application designed specifically for the independent grocer. ABO is a full-function back-office software application that works with ACS to help independent grocers quickly maximize productivity, manage inventory and mange prices.
NCR AMS will soon be debuting as a software in a service (SaaS) model, and the first integration will be with NCR ACS for independent grocers. AMS delivers on NCR’s c-tailing vision by coordinating consistent, enterprise-level promotions executed in real-time across the retailer’s available channels. Using AMS, retailers can create targeted, multichannel offers to drive customer loyalty and respond to competitive pressures.
In addition to the ACS integrated solutions, NCR will be showcasing a variety of retail hardware and peripherals at the show, including SelfServ Checkout; the RealPOS 82XRT, NCR’s highest performance POS terminal to date; the RealPOS DynaKey operator display; and NCR printers, cash drawers, scanners and touch screens.
