NCR Corporation, a US-based omni-channel solutions provider, has partnered with Samsung Electronics America to launch an all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) commerce station, dubbed NCR Silver Quantum.
The solution is useful for small- to medium-sized businesses and accepts wide range of payment methods including magstripe, EMV chip and NFC/contactless transactions.
The integrated payment device features an integrated payment device with mobile wallet acceptance capability, customer display, loyalty scanner and Samsung Galaxy tablet.
The 10.1-inch Android Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet serves as the employee interface, featuring fast, touchscreen operation for easy management.
The device will be pre-installed with the NCR Silver Android point-of-sale app and will deliver functionalities such as inventory management, marketing support and sales reporting after activation.
Businesses can customise NCR Silver Quantum device through the cloud-based service and IT administration tool offered by Samsung, Samsung Knox Configure.
NCR Silver president and general manager Chris Poel said: “Whether you run a franchise food and beverage business or a Mom and Pop boutique, NCR Silver Quantum is as sleek as it is sophisticated. The commerce station is durable, payment processor agnostic and provides chip and mobile wallet functionality. It, along with the entire NCR Silver solution set, offers everything businesses need to operate efficiently – today, and ahead.”
Samsung Electronics America vice president of vertical business Ted Brodheim added: “The retail industry is undergoing a rapid digital transformation, and the point-of-sale process is one of the most critical areas to address. 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.”
NCR Silver Quantum is currently available with the NCR Silver Android POS app and will soon be offered with NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition Android POS app.
