NCR, a US-based omni-channel solutions provider, has decided to relocate its current Hyderabad R&D centre to a new location at Raheja Mindspace in Hyderabad.
Expected to become operational by early 2017, the new facility will be one of the global centres of excellence for NCR.
As part of its transformational journey towards leadership in the omni-channel evolution, NCR investment in a large R&D facility will speed up the development of omni-channel software, channel transformation and digital enablement solutions.
Currently NCR’s Hyderabad R&D facility houses over 800 professionals, working to develop software for the financial, retail, and hospitality industries. The centre was set up in 2004 with 50 engineers.
NCR’s Hyderabad R&D centre is already developing and supporting software and services such as Interactive Teller ATM, EMV contactless ATM cash withdrawals, mobile cash withdrawals, mobile cheque deposits, and EMV-enabled multi-industry payments systems, among others.
NCR senior vice president and chief technology officer for software solutions Eli Rosner said: “As we continue to build out our innovative, omni-channel architecture, the Hyderabad facility will play an important role as a strategic global centre for software development.”
NCR India head of R&D centre Ashok Nallam said: “Multi-channel commerce has quickly evolved into omni-channel commerce as businesses strive to develop seamless, transactional experiences to meet the demands of tech-savvy consumers.
“Our new R&D centre will continue to invest in talent to create a robust innovation pipeline to change the way consumers connect, interact and transact with businesses.”
