Grocery chain Big Y one-of-the-first to deploy XR8 point-of-sale terminals, bringing new configurations and performance options for checkout environments
NEW YORK, 2016-Jan-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today introduced at the NRF Big Show in New York two new point-of-sale (POS) models that bring more configuration options and choice for retailers, while retaining the reliability and performance expected from NCR RealPOS™ solutions.
“Our new hardware solutions help round out our RealPOS family, giving retailers a wide variety of choices in POS configurations and designs that blend seamlessly into any retail environment,” said Gary Dalton, product director, NCR Retail Solutions.
NCR RealPOS XR8
The NCR RealPOS XR8 is powered by the latest 6th-generation Intel® Core™ processor technology in one of the smallest form factors in its class. The XR8’s compact design will fit into nearly any retail environment, including under a counter, on top of a counter or with a peripheral integration tray. It features a unique new design that allows front or rear peripheral connectivity, which simplifies cabling and service accessibility. In addition, all input/output is behind a locking door to help secure connections. NCR’s image recovery button lets store associates easily restore a corrupt POS system within seconds.
Supermarket chain Big Y, which serves customers in southern New England, will be one of the first grocers to deploy the new RealPOS XR8. Big Y will replace non-NCR POS units at more than 1,000 lanes in 61 stores with the new terminals.
“Big Y recognizes the necessity of staying at the forefront in technology and for that reason we selected NCR’s RealPOS XR8 Point of Sale solution,” said Michael Tami, VP of Information Resources and Technologies for Big Y Foods. “The XR8 hit all our marks on performance and will allow us to expand as technology solutions change. Another important factor was the innovative design that will save us time in the field with serviceability.”
NCR RealPOS XR5
The NCR RealPOS XR5 is an energy-efficient, fan-less, multi-touch POS terminal packaged in the NCR X-Series all-in-one design. With a sleek design that can be deployed on a countertop stand, a floor-standing pedestal or hanging on a wall or pole, the XR5 provides flexible installation options to meet the needs of many different store formats.
The XR5 is powered by the latest Quad core Intel® Celeron® system-on-chip (SoC) technology to give retailers high energy efficiency, lower operating temperature, and uncompromised performance. On-board “odometers” proactively capture vital health and usage statistics to prevent downtime. The projective capacitive display provides multi-touch and gesture support to boost associate productivity and to let them interact in a way that is familiar to them.
