DULUTH, Ga., 2016-Aug-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation, a global leader in omni-channel solutions, today (August 29, 2016) announced that Coles Supermarkets, one of Australia’s largest supermarket retailers, has chosen to improve customer checkout experiences and operational efficiency by adding NCR Real POS XR8 as its future POS terminals. Coles plans to upgrade more than 4,000 POS units in the next financial year.
NCR Real POS XR8 is powered by the latest 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor in one of the smallest form factors in its class. The XR8’s compact design allows it to fit into nearly any retail environment; while its unique new design enables front or rear peripheral configuration, which simplifies cabling and service accessibility.
In addition, all input/output connections are behind a locking door for added security. NCR’s image recovery button lets store associates easily restore a corrupt POS system within seconds.
“As our long established partner, NCR provides us with innovative solutions that allow us to deliver the best retail experience to our customers,” said Nick Delija, IT GM at Coles. “NCR’s latest innovations, such as the NCR RealPOS XR8, make serving customers faster and easier while allowing us to use a single platform for conventional and assisted checkouts.”
NCR is supporting Coles in its store checkout operations with a range of innovative hardware and software solutions. Coles operates more than 780 stores and processes more than 20 million customer transactions each week. Last year, Coles named NCR as the winner of the Coles Supplier of the Year Award for Outstanding Services.
“Our collaboration with Coles has grown from strength to strength with every new addition of NCR’s solutions to improve its customer services every day,” said Avi Shaul, director for Sales, NCR Retail, “The new Real POS XR8 solution helps round out our RealPOS family, offering Coles an added choice of POS configurations and designs to deliver exceptional checkout experiences.”
