DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Aug-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, and Performance Food Group Company (PFG) (NYSE: PFGC), a leading food service supplier, have entered into a strategic referral relationship to bring NCR Silver™, the cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) solution, to more restaurants throughout the United States.
PFG will introduce NCR Silver to its 36 Performance Foodservice distribution centers nationwide, which deliver food and food-related products to regional and national restaurant operators. Restaurateurs will be able to purchase NCR Silver software and hardware under a subscription service model.
With NCR Silver, Performance Foodservice customers will be able to check out customers quickly and gain access to sales, inventory and employee scheduling reports. They will also be able to offer customers targeted loyalty discounts and promotions. In addition, NCR Silver’s award-winning customer service team provides live, 24/7 U.S.-based support.
Utilizing cloud and tablet technology, NCR Silver will give restaurateurs the freedom to take mobile payments in their restaurant and be able to easily sell their products on the go.
“NCR’s deep-seated history in the restaurant space and the solution’s ability to drive efficiency makes this an ideal partnership for us,” said Fred Sanelli, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales Development at Performance Foodservice. “With NCR Silver, our customers will be better equipped to grow their businesses and maintain profitability.”
Solutions available through the relationship include NCR Silver core and NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition that are enabled on iOS and Android platforms.
PFG will soon expand its relationship with NCR by integrating its order management system with NCR Silver to further streamline restaurant operations. The planned integration will enable restaurant operators to not only ring up orders, manage inventory and employee schedules, but also order from PFG’s vast inventory of food and food-related products – all from one platform.
“The PFG team provides restaurant operators with dedicated service and high-quality products, and we’re confident NCR Silver will complement these efforts,” said Colin Armbruster, Director of Global Channel, NCR Silver. “Working with PFG supports our strategy to put intuitive and comprehensive technology in the hands of independent restaurateurs who need all-in-one technology solutions so they can focus on their customers.”
