NEW DELHI, India, 2018-Oct-9 — /EPR Retail News/ — Millennium Soft-tech India today unveiled yet another powerful android smart POS – MagicBox Plus – device with advanced features suitable for small and medium retail businesses who hitherto have been struggling to match with big businesses in providing best-in-class customer experience and enhanced store operations.

Millennium, which pioneered in providing integrated POS technology for Indian retailers, earlier in July has introduced hand-held Smart Mobile POS device for small shop owners to help them transact both indoor and outdoor seamlessly while managing inventory, payment, reports and analysis and customer engagement activities.

“Our new offering, MagicBox Plus android desktop POS is ideal for retailers who prefer smaller, sleeker, cheaper and yet powerful POS solution to drive business operations seamlessly,” says Bhaskar Venkatraman, CEO and Director of Millennium Soft-tech India.

The compact desktop POS device comes with industry-best retail software ideal for general and food and beverage retail applications which include grocery shops, stationery sellers, departmental stores, ice-cream bars, bakery and sweet shops,  food courts, fine dining, takeaway, bar, to name a few.

“MagicBox Plus, while automating several manual functions such as inventory, sales, credits and billing, helps store owners generate valuable reports and analysis for better planning, CRM and loyalty program, GST billing, order taking, mobile banking and staff management,” says Bhaskar, who also heads India’s premier e-commerce portal Justransact.com exclusively for POS products and technology.

MagicBox Plus Android (6.0) device comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon615, octa-core processor, 8GB memory and 1 GB RAM, which can host powerful retail POS software. Despite small in size, MagicBox Plus offers integrated 2-inch (58mm) printe and NFC (optional) technology along with 11.6-inch HD adjustable touch display and elegant but rugged design to customers. Bluetooth (4.0) and Wi-Fi are the other highlights of this POS device.

The pre-loaded software supports critical features such as anytime-anywhere billing, inventory management, spot offers/discounts, loyalty program, and many more. Through this device, retailers can access their store remotely in real time using cloud technology which saves critical data and keeps it secured from potential loss, pilferage or malware intrusion.

“Retailers get cost-effective, integrated, compact and a complete POS solution with cloud application facility.  With this (device), retailers can save a huge overhead cost and considerable retail space while offering customers sophisticated business environment,” concludes Bhaskar.

NCR Corporation launches its flexible POS solution StorePro in Europe, Middle East and Africa

With StorePro, NCR offers a highly flexible POS solution for independent retailers in the food and drug industry through channel partners

DULUTH, Ga., 2016-Apr-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, announced today the launch of NCR StorePro in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). StorePro, NCR’s newest point-of-sale (POS) solution, is aimed specifically at the independent retailer with less than 250 stores and will integrate seamlessly with NCR Retail ONE, enabling retailers to transition to an omni-commerce strategy at their own pace while protecting existing investments. Furthermore, StorePro is the first retail POS software solution that is aimed exclusively for distribution through channel partners in Europe.

According to a recent survey by EHI, the scientific institute for the German retail industry, 47 percent of retailers in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) are planning POS software decisions in the next two years. These are mainly driven by growing omni-channel needs that call for more flexible POS solutions. NCR addresses this need with its NCR StorePro, a highly flexible solution that can be configured quickly and easily to the specific needs of a retailer and their individual stores thanks to thousands of parameters, reducing implementation time and costs. The connectivity with NCR Retail ONE supports multiple NCR and third-party applications and opens up an omni-commerce experience not typically available to this market.

NCR Retail ONE is an innovative commerce hub that unites an open ecosystem of retail applications and data with an omni-channel software platform to help provide frictionless shopping experiences for consumers. NCR Retail ONE allows retailers to mix and match innovative applications from NCR, its partners and third parties. With this new strategy, NCR is also opening up its distribution channels. NCR StorePro is the first retail POS software that will be available to retailers only through channel partners in EMEA, as NCR is expanding its network of software channel partners throughout the region.

“The launch of NCR StorePro in EMEA is proof of our continued investment and commitment to the small and medium retailer and to our partners that serve this growing segment,” said Wolfgang Jonasson, vice president EMEA at NCR Retail Solutions. “Because StorePro is purpose-built for those store chains in grocery and convenience with an average of 100-250 stores, we are able to offer a solution that delivers the robustness they want with the scalability they need to better compete in today’s market. We are actively looking for new channel partners that want to grow with us in this market segment.”

NCR StorePro is a proven solution that has been installed in 25,000 sites around the world. It is a robust and highly functional solution that leverages the latest retail technologies and comes with a refreshed user interface that speeds up training time. Daily backups and automated data synchronization ensure quick recovery, while a line independent architecture ensures full capability even while offline to the server. The use of industry standards such as Windows and SQL make it a powerful solution that requires minimal internal IT support while keeping the store up and running 100 percent of the time.
