Major Marine Tours to use NCR Silver, the tablet point-of-sale (POS) system from NCR Small Business

Alaska tour company uses mobile POS system in two offices and on seven vessels

DULUTH, Ga., 2016-Jun-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Guests on Major Marine Tours’ wildlife cruises now have an easy way to pay for onboard snacks and drinks thanks to NCR Silver, the tablet point-of-sale (POS) system from NCR Small Business.

Each day, employees of the Alaska-based company use NCR Silver to efficiently process hundreds of concession sales during its glacier and wildlife tours.

Operating in remote areas like Prince William Sound and the Kenai Peninsula, the Major Marine Tour team stays up and running using NCR Silver, processing payments even when offline. Before adopting NCR Silver, the company manually processed payments using credit card slides, which caused long lines at check out and ultimately decreased sales.

Additionally, NCR Silver’s 24/7 US-based customer care team provides the company’s operators, in the offices and on the boats, with peace of mind.

“I’m really thankful for the availability of customer support,” said Adam Gottschalk, office manager at Major Marine Tours. “Operating a business in the Alaska time zone can be tricky, and it’s great knowing we can receive help whenever we need it.”

The solution is ideal for small businesses that don’t always have a reliable internet connection.

“NCR Silver makes businesses run better, even in the most isolated locations,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager, NCR Small Business. “Through our functional, easy-to-use platform, we support organizations of varying sizes, from mom and pop locations to multi-unit franchises.”

NCR Silver mobile POS runs in the cloud, uses consumer-friendly technology, works on Apple® devices running the latest iOS, and offers a POS solution catered to franchises as well.

NCR Small Business announced significant software upgrade for its tablet point-of-sale (POS) system – NCR Silve

Increased inventory capacity and BOGO capabilities now available

DULUTH, Ga., 2015-10-15 — /EPR Retail News/ — NCR Small Business today announced a significant software upgrade for NCR Silver, its tablet point-of-sale (POS) system.

Version 3.8 of NCR Silver offers small businesses and franchises the opportunity to initiate buy-one-get-one (BOGO) promotions, communicate across locations in real-time and support 50,000 items on the NCR Silver RegisterTM platform.

Additionally, version 3.8 of NCR Silver includes activity snapshot comparisons with more granular data analysis and auto display modifiers that prompt cashiers to ask customers for information related to order preferences.

NCR Silver customer Debbie Bertsch, executive director of the Humane Society Thrift Store of Forsyth County, which donates profits to the local animal shelter just north of Atlanta, is an early adopter of version 3.8’s capabilities. In particular, she finds value in comparing sales data in a more granular way.

“As a nonprofit, we look for ways to control our expenditures in any way we can,” Bertsch said. “NCR Silver’s ability to quickly help us compare sales from the time now to the same time on another day is a powerful feature. This will help us plan our staffing – and potentially even when we open and close – with precise data.”

Product upgrades further NCR Small Business’ strategy to empower small businesses and franchises to improve efficiency in order to keep up with customer demand and compete at the same level as their larger competitors.

“Customer feedback helped our development team better understand the capabilities that would have the most impact among the small business and franchise community,” said Chris Poelma, NCR Small Business president and general manager. “Moving forward, we will plan to continually advance NCR Silver in a way that helps small businesses use technology to improve the customer experience and grow operations.”
