1Foot 2Foot Centre for Foot and Ankle Care selects NCR as technology partner

NCR Silver links reporting, inventory management across three diverse businesses under one system

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-Jul-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Looking for a multi-store solution to gain better insight across three diverse businesses, 1Foot 2Foot Centre for Foot and Ankle Care, a leading podiatry practice in Suffolk, Virginia, found its mobile point-of-sale (POS) partner in NCR Silver.

1Foot 2Foot Centre founder, Dr. Matthew C. Dairman, DPM MS, began his search for a technology partner when his previous system failed to scale across his companies. In addition to founding 1Foot 2Foot Centre, Dr. Dairman owns and operates a footwear retailer, the Shoe Fits, and Stems Nail Spa, which offers pedicures, manicures, massages, reflexology, and facials, along with a few other pampering treatments.

While Dr. Dairman and his team found their scalable solution in NCR Silver, they also found an easier way to do business.

“Initially, we wanted a mobile POS that we could carry with us, whether at the counter or around the store,” said Tina Rountree, Manager and CTS of the Shoe Fits. “However, we use NCR Silver for so much more than that, from inventory management to better customer engagement.”

With NCR Silver, management now has access to real-time inventory levels at all three businesses, rendering the company’s old manual processes obsolete. Dairman’s team recently deployed NCR Silver scanners as well, allowing his employees to automatically log inventory updates with a simple barcode scan.

1Foot 2Foot Centre, The Shoe Fits and Stems Nail Spa also use NCR Silver’s email marketing functionality to enable store management personnel to easily send personalized, opt-in email communication and coupons to customers. For management, it’s a simple way to generate repeat business and drive customer loyalty.

“With NCR Silver, small business owners find an ally to make day-to-day operations simpler and more efficient,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager, NCR Silver. “As Dr. Dairman and his team demonstrate, NCR Silver is so much more than a mobile POS; it’s a platform that allows all types of businesses to gain an overview into overall performance, whether you’re operating dozens of franchise locations across geographies or three foot-friendly businesses in Virginia.”

NCR becomes technology partner for BOKA Restaurant Group

Reliability of NCR’s solutions make them the obvious choice for BOKA Restaurant Group

DULUTH, Ga., 2017-May-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — When two restaurant industry connoisseurs came together to open their own restaurant in Chicago, they knew they needed a reliable technology partner to get them off the ground. NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in omni-channel solutions, was the obvious choice to help establish their restaurants with great restaurant technology solutions and excellent service. Since opening their first restaurant in 2003, BOKA Restaurant Group Owners, Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz have used the NCR Aloha platform-of-sale (POS) to streamline operations across their growing, top-ranking restaurants and expect to continue their partnership for years to come.

Before coming together to start BOKA, Boehm knew at a young age he was destined to be in the restaurant business. After dropping out of University of Illinois, he saved enough money as a server to open his first restaurant in 1992, while Katz was a finance guru with experience operating multiple bars and nightclubs. When the two decided to open a restaurant together they had the industry experience to know what they needed technologically to make them successful. The obvious choice was NCR’s advanced suite of restaurant technology solutions. BOKA Restaurant Group has been using NCR Aloha since its inception to provide quick service, excellent food and an exceptional dining experience for their customers.

As one of the nation’s top restaurant groups, BOKA places high importance on top-rated chefs and excellent restaurant design. The return on those investments is a massive flow of customer traffic, which is why they need to provide their employees with reliable technology that allows them to be efficient and precise.

“We wouldn’t use any technology other than NCR’s. We rationalize the investment based on the time saved alone. Providing a quick, efficient and customized experience for each of our guests is worth everything in this business,” said BOKA Restaurant Group Co-founder Rob Katz.

“The NCR Aloha software brings everything together so that food just flies out of the kitchen in harmony. Servers can communicate with the kitchen in a way that optimizes the dining experience for our guests, allowing us to provide great food and exceptional service,” said BOKA Restaurant Group Co-founder Kevin Boehm. “NCR is the best at what they do and we wouldn’t want to work with anyone else.”

“BOKA’s award-winning chefs and employees need reliable and efficient technology to effectively meet their needs, and they can count on NCR’s solutions to deliver,” said Don Zimmerman, general manager at NCR Hospitality. “We are proud to have been their partner from the start, providing the technological solutions that have allowed them to reach the level of success that they have today.”

BOKA Group now includes 13 restaurants in the Chicago, Ill. area and was a James Beard Foundation Award finalist for Outstanding Restauranteur in 2016. NCR is their exclusive partner for restaurant solutions.

Bolla Oil selects NCR as technology partner to support its goal in providing luxurious in-store customer experience

DULUTH, Ga., 2016-Aug-04 — /EPR Retail News/ — Intent on providing a luxurious c-store experience featuring gourmet food and beverages, executives at Bolla Oil Corp. realized they needed a technology provider to support this goal by delivering a smooth customer experience. Executives quickly found NCR was the right technology partner for the job.

Bolla operates convenience stores across the New York City, Long Island and New Jersey markets. New Bolla locations will feature elegant, full service coffee bars, hand-crafted custom sandwiches and spacious dining to create an upscale dining experience. Bolla will use NCR’s integrated POS solution to manage forecourt and in-store transactions and provide centralized system management. Retail Data Systems (RDS), a reseller of NCR hardware and software and a long-time partner of Bolla facilitated the process to find a POS solution that would best serve the needs of their growing brand.

“Technology plays a critical role in helping us deliver the luxurious, overall experience our customers deserve,” said Harry Singh, Bolla Oil president and CEO. “NCR’s solutions allow us to observe forecourt and in-store performance in real-time and make faster analyses on key areas from fuel pricing to merchandise performance.”

To create an easier transition from the forecourt to the dining area, Bolla will rely on NCR’s kitchen production and customer self-service software. Customers will receive the benefit of controlling their order and transaction as they do at the pump, while the system will suggest upsells based on previous purchase behavior.

“By integrating all fuel and food options into a single NCR solution, Bolla can provide a top-level experience not only from the forecourt to inside the store, but also from location to the next. This will help the team create brand consistency across their footprint, one customers will look forward to returning to time and time again,” said Michael Bayer, president, NCR Retail.

The first Bolla Oil gourmet experience store opened in 2007 in Brooklyn, NY. Bolla now has 16 Gourmet delis and plans to open 6 more sites in 2016 including 4 delis.
