Point of sale (POS) solution to be deployed at school lunch lines in 42 states over five years

DULUTH, Georgia – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) today announced it has been selected by School-Link Technologies (SL-Tech), a technology solutions provider to schools in the United States, to deliver and support NCR RealPOS 25 touchscreen point-of-sale terminals for kindergarten through 12th grade school lunch lines.

NCR was selected to replace SL-Tech’s current POS provider because of superior quality, contemporary touchscreen technology and NCR’s Advanced Exchange Support, which minimizes downtime by stocking and providing replacement units whenever one is not working properly.

“NCR is a clear choice for us moving forward given the company’s point of sale leadership and hospitality expertise,” said Terry Roberts, Director of School Solutions for School-Link.  “Deploying the most reliable and technologically advanced point of sale solution supports our focus on improving operational efficiency in our nation’s schools.”

Deployment of the new POS systems, which are designed to deliver a low total cost of ownership and provide years of dependable operation, will begin in May, 2012.

“As are most publicly funded institutions, schools are looking more and more to technology to optimize financial and human  resources, “ said Stan Ratcliffe, president, NCR Government Systems. “As a leading provider of assisted and self-service technologies to the retail, financial, travel and other industries, NCR applies best practices to our partners in federal, state and municipal organizations to improve service while lowering costs.”
