The recent public health crisis has highlighted the need to minimize the risk of virus transmission through common touchpoints. So it’s critical to keep shared surfaces (such as touch screens and self-checkouts) regularly sanitized to prevent the spread of virus and offer greater peace of mind for consumers.
At the beginning of the pandemic, NCR published our Retail Hardware Cleaning Guide with easy-to-remember do’s and don’ts to help retailers reduce risk. And, now, we’ve taken our commitment to your business, your customers’ safety and innovation even further:
NCR has launched a new anti-microbial coating that can be applied to in-situ hardware, including touchscreens, cash drawers, scanners, receipt printers, pin pads, self-checkouts, and privacy shields. We can apply it to NCR or other manufacturers' devices.
This anti-microbial coating will:
Make it difficult for microbes (virus, bacteria, fungi) to live on coated surfaces, limiting the possibility of transmission through touch
Improve the effectiveness of standard cleaning and disinfecting procedures
Create a durable, lasting bond with treated surfaces that will persist with regular use and between standard cleaning procedures
Make surfaces more resilient to scratches and dirt buildup over time.
