NCR Wins Four GOOD DESIGN™ Awards
We’re NCR, and we’ve been shaping the future since 1884. A global tech company changing how people everywhere bank, shop, eat, and travel. Guess you could say we were a tech company before there were tech companies.
What really makes NCR different from other companies? Our shared values. We are leading how the world connects, interacts, and transacts with business because we do what we say we'll do and stay accountable. As a united team, we consider a wide range of perspectives in bringing courageous new ideas to the real world, making sure that everything we create benefits everyone we work with. Just as important as what we do, it's what we don't do that tells our story. We never stop asking why, never stop improving, and never back down when facing tough challenges – even if that means changing.
Our shared values are clearly articulated and explained below, but in the end, it's our actions—not our words—that truly set NCR apart.
We are highly ethical, genuine and trustworthy. We keep our promises, and we always hold ourselves accountable for our work and how it's achieved.
We are respectful collaborators and communicators, treating others in ways we want to be treated. We recognize everyone's contributions and understand we achieve better results as a diverse global team than as individuals.
We are committed to driving exceptional business results and taking personal pride in everything we do. We have an enthusiasm for learning and growth, and we simply want to be and do our best by becoming better individuals each day.
We are constantly curious and creative. We embrace the power of new ideas and unique perspectives, and we courageously put them to work in the real world every day.
We genuinely care about the success of our internal and external customers. We partner with them to understand their businesses and develop solutions that deliver the highest levels of quality, service and value.
We have the courage to live our values every day; to do what's right, even when it's not what's easiest or most popular; and to speak up and be heard. We overcome our fears and embrace change.
For more than 130 years, NCR has helped companies better connect, interact and transact with customers. Here’s how we did it.
The electronic cash register.
Automated credit systems.
A sales training school (which attracted top talent, like IBM's founder).
Demand generation ... that changed the art of sales itself.
But was that enough for founder John H Patterson and the National Cash Register Company?
Of course not.
LCD screens? Check.
Magnetic strips on the back of your credit card? Check.
Microencapsulation, leading to the invention of time-release medication (like Aspirin and even cancer treatments)? Check.
Oh, and how about thermal printing, and the world's first fully transistorized business computer? Check and check.
NCR keeps checking off boxes for world's firsts. But... why stop there?
Sometimes when you've turned 100, you take on a new identity. NCR became part of AT&T, teamed up with Teradata, and became GIS, the world's most powerful database.
And you know open systems architecture? NCR brought it to the computer market in 1982.
Naturally, reinvention didn't stop there ...
This is when things really start to come together (literally).
NCR expands swiftly beyond hardware and goes global. Global? Yeah, like 30,000 employees in 180 countries, global. (There’s only 196 countries total. Just sayin’.)
We’re talking software, store automation, signature capture, and…behold…self-service check-out!
NCR keeps creating the future by inventing it.
Welcome to the world, omni-channel! A world where physical and digital boundaries begin to blur for the ultimate customer experience.
We’re talking mobile apps for anytime, anywhere interactions between people and their favorite brands. Plus mobile barcode scanning, beacon technologies and ATMs that have live teller access even after the bank branch has closed.
Enabling 700 million transactions a day—across industries—is helping us rethink big data. And our move to Midtown Atlanta in 2018 gives us more ways to help you help others.
We’re NCR. We’ve been around 130+ years. But we’re just getting started.
Everyday Made Easier
We’re helping you do more of what you love…every day.
In our opinion, if these awards didn’t benefit your business, they don’t count.
