NCR is a truly global company with offices in 180 countries all over the world, so our employees speak many different languages and dialects. But each of us shares a lingua franca: Innovation.
This common vocabulary and approach is the foundation for all we do. From the beginning, NCR has been rooted in a culture of innovation. The list is quite long, but notable examples are:
Our approach to innovation is Think big, start small, fail fast and scale fast. As a result, NCR holds more than 2600 patents worldwide (with more than 1450 US patents), and more than 1700 pending patent applications worldwide.
But it’s not just hardware and software ─ even our support services offer innovative solutions by doing continuous process improvement and using dashboard visualization layers of real-time traffic, weather, police activity, and customer engineer and parts locations.
Finally, innovation extends to our highly engaged culture. In 2013, NCR began an ambassador program to give passionate employees an opportunity to share our story and create exceptional experiences in the workplace and in the community. Since then, the 300 global NCR Ambassadors have hosted hundreds of internal events, like 130-year anniversary celebrations held last year. They continue to lead thousands of employees in partnering with the community to feed the hungry, revitalize neighborhoods, fundraise for cancer research, and so much more!
At NCR, innovation is more than a buzzword. It is our native language.
