DULUTH, GA – April 10, 2014 – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), announced today it is a recipient of the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) "Top 10" Award, as one of Georgia's 10 most innovative technology companies. TAG is the state's leading association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia's technology industry.
The “Top 10” most innovative technology companies are chosen from among TAG’s "Top 40" 2014 list and were chosen based on a number of criteria, including: degree of innovation; scope and financial impact of innovation; likelihood of success; and promotion of Georgia's innovative efforts nationally and internationally.
“The Top 10 Awards are given to an elite group of companies whose products and solutions are not only changing their respective industries, they are also putting Georgia on the map as a state where technology innovation can thrive,” said Tino Mantella, president and CEO of TAG. “We applaud each of these companies for standing out as leaders in Georgia’s technology community and being showcased as such at our annual Georgia Technology Summit.”
NCR was recognized for its innovation in designing and developing its innovative NCR Mobile Pay solution in the state of Georgia. NCR Mobile Pay enables consumers to take action instead of waiting. Restaurant patrons can easily review an order, add to it, tip and pay, and take a survey – all directly from their smartphone. NCR Mobile Pay transforms the guest experience while also improving order accuracy, increasing speed of service and reducing the potential of credit card fraud for restaurant operators.
