NCR Software Platform Strategy Resonating in Marketplace

NCR’s Unified Commerce Platform Gaining Acceptance

DULUTH, Ga. – December 20, 2016 NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in omni-channel technologies, continues to expand its focus on software platforms, specifically for the retail and hospitality industries.

NCR launched Retail ONE in June 2015 as an open application ecosystem to address one of the biggest challenges that retailers are facing when trying to meet customer expectations on how and when to interact with them. Retail ONE is a commerce hub that can easily incorporate and amplify solutions from multiple technology venders, making it the foundation of omni-channel connected experience. NCR continues to gain momentum for its strategy by growing the ecosystem with new applications and technology partners. NCR Retail ONE has many highly recognized and popular vendors working to integrate with its solution.

According to IDC, NCR continues to be a leader in the retail point-of-sale (POS) technology market, and with Retail ONE, the company has introduced a platform for commerce that can be the commerce hub for sales, payments, fulfillment, and marketing. NCR is uniquely positioned to serve a long list of retail segments, including food, drug and mass merchandise, department and specialty retail, and petroleum and convenience retail.

“IDC’s findings are encouraging and validate our Omni-Channel Platform strategy for the industries we serve,” said Mark Benjamin, President and COO at NCR. “The commerce hub configuration of Retail ONE recognizes the reality of retail economics: retailers that have made significant investments in technology prefer to leverage their existing investments while adding new technologies to help them transform.”

NCR is leading transformational change across the entire retail ecosystem through its omni-channel software platform, channel integration & transformation and digital enablement.

“NCR has a strong omni-channel portfolio, and the company understands what retailers need to drive business growth into the future,” said Leslie Hand, Vice President for IDC Retail Insights. “Our advice to retailers considering solutions is leave preconceived notions behind in all hardware and software evaluations and instead make decisions based on needs and technology partners' ability to sustain business trajectory.”
