Tully’s Coffee selects NCR point-of-sale technology

New cashier workstations will help specialty coffee retailer enhance customer experience and improve operational efficiency at 70 locations  

DULUTH, Ga. – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) today announced that Tully’s Coffee, a leading specialty coffee retailer, has selected the NCR RealPOS™ 70XRT point-of-sale (POS) workstations. This investment is part of Tully’s enterprise technology initiative to improve the checkout experience for customers and gain greater business insight into its store operations. NCR will also provide depot repair services for Tully’s through its Services organization.

Through this POS upgrade, Tully’s can decrease customer wait times through faster transaction speeds and an easy-to-use touchscreen cashier interface. The POS workstations will integrate with Tully’s Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP and LS Retail POSsoftware, providing the retailer greater insight into its day-to-day store operations.

Tully’s chose NCR after a comprehensive competitive review, selecting the RealPOS 70 XRT workstation due to its high serviceability, lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) and component-based design, which facilitates faster and simpler upgrades and service.

“The high degree of reliability, performance and serviceability of the NCR workstation, combined with its depot maintenance offering, provided the best value for our investment,” said Tully’s Chief Financial Officer, Cathy Campbell. “This implementation is a key milestone in our ongoing technology initiative to enhance the experience for our customers and drive operational excellence.”

“NCR looks forward to helping Tully’s advance its business goals through the superior value, innovative component-based design and lower total cost of ownership of our solution,” added Bill Campbell, vice president, Retail and Hospitality, NCR. “We are delighted to be part of Tully’s initiative to drive a superior customer experience.”

Suited for both front-counter and drive-thru service, the NCR RealPOS 70 XRT reduces energy costs up to 50 percent over previous-generation systems, thanks to energy efficient Intel processors and a high-efficiency power supply. The workstation includes a reliable and bright touchscreen interface with full-tilt capability to enhance cashier ease of use. An integrated biometric fingerprint reader is available for secure and fast cashier log-in, manager overrides and other POS applications. NCR offers comprehensive depot services including standard return and repair as well as advanced exchange. This provides a flexible and cost effective maintenance alternative to on-site maintenance and offers a single point of accountability for repair, shipment and inventory management.
