NCR introduces cloud-based POS system for independent retailers

DULUTH, Ga. — NCR announced Monday the introduction of a point-of-sale system that will allow independent retailers to manage transactions, track sales and inventory, process credit cards and market to customers on both touch-screen terminals and Apple mobile devices.

The system is a cloud-based platform that NCR said would give independent retailers a multichannel "sell anywhere" capability.

"This new solution makes big-box retail technology accessible for all and enables merchants to focus on their business, not on managing technology," NCR VP specialty retail Christian Nahas said. "We are passionate about helping small businesses run and scale their business, connect with customers across channels and sell anywhere. We are actively talking to all types of organizations who sell to small businesses, and the feedback has been overwhelming: They can't wait to take this product to their customers."

The platform is scheduled to become widely available in early spring.
