NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, has announced an upgrade for NCR Silver, its tablet point-of-sale (POS) system.
NCR Silver’s latest version lets small businesses and franchises easily integrate their systems with scale hardware — making transactions quicker and easier for stores and restaurants where customers weigh their goods at the POS, a company release said.
In addition to scale integration that communicates weight directly to the POS system, version 3.10 of NCR Silver offers advanced solutions for improving customer service and loyalty. It allows business owners to capture data, including product preferences, birthdays and addresses, directly from the customer during the transaction.
“This upgrade includes features that our customers need to operate smoothly,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager, NCR Small Business, who further stated, “With each software upgrade, we aim to provide functionality to further address the needs of small business and franchise owners as they interact with consumers and work to grow their businesses.”
Consumers now can add tips during checkout from a prompt button, encouraging them to tip, and increasing an employees’ likelihood for bringing home extra cash.
Further, to decrease the potential of fraud and internal theft, business owners using NCR Silver RegisterTM, an all-in-one Android-based POS system, can assign different cash drawers to each employee. This can help business owners identify the source of any shortages.
