NCR FastLane Moves into Other Sections of the Store

Order & Pay lets retailers migrate additional transactions to self-service

DAYTON, Ohio -- Retailers who have deployed NCR Corp.'s FastLane self-checkout can extend its familiar convenience to shoppers in other parts of the store, the company said.

NCR FastLane Order & Pay is designed to address a variety of self-service opportunities within a store, such as a deli or bakery section or an in-store foodservice operation. In addition to food stores, it can also be deployed in general merchandise, convenience or other retail formats, said the Dayton, Ohio-based firm.

"With this solution, retailers can [image-nocss] leverage their NCR FastLane investment by migrating additional transactions to self-service," said Mike Webster, NCR vice president for self-service solutions. "Because their customers will already be familiar with NCR self-checkout, they can use NCR FastLane Order & Pay with ease and confidence."

NCR FastLane Order & Pay sports a compact footprint and features the familiar NCR FastLane interface, but without the scan and bag functionality. The touchscreen presents shoppers with a preset menu appropriate to its location in the store.

After entering their choices, consumers can use NCR FastLane Order & Pay to pay with cash, debit card or credit card and receive a receipt that they hand to a store associate before picking up their purchase. Shoppers can also use their store loyalty card to earn points or take advantage of special offers. In addition, retailers can offer shoppers the option to pay at the front of the store, using either self-checkout or assisted-service checkout.

And NCR has partnered with ViVOtech to introduce a suite of contactless payment terminals for the point of sale (POS). These solutions enable mobile and contactless payment at a variety of customer touchpoints, including retail checkout, restaurant drive-thru and the diner's table.

The NCR RealPOS contactless payment products are compatible with a variety of other NCR solutions including NCR RealPOS workstations, NCR EasyPoint kiosks and NCR FastLane self-checkouts, in addition to NCR and partner POS software applications.

NCR is a global technology company offering assisted- and self-service solutions and support services for retail, financial, travel, healthcare, hospitality, gaming and public-sector organizations.
