NCR Cimplebox

DULUTH, Ga. -- NCR Corp., a global leader in consumer transaction technologies, has completed the acquisition of CimpleBox Inc., a provider of simplified software-as-a-service (SaaS)-based backoffice software to restaurant operators and retailers.

The companies did not disclose financial terms of the transaction.

Already integrated with the NCR Silver mobile point-of-sale (POS) solution portfolio, the CimpleBox software suite helps businesses reduce the amount of time spent on manual processes, consolidates data and scheduling across multiple sites and gives management visibility into the business and day-to-day operations.

“Our goal is to bring technology innovation and simplicity to small businesses to help them grow and be successful,” said Paul Langenbahn, president of NCR’s Hospitality Division. “This acquisition supports NCR’s strategy to provide businesses with all shapes and sizes with the solutions they need to modernize their operations.”

John Eucalitto, president of Wayback Burgers, said the integrated solution is ideal for franchise restaurants, like his.

“We prefer to spend our time engaging customers and not managing complex technology,” he said. “By further expanding its offering through CimpleBox, NCR provides us with the technology we need to improve our customers’ in-store experience and help our managers and employees streamline routine backoffice tasks in a user-friendly manner.”

CimpleBox is based in Canoga Park, Calif.

With its software, hardware and portfolio of services, Duluth, Ga.-based NCR enables more than 550 million transactions daily across retail, financial, travel, hospitality, telecom and technology and small business.
