NCR to Help Convenience Stores Integrate Apple Pay
Will facilitate more secure digital payments, enhanced digital marketing capabilities
DULUTH, Ga. -- NCR Corp., a global leader in consumer transaction technologies, said it will help enable its customers' ability to integrate and accept Apple Pay, the highly secure form of payment, through brick-and-mortar channels using traditional point-of-sale (POS), and through mobile commerce channels using mobile device apps, and, perhaps most importantly, the intersections between those POS systems and mobile apps.
Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple's announcement of Apple Pay is important to the industries NCR serves, including the gas station and convenience store channels, as it drives forward mobile payment technology, and with it, the ability for more secure digital payments and enhanced digital marketing capabilities.
"With Apple Pay, Apple has transformed mobile payments and will have an impact on the industry like never before. We are thrilled to be working closely with Apple to help retail and hospitality customers integrate this new method of payment into their operations, providing an easy, safe and secure way to pay with a single touch," said Jimmy Fortuna, vice president of product development and chief technology officer for NCR Hospitality. "We believe Apple Pay and Apple's extraordinary reach among consumers will further enable NCR to create business-transforming innovations for our customers."
