INTERSPORT Chooses NCR To Enhance Customer Experience At Its U.K. Stores

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, announced today that INTERSPORT U.K. has chosen NCR and its partner, SPC International, to provide new point-of-sale (POS) solutions for its stores. The versatile NCR RealPOS™ solution minimizes downtime, reduces training time and enhances the customer experience with fast, easy and convenient transactions.

NCR solutions will be installed at the first 50 INTERSPORT stores in May with subsequent deployments throughout the chain over the next 24 months. INTERSPORT also selected NCR receipt printers, cash drawers and barcode scanners as part of the integrated POS solution. The deployment also involved Retail IT, a specialist retail provider that installed and supports software used on the POS.

“We chose to work with NCR and SPC because of their experience working with retail organizations similar to our own. NCR is known for innovative technology that consumers want to experience when they shop,” said Tom Foley, general manager at INTERSPORT. “Introducing their ‘retail-hardened’ POS solution in our stores provides a significant return on investment and greatly enhances the customer experience by saving time at the point of transaction.”

NCR POS solutions are tested for radio signal immunity, as well as humidity, shock, vibration and resisting contamination. The resulting ‘retail-hardened’ NCR solutions provide the reliability that retailers expect and speed that today’s shopper demands.

“Consumers are driving the retail conversation, as they increasingly dictate where, when and how they want to shop. Retailers, such as INTERSPORT, are responding to these demands for a convenient and swift engagement at the point of transaction by providing the latest in-store technology,” said Ronen Levkovich, EMEA vice president, NCR Retail. “Our leadership in consumer transaction technologies for many years combined with the experience of leading partners, such as SPC, lets us offer solutions that meet the growing expectations of consumers while delivering significant benefits for retailers.”
