NCR Unveils All-in-One Commerce Station and Partners with Samsung

The new NCR Silver Quantum commerce station features an integrated payment device with mobile wallet acceptance capability, customer display, loyalty scanner and Samsung Galaxy tablet

NCR Corporation, in collaboration with Samsung Electronics America, launched NCR Silver Quantum, an all-in-one point-of-sale (POS) commerce station featuring an integrated payment device with mobile wallet acceptance capability, customer display, loyalty scanner and Samsung Galaxy tablet. The commerce station provides merchants a sleek, efficient system to better manage customer POS transactions and back-office operations.

A 10.1-inch Android Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet serves as the employee interface, featuring fast, touchscreen operation for easy management. It is pre-loaded with the NCR Silver Android point-of-sale app, which delivers powerful functionality such as inventory management, marketing support and sales reporting once activated through NCR. Businesses can remotely set up and customise their device through Samsung Knox Configure, a cloud-based service and IT administration tool offered by Samsung.

Chamblee-based Ponko Chicken chose NCR Silver Quantum for its all-in-one functionality, intuitiveness and aesthetic. Co-owner Reiko Clark said the award-winning customer support also played a part in her selection.

The popular family-owned restaurant, which has more locations in the works, offers a unique Japanese and Western spin on a fried chicken tender. Ponko Chicken just re-opened for business after initially closing its first restaurant in 2008, and Clark plans to expand further.

NCR Silver Quantum is the first full Android-based solution in the NCR Silver lineup. In addition to incorporating a Samsung tablet and Knox Configure, the device includes an embedded RP457c mobile card reader provided by Ingenico Group, which enables the commerce station to accept a variety of payment methods, including magstripe, EMV chip and NFC/contactless transactions such as Samsung Pay.

NCR Silver Quantum offers market-leading battery life of up to 10 hours for merchants who want cordless operation, and has a small physical footprint, measuring less than 13 inches in width.

“Whether you run a franchise food and beverage business or a Mom and Pop boutique, NCR Silver Quantum is as sleek as it is sophisticated. The commerce station is durable, payment processor agnostic and provides chip and mobile wallet functionality. It, along with the entire NCR Silver solution set, offers everything businesses need to operate efficiently – today, and ahead.” said Chris Poelma, President and General Manager of NCR Silver.
