NCR hardware solution helps reduce the time in checkout lines by more than half.
NCR announced Formosa Supermarket in Brazil has selected NCR hardware solution to expedite service in its POS.
NCR technology helps the supermarket improve customer experience and create greater efficiency in their stores with faster, more accurate scans that improve traffic flow, Paulo Oliveira, CFO at Formosa Supermarkets, said.
The point-of-sale solution includes the NCR RealPOS 40 combined with the NCR RealScan Bi-optic Scanner. Ideally engineered to withstand intense conditions and high volumes, the scanner is able to read barcodes on all six sides of products, even FEBRABAN codes found on invoices.
NCR bi-optic scanners scan both 2D barcodes on mobile devices and drivers’ licenses and traditional bar codes on product labels.
The implementation of the POS solution was carried out with the help of Bureau Tecnologia, NCR’s channel partner in Belém.
Beyond being engineered for withstanding intense conditions and high volumes, the scanner can read barcodes on all six sides of products, even FEBRABAN codes found on invoices.
“Formosa Supermarket was experiencing delays at the point of service that were unacceptable to customers and not conducive to growing the retailer’s business,” says Jorge Belmar, vice president of retail for CLA and Brazil, NCR.
“NCR technology enables the supermarket to better control store flows with retail-hardened equipment that will stand up to the rigors of the Brazilian climate and help provide a much better experience for shoppers,” Belmar added.
