POS systems from NCR Corp gets top honours from Aberdeen
Jan '09
Aberdeen Group, a global technology research and advisory firm, has named NCR Corporation as a “Champion,” a top designation from its Aberdeen AXIS Report for Retail Point of Sale (POS) Systems. The Aberdeen AXIS report, created as a global vendor assessment tool for retailers, rates POS retail solution providers primarily on Market Readiness and best Value Delivered to customers – two categories in which the report shows NCR leads the pack.

NCR retail clients include global leaders within the grocery, drug, foodservice, general merchandise and convenience store industries. NCR 's POS software solutions are designed to help businesses transform the consumer experience, make check out easier and faster, and optimize operational efficiencies. Retailers can gain a true competitive advantage when deploying NCR POS software integrated with NCR 's extensive retail automation portfolio, including self-checkout, self-service kiosks and workstations.

“The 2008 POS AXIS results have shown NCR has performed above par. Our data shows that NCR provides 50 percent higher value to its customers when compared to the norm. According to our data and qualitative interviews with NCR customers, the main advantage of NCR POS software is the ease of integration, flexibility and scalability when combined with NCR hardware,” said Sahir Anand, senior research analyst, Aberdeen .

Aberdeen developed the AXIS Report for Retail Point of Sale Systems to provide retail businesses with a competitive intelligence perspective on how various service and products providers are best positioned to help them achieve their goals.

The report assesses the success of the respective technology in the context of the user's environment. The assessment is based on two key dimensions: first, Aberdeen aggregates Best-in-Class performance of companies in the target marketplace based on primary surveys conducted typically over the past twelve months; and second, Aberdeen conducts a vendor readiness assessment which includes evaluation of responses to a standardized vendor questionnaire, analyst briefings and customer interviews.

“NCR is very pleased that retailers rating POS systems placed NCR POS software atop the rankings in the Aberdeen AXIS report. The fact that customers, and analysts like Aberdeen , continue to recognize NCR POS software is a testament to the value that these solutions provide,” said Richard Arnold, NCR vice president, Retail Industry Marketing. “This Champion status validates our global leadership in helping retailers transform their businesses, move faster and operate with greater ease.”
