NCR to provide software, services and hardware, including two-sided printing, for multi-store concept in 180 VA Hospitals throughout the US and Puerto Rico
Veteran’s Canteen Service (VCS), the retail and hospitality network serving the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, is deploying a new point-of-sale (POS) solution from NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) in 180 VA Hospitals across the United States and Puerto Rico.
The pilot was deployed in December 2010, and the rollout to all VCS locations is scheduled to begin in March 2011. The solution includes approximately 1,100 NCR RealPOS™ 70XRT POS terminals, the NCR GenPOS software, as well as project management, software development, testing, integration, deployment, on-site training and technical support. NCR also will partner with Smart Receipt, a target marketing firm, to deliver nutritional information on the back of NCR’s patented two-sided thermal receipts.
“VCS offers a multitude of retail and dining options to our Veterans and their families. We needed a partner that could deliver and support a comprehensive solution for all of our different store concepts,” said VCS Director Marilyn Iverson. “NCR has the retail expertise and vast services organization to support our vision of maintaining an efficient, innovative, customer-driven organization.”
VCS will deploy the NCR solution in retail shops, cafeterias, combination locations (retail and food), coffee shops, optical shops, and concessionaires.
