NCR Corporation, a provider of financial-oriented self service technologies, has announced that it will provide retail technology and services to the 154-store Modell's Sporting Goods chain.
Modell's will deploy 1,000 of the NCR RealPOS 82XRT point-of-sale (POS) terminals. NCR will also provide Modell's with services and support over a multi-year period. NCR was selected to support Modell's chain-wide strategy to enhance customer service and loyalty by offering a faster check-out experience along with content and offers at the point of sale, NCR said.
Modell's will deploy the RealPOS terminals starting in the second quarter of this year. The RealPOS terminals support high definition video and graphics on customer-facing displays, increasing the effectiveness of all loyalty program promotions and offers. Additionally, the system's advanced architecture ensures transaction processing is fast, allowing shoppers to be checked out quickly, the company added.
Modell's CEO Mitchell Modell, said: "As Modell's works to evolve our stores, we needed a technology partner with comprehensive solutions that could meet our and our shoppers' omni-channel retailing needs today and tomorrow. NCR is a leader in retail innovation and we believe we now have a technology foundation that will help us provide the ultimate in customer satisfaction and shopper experiences."
