Hot Topic teams with NCR to implement kiosk, signage apps

Duluth, Ga. NCR Corp. announced late Monday that specialty retailer Hot Topic has implemented the company’s self-service kiosk and digital signage applications.

NCR Netkey will be a core part of Hot Topic’s digital strategy, said NCR, and will include e-commerce and customer loyalty besides the kiosks and signage apps.

To date, about 1,500 NCR Netkey self-service kiosks and digital signs are in use in Hot Topic retail stores. The kiosks are used for loyalty program sign-up, to listen to music and for checking loyalty status. Phase II of the kiosk rollout, to be launched early this year, will allow shoppers to buy items on hottopic.com and have them shipped to store or home.
