Duluth, Ga. -- NCR Corp. announced that the company’s point-of-sale terminals will now be the preferred checkout technology at Springdale, Ark.-based Harp’s Food Stores, an employee-owned company, which operates 66-plus grocery stores in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
NCR’s RealPOS 60 checkout terminals will be used in all new Harp’s stores and will replace checkout equipment at 10 existing Harp’s stores. The grocer chose the NCR technology due to its high serviceability, compact size and price-to-performance ratio.
The ability of the terminal to be mounted to a wall was also a key selling point for Harp’s.
“By allowing us to mount the terminal to the wall of our cashier stations, we are able to ensure the device is up and away from spills and this wall mounting allows us to maximize the use of space in this area,” said Mark Pierce, director of store systems, Harp’s Food. “Overall the NCR RealPOS 60 terminals provide an outstanding blend of performance and value.”
NCR RealPOS 60 has been pre-integrated and tested with the grocer’s existing point-of-sale software, NCR Advanced Checkout Solution.
In addition to the POS terminals, NCR will supply Harp’s stores with its RealPOS Dynakey, which allows cashiers to focus on customer interaction while minimizing mistakes that can cost time and lower customer satisfaction, and its RealPOS Cordless Handheld Imager, a cordless device allows cashiers to easily and quickly scan large, bulky or heavy items on the cashier belt or left in the shopping cart.
