Tech company NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) says it will bring NCR Silver, its small business point-of-sale (POS) system, to select Staples stores in the U.S. this month, Nov. 2012.
NCR Silver, which operates on Apple iOS devices like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, will be displayed on aisle end-caps, providing NCR Silver with a premiere location within Staples stores and making it easier for customers to find.
Signage will highlight NCR Silver’s payment, security and business management tools.
Small business owners who visit Staples will get the NCR Silver Register Bundle for a retail price of $499. The bundle includes the Receipt Printer for NCR Silver, the Credit Card reader for NCR Silver, the Cash Drawer for NCR Silver and the NCR Swivel Stand for iPad. The cost also includes a free 30-day trial of NCR Silver. Apple devices are sold separately.
With NCR Silver, small business owners can experience the flexibility to take their business anywhere. The cloud-based technology allows NCR Silver to go beyond simple payment swipe and cash-register functions, says the company.
NCR Silver allows business owners to track sales, profits and inventory; market to customers with targeted and customized email campaigns; easily analyze business trends; and manage business finances. After the 30-day trial, NCR Silver costs $79 per month with no long-term contract.
NCR Silver will be available in all U.S. Staples locations and online at www.staples.com in January.
