Big Y will be one of the first grocers to deploy NCR Corp.’s new point-of-sale (POS) model that aims to bring more configuration options and choice for retailers.

Big Y of Springfield, Massachusetts, which serves customers in southern New England, is deploying the new RealPOS XR8. Big Y will replace non-NCR POS units at more than 1,000 lanes in 61 stores with the new terminals.

“Big Y recognizes the necessity of staying at the forefront in technology and for that reason we selected NCR’s RealPOS XR8 point-of-sale solution,” said Michael Tami, VP of information resources and technologies for Big Y Foods. “The XR8 hit all our marks on performance and will allow us to expand as technology solutions change. Another important factor was the innovative design that will save us time in the field with serviceability.”

Added Gary Dalton, product director at NCR Retail Solutions, “Our new hardware solutions help round out our RealPOS family, giving retailers a wide variety of choices in POS configurations and designs that blend seamlessly into any retail environment.”

The NCR RealPOS XR8 will fit into nearly any retail environment, including under a counter, on top of a counter or with a peripheral integration tray. It features a unique new design that allows front or rear peripheral connectivity, which simplifies cabling and service accessibility. In addition, all input/output is behind a locking door to help secure connections. NCR’s image recovery button lets store associates easily restore a corrupt POS system within seconds.

The other NCR model is named RealPOS XR5 and is described as an energy-efficient, fanless, multi-touch POS terminal packaged in the NCR X-Series all-in-one design. It can be deployed on a countertop stand, a floor-standing pedestal or hanging on a wall or pole; the XR5 provides flexible installation options to meet the needs of many different store formats. According to NCR, it gives retailers high-energy efficiency, lower operating temperature and “uncompromised performance. On-board ‘odometers’ proactively capture vital health and usage statistics to prevent downtime. The projective capacitive display provides multi-touch and gesture support to boost associate productivity and to let them interact in a way that is familiar to them.”
