Jumbo Supermarket has selected NCR, a global provider of retail technology solutions, to roll out self-checkout solutions for its more than 680 retail stores in Holland and Belgium.
NCR has been the leading provider of self-checkout solutions since 2003 and continues to evolve its technology with innovations in touchless self-checkout. And Jumbo says it selected NCR due to its unparalleled expertise and proven solutions that add value to the customer experience in the new retail reality.
“After a comprehensive evaluation, NCR stood out through its deep understanding of our pledge to make shopping faster for our customers and how self-checkout would enhance our customer experience,” said Tim Hehenkamp, executive director of technology and data at Jumbo. “We are looking forward to this next step in our digital transformation with NCR.”
This deployment will complement Jumbo’s existing store architecture that includes NCR’s enterprise software platform R10, another key element of NCR’s Next Generation Retail Store architecture, as well as NCR’s mobile scanning solution, NCR FastLane Mobile Shopper.
“We are pleased to extend our relationship with Jumbo Supermarkten,” said David Wilkinson, president and general manager of NCR Retail. “By automating processes at the front end and beyond through self-checkout, their staff can provide higher value services for a compelling customer experience to give customers more control of their shopping trip.”
Jumbo is the second largest supermarket chain in the Netherlands. Founded in 1979, it is part of the privately owned Van Eerd Group. NCR is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, with 36,000 employees globally.
