News : Formosa Supermarket Selects NCR Technology
Sao Paulo, Aug 25, 2014 -- NCR Corporation, a global provider in consumer transaction technologies, announces that Formosa Supermarket, a supermarket chain in Brazil, chose an NCR hardware solution to expedite service in its stores.
Increased store activity, combined with hot and humid weather conditions required Formosa Supermarkets to incorporate a solution that not only handled large volumes but could also stand up to the climate.
"In a competitive marketplace, we have to constantly improve the experience for our customers, giving them a reason to choose Formosa Supermarket," says Paulo Oliveira, CFO at Formosa Supermarkets. "Our new NCR technology solution helps improve the customer experience, and create greater efficiency within our stores with faster, more accurate scans that improve traffic flow."
The installation and service of the technology is being completed by Bureau Tecnologia, NCR’s channel partner in Belém. The point-of-sale solution includes the NCR RealPOS™ 40 combined with the NCR RealScan™ Bi-optic Scanner. Beyond being engineered for withstanding intense conditions and high volumes, the scanner can read barcodes on all six sides of products, even FEBRABAN codes found on invoices.
"Formosa Supermarket was experiencing delays at the point of service that were unacceptable to customers and not conducive to growing the retailer’s business," says Jorge Belmar, vice president of retail for CLA and Brazil, NCR. "NCR technology enables the supermarket to better control store flows with retail-hardened equipment that will stand up to the rigors of the Brazilian climate and help provide a much better experience for shoppers."
