News : Italian Supermarket Iper Creates an Engaging Shopping Experience with NCR
Milan, Italy, June 20, 2016 -- NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global provider in consumer transaction technologies, announced that Iper, La grande I, has adopted the latest generation of NCR Retail solutions at its new Italian store in Milan. Thanks to the NCR hardware and software solutions, Iper customers can enjoy a more pleasant, engaging and time effective shopping experience.
This modern store is equipped with a range of NCR hardware and software that automates the checkout services, offering customers the choice of self-service or assisted checkout in a simple and fast way. Specifically, Iper has selected the NCR RealPOS XR7 systems to provide its cashiers with a workstation that combines ergonomics, aesthetics and operational efficiency.
Iper also offers a number of self-checkout options for customers, such as the NCR Fastlane Self-Serv Checkout solution where customers scan their purchase and pay with cash or other payment options. In addition, the hypermarket uses the smaller NCR Self-Serv 90 for two types of transactions.
Iper staffs the self-service checkout areas in order to support customers with questions or additional needs.
"Thanks to NCR’s cutting-edge and easy-to-use solutions, we are always able to offer our customers an attractive shopping experience, suited for all types of consumers," said Valerio Cortese, Information Systems Director of Iper. "Iper Arese is an example of our strategic evolution in retail, and for this reason we need innovative and trusted partners such as NCR, who understand our technological needs for each consumer touchpoint."

We combined the most appropriate solutions in our NCR portfolio, enabling Iper to offer this unique shopping experience," said Tatiana Corà, Area Sales Leader Retail, NCR Corporation. "NCR continues to accompany Iper in its innovation process, selecting the most advanced technologies and solutions for a convenient, easy-to-use, fast and convenient checkout experience."
