“The POS evolved from the original cash register,” he said. “This is a logical place for them to play.”
Riegel said the new partnership could see the creation of about 100 jobs in the Dayton region.
He also pointed out the international aspect of the partnership with 30 offices around the world.
“It’s an opportunity for two great American companies to drive domestic operations from global customers,” Riegel said.
The NCR-Stratacache partnership brings together comprehensive software solutions that link to the NCR Commerce Platform, powerful analytics and 24x7x365 field service that allow restaurants to deliver agile dynamic campaigns and customized experiences to engage consumers, the companies said in a statement.
“Digital signage is a powerful tool that goes beyond simply communicating a menu. It can create operational efficiency, personalize the guest experience and drive revenue,” said Dirk Izzo, president and general manager, NCR Hospitality. “By partnering with Stratacache, NCR is accelerating digital signage innovation and delivering solutions that create a competitive advantage to our customers, giving them more tools to run the restaurant.”
NCR, which was founded in Dayton in 1884, moved to Atlanta in 2009. The company is a full end-to-end provider from order creation to payment settlement that brings together software, services and hardware.
Stratacache provides a full scope of consumer engagement technology and services to the world’s largest restaurant, retail, brand and service companies. Its technology is used in 28 countries worldwide.
