NCR Silver to Make Everyday Easy for 600 Cellairis Franchise Stores and Their Shoppers

NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) announced today that NCR Silver, the company’s cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) solution for small businesses, will be used at more than 600 franchise Cellairis locations, making everyday easier for Cellairis franchise owners, their shoppers and Cellairis’ corporate office. Cellairis is the world’s largest franchised mobile device accessory company.

NCR Silver is already implemented and successfully running in several Cellairis locations. A full scale rollout at Cellairis locations in the United States and Canada began in January 2013, and will continue throughout the year until all existing locations are utilizing NCR Silver. All new Cellairis locations will also utilize NCR Silver.

Individual Cellairis franchise owners will benefit from using the powerful NCR Silver software as a service (SaaS) POS technology. NCR Silver will help them to easily manage their businesses, market to customers and sell both behind the counters and on the sales floors at their Cellairis locations. Cellairis stores are typically located at malls and shopping centers. In addition, franchisees will be able to accept credit card payments using NCR Silver’s integrated credit card processing functionality that features secure, end-to-end encryption.

At the corporate level, Cellairis will use the NCR Silver API to expand their analytics into the rich data NCR Silver collects at each Cellairis franchise location. This will allow Cellairis to better manage company-wide inventory, gauge demand for products, leverage sales data and give Cellairis better system-wide insights into its business.

“With franchisees using multiple systems, some still including traditional cash registers that offer no business analytics, collecting data for corporate needs was very cumbersome and time-consuming,” said Harbor Hall, Cellairis CIO. “NCR is the leader in retail POS software and hardware and we’re delighted to be able to offer our franchisees a system that makes it easy for them to run and manage their own businesses and that makes it easy for Cellairis to get information and make corporate-wide decisions in a timely way.”

NCR Silver’s powerful, cloud-based technology allows NCR Silver to go beyond simple payment swipe and cash-register functions, giving small business owners the power to track sales, profits and inventory; market to customers with targeted and customized email campaigns; easily analyze business trends; and manage business finances. NCR Silver operates on Apple® iOS devices like the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®, allowing small businesses to interact with customers, sell and manage their businesses from anywhere. Apple devices are sold separately.

“We’re excited about this partnership with Cellairis and how NCR Silver will make everyday easy for Cellairis franchisees, Cellairis’ corporate offices and the Cellairis shopper,” said Christian Nahas, vice president of NCR’s small business group. “We look forward to future partnerships with franchise operations like Cellairis, bringing entrepreneurial franchise owners powerful technology to run their sites and large franchisors like Cellairis the powerful system-wide analytics they require to run their business.”

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.
