Company: NCR Corporation
Published: 12 January, 2012
DULUTH, Ga.-- NCR Corporation today announced the NCR RealPOS 82XRT point-of-sale (POS) terminal that delivers more processing power, scalability and systems management to the point of service. The solution will be showcased at the National Retail Federation BIG Show in New York City, January 16-17, at NCR’s booth #415.

Fueled by Intel's® second-generation Core™ high-performance processors, the new workstation will enable retailers to serve shoppers faster and deliver rich, multimedia content at the point-of-sale to help boost sales and service levels. This increased processing power is complemented by the addition of Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 on select models, which automatically reallocates core and graphics processor resources to accelerate performance, giving users an immediate performance boost when needed.

Its advanced architecture excels at managing concurrently-running, high-performance applications, without slowing down mission-critical transaction processing. This includes high definition (HD) video and graphics on customer-facing displays, which can enhance the effectiveness of promotions, such as loyalty programs or cross-sell and upsell, at the point-of-sale.

Another new addition, Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) technology, enhances remote management capabilities. Support staff can now view the POS system and remotely diagnose and take action on systems as if they were in the store. Tool-free access is also provided to further increase serviceability levels and uptime.

“Our highest-performance POS terminal to date provides retailers with advanced technology and enhanced processing power to deploy applications at the point-of-sale as part of a converged retailing experience for shoppers,” said Greg Egan, general manager and vice president of retail store automation, NCR Corporation. “It provides the headroom for future business growth and new solution capabilities to help retailers protect their systems investment.”

Available from NCR directly and via indirect partners who are part of the NCR Interact Global Partner Program, the NCR RealPOS 82XRT supports multiple operating systems, including Microsoft® Windows® 7 Professional, Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional, Microsoft® Windows® Embedded POSReady 7 and Microsoft® Windows® Embedded POSReady 2009, and SUSE® Linux® Enterprise Point of Service 11.
