NCR self-checkout wins design award


Duluth, Ga. The newest version of NCR SelfServ Checkout, a market-leading self-checkout solution from NCR Corp., is among the 2009 winners of the International Design Excellence Awards competition.

Created in 1980 by the Industrial Designers Society of America, the IDEA program is the premier international competition honoring design excellence in products, eco-design, interaction design, packaging, strategy, research and concepts.

NCR SelfServ Checkout earned a bronze award in the IDEA program’s Commercial and Industrial Products category. The only self-service technology solution named in this year’s competition, the NCR SelfServ Checkout enables consumers to scan, bag and pay for goods on their own using cash, debit or credit, including the increasingly popular contactless payment cards. It incorporates a number of features designed to enhance customers’ shopping experience, while helping retailers maximize productivity, minimize costs and promote their store brand.

Additionally, the technology includes a variety of features designed to support retailers’ commitment to the environment. A standard feature in each unit is the NCR RealPOS two-sided thermal receipt printer, which prints on both sides of receipts, reducing paper consumption by up to 40%. This can result in less energy being consumed during paper production and distribution, as well as reductions in waste disposal, air emissions and wastewater. In addition, an “own bag” button allows shoppers to use their reusable bags.
