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