Retailers are able to choose applications from a portfolio that is customised to meet their unique business needs and provides the agility and adaptability that they demand,” said Vincent De Stefano, director of sales Oceania Region for NCR Retail Solutions, during a press briefing to launch the new NCR product.

It’s really important that retailers make this transition to this omnichannel, because it really sets themselves up to be competitive.
