NCR, in collaboration with Samsung Electronics America, Inc., has launched NCR Silver Quantum, an all-in-one, point-of-sale commerce station featuring an integrated payment device with mobile wallet acceptance capability, customer display, loyalty scanner and Samsung Galaxy tablet, according to a press release.

A 10.1-inch Android Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet serves as the employee interface, featuring touchscreen operation. It is pre-loaded with the NCR Silver Android point-of-sale app, which delivers functionality such as inventory management, marketing support and sales reporting once activated through NCR.
Businesses can remotely set up and customize their NCR Silver Quantum device through Samsung Knox Configure, a cloud-based service and IT administration tool offered by Samsung.
NCR Silver Quantum is the first full Android-based solution in the NCR Silver lineup. In addition to incorporating a Samsung tablet and Knox Configure, NCR Silver Quantum includes an embedded RP457c mobile card reader provided by Ingenico Group, which enables the commerce station to accept a variety of payment methods, including magstripe, EMV chip and NFC/contactless transactions such as Samsung Pay.
NCR Silver Quantum offers battery life of up to 10 hours for merchants who want cordless operation, and has a small physical footprint, measuring less than 13 inches in width.
Chamblee, Georgia-based Ponko Chicken chose NCR Silver Quantum for its all-in-one functionality, intuitiveness and aesthetic, according to the press release. Co-owner Reiko Clark said the customer support also played a part in her selection.
"For the grand re-opening, we wanted sexy, modern-looking technology that matched our restaurant's aesthetic," Clark said in the press release. "NCR Silver Quantum not only looks stunning on our counter; it has everything in one package. The easy to use, point-of-sale app and back office, powerful software and dedicated NCR Silver team were also huge factors in choosing this technology partner to make our expansion dreams a reality."
