NCR Launches Indoor and Outdoor Mobile Payment Solution

NCR Corporation, a global leader in omni-channel solutions, has unveiled its new NCR Mobile Payments solution at the NACS Show, the leading convenience and fuel retailing event, held in Chicago from October 17 to 20. The cloud-based solution enables fast mobile transactions for a variety of mobile wallets and card schemes, allowing retailers of all sizes to offer their customers greater payment flexibility without having to install new hardware.

The solution is built on P97’s PetroZone® platform, one of the industry’s most mature, end-to-end mobile payment platforms in the United States. It ties directly with the NCR RPOS and EPS point of sale solutions to enable fast, easy, indoor and outdoor mobile payments at gas stations and convenience stores around the U.S., and eventually around the world.

“This landmark agreement with NCR enables us to stay ahead of the innovation curve and offer customers convenient mobile payments, both inside the store and at the pump,” said Don Frieden, Founder and CEO, P97 Networks.

Retailers can either integrate the NCR mobile payment solution into their existing mobile app, or use capabilities of the solution to build their own app and add additional features such as location finder, promotions as well as product information.

“P97 has long been an innovator in this space, and together we are helping retailers provide a new customer experience by integrating payments, loyalty programs and contextual marketing all in one solution that appeals to today’s mobile users,” said Tom Chittenden, vice president and general manager of Retail Solutions at NCR.

The platform accepts a long list of payment methods including traditional card networks Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, mobile wallet providers MasterPass, ChasePay and ApplePay, as well as leading automated clearing-house services.
