Texas-based Brookshire Grocery Company (BGC) has chosen NCR Corporation to provide the foundation of its in-store POS technology. BGC will start its infrastructure journey with NCR Emerald, a cloud-native POS solution that will help unlock robust, integrated capabilities across BGC’s physical infrastructure.
“BGC places a priority on customer service, and we’re looking for ways to leverage technology to improve the experience for our customers,” said Shawn Sedate, CIO of BGC in a statement. “Now that we’re live in our first store, we plan to start rolling out NCR’s solutions to our 206 locations. By simplifying and standardizing our store infrastructure, we’ll have more time to focus on customer needs and create offers that keep shoppers coming back.”
The solution is designed to unify the technology used to run the store, delivering an effective way to merge existing and future retail applications quickly and efficiently. NCR aims to deliver an experience-focused operating model via a platform that will enable BGC to bring innovation to market faster and at a lower cost.
“BGC has always had the right approach to upgrading and deploying next-generation applications with speed,” said David Wilkinson, President of NCR Commerce in a statement. “It simply needed the right technology to support these efforts. From POS to self-checkout, or loyalty to payments, changes that took long periods of time to build, test and roll out across large store estates can now be achieved much quicker with the NCP.”
