NCR Corp. and Performance Food Group Co. have entered into a strategic referral relationship to bring NCR Silver, a cloud-based point-of-sale product, to more restaurants in the U.S.
Performance Food Group, a food-product supplier, will introduce NCR Silver to its 36 Performance Foodservice distribution centers nationwide, which deliver food and food-related products to regional and national restaurant operators. Restaurateurs will be able to purchase NCR Silver software and hardware under a subscription service model, according to a press release.
With NCR Silver, Performance Foodservice customers will be able to check out customers quickly and gain access to sales, inventory and employee scheduling reports. They will also be able to offer customers targeted loyalty discounts and promotions. In addition, NCR Silver’s customer service team provides live, 24/7 U.S.-based support.
“NCR’s deep-seated history in the restaurant space and the solution’s ability to drive efficiency makes this an ideal partnership for us,” Fred Sanelli, senior vice president of marketing and sales development at Performance, said in the release. “With NCR Silver, our customers will be better equipped to grow their businesses and maintain profitability.”
Performance also will soon expand its relationship with NCR by integrating its order management system with NCR Silver to further streamline restaurant operations. The planned integration will enable restaurant operators to not only ring up orders, manage inventory and employee schedules, but also order from Performance’s vast inventory of food and food-related products.
