DULUTH, USA: The NCR SilverTM mobile point-of-sale (POS) system for small businesses is now offering remote payment and order ahead capabilities that are compatible and operable with Apple PayTM, a service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay, says an announcement.
These capabilities will be offered for free to merchants until January 1, 2015, added the company. Users of the NCR Silver system will also have the option to integrate customer loyalty so it works seamlessly with order and pay ahead features.
As further explained, two of the biggest benefits of ordering and paying ahead with Apple Pay are faster service and shorter lines.
“Supporting Apple Pay to deliver order ahead functionality is another way that NCR, with the Silver system, continues to be a true partner to small businesses,” said Justin Hotard, president, NCR Small Business. “In this case, we are enabling small businesses to use technology in ways that change the way they interact and connect with customers. In the coming months, more consumers will want to pay with an iPhone, and we are helping our merchants support this demand.”
