If you can think back to the early days of technology, you might remember hard-to-navigate websites that were anything but intuitive. It goes to show how much we have been able to advance our innovations in just a matter of years. Stater Bros. Markets is upping its own technological prowess, teaming up with the NCR Commerce Platform (NCP) for an exciting rollout.
“To improve our shoppers’ experience and create new, compelling services, NCR delivered a simplified platform architecture and built-in redundancy for maximum uptime,” said Gil Salazar, Senior Vice President of Information Technology, Stater Bros. Markets. “NCR Emerald checked every box, and as our customers’ needs change, the technology will be able to evolve, which is critically important to our business.”
Tapping into the NCP, Stater Bros. has optimized NCR Emerald, which is a cloud-based, point-of-sale (POS) solution that utilizes the platform to unify all technology needed to run the store. As explained in a press release, NCR Emerald allows Stater Bros. to roll out capabilities to its POS lanes with ease, speed, and flexibility, empowering the company to easily deploy more options for its consumers.
With an open platform approach, NCR seeks to help retailers run their stores and generate meaningful customer experiences by simplifying the process and helping its retail partners adapt to the evolving digital world and changing consumer behaviors. Allowing easy integration, Stater. Bros. was able to successfully deploy all-new software and lane hardware across its 171-store footprint in just 15 weeks.
“NCR Emerald will simplify Stater Bros. store operations and open up connections to the NCP, enabling better data insights and an improved consumer shopping experience,” said David Wilkinson, President and General Manager of NCR Retail. “The NCP unifies technology needed to run the store and provides the backbone for new services that further spur innovation.”
