Unified Grocers, Inc., a cooperative grocery wholesaler based in Los Angeles, has formed a strategic relationship with NCR Corp. whereby the company will support and promote the NCR Advanced Checkout Solution (ACS) point-of-sale (POS) software solution to its approximately 3,000 independently owned retail grocery customers in the western United States.
Joining Unified and NCR in the strategic relationship are NCR RealPartners SNCR and Team Business. These NCR resellers will facilitate the execution of the program, as well as the delivery and support of the ACS solution to Unified's retail customers.
"This program enables our independent grocer customers to realize the same benefits from their NCR Advanced Checkout Solution POS deployment as large North American food chains," said Mike Brown, general manager, retail technology, Unified Grocers. "Also, through this relationship, Unified's retail customers will be able to leverage NCR's expertise and industry leadership in self-service technology, including the NCR FastLane self-checkout solution, to improve service levels and better manage operational costs."
ACS is designed to enhance customer service and help retailers improve labor productivity, retain profitable customers, and quickly adapt to changing business environments, according to NCR. ACS can be customized for larger retailers or packaged for smaller retail formats.
