NCR Advanced Checkout Solution Certified Compliant with ARTS IXRetail Standard


May 2, 2006, ATLANTA – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) announced that the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS) has certified NCR Advanced Checkout Solution (ACS) point-of-sale (POS) software as conformant with the ARTS IXRetail POSlog standard.

POSlog is an extensible markup language (XML) schema that organizes data captured at the POS. POSlog-conformant software allows POS data to be quickly integrated into other applications such as delivery, sales reporting, credit authorization, fraud analysis and inventory tracking.

“NCR ACS has successfully passed the ARTS conformance test process, verifying its ability to accurately generate the POSlog XML schema,” said ARTS Executive Director Richard Mader. “Retailers look for POSlog compliance as added assurance that their POS applications and other store systems can be integrated quickly with reduced risk and at lower cost.”

Designed for high-volume checkouts, NCR ACS helps retailers of virtually any size enhance customer retention, increase labor productivity and adapt to changing business needs.

“This certification is another example of NCR’s commitment to industry standards, which we view as a cornerstone of assuring our customers derive maximum value from their retail technology solutions,” said NCR Vice President for Assisted Service Solutions Greg Egan. “This commitment extends to our long-standing support of the ARTS Standard Relational Data Model and UnifiedPOS standards, as well as IXRetail.”
