Walmart US “Shoppers and retailers recognise the speed and value self-checkout provides and shoppers tell us they are eager to see it expanded into other retail segments,” said Scott Kingsfield, senior vice president and general manager, NCR Retail.
NCR is also providing expertise from its Human Factors Engineering group to make the self-checkout experience as easy and convenient as possible through user interface design, configurations, layouts and best practices.
