NCR Corporation launches the NCR Mobile Pay solution

Mobile payments in restaurants

NCR Corporation is launching NCR Mobile Pay, a solution which enables restaurant patrons to browse their bill, re-order menu items and alert their server via their smartphones (view press release). The solution is designed for restaurants that use NCR Aloha POS technology, enabling cloud-based credit card processing on mobile devices. According to Gartner, worldwide mobile payment transaction values will surpass USD 171.5 billion in 2012, a 61.9% increase from 2011. In addition it is expected to average 42% annual growth between 2011 and 2016.

 “We want restaurant patrons to have the best experience possible while dining. NCR Mobile Pay is the newest way we do that. Review your order, add to it, take a survey, tip and pay. We’ve put all of those abilities in the consumer’s control,” said Mike Finley, VP and chief technology offer of hosted solutions, NCR Hospitality. “With NCR Mobile Pay, consumers take action instead of waiting. It’s the promise of mobility, delivered by NCR.”

NCR Mobile Pay is integrated into the solution and encrypts and accepts credit card information. NCR Mobile Pay is accessible by a website or QR code, provided by the restaurant’s server, which takes users to the check on their mobile browser.
