NCR Corporation and Credit Card Center have joined forces in a three-and-a-half year global deal making NCR the “preferred provider” for Credit Card Center of ATMs to serve the booming convenience sector.
The first deal under the Credit Card Center agreement is for 50,000 NCR ATMs, representing a commitment in ATM hardware and software for convenience stores and restaurants in the U.S. and Canada.
“NCR is an excellent strategic long-term fit with Credit Card Center as NCR and its worldwide presence will enable us to serve global markets as well,” said Andrew Kallok, president of Credit Card Center, the Philadelphia- headquartered distributor of ATMs. “NCR has a growing formidable range of software and hardware for the entry level market, which will enable the introduction of web-based services and increased revenues for ATM deployers worldwide.”
Pat Cronin, senior vice president of the Financial Solutions Division of NCR, said the strategic alliance is another prime example of NCR’s strong commitment to the provision of ATMs to the convenience market.
“Credit Card Center’s superior distribution capabilities, NCR’s global service organization and our worldwide leadership as an ATM provider make for a powerful self-service solution for owners of retail ATMs,” Cronin said.
