NCR Corporation and Lynk Systems, Inc., announced a sales referral agreement naming Lynk, a leading provider of electronic payment processing services, an NCR Solution Provider.
! Lynk and NCR will offer Lynk’s Integra point-of-sale payment processing system to their mutual customers as a fully integrated solution with NCR’s ScanMaster POS platform — a suite of applications for managing supermarket store operations.
Credit, debit and electronic benefits transfer payments are handled quickly and efficiently with Integra and ScanMaster. After a shopper selects a payment method, the transaction is routed to Lynk for processing, then back to the POS system where customer and cashier await approval.
Bresette’s IGA Marketplace, Kansas City, Mo., was a pilot site for the integrated solution.
“Previously, our electronic payments system was separate from the POS system,” said Bresette’s owner, Paul Bresette, Jr. “Now, these transactions are an easy one-step process, while end-of-day balancing has become simpler and more efficient. Integra does not require a separate local area network (LAN), which reduces the complexity of the system and saves money on installation and troubleshooting. This will significantly reduce our total cost of ownership.”
Kansas City-based Cash Register Sales Co. (CRS), an NCR reseller, is the POS supplier for Bresette’s. “The combination of Lynk services with NCR ScanMaster offers an outstanding value proposition for supermarkets,” said Russ Land of CRS. “Implementation at Bresette’s went smoothly. We’re pleased with the responsiveness and level of support provided by Lynk, and Integra interfaces seamlessly with ScanMaster.”
Lynk is a proven leader in electronic payment, cash dispensing and e-commerce services.
