NCR Corporation announced Wal-Mart will deploy 3,000 NCR Web Kiosks. Known within Wal-Mart as Automated Customer Service Machines, the kiosks will be rolled out nationwide to every Wal-Mart store and Supercenter by the end of May.
The gift registry ACSM will be located near the jewelry department and will enable shoppers to create bridal, baby and/or birthday registries by scanning the items they wish to include. Wal-Mart developed the registry software in cooperation with NCR’s Human Factors Engineers (HFE), NCR’s engineering group that assures systems are easy to learn and use.
“The simplicity and convenience of this customer service technology will offer our wonderful Wal-Mart customers additional shopping choices and help further support our philosophy of providing exceptional customer service at everyday low prices,” said Wal-Mart Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Kevin Turner.
