Formosa Supermarket selects NCR hardware solution

Formosa Supermarket has selected an NCR hardware solution to improve service levels in its stores.

One of the largest supermarket chains in Brazil, Formosa Supermarket has adopted a point-of-sale solution includes the NCR RealPOS 40 combined with the NCR RealScan Bi-optic Scanner. NCR RealPOS 40 runs on the Windows 7 operating system.

Formosa has three stores in the Brazilian city of Belém, and enjoys some of the highest revenues per store and by checkout in the country. The supermarket chain required a solution that would be able to deal with increased store activity, as well as the hot and humid in-store conditions.

“In a competitive marketplace, we have to constantly improve the experience for our customers, giving them a reason to choose Formosa Supermarket,” said Paulo Oliveira, CFO at Formosa Supermarkets. “Our new NCR technology solution helps improve the customer experience, and create greater efficiency within our stores with faster, more accurate scans that improve traffic flow.”

The solution has been implemented by NCR’s channel partner in Belém, Bureau Technologia.

“Formosa Supermarket was experiencing delays at the point of service that were unacceptable to customers and not conducive to growing the retailer’s business,” said Jorge Belmar, vice president of retail for CLA and Brazil, NCR. “NCR technology enables the supermarket to better control store flows with retail-hardened equipment that will stand up to the rigors of the Brazilian climate and help provide a much better experience for shoppers.”
