NCR Corporation has announced an agreement for LevelUp to integrate their mobile payment and loyalty solution into NCR’s restaurant POS systems, giving restaurants another way to accept mobile payments and market to their customers. The integration will provide restaurants with an easy-to-use digital payment method and offer consumers a seamless experience when paying for their meal with the LevelUp application.
LevelUp will initially interface with the industry-leading NCR Aloha POS using a site-based integration, while in parallel developing its solution for deployment via NCR Cloud Connect expected later this year. LevelUp will be one of the first companies to integrate into Cloud Connect, a new hosted infrastructure that will allow leading third parties to integrate, maintain and deploy their solution across NCR’s install base of more than 100,000 locations on the Aloha, Radiant POS and Advanced Restaurant System platforms.
Today’s restaurant operator wants to leverage technology in an integrated way to make their everyday life easier. Gartner estimates mobile payments worldwide will have 448 million users and account for $617 billion in transaction value by 2016*.
NCR’s open API software enables integration to the Aloha POS by approved
third-party applications. With this integration, restaurants using Aloha POS will
be able to accept LevelUp transactions faster and easier than ever before. First,
LevelUp transactions will be seamlessly logged with all other cash and credit
card transactions, making reconciling the day’s receipts simple. Second, data
from LevelUp campaigns will be automatically integrated into a restaurant’s
existing Aloha POS system.
