In what NCR calls a "combination of self-service and mobile payments," the company today announced the launch of NCR Mobile Pay. The solution is designed for restaurants that use NCR's Aloha point of sale, according to the announcement.
The solution allows patrons to "favorite" an item, re-order items, browse their bill, alert a server, provide feedback or get an emailed receipt, all integrated with social media, NCR said.
NCR Mobile Pay is accessible by a website or QR code, provided by the restaurant's server, which takes users directly to their check on their mobile browser, according to the announcement. The solution encrypts and accepts credit card information with password protection to ensure security.
"We want restaurant patrons to have the best experience possible while dining. NCR Mobile Pay is the newest way we do that. Review your order, add to it, take a survey, tip and pay. We've put all of those abilities in the consumer's control," said Mike Finley, vice president and chief technology officer of hosted solutions, NCR Hospitality. "With NCR Mobile Pay, consumers take action instead of waiting. It's the promise of mobility, delivered by NCR."
