Kuwait Food Company (Americana),
franchisee of Kentucky Fried Chicken, Hardee’s, Pizza Hut, TGI Friday’s
and Baskin Robbins restaurants in the Middle East, announced a US$1.1
million contract with NCR Corporation to install point-of-sale
(POS) systems in more than 80 restaurants throughout Saudi Arabia.
The total solution incorporates NCR’s 7454 — a hospitality, touchscreen POS
workstation with advanced multimedia functionality — as well as an existing
license for software from Compris, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NCR that
specializes in software for fast food restaurants. Installation will be
complete in October 2002.
“NCR’s breadth of services and support infrastructure, as well as the
superior design and reliability of the NCR 7454, made our decision simple,”
said Mr. Ali Nour El Dine, Corporate IT director, Americana. “We are
confident that NCR has the global reach and expertise to ensure our success.”
An intuitive touchscreen interface makes NCR’s hospitality solution simple
to operate. When not in use by store personnel, the workstations can run
customer promotions or employee training programs.
“Our reputation and commitment to excellence in the hospitality industry
are known worldwide,” said Alberto Camuri, vice president of NCR Retail
Solutions Division for Europe, Middle East, Africa and South Asia Pacific.
“NCR has the global reach and local resources to manage and maintain a smooth
and successful rollout.”
