Survey: NCR is world’s largest self-checkout supplier

Duluth, Ga. NCR ranks as the world’s largest self-checkout supplier with revenues estimated at nearly three times that of its closest competitor, according to the September 2010 VDC Research Group report, “Retail & Transaction Automation Equipment: 2010 Business Planning Service, Track 1, Volume 5, Self Check-out Solutions.”

NCR had held a leading market share in all regions since VDC Research Group added self-checkout to its Retail Automation Practice in 2002.

“NCR Corp. is among a short list of forward-thinking retail automation vendors that have demonstrated the ability to envision and address the oft-competing requirements of retailers and their customers, for security and flexibility in their retail solutions,” said VDC Research Group’s executive VP Christopher Rezendes.

The findings were corrraborated in a separate report, “Global EPOS and Self-Checkout 2010,” by RBR Research. NCR has held the global market leader position as the world’s largest self-checkout supplier in terms of installed base since RBR Research began following self-checkout in 2009.
