Performance Food Group Company, a leading food service supplier, announced that it has entered into a strategic referral relationship with NCR to bring NCR Silver, the cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) solution, to more restaurants throughout the United States.
PFG will introduce NCR Silver to its 36 Performance Foodservice distribution centers nationwide, which deliver food and food-related products to regional and national restaurant operators. Those customers will then be able to check out customers quickly and gain access to sales, inventory and employee scheduling reports. In addition, restaurants can offer their customers targeted loyalty discounts and promotions.
Restaurateurs can purchase NCR Silver software and hardware under a subscription service model and will have access to a customer service team providing live, 24/7 U.S.-based support.
“NCR’s deep-seated history in the restaurant space and the solution’s ability to drive efficiency makes this an ideal partnership for us,” said Fred Sanelli, senior vice president of marketing and sales development at Performance Foodservice. “With NCR Silver, our customers will be better equipped to grow their businesses and maintain profitability.”
By utilizing NCR Silver’s cloud and tablet technology, restaurateurs can take mobile payments in their restaurant, as well as easily sell their products on the go.
PFG plans to expand its relationship with NCR soon by integrating its order management system with NCR Silver to enable restaurant operators to ring up orders, manage inventory and employee schedules, as well as order from PFG’s inventory of food and food-related products, all from one platform.
“The PFG team provides restaurant operators with dedicated service and high-quality products, and we’re confident NCR Silver will complement these efforts,” said Colin Armbruster, director of global channel for NCR Silver. “Working with PFG supports our strategy to put intuitive and comprehensive technology in the hands of independent restaurateurs who need all-in-one technology solutions so they can focus on their customers.”
