New interface creates a faster, more convenient experience for consumers; New revenue streams, efficiency for cinemas
DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NCR Corporation (NYS: NCR) today announced the NCR Slimline 85 for cinema, the latest evolution in NCR's innovative line of kiosks, which will be on display at booth 2603A at CinemaCon at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, April 15-18. This kiosk provides automated ticketing, making it easier for moviegoers to purchase tickets and concessions with a tablet-like user experience. The 32-inch touch-screen can display multi-media of movie art and trailers providing an engaging way to buy tickets and pay for concessions.
"NCR remains dedicated to providing products and services that make everyday easier for both consumers and cinemas," said Brian Whitney, managing director cinema, NCR Hospitality. "We expect that this kiosk solution will be a real differentiator for theaters that are aggressively seeking unique ways to improve both the patron experience and per-cap figures."
Featuring an intuitive user interface, the Slimline 85 enhances the movie-going experience for guests and builds strong loyalty through convenient ticket purchases and ordering of concession items. The higher visibility, self-service capabilities, and consistent promotion of key items will help to increase concession sales, margins and overall guest satisfaction.

Enhanced multi-media graphics on a 32-inch touch-screen

Ability for users to view movie trailers and pay with credit cards and/or gift cards
