Kaufland clocks up 50 years, rolls out NCR tech

Hypermarket chain Kaufland is using NCR’s self-checkout solution as part of its store modernisation initiative.

The retailer, which operates about 1,270 stores in Europe, 660 of which are in Germany, where it’s headquartered, has equipped about 160 with the NCR tech, and plans further roll-outs over the next few years.

“During our 50th anniversary, we want to highlight that Kaufland continuously evolves to attract new customers, engage existing customers and grow our business,” says Sven Homes, Head of IT at Kaufland. “NCR self-checkouts play an important role in this effort by giving customers more flexibility in how they complete purchases inside our stores. Shoppers can scan and pay at their own pace, and we see a reduction in queues and waiting times, most notably with small and medium sized baskets.”
