Susan Johnson & Anthony Piniella/NCR Corporation
Based in Duluth, NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) is the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, running the everyday transactions that make consumers’ lives easier and help businesses drive profitable growth by creating exceptional customer experiences. The company powers more than 450 million consumer transactions a day across multiple industries, and works with numerous professional sports teams, including the MLB, NHL, NBA and 65 percent of all NFL stadiums.
Today, stadiums have to work hard to lure fans as the rise of the stay-at home fan has become a real concern. In addition to spending hundreds of dollars on tickets and concessions at the stadium, fans are increasingly frustrated that they spend much of the game waiting in lines rather than watching the game. As a result, many are opting to watch the game from the comfort of their couch.
With a new four-year partnership, NCR and the Atlanta Falcons are teaming up to bring fans an exceptional game experience, leveraging new technology for NCR to drastically reduce time spent waiting in line for Falcons merchandise. This will make home games more enjoyable and convenient, and boost sales for one for one of the most well-known franchises within NCR’s local community.
