Retail Data Systems Appointed NCR Premier Point of Sale Dealer

OMAHA, Nebraska (June 24, 2013) – Retail Data Systems (RDS), the largest Point of Sale (POS) dealer in the U.S. serving the independent Grocery, Hospitality and Convenience Store market, has been appointed by NCR Corporation as a NCR Premier POS Dealer.  The announcement means that RDS will be the only provider in the markets it serves of all three NCR Grocery POS platforms; ISS45, ScanMaster and ACS IR.

In November of 2012 NCR entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Retalix Ltd., a leading global provider of POS software, for a cash purchase price of $30.00 per share.  At the time RDS was Retalix’s largest dealer partner.  The acquisition of Retalix by NCR was completed in February of 2013.  Since that time the NCR/Retalix Transition Team has been reviewing the dealer sales channel of both companies to determine the best overall combined sales and service organization to serve the independent grocery market.

Since 1950 RDS has been serving the independent grocery market and now provides POS sales and support services to thousands of independently owned grocery locations.  For years RDS was the largest Retalix dealer partner installing both ISS45 and ScanMaster POS systems throughout the United States.  With the appointment by NCR making RDS a NCR Premier POS Dealer, RDS will be able to expand their sales and support services to ACS IR customers throughout the Midwest and Southeast and provide all customers a definitive roadmap toward the future NCR POS platform…R-10.

“I am very excited we were able to earn the continued support of NCR and everyone at RDS is proud to be named a NCR Premier POS Dealer,” said Bob Seider, President and CEO of Data Systems, Inc. the parent company of RDS.  “We have enjoyed a relationship with NCR for many years through our Hospitality and C-Store divisions.   The acquisition of Retalix provided an opportunity to expand what was already a very strong relationship.  We plan to move forward very quickly in assimilating the ACS-IR product so that we can provide ACS-IR users the same high level of sales and support services enjoyed by our other grocery customers.”
