for restaurants that extends the simplicity of the base Silver POS with specific restaurant
Specific technology demands for restaurants vary greatly. As a leader in this space, NCR meets
these demands with a broad set of solutions, each of which is designed to serve specific market
demands. Typically, restaurants who are target customers for SPRE will have less complexity
and lower annual unit volume; however, in most cases determining the right solution “fit” will
require a high-level review and astute observation of the restaurant operations to confirm that
capabilities offered by SPRE match the operator’s needs.
Comparison guides have been developed to help you understand the general points of
differentiation between our two POS offerings: Silver Pro Restaurant Edition and Silver. Each
guide provides breakdowns between Silver Pro Restaurant Edition and Silver. These guides are
separated into three categories:
• Restaurant Profile - what type of customer will generally be served best by the solution?
• Optimization - what high-level technical capabilities does the solution provide?
• Capabilities - what restaurant-specific features/functions are provided by the solution?
Depending on the complexity of the operations and the revenue of each location, NCR Small
Business has two solutions that can fit the needs of many restaurant operators. In order to
best address the needs, it is important to understand the high-level differentiation between
which types of operators would leverage each solution:
This segment consists of restaurants with medium volume/mid-level
operational complexity, and many operators in this segment have been
using either ECRs or competing subscription-based, cloud-based
POS solutions that run on consumer devices (such as iPads).
Silver is designed to be a single solution that serves multiple
segments of the market (both retail and restaurants). As
such, restaurants best served by Silver are simple and have
limited menus, such as a cupcake shop or food truck.
ECRs in the past have typically served the majority of
restaurants in this segment, but restaurant operators
have been seeking additional functionality that
cash registers cannot provide, such as simple
customer engagement and mobile restaurant
