NCR buys StopLift to bolster POS security


NCR said on Tuesday that it's buying StopLift Checkout Vision Systems, makers of computer vision systems for retail point of sale. NCR, a predominate maker of point-of-sale terminals, plans to integrate StopLift's AI capabilities into its POS portfolio. "This acquisition will help NCR accelerate growth in our market-leading self-checkout and store transformation solutions," said NCR chief executive Michael Hayford. "In addition to creating new value for our retail customers around the world, StopLift's fraud detection technology will be a key enabler of our frictionless commerce product strategy." Theft at the self-checkout is an ongoing issue for retailers, and there are a bevy of systems out there that work to prevent retail shrinkage.
