Kum & Go Adds Radiant Technology to Portfolio
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kum & Go and NCR Corp. reached an agreement to bring the Duluth, Ga.-based supplier’s Radiant convenience store technology into the locally based retailer's stores, which number over 400.
Kum & Go chose the Radiant solution to manage a wide range of its business operations from one system, including fuel island, foodservice and multichannel marketing initiatives. The full breadth of the solution includes point-of-sale software and hardware terminals, fuel controllers and electronic payment controllers. The integration of the solution will enable Kum & Go to deliver an exceptional customer experience, helping the company connect with consumers both inside and outside the store, according to NCR.
"We were looking for a technology solution that could easily scale with us and support future growth initiatives," stated Kum & Go CFO Craig Bergstrom. "NCR was able to meet our needs and provides a strong, feature-rich technology that decreases our overall technology costs."
NCR acquired Radiant Systems, a point-of-sale solution provider to convenience stores and other specialty retail markets, through a cash tender offer of $28 per Radiant Systems share this summer. The equity purchase price totaled $1.2 billion, as CSNews Online previously reported.
"As the leading technology provider for the c-store industry, NCR is focused on delivering innovative and reliable solutions that drive profitable growth and simplify c-store operations," said Jimmy Frangis, vice president, NCR Hospitality and Specialty Retail. "We value our new relationship with Kum & Go and are proud to work with a company that shares our vision of providing industry-leading customer service."
