Hyderabad– US-based NCR Corporation, a global leader in omni-channel solutions, will move its Hyderabad R&D facility here to a new state-of-the-art location by early next year.

The new facility at Raheja Mindspace will be a global centre of excellence for NCR as part of its transformational journey towards leadership in the omni-channel evolution.

Starting in 2004 with 50 engineers, NCR’s current Hyderabad R&D centre houses more than 800 professionals focused on software development for the financial, retail, and hospitality industries, as well as 125 consultants supporting customer deployment of NCR technologies.

Hyderabad R&D centre is one of NCR’s largest software development centres and will remain a critical hub focused on developing innovative solutions for global markets, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

The Hyderabad centre is already developing and supporting software and services that global institutions use to empower consumers through self-service applications like the Interactive Teller ATM, EMV contactless ATM cash withdrawals, mobile cash withdrawals, mobile check deposits, EMV-enabled multi-industry payments systems, retail self-checkout lanes, CRM platforms, and cinema and stadium systems management solutions, among many others.

“As we continue to build our innovative, omni-channel architecture, the Hyderabad facility will play an important role as a strategic global centre for software development,” said Eli Rosner, senior vice president and chief technology officer for software solutions at NCR Corporation.

NCR operates in 180 countries, with India increasingly becoming an area of significant operational growth. In addition to the R&D Centre in Hyderabad, NCR has a new world-class manufacturing facility in Chennai, a development centre in Gurgaon and sales & services headquarters in Mumbai.
