    NCR Corporation (NYSENCR) is a technology company specializing in products for the retail, financial, travel, healthcare, food service, entertainment, gaming and public sector industries. Its main products are self-service kiosks, point-of-sale terminals, automated teller machines, check processing systems,barcode scanners, and business consumables. They also are one of the largest providers of IT maintenance support services. From 1988 to 1997 they sponsored the NCR Book Award for non-fiction. It has its headquarters in the city of Duluth (Gwinnett County), Georgia.[5]

    The company was founded in 1884 and acquired by AT&T in 1991. A restructuring of AT&T in 1996 led to NCR's re-establishment on 1 January 1997 as a separate company, and also involved the spin-off from AT&T of Lucent Technologies; NCR is the only AT&T spin-off that has retained its original name ? all others have either been purchased or renamed following subsequent mergers.

    For the twelve months ending 31 December 2006, NCR Corporation reported revenues of US$6.142 billion, with a net income of $382 million.

    On January 8, 2007, NCR announced its intention to separate into two independent companies by spinning off Teradata to shareholders. Bill Nuti will continue in his current role as president and CEO of NCR, while Teradata Senior VP Mike Koehler will assume leadership of Teradata.[2]

    On 1 October 2007, NCR Corporation and Teradata jointly announced the Teradata business unit spin-off was complete, with Michael Kohler as the first CEO of Teradata.[3]

    On January 11, 2007, NCR announced plans to restructure its entire ATM manufacturing operations, with 650 jobs at its Dundee plant being cut [4] A further 450 jobs were cut in Waterloo, Ontario,Canada. In 2009 , the Dundee manufacturing facility was closed , citing global economic conditions as the reason

    NCR extended its self-service portfolio into the digital media market with the January announcement of NCR Xpress Entertainment, a next-generation multichannel entertainment kiosk solution. The launch of NCR Xpress Entertainment follows NCR?s acquisition of Touch Automation LLC on Dec. 31, 2007. [5]

    On October 15, 2008, NCR announced a global reseller partnership with Experticity, a Seattle-based software company.[6] NCR can now supplement its existing suite of technology offerings with the industry's first market-proven in-store video customer support solution. According to Richard Arnold, NCR Vice President, Retail Industry Marketing, "Experticity's innovative live video technology paired with flexible and robust self-service kiosks from NCR provides retailers with a way to redefine the in-store experience for their customers, while also improving business efficiencies by optimizing staffing resources."

    On June 2, 2009, NCR announced a plan to relocate its corporate headquarters from Dayton, OH to Duluth, GA. This news was shocking as Dayton served as NCR's home for 125 years. [7] "The decision to consolidate functions in Georgia and build a technology focused corporate headquarters campus is right in line with our business strategy to drive growth, improve our innovation output, increase productivity and continually upgrade our focus on the customer," said Bill Nuti, NCR?s chairman and chief executive officer.
