NCR Corporation, a consumer transaction technologies firm, announces that Fogo de Chão has successfully implemented NCR Aloha point-of-sale software at its 32 restaurants around the world. The full-service, fine-dining restaurant already uses NCR Aloha in its 23 U.S. locations.
Fogo de Chão selected NCR because of the sales and administrative functions it offers the international restaurant chain. In addition to NCR Aloha POS software, Fogo de Chão is using NCR Insight and NCR Configuration Center’s above-store capabilities, allowing the chain to improve operational efficiency at the store-level in its Brazilian locations.
NCR Insight is sales reporting software that manages and analyzes web-based reports. The software is expected to help the chain forecast revenues, increase controls, lower operational costs, and reduce time spent on lower-value administrative tasks. Furthermore, the NCR Configuration Center solution will make it easier for Fogo de Chão to make item changes on the menu by providing a centralized, web-based database.
“We wanted to replicate the same success we have had in our restaurants in the United States at our locations in Brazil," says Marcelo Macedo, administrative director of Fogo de Chão in Brazil. "NCR is a proven and trusted partner with a broad portfolio of innovative restaurant solutions we can use to better manage our operations and create an exceptional brand experience that resonates with our customers."
A key requirement for the restaurant was the ability to integrate NCR Aloha with its existing accounting software, in order to improve control of its sales and administrative functions.
“NCR restaurant solutions are easy to integrate, implement and use," says Ricardo Carreon, general manager of NCR Brazil. "With NCR’s industry-leading software and technology, Fogo de Chão is well positioned to expand into Brazil and provide its customers with the same, great dining experiences they are accustomed to in the U.S."
