NCR Buys Netkey to Provide End-to-End Kiosk and Digital Signage Solutions

NCR Corporation announced today that it has purchased the assets of Netkey, Inc., a market-leading provider of kiosk and digital signage software applications used by leading companies to deliver a growing range of multi-industry self-service applications such as gift registry, guided selling, endless aisle and human resources functions. Terms were not disclosed.
ABI Research predicts that companies will spend more than $1 billion globally on digital signage solutions next year, growing at an average of 20 percent per year for the next five years, while kiosk deployments will grow an average of 19 percent per year during the same period.
Netkey's enterprise software platform uses a proven scalable architecture that enables fast and flexible development of applications for kiosk and digital signage-based solutions. NCR will combine Netkey's software platform with its own technologies to provide a best-in-class enterprise solution, which includes software applications, one of the broadest hardware portfolios in the industry, and a suite of services. NCR will continue to provide multivendor hardware support with the Netkey solution.
Headquartered in East Haven, Conn., Netkey has over 75,000 kiosks and digital signs installed by more than 400 clients in the retail, finance, transportation, and government sectors. Many of these customers also use NCR 's kiosk, self-checkout or point-of-sale solutions.
Netkey will provide NCR with a robust digital signage application that is built on the same platform as Netkey's kiosk applications, making NCR's solutions faster to deploy and easier to support.
