DULUTH, Ga. -- March 25, 2013

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) today announced NCR Aloha Mobile, an innovative
extension of the NCR Aloha Table Service point-of-sale (POS) software. Aloha
Mobile allows restaurants to easily and securely deploy mobile technology for
tableside ordering and payment. In addition, this allows for an increase in
speed of service and order accuracy, thereby improving guest satisfaction
while boosting sales and profits.

“As the leader in hospitality technology, we want to make everyday easier for
restaurant operators with the best possible software solutions for their
business to help increase revenues and bottom line results. NCR Aloha Mobile
is the newest way we do that,” said Kim Eaton, senior vice president and
general manager, NCR Hospitality. “Today, NCR is extending the proven Aloha
platform with a mobile software solution, adding significant value to our
customers’ new and existing investments.”

Aloha Mobile is comprehensive, feature-rich software that gives servers full
mobile access to many of the robust features of the Aloha POS. The user
interface (UI) for Aloha Mobile mirrors the well-known UI of the Aloha POS
software. This makes it fast and easy for restaurants to train servers and
have them start taking tableside orders and payments immediately and very
efficiently. Further, Aloha Mobile provides servers this capability across
many mobile hardware platforms, including the latest generation of NCR
Orderman devices as well as Apple^® iOS devices like the iPad^®, iPad Mini^®,
iPhone^® and iPod touch^®.

“Aloha Mobile has delivered great results for my business and ultimately my
customers,” says Rusty Winkstern, owner of el Monumento in Georgetown, Texas.
“My servers are using Aloha Mobile on an NCR Orderman device to place orders
and receive payment at the table as well as to cover larger sections without
sacrificing customer service. It is integrated seamlessly into my existing
Aloha system and we’ve seen marked improvements across the board in terms of
number of table turns, employee tips, and customer satisfaction. It’s the
right mobile solution for us and I couldn’t envision using anything else.”

Many other operators expect similar benefits. According to Hospitality
Technology Magazine’s 14^th Annual Restaurant Technology Study, the acceptance
of handheld POS is rapidly increasing. The study showed that the number of
restaurant companies that see value in investing in wireless handheld POS
terminals has increased to 80 percent in 2012, up from 20 percent just three
years ago. Moreover, nearly one-third of operators surveyed believe wireless
POS terminals help serve guests more quickly and 62 percent state a wireless
handheld POS increases guest satisfaction.

Commercially available in the U.S. beginning in 2012, the Orderman handheld,
when operating with Aloha Mobile, is a secure PA-DSS validated solution that
works without any changes to a restaurant’s existing credit card processing.

Aloha Mobile is now available on the Orderman device for table service
operators throughout the United States and Canada. The software will be
available on iOS devices later this year, giving restaurant operators a range
of choices in how they deploy mobile technology to best meet their needs.
