Dunkin’ Donuts will also be able to enjoy the benefits of NCR Configuration Center’s above-store capabilities, allowing the chain to improve operational efficiency at the store-level in their Brazilian locations. Each new item or price change on the menu is automatically synchronized, simplifying management’s daily work.
Dunkin’ Donuts has committed to using mobility as a competitive advantage to monitor transactions and reports on-demand.
