NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, today announced that Union Pearson Express (UP Express) has selected the NCR TouchPort 100 check-in solution for three key stations along the Union to Pearson route to the Toronto Pearson International Airport. Connecting Toronto Pearson International Airport with Union Station in downtown Toronto in just 25 minutes, the Union Pearson Express simplifies how Canada’s busiest airport is linked to its largest city.
The NCR TouchPort 100 is an ideal solution for UP Express. The rollout will support UP Express’s efforts to improve the travelers’ experience as the NCR solution can be used to check-in while you wait for a train. An ‘all-in-one’ common-use kiosk will allow a customer to check-in, print a boarding pass, and other airline specific capabilities.
Several factors led to UP Express’s adoption of the solution, including software integration, ease of use and value. When searching for a modern check-in system, UP Express looked for one that could adapt to its environment. UP Express’s key purpose was to provide a convenience to their customers to avoid waiting in line upon arrival at the airport and to make it as seamless a process as possible during peak hours for travelers to quickly check-in.
In addition to improving the travelers’ experience, UP Express also selected the NCR solution because of its user-friendly interface. Travelers can use the solution with minimal or no instruction which enables the platform to deliver instant value to UP Express.
“Travelers increasingly seek out alternatives that will expedite their check-in experience, and this is especially important in an environment where time is especially precious,” said Dennis Davidson, vice president of Travel, NCR Corporation. ”NCR has enabled UP Express to deliver an innovative and convenient check-in experience that will serve travelers well for years to come.”
