Bangalore : NEC India Pvt. Ltd., a leading network and IT solutions provider, today announced the landmark customer win of PVR Cinemas, where NEC will provide its state-of-the-art retail solutions, including the latest “TWINPOS G Series” – 3700G2, G5 and G7 models at 12 locations in India, including PVR’s food courts, bowling alleys and multiplexes. In line with the strategy to increase focus on entertainment, F&B and the gaming businesses, this implementation will help PVR streamline its retail functions at a radically low total cost of ownership (TCO) through its exceptional serviceability, reliability and power conservation while enhancing the customer experience.
