“This TAG award recognizes our growing development center for mobility and cloud applications,” says NCR spokesperson.
The Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), an association dedicated to the promotion and economic advancement of Georgia’s technology industry, announced NCR Corp. as one of its Top Innovative Technology Companies in Georgia.
TAG recognized this prestigious group at the 2012 Georgia Technology Summit (GTS) on March 28, 2012, at the Cobb Galleria Centre.
TAG’s Top 40 Awards recognize Georgia-based companies for their innovation, financial impact and their efforts at spreading awareness of Georgia’s technology initiatives throughout the U.S. and globally.
“The Top 40 companies are shining examples of what makes Georgia a hotbed for innovation in technology,” said Tino Mantella, president & CEO of TAG. “Georgia is home to more than 13,000 technology companies, so we applaud the 2012 Top 40 finalists for standing out as leaders in innovation and in Georgia’s technology community. These are the types of companies that will help Georgia become recognized as one of the top states in the nation for technology.”
“This year we had a 30% increase in the number of applications over the past few years. We were very impressed by the quality and breadth of technology companies that applied,” said Dennis Zakas, a partner and founder of Zakas & Leonard LLP, chair of Group Office Buys LLC, and chairperson of the Top 40 Selection Committee. “It was very difficult to choose the Top 40 because of the large number of deserving companies. We expect great things from our winners.”
NCR was recognized for disruptive, self-service technology innovations for the petroleum and convenience store space as well as for hospitality providers.
“We are proud of the innovative NCR teams that are creating brilliant new products right here in Georgia,” said NCR Hosted Solutions CTO Mike Finley. “This TAG award recognizes our growing development center for mobility and cloud applications. This award reaffirms NCR’s leadership in how businesses and their customers connect, interact and transact business.”
