    Units Running up to 1,000 Transactions a Day at Detroit's Greek Town
Casino Benefit from NCR's Service and Uptime Capability

    DAYTON, OHIO, November 14 /CNW/ - NCR Corporation (NYSE:  NCR) today
announced it has signed a global reseller agreement with NRT Technology
Corporation, a leading provider of hardware and applications for the gaming
industry, headquartered in Toronto. The partnership with NRT will provide
NRT's worldwide casino and gaming industry customers the opportunity to select
NRT's industry-leading QuickJack and QuickJack Plus systems, now integrated
with NCR's Personas(TM) 77 automated teller machine (ATM) platform.

    John Dominelli, president and chief operating officer for NRT, said,
"It's all about giving our customers choices. We want to give our customers
the option of selecting the hardware/software solution that best suits their
needs. We were impressed with the NCR hardware, as well as the extensive
service capability NCR brings to the table. We are very pleased to be able to
offer NRT customers the choice to work with NCR, starting in Greektown and
then as we move forward with additional casino customers in North America,
Macau, Europe, Australia and South Asia."

    NCR Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bill Nuti, said, "This is an
exciting time for NCR as we take steps to expand our current footprint, while
building on the excellence and solid foundation we have in self-service and
assisted-service technology innovation that empowers customer interactions.
NCR already has a strong presence and experience within the gaming industry,
from ATMs to hotel self-check-in and other ancillary services, so growing our
presence within gaming delivery systems is a natural step."

    The industry-leading NRT QuickJack automated dispensing systems include a
secure ATM cash dispensing unit, a network monitoring system that monitors and
provides alerts for proactive servicing and support, as well as a
comprehensive BackOffice system for control and reporting. It allows for the
redemption of slot tickets for cash, the redemption of player points, money
exchange, cash withdrawal and breakage of bills into smaller denominations.

    Following a successful pilot of the combined NCR and NRT technology, the
new QuickJacks are now live at Greek Town Casino in Detroit, Michigan. Each
unit at Greek Town performs up to 1,000 transactions per day, placing high
demands on parts, service and uptime capabilities. These transaction volumes
far exceed typical ATM usage, yet NCR's robust technology passed the
usability, service and parts availability test.
