Overview Edit

John H. Patterson founded the National Cash Register Company (NCR), maker of the first mechanical cash registers, in 1884. (The company name was changed to NCR Corporation in 1974.)

In 1914, NCR developed one of the first automated credit systems.

In 1952, NCR acquired Computer Research Corporation (CRC), of Hawthorne, California, which produced a line of digital computers with applications in aviation. In 1953, NCR established the Electronics Division to continue to pursue electronic applications for business machines.

NCR was acquired by AT&T in 1991, and its name was changed to AT&T Global Information Solutions (GIS) in 1994. In 1996, AT&T GIS changed its name back to NCR Corporation. It became an independent, publicly-traded company in 1997. NCR continues to operate from its corporate headquarters in Duluth, Georgia.
