The Atlanta Falcons and NCR announced Thursday that the automated teller maker will be a founding partner in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Duluth-based NCR will provide checkout equipment, touchscreen navigation systems, digital menus and other technologies inside the new stadium, according to a news release.

The Falcons plan to have 14 founding partners, and NCR joins IBM, SunTrust Banks, Equifax and aluminum giant Novelis as named partners so far.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is expected to open in 2017, and will be the home of the Falcons and Major League Soccer franchise Atlanta United.

NCR has been a Falcons sponsor since 2013, the release said.

NCR is known as a maker of travel kiosks, cash registers and other transactions technologies, and the company has been working to transform itself into a software and services provider as well. The company is planning a splashy new Midtown Atlanta headquarters.

Arthur Blank needed to call in National Cash Register to help count all the money he fleeced from Atlanta through taxes and sky-high PSLs?

Will all the founding firms be included in the name? If so, it would take 5 minutes to say the new name of the dome! Will their brand be on the roof so it looks like a NASCAR car?

NCR Travel kiosk business is dead.  Company mired in "opaque and aggressive accounting" according to private equity firms.  CEO battling some unknown sickness (watch recent video interviews).  Retail business in tatters.  This won't end well.

@AceptableName  This wasn't a very nice post. Many great engineers there, and the comment about Nuti was downright below the belt.

By the way, his illness isn't unknown. He has a neurological disorder similar in some ways to ALS, but it only affects motor skills.
