Infotech Lead Asia: NCR Corporation has signed a five-year deal with ANZ to transform its ATM network with intelligent deposit ATMs.
The deal supports ANZ’s “Banking on Australia” initiative, an investment program for its Australian business to make it easier for Australians to bank with ANZ.
ANZ will launch 800 NCR SelfServ ATMs into branches, allowing 24-hour access to traditional teller services.
Scalable deposit module (SDM) enables NCR SelfServ to accept, count and process cash and cheques in one transaction, reducing the time for a typical mixed deposit to less than 60 seconds. Many of these new ATMs will also take loose coin deposits.
“We will be progressively introducing 800 of NCR’s next generation intelligent deposit ATMs from mid-next year, providing our customers with 24-hour access to many transactions that are traditionally done in branches such as providing instant value for cash or cheque deposits,” said Mark Hand, managing director, ANZ Retail Distribution.
The agreement also covers the migration of the bank’s self-service software platform to NCR APTRA Activate to enable more non-cash, web-based services and extends NCR’s existing ATM maintenance agreement for a further five years.
“ANZ’s use of NCR’s technology is an investment in its customers and a strong step towards making banking in Australia more convenient and accessible than it has ever been before,” said Ross Checkley, managing director of NCR Australia.
