Dollar Bank to Expand its Relationship with NCR
Dollar to upgrade its ATM fleet with advanced NCR software and hardware
DULUTH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NCR Corporation (NYS: NCR) today announced that it is growing its relationship with Dollar Bank. Beginning this summer, Dollar Bank will begin replacing 60 older non-NCR ATMs with NCR's most advanced deposit-taking ATMs, NCR SelfServ™ with scalable deposit module. All of Dollar Bank's ATMs will run on NCR APTRA™ Edge software for multivendor ATM environments.
NCR SelfServ ATMs with scalable deposit module (SDM) make the deposit portion of an ATM transaction twice as fast. SDM is the only technology in deployment that allows consumers to deposit both cash and checks simultaneously, in any orientation, through a single slot. This consumer-friendly technology makes ATM deposits faster and easier, and helps banks improve the customer experience. In addition to the SDM units, Dollar also is replacing 10 older ATMs with traditional NCR SelfServ ATMs.
Dollar Bank also has decided to run its ATM network using NCR APTRA multivendor software. According to the most recent report from London's Retail Banking Research (RBR), NCR is the world's #1 provider of multivendor ATM software.
"Prior to our roll out of our video ATMs, Dollar Bank had never worked with NCR. But it quickly became clear to us that NCR shares Dollar's passion for finding innovative ways to deliver great customer service," said Jim McQuade, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking, Dollar Bank. "Through NCR's advanced ATMs and the software that brings the customer experience to life, we are giving our customers more access to financial services in a modern and dynamic environment. NCR has a clear vision for technology's role in the future of retail banking."
Dollar Bank began using NCR video ATMs, APTRA Interactive Teller, beginning in July 2012. At Dollar Bank, these units are referred to as Personal Teller Machines (PTMs).
"We're pleased that we've been able to grow our relationship with such a well-respected and forward thinking financial institution," said Adam Crighton, vice president and general manager of hardware, NCR Financial Services. "Dollar Bank customers will soon be able to enjoy state-of-the-art self-service banking that is fast and easy to use. Being able to deposit cash and checks together is just one of the ways NCR is making everyday life easier for banks and their customers."
