First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) is to deploy ATMs running software based on the new interactive financial exchange (IFX) messaging standard and developed by NCR Corporation and ACI Worldwide.
The non-proprietary IFX standard replaces legacy ATM transaction authorisation protocols and allows firms to use the same software applications and supporting infrastructure across several channels for the first time.
Scott McCormack, second vice president at the bank says: "The IFX messaging standard is a key component of our strategic ATM renewal initiatives."
FNBO will install cash machines running NCR's Aptra Edge software - which enables an 'intelligent' application to run on the ATM - and utilising ACI's Base24 transaction processing system.
NCR says IFX-based intelligent client/server ATM applications are the future of self-service and its partnership with ACI is critical to making the standard a reality across the marketplace.
