Hungarian cash machine operator Giro Bankcard has licensed ATM testing and EMV software from Level Four.
GBC, which hosts approximately 750 ATMs from multiple providers on behalf of Hungarian banking customers, is using Level Four's ATM Channel Development Suite to design, configure and test new ATM content from a desktop PC. The move comes in response to increasing demand for multi-lingual ATM screens and new types of transactions services, such as mobile phone top up.
GBC also intends to implement Level Four's EMV FastTrack module to aid the upgrade of its shared ATM network in preparation for compliance with the new smart card standard.
Level Four already supports OTP Bank, the largest retail bank in Hungary, with ATM network enhancement and preparations for EMV.
Dr. György Timár, CEO, Giro Bankcard Ltd, comments: "Partnering with a proven vendor is vital to the expansion of our ATM business and to the Hungarian banking community. We currently operate and manage 25% of the country's ATMs so it is critical that the service is modern, reliable and secure."
