Belgian banking group KBC has signed an agreement with NCR Corporation to replace its ATM network in France and Belgium with the vendor's Personas cash machines.
NCR says it has been selected as the sole ATM supplier to the bank and will gradually replace KBC's ATMs with its Personas M Series 76 units.
The vendor says its cash machines enable the bank to quickly and easily introduce image-based, intelligent cash deposit transaction capability, in lieu of envelope deposit.
Some of the new machines are also equipped with its cash recycling technology, which accepts, validates, sorts and stores deposited cash, quickly and reliably. The deposited cash can then be re-used and dispensed to subsequent customers who wish to withdraw cash from the ATM.
Dirk Cuypers, head of electronic banking for KBC, says: "Our customers will be able to select their transactions from a high-quality, colour touchscreen. To ensure that the ATM is accessible to every customer, the height of the ATM, as well as the size and location of its screen, makes the Personas M Series easy-to-reach and easy-to-use by all consumers, including those with disabilities."
