Credit Agricole Centre Est is to deploy 200 NCR Personas 73 automated teller machines (ATM) at its branches in the Lyon area.
The regional bank, which is part of the Credit Agricole Group, says the introduction of a cash deposit facility at its ATMs is an important element of its drive to improve customer services. It is anticipated the machines will shift time-consuming transactions away from the counter, reducing customer queues and freeing staff for other queries.
The Personas 73 is NCR's first dedicated bunch cash accepting ATM, providing an around the clock automated cash deposit facility which promises an optimal transaction time of under 60 seconds. The solution also provides validation of currency, allowing the bank to offer credit for cash deposit or bill payment at the NCR Self-Service TouchPoint and providing the customer with immediate proof of deposit.
In addition to accepting deposits the Personas 73 can provide on-line balance inquiry, mini-statement and receipt printing.
