Brunei-based Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) is rolling out biometric-enabled ATMs from German vendor Wincor Nixdorf.
Instead of entering their PINs, the bank's customers will identify themselves at machines through their fingerprints.
Following a successful trial, BIBD is rolling out seven of the Wincor Nixdorf ProCash 8000 biometric-enabled ATMs this month.
In addition, the bank has adopted Wincor Nixdorf's ProView software to monitor the entire ATM network, minimising downtime from technical glitches and cutting fraud.
Javed Ahmad, MD, BIBD, says: "The technology allows customers to use the biometric ATMs with a bank card, but their finger print identification can now replace the traditional use of remembering and then inputting a number password."
