Euronet Worldwide has won a contract with the UK Post Office to deliver 130 merchant-replenished automated teller machines (ATM) to branches across the country.
The project is in addition to the full-service ATMs Euronet already operates in 65 Post Office branches.
Peter Davies, ATM client manager, Post Office Ltd, says: "As part of an overall programme, this arrangement with Euronet will enable us to provide ATM services across the United Kingdom, including in many small and rural areas, often where there is no traditional access to banking services. We want to provide ATMs in as many of our 18,000 branches as possible."
The Post Office serves over 28 million customers per week. The Post Office branch network is the largest retail chain in Europe, and on average, 95% of the UK population live within one mile of a branch.
In July 2001 Euronet gained certification to drive ATMs in the UK from the national Link Interchange Network.
