NCR Corporation (NYSE:NCR) has secured an additional order from Siam Commercial Bank (SCB), headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, for 55 NCR Personas M Series 74 automated teller machines (ATMs) designed specifically for cash deposit.
The contract also includes multiyear, second-line maintenance services and NCR's multivendor APTRA software, and follows a large order placed by the bank last year.
The NCR Personas M Series 74 supports high-capacity cash deposit and bill payment transactions and can be easily upgraded to support other services. The units can support cash-in, cash-out services, as well as cash recycling, a service popular in the region. The Personas M Series 74 can also offer passbook update services, statement printing, mobile phone top-ups and other services to satisfy varying customer needs.
Mr. Arkom Siroratanarungsi, senior vice president for SCB, said, "At SCB, we have always endeavored to be 'the bank of choice' by understanding customer needs, implementing modern technologies and presenting benchmark services to our customers. The adoption of next generation, user-friendly NCR Personas units reiterates our commitment by providing our customers with a highly secure, multifunction self-service platform that saves time and offers the best self-service banking experience."
Bob Tramontano, vice president of self-service for NCR's Financial Solutions Division, said, "NCR is all about bringing convenience to the consumer, at the time and place most useful for their individual needs. To do that, we remain committed to continuous technology innovation and a comprehensive understanding of consumer drivers. Both are used in designing our technology platforms, such as the Personas 74, to meet the present and future needs of our customers. Our partner customers, such as SCB, also benefit from the cost savings of migrating more transactions from the branch teller line onto the self-service channel."
