BECU, Washington State's largest credit union and the nation's fourth largest credit union, recently expanded its relationship with NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), purchasing 50 newly introduced NCR SelfServ automated teller machines (ATMs) with Intelligent 'No Envelope' Deposit technology.
The deal also includes NCR's Gasper Vantage management tools for the remote management of the ATM network, APTRA Edge software and services. The new order will add to BECU's existing network of approximately 150 NCR ATMs.
Shirley Taylor, Virtual Banking Channel manager for BECU, said, "We are very excited that BECU members will be among the first in the nation to experience this new generation of ATMs. NCR SelfServ offers significant advantages and differentiation from the ATM of the past. We see this purchase as an important step toward our ongoing strategy to provide our members with the highest availability and most intuitive touchpoints with our many services. NCR has proven its product and service reliability and innovation, which are vital to delivering the very best experience to our members."
Brian Bailey, NCR vice president of Financial Industry Marketing, said, "NCR recognizes BECU as an innovator in providing excellent service to its members across all channels: at the branch, ATM, telephone or Internet. Our partnership and implementation of Intelligent Deposit technologies is another example of how BECU is bringing choice and 24/7 convenience to the consumers of the Seattle metro area. We have been very pleased at the excitement and confidence BECU shows in our latest generation of ATMs, which will further expand BECU's leadership in ATM innovation and consumer experience."
The new NCR SelfServ range was formally introduced to the marketplace last week, with testing taking place over the past several months. It builds on the success of NCR's Personas ATM family, the most widely deployed ATM in the world. NCR is the global leader in self-service technology, including image-based Intelligent Deposit ATM installations, with more than 4,700 such units deployed in North America and over 30,000 worldwide.
