Global technology company NCR Corp. has secured an order from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China for more than 2,000 NCR SelfServ ATMs. The purchase came from the bank's first and second batch ATM central buy orders in 2013, and includes a total of 2,146 units to be deployed by ICBC at various branches nationwide.
"As the leading ATM provider in China, NCR is proud to achieve year-on-year volume purchase from our key customer, ICBC," said Gary Miao, president of NCR Financial Services in Greater China. "We are pleased that our SelfServ ATM has earned continuous trust and recognition from ICBC in making their customer's everyday transaction easier."
NCR is the leading ATM provider in China in terms of installed base, and has received volume orders from all of the country's major banks, according to the release.
Maio said the Chinese market still offers strong growth potential for financial self-service solutions, and that banks are under pressure to increase ATM availability and flexibility.
NCR SelfServ ATMs are designed with "self-healing" technology, and recover automatically and quickly from soft failures with no need for service intervention. This reduces average recovery time and increases ATM availability, the company said.
