NCR Deploys Wireless ATM Withdrawals in under 10 Seconds

NCR launched its “NCR Mobile Cash Withdrawal” software to allow consumers to initiate cash withdrawals from their banking accounts on mobile devices and then complete those transactions at an ATM by scanning a 2D barcode. This makes ATM transactions faster and more secure by removing cards and PINs from the process at the ATM and takes less than 10 seconds. Consumers will authenticate through their existing mobile banking application and pre-stage the transaction via an embedded NCR Mobile Cash Withdrawal function.

Once at their bank’s ATM, the consumer will use the embedded functionality to scan the 2D barcode on any participating ATM’s home screen, and the pre-staged cash transaction will be authorized and funds dispensed.
