Fujitsu Transaction Solutions Inc. introduced the Model 8031 automated-teller machine, a weatherized, secure island drive-up unit designed to withstand all climate conditions while providing all the services of a full-function, walk-up ATM.
The self-contained Model 8031, part of Fujitsu’s Series 8000 ATM family, offers banks, credit unions and other financial institutions next-generation features, including a high-contrast color display for easy reading on the brightest sunny days and a small footprint for easy deployment and minimized space consumption.
“Fujitsu’s Model 8031 ATM has performed well since it was installed in July, which is the hottest time of the year in New Mexico,” said W. Everett Crawford, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the First National Bank of Artesia in Artesia, N.M. “The day it was installed, the temperature topped 110 degrees. Customer response has been excellent” they like the 8031’s easy-to-read screen and cool-to-touch feel in extreme heat, and our transaction volume didn’t slow at all after the it was installed. We’d like to deploy more units at our other locations.”
“Fujitsu continues to advance its line of ATMs to meet the changing requirements of ATM customers nationwide,” said Kent Schrock, marketing director of financial systems for Fujitsu. “The Model 8031 addresses the needs of mobile consumers that conduct more and more business from the safety and security of their automobiles while providing the financial institution with a durable, reliable investment for its ATM channel.
