Bytes Managed Solutions has partnered with Barclays Bank for the installation of intelligent cash deposit ATMs in Botswana.
The new ATMs are specifically designed for high transaction usage by NCR. They will accept cash deposits with real time credit capability, recycle the deposited cash, dispense cash, do cheque deposits, and offer a broad range of other services, such as bill payment, funds transfer, mobile phone top-up and mini-statements.
Substantial adjustments had to be made to the ATMs for the Botswana market. Currency note templates had to be developed and then tested rigorously for correct note detection and rejection. The Project Management Office at Bytes worked extensively with NCR subject matter experts and Barclays Bank of Botswana to ensure maximum accuracy.
Proof of concept and demonstration of the ATM began midway through 2013. The bank’s representatives were able to see the ATM in action at last year’s ATMIA in Cape Town and at a recent NCR Branch Transformation event.
