NCR Corporation announced that Cathay United Bank (“CUB”) has become the first bank in Taiwan to provide personalized automated teller machine (“ATM”) transactions by using NCR APTRA Connections software. CUB is the fourth largest ATM deployer in Taiwan with more than 1,900 ATMs. APTRA Connections is now running on about 180 units of NCR SelfServ ATMs and 120 units from another vendor. Most of these ATMs are installed at busy locations. CUB is also planning to extend the new features to its entire ATM network gradually. APTRA Connections enables CUB to recognize their customers and display personalized greeting message. CUB customers can customize their ATM menu by pre-selecting favorite transaction options that include their usual cash withdrawal amount, bill payment and bank transfers, resulting in fewer screens to navigate and save time – as much as 33 percent faster than a typical transaction.

Diebold introducing its new concept virtualized ATM at the VMworld 2011. The virtualized ATM prototype was developed in collaboration with VMware, removing the onboard computer from the ATM, tying each terminal in a fleet to a centralized computing resource. In this scenario, the physical components of a single server provide resources to many “virtual” ATMs. This consolidates and shares resources throughout a self-service network and across delivery channels. Consolidation allows the establishment of a single secure datacenter, allowing for greater control and a secure location for IP addresses. Through better server utilization and unification of ATM management, virtualization will also boost operational efficiency, enable faster failure recovery and more rapid software upgrades and services deployment. In short, virtualization will lead to a lower total cost of ownership and increased ATM uptime.
