Triton Systems, Inc., the leading manufacturer of cash-dispensing automated teller machines for off-premise locations, announced the certification of Triton’s cash-dispensing ATMs by Fiserv, Inc.’s EFT Division, located in Portland, Oregon. The certification enables Fiserv EFT’s processing clients to readily deploy Triton ATMs. Triton’s equipment is now certified by nearly 35 electronic funds transfer processors in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, representing a sixfold increase since 1995.
The industry’s leading processors, such as Fiserv EFT, are responding to high customer demand for a low-cost, dial-up ATM alternative. According to Dr. Burdette, the driving force behind certification is the soaring popularity of Triton’s industry-leading 9500 and 9600 series cash-dispensing ATMs, which are now installed in more than 20,000 locations across the U.S.
“To the extent that it’s economically practicable, it’s our policy to allow clients to select the ATM equipment they prefer to use,” said Grant Christenson, senior vice president of sales and service for Fiserv EFT. “A number of clients have requested Triton ATMs because they want to address the dial-up ATM marketplace with their merchant clients. Triton not only has the largest installed base, but also its ATMs feature low-cost dial-up technology and a compact size that allow the ATMs to be deployed in locations where a full-service ATM won’t do.”
“Because of Fiserv’s leadership position in providing EFT services and their reputation for excellent service, Triton is exceptionally pleased to add Fiserv EFT among the newest processors to certify Triton’s ATMs,” said Dr. Burdette.
The expanding list of processors that have certified Triton equipment continues to fuel Triton’s rapid growth among merchants that want to deploy Triton’s low-cost, cash-dispensing ATMs. “Most payment processors are now capable of driving Triton’s industry-leading ATMs,” said Dr. Burdette. “Triton is providing unprecedented flexibility by offering more processing alternatives than any other dial-up ATM vendor. We are also providing financial institutions and retail establishments with easy access to the industry’s most popular dial-up ATM product line.”
As the leading manufacturer of cash-dispensing ATMs for off-premise locations, Triton is committed to redefining and leading the retail market for cash delivery systems. Triton is the third largest manufacturer of ATMs and ATM management software.
Triton’s product line includes the industry-leading 9600 series cash- dispensing ATMs, with optional communication interfaces such as CDPD, VSAT and Frame Relay. Additional products include the Triton Connect(TM) software package for accessing and controlling ATMs from a centralized location, ATMjr Demonstrators(TM) and ATMjr Plus CAS(TM) (Card Activation System) for financial institutions, the SuperScrip(TM) terminal, the Mako Cash Dispenser(TM) and the VendMate(TM) sidecar, which accepts cash and dispenses vending items such as tickets, certificates, and phone cards.
