NCR Brings Contactless ATMs to Poland with ING
NCR Corporation, a global technology company, has introduced one of the world’s first contactless ATM environments, working with MasterCard and ING Bank ?l?ski to bring the new technology to customers in Poland. This pilot program was launched in November in Katowice and Warsaw, allowing ING customers in Poland to quickly and easily withdraw cash from an ATM without needing to insert their card.
Financial institutions and retailers are looking for a variety of methods to deliver flexible payment options for their customers. Beyond NFC-enabled devices, NCR has implemented or introduced proof of concepts using contactless cards, 2D barcode transactions, and one-time PINs for ATM transactions alone.
The contactless-card enabled machines permit ING customers with VISA and MasterCard debit contactless cards to initiate fast cash withdrawals by holding their card near the ATM reader. Upon a confirmation of their PIN code, customers will have the choice of a cash dispense in common “fast cash” values.
