NCR Launches the First-Ever India-Specific ATM

Friday 5 December 2003 16:01 CET | News

NCR Corporation has launched NCR EasyPoint 57i (ASAN), the first-ever automated teller machine (ATM) conceived and designed specifically for the Indian market.

ASAN will enable banks in India to give many more account holders access to ATMs without incurring huge capital or operational costs. Based on technology designed to meet Indian infrastructural challenges, ASANs small size and low running costs offer banks a low total cost of ownership, safeguarding their investment even in locations with relatively low transaction volumes. ASAN is thus the ideal vehicle to offer cost-effective ATM convenience to the largely untapped non-urban areas, as well as to open up opportunities in newer urban locations such as corporate offices and factories, newly emerging multiplexes and malls and branch extensions. ASAN combines NCRs global expertise and insights into the Indian ATM market with consumer-research-based design inputs from the Industrial Design Center at the Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai (IIT-B). This enables the right look and feel in ASANs physical appearance and user interface. Extensive live pilots of ASAN have been carried out with some of the leading Indian banks to test its working in the Indian environment. Easy to deploy and user-friendly, ASANs unique NCR Intelligent Power Management (NIPM) system, with an integrated UPS, ensures that in case of power failure the ATM completes the ongoing transaction before shutting down, a useful application for areas with frequent and sudden power outages. NIPM can also help the ATM to be automatically switched off or on at pre-decided times every night and morning if located at sites that do not require 24-hour availability. ASAN supports wireless connectivity through GPRS and CDMA communication technologies for areas with poor conventional telecommunications connectivity. Its balanced pressure system and enhanced dust filtration mechanism facilitates deployment in non-air-conditioned environments.
