Elan certifies NCR APTRA multivendor ATM software, allowing U.S. deployers to consolidate on a single ATM software infrastructure across their self-service fleets
DULUTH, Ga., May 13, 2013 – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) continued to expand availability and usability of its multivendor software today, as one of the leading providers of payment processing services, Elan Financial Services, certified NCR APTRA software on its network for multivendor environments. According to research from Retail Banking Research (RBR), NCR is the worldwide leader in multivendor ATM software.
Elan’s network drives more than 33,000 ATMs for financial institutions across the U.S., many of whom operate mixed-vendor fleets comprised of ATMs from NCR and other manufacturers. Elan certification of APTRA Edge for multivendor environments will help its financial institution clients.
Consolidating on a single software application enables financial institutions to project a consistent and rich consumer experience across their self-service networks. In addition, a multivendor environment helps financial institutions streamline their development and support operations by not having to maintain and enhance multiple, separate delivery infrastructures for each new function or service that they offer.
The country’s largest financial institutions have enjoyed the benefits of multivendor ATM software for years. However, according to NCR estimates, only one percent of U.S. financial institutions with less than $50 billion in assets have installed multivendor software applications.
“NCR APTRA Software delivers optimum performance and a rich customer experience to self-service devices, making everyday transactions easier for consumers,” said Joe Gallagher, vice president and general manager, Software, NCR Financial Services. “As we continue to prioritize the development and growth of our software platforms, it’s essential that we deliver key applications for use in multivendor environments. With certification on leading networks such as Elan, NCR multivendor software adoption is poised to grow.”
