The Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), has selected NCR Corporation's Edge open multivendor software application to run on its network of more than 13,000 ATMs.
The deal is the first of its kind in China, marking a milestone in transitioning ATMs from the OS/2 platform to Microsoft Windows. Under the agreement, APTRA Edge will run on different brands of CEN/XFS-compliant machines in the bank's installed base of ATMs.
APTRA Edge reduces development times and operating costs and provides a platform to generate revenue by enabling ATMs to behave and be controlled the same way as other modern, Web-based channels. APTRA Edge is designed to integrate to the bank's wider business enterprise through APTRA's multichannel, multitool and multivendor capabilities.
"NCR has established a long-term business partnership with ICBC over the years. This decision made by ICBC to deploy our APTRA Edge software has further grown our relationship. I congratulate ICBC on becoming the first bank in China to deploy a nationwide multivendor software solution," said CK Chan, general manager of NCR's Financial Solutions Division in China and Hong Kong.
