NCR Corp. (NYSE: NCR) said it has been awarded professional service contracts from Bank of China to develop new automated teller machine applications running on the bank´s multivendor software platform, NCR APTRA Edge, to support the bank´s initiative in implementing paperless ATM transaction flow and its Financial Integrated Circuit Card (IC) 5.0 project.
The bank of China´s ATM network went live with the NCR APTRA Edge platform last year and most applications on its ATM network have completed the initial phase migration process to be compliant with EMV1 (PBOC 2.02) standards. As part of the project, NCR will provide software application development, system analysis, support services and related training programs.
Consolidating on a single software application enables financial institutions to project a consistent and rich consumer experience across their self-service networks, regardless of hardware manufacturer. 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. NCR is the world´s largest supplier of multivendor ATM software.
