Inlaks, a foremost ICT infrastructure and systems integrator in Sub-Saharan Africa, and its partner Hyosung TNS have unveiled five ultramodern next-generation Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) to revolutionize banking services in Africa. Inlaks unveiled the highly advanced ATMs at its Roadshow-themed Self-Service Innovation Summit, in Accra, Ghana.
The five latest ATMs designed by Hyosung are Monimax 5600ST, Monisafe 500, Monimax 8600T, Manivalue 100, and Monimax 8800.
With advanced technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) components, one of the major features of these ATMs is the mobile contactless solution that enables customers to withdraw cash by simply tapping the ATM NFC reader with the bank-enabled NFC card or smartphone. Such innovation has become highly important in an era of continuous innovation where transactions without physical contact have become necessary.
Addressing participants at the programme, the Chief Executive Officer, Inlaks, Africa Operations, Kyari Bukar, highlighted the need to efficiently address banking customers’ complex and evolving challenges at a low cost.
“Inlaks prioritizes customer needs by offering solutions that improve user experience. In the process, we reduce cost, maximise efficiency and productivity in service delivery. We will continue to invest in quality services and spearhead innovation for growth, and impact. Through this, we will improve financial inclusion through innovation’’.
The emerging contactless technology and the increasing need for digital banking services have propelled banking to an era of seamless cash withdrawals by customers from ATMs in a much faster, more secure, convenient, and fully contactless manner. Additionally, these ATMs accept and process cash in an online real-time manner which is three times faster and more efficient than a human teller. The event also featured ATM demonstrations by Inlaks Infrastructure Business Unit, Technical engineers who provided insights into the working process of the ATM machines.
