Banco de la Provincia Implements Wincor Nixdorf ATMs

The Argentinian Banco de la Provincia forged contracts with Wincor Nixdorf to deploy 280 ATMs, one hundred of which equipped with cash and check deposit modules (CCDMs) by 2012. The bank started operating more than 140 Wincor Nixdorf ATMs in 2010, and the systems have been leading the availability ranking of the two Argentinian network operators ever since. Those new systems that are equipped with cash and check deposit modules can be used by bank customers to deposit banknotes. At the beginning of next year – since that is when the network operator plans to provide the necessary software – the bank will also automate check deposits by migrating them to self-service systems.
