S2 Systems, a global provider of integrated e-business solutions for the banking and financial services market, announced that Adirondack Trust Company will deploy and leverage S2’s OpeN/2:ATM-IN-A-BOX to expand its ATM network.
S2’s powerful transaction system replaces Adirondack’s switch for driving and monitoring ATMs, and will also provide a migration path into Internet banking, wireless and other emerging online technologies.
OpeN/2:ATM-IN-A-BOX is a flexible and reliable transaction engine capable of handling high volumes and supporting diverse applications. A robust, full-featured EFT engine, ATM-IN-A-BOX supports all current ATM transactions and easily adapts to support evolving services such as online bill payment, smart card transactions and other Web-based services.
“OpeN/2:ATM-IN-A-BOX enables banking and financial services organizations to capitalize on the growing use of ATMs as versatile, multi-service revenue generators,” said Jeff Chick, S2 Systems vice president and general manager, the Americas. “Our innovative ATM transaction processing solution enables companies such as Adirondack Trust to leverage technology while staying ahead of the innovation curve in today’s wired marketplace. We look forward to helping Adirondack Trust with its present and future e-business initiatives.”
“We are very pleased with S2’s proven transaction processing technology and their other capabilities as well,” stated Ned Wait, Adirondack Trust VP of IT. “As we move forward by expanding our ATM network to engage new markets, it is critical that our solution partner possess the domain knowledge and experience to meet our evolving needs.”
Financial institutions benefit from the growing popularity of ATMs by improving customer satisfaction, prospering from the fee income ATMs generate and reducing branch operating costs. The continuing growth of ATMs is also fueled by the machine’s capability of providing consumers with a broad array of value-added services.
