To give financial institutions the opportunity to deploy efficient intelligent deposit solution
NCR is developing its patented two-sided thermal (2ST) printing technology standard on all NCR SelfServ 20- and 30-series ATMs for North America, to establish NCR SelfServ as the complete intelligent deposit solution on the market.
NCR said that through intelligent deposit, check images are printed on the ATM receipt to validate the deposit, which are at least double the normal length of a receipt that requires additional service visits by the financial institution to replace paper rolls.
According to NCR, its new 2ST printing technology enhances the efficiency of the printing process by allowing simultaneous printing on both front and back side of a receipt, label or other media. 2ST printing also provides environmental benefit, using 45% less paper. NCR recently added 2ST printing in combination with a dual-roll printing feature, that reduces paper use and increasing cost savings to the ATM deployer.
All North American financial institutions ordering NCRSelfServ 20- or 30-series ATMs will receive integrated 2ST printers based on network support. Certifications for this technology among the major networks are scheduled, and most should be complete by the end of 2009 for US APTRA Edge v3.01.
Michael O’Laughlin, vice president and general manager of NCRFinancial Services, said: “Two-sided printing is the new standard for receipt printing around the world, and we believe printing on both sides of the receipt is a natural extension of any intelligent deposit program. By making 2ST a standard offering on NCRSelfServ, we will help our customers improve uptime and availability, reduce paper waste and supply chain costs, and give consumers a better – and complete – intelligent deposit experience.”
