Inlaks, a popular system integrator in Sub Saharan Africa, has launched two new innovative Automated Teller Machine (ATM) models that offer high technological features including Near Field Communication (NFC), barcode, fingerprint biometric reader and other security features for seamless electronic banking services.

The new ATM models – MX 5600ST, MX 8600T AND MS500 created in conjunction with Inlaks partner, Hyosung TNS of South Korea, were launched at the Committee of e-Business Industry Heads (CeBIH) annual retreat held recently in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Babatope Dare, executive director, infrastructure business division of Inlaks, said, “ the new Hyosung self-service channels will be fully integrated by the financial institutions more than ever today to deliver absolute reliability, maximum efficiency and ultimate usability by the innovative terminals.”

“To capitalize on the new consumer demands, the Hyosung ATMs offer innovative features like Near Field Communication (NFC), Barcode, fingerprint biometric reader and many new security features,” Dare said.

He further mentioned that Inlaks has grown to becoming a trusted business partner to the banks to enable them attain the desired values on their investment on ATMs.

Inlaks has been at the forefront of supporting the cashless Nigeria initiative championed by the Central Bank of Nigeria through the deployment of over 6,000 Hyosung Automated Teller Machines to several banking institutions in Nigeria. The company has also partnered with CeBIH in implementing their vision to drive the adoption of electronic banking services through the right technologies, policies, standards, and innovation.

Speaking during the retreat, Chang-Hak Kim, vice president global business division of Hyosung TNS, commended Inlaks for blazing the trail in providing best-in-class self-service payment terminals in Nigeria and conveyed Hyosung’s enthusiasm to forge ahead with future partnerships with Inlaks and the banking community at large.

The e-Business industry heads applauded the innovative Hyosung ATMs following a first-hand experience of the MX 5600ST, MX8600ST, and MS500 models while attesting to the potential value that will be added to financial institutions nationwide once the new models are fully adopted by the banks.

The MX 8600T is a unique self-service terminal with cash deposit and recycling technology using the superior neo-Bills Recycling Module Technology. This sleek and slim model is easy to install and equipped with the latest technology like the contactless reader, biometrics, barcode reader, anti-skimming protection, touch screen, and functional keys. The deposit/recycler modules come with advanced bill recognition technology and an advanced transaction speed of up to 12 notes per second, up to five recycling cassettes and 300 notes per transaction.

MS 500 is the new Teller Cash Recycler which can be used as a deposit and recycler by tellers at the branch, or as a bulk cash deposit machine by customers. The Ms500 supports a large volume of cash deposits, with a note speed of up to 12 notes per second and a continuous deposit feeding allowing for even faster processing of deposits and note validation. The storage capacity is up to 21,000 notes using up to seven currency cassettes and an external transit cassette for secured loading and offloading of cash. It equally has self-audit capability and a 15 inches user touch screen interface. The Teller Cash Recycler is switched independent which means it can be connected to the core banking application without going through the switch thus reducing transaction cost.
