“For Barclays, this represents an opportunity to leverage a whole new level of convenience – never before experienced in Botswana – to attract new customers,” said Alan Anderson, Business Development Director at Bytes Managed Solutions. “From a brand perception perspective, the Bank will rightly be seen as an innovator and technology adopter in an environment where this remains unusual and far from the norm. We have been a longstanding strategic partner of Barclays Bank of Botswana and the installation of the ATMs paves the way for other NCR solutions to be introduced to the Bank, particularly in branch transformation, where kiosks and teller cash recyclers add even more convenience for customers.”Proof of concept and demonstration of the ATM began midway through 2013. The bank’s representatives were able to see the ATM in action at last year’s ATMIA in Cape Town and at a recent NCR Branch Transformation event.
