Why we excelled in ATM deployment, says Inlaks
Inlaks Computers Limited, a leading Information Technology and System Integrators in Nigeria, has said its relationship with financial institutions in the provision of affordable shared service platform of Automated Teller Machine and power support services is traceable to its excellence in the industry.
According to the Executive Director, Infrastructure, E-business and Managed Services arm of Inlaks Computers, Mr. Rajiv Bhatnagar, through the company’s innovative products and high service delivery, Inlaks has established a long-standing partnership with financial institutions.
These, according him, include First Bank of Nigeria Plc and United Bank for Africa Plc, among others to create one of the largest ATM networks with maximum availability to its users in Nigeria. He said the partnership also ensures provision of adequate power solutions and backup as well as ATM/Inverter Managed Services.
Bhatnagar said with both institutions having large branch networks, Inlaks Computers hd created a service platform to accommodate next day resolution in areas of the far northern and eastern regions. “From statistics, these regions have shown longer ATM downtime as a result of geographically dispersed locations and recent national security challenges,” he said.
He also explained that as part of its determination to reduce the number of times a branch custodian evacuates a cash deposit machine, Inlaks has introduced the first model of Hyosung 8700 deposit and dispenser machine into the Nigerian market.
“The machine has five cassettes each for dispense and deposit to accommodate areas where cash handling are of priority needs. It is scalable to perform cash recycle operations when required without a change in machine.
“This is the first ATM of its type as other models have standard four cassettes. It also provides other benefits like wide format touch and screen and can be immediately configured to accept the any additional higher currency whenever it is introduced.” According to him, “We are proud to have designed and customised our products with Hyosung, acknowledging the dynamic nature of our environment. We must be ahead if we must survive.”
