AGS installs 50,000th automated teller machine from Wincor Nixdorf in India
"Make in India": Local production begins following shipment of the first 1,000 system components
"In the past ten years, we have been able to provide all leading banks with best-in-class ATM technology thanks to our strong relationship with AGS in the critically important Indian market," Eckard Heidloff, CEO and President of Wincor Nixdorf AG, told banking representatives in Mumbai. The support provided by AGS and Wincor Nixdorf enabled the banks to set up a stable self-service infrastructure, Heidloff noted. "The start of production for the new ATM model marks the beginning of a new chapter for us. Our collaboration lends new momentum to the Financial Inclusion Initiative introduced by the Indian government and facilitates the provision of financial services, particularly in rural areas," Heidloff said.
Ravi B. Goyal, Chairman and Managing Director of AGS Transact Technologies, said: "Our company is a reliable, highly capable technology partner for banks for over a decade now. This collaboration, under the “Make in India” initiative backed by the Government of India, will help us to provide our customers with a tailored, robust product, thereby enabling them to provide a payments service infrastructure in the remotest parts of India."
The locally produced ATMs, once installed, will help increase access to financial services in rural and metropolitan areas of India. Wincor Nixdorf and AGS Transact Technologies have been driving forces behind the dynamic growth of India's ATM market. An analysis conducted by the British market research firm RBR shows that Wincor Nixdorf ranked among the top three in the market with an installed base of about 23 percent of ATMs in 2014. RBR projects that India will become the world's second-largest ATM market, behind China, by 2020. The key reasons for this expansion are rapid population growth and financial inclusion projects initiated by the Indian government.
