  NCR Brings Contactless ATMs to Poland with ING

  Waving card over reader creates a faster, more modern customer experience

Business Wire

WARSAW, Poland -- April 02, 2013

NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), a global technology company, has introduced one
of the world’s first contactless ATM environments, working with MasterCard and
ING Bank Śląski to bring the new technology to customers in Poland. This pilot
program was launched in November in Katowice and Warsaw, allowing ING
customers in Poland to quickly and easily withdraw cash from an ATM without
needing to insert their card.

Financial institutions and retailers are looking for a variety of methods to
deliver flexible payment options for their customers. Beyond NFC-enabled
devices, NCR has implemented or introduced proof of concepts using contactless
cards, 2D barcode transactions, and one-time PINs for ATM transactions alone.

The contactless-card enabled machines permit ING customers with VISA and
MasterCard debit contactless cards to initiate fast cash withdrawals by
holding their card near the ATM reader. Upon a confirmation of their PIN code,
customers will have the choice of a cash dispense in common “fast cash”

“Introduction of such technology means faster and more convenient transactions
for ING Bank customers. It is not only the first installation of this kind in
Poland, but also one of the first in the world,” said Barbara Borgieł-Cury,
head of Accounts, Payments and Cards Department at ING Bank Śląski. “We want
our customer to have access to the most modern, convenient and safest
solutions on the market. Contactless and mobile transactions are the future of
financial sector development in Poland and around the world. ING Bank Śląski
was one of the first institutions in Poland to offer cards with a built-in
contactless technology to their customers. And now, with the help of NCR, we
are one of the first in the world to offer innovative contactless-card ATM
dispense functionality.”

Today in Poland 70 percent of all cards are equipped with contactless
technology, and more than 50 percent of EFTPOS accept contactless
transactions. With the number of contactless transactions in the country
growing very rapidly the demand for more contactless options has increased.

“A contactless dispense transaction is approximately 25 percent faster than a
traditional withdrawal requiring insertion of the card into the card reader,”
said Ruth Fornell, vice president of Global Professional Services, NCR. “At
NCR, we are committed to making every consumer interaction an exceptional
experience. This means providing faster and more convenient options backed by
our world class security.”
