Travelex Begins Operating OKI's RG7 Currency Exchanger at Two Stores at
Narita International Airport
- Capturing business opportunities previously lost while enhancing user
convenience and satisfaction -
TOKYO -- July 25, 2013
Travelex Japan, one of the largest merchants specializing in currency
exchange, today announced the installation of OKI’s RG7 Currency Exchanger at
two stores at Narita International Airport. Both machines will be operational
by the end of July 2013.
Travelex began operating the RG7 Currency Exchanger located at Terminal 1 on
July 19; the second machine, located at Terminal 2, is slated to begin
operating July 26. The RG7 Currency Exchanger currency exchange machine is
capable of simultaneously recycling deposits and accommodating withdrawals
between Japanese yen and multiple foreign currencies, thereby automating
exchange tasks and accelerating the pace of foreign currency exchange
transactions. The deployment of these two machines follows the installation of
the RG7 Currency Exchanger at the Haneda Airport International Terminal
Station; the latter machine began operating March 4.
Currency exchange counters serve individuals with a broad range of needs,
ranging from customers who are in no particular hurry and require a clerk to
provide information on amounts and denominations to customers who simply want
the fastest possible transaction. The RG7 Currency Exchanger allows Travelex
to meet customer needs more precisely, boosting customer convenience and
satisfaction and capturing business opportunities that would otherwise be lost
during peak hours.
Moving forward, as part of efforts to enhance the convenience of currency
transactions, Travelex and OKI plan to capitalize on the partnership and
deploy additional machines.
*The RG7 Currency Exchanger installed at Narita International Airport
handles Japanese yen and three foreign currencies (Euros, US Dollars, and
Chinese Yuan) and operates in two languages, Japanese and English.
About the RG7 Currency Exchanger
The RG7 Currency Exchanger is an integrated currency exchange machine capable
of recycling deposits and withdrawals in multiple currencies bilaterally
(i.e., Japanese yen into foreign currency and vice versa). Developed on the
basis of the ATM-Recycler G7, a machine capable of handling deposits and
withdrawals in multiple currencies, the RG7 Currency Exchanger is also capable
of simultaneously handling deposits and withdrawals of mixed banknotes with
differing attributes, including size, thickness, and materials, for up to 128
denominations. Users can deposit banknotes in multiple currencies in a single
transaction and choose the denomination of the target currency.
