ITCARD a leading provider of banking services in Poland has launched the first biometric ATM shared network in Europe, called Planet Cash.
By the end of this year the company will have implemented a network of around 2,000
biometric ATMs using Finger Vein technology. This innovative biometric solution has been provided by Hitachi Europe.
Planet Cash is the second biggest ATM shared network in Poland, owned by ITCARD S.A. Currently Planet Cash has more than 500 ATMs already installed. This year, Planet Cash will install an additional 1,500 ATMs (from Wincor Nixdorf and Diebold) which will give the company an 11% share of the Polish ATM market.
Planet Cash ATMs will be situated in the most convenient locations across the country, including retailer chains such as Biedronka, Carrefour and Intermarché as well as in the central areas of the main Polish cities. The operator also already has ATMs located in the branches of a number of banks including Bank BGŻ.
“Finger Vein is a key technology in our company’s strategy. We’ve already been using this technology for ATMs in the cooperative banking sector,” Jarosław Chrzanowski, CEO at ITCARD S.A.
