HCL has partnered with Korean ATM manufacturer, Nautilus to set up customised and localised ATMs across the country with an aim to penetrate the rural hinterlands. Under this agreement, the company would import the ATM machines from Nautilus and would localise them for the use of the Indian market.
These machines will have special power back-up and would be rugged in nature to meet the need of the rural environment. One of the features is that the company will introduce to the ATMs is the use of vernacular languages. “There is a lot of demand for upgrading technology among cooperative banks. We would be providing the ATM machines to these banks, which will have localised features making the machines user-friendly,” George Paul, vice-president, marketing HCL Infosystems said.
