BlueOrange Bank deploys Latvia’s first contactless card ATMs
Software and service provider BS/2 has installed the first ATMs in Latvia that support contactless cards. The ATMs are provided by Diebold Nixdorf, and are for a local bank, BlueOrange Bank (formerly known as Baltikums Bank).
Five ATMs with contactless card readers are now operational in Latvia’s capital, Riga.
Egita Ermane, head of e-commerce office of BlueOrange Bank, says BS/2 “has many years of experience and supplies a truly German quality for Diebold Nixdorf ATMs and delivers diverse support at the European level”. Ermane adds that the bank considered proposals from a number of providers before choosing BS/2.
“In addition, our new partner acted as an operative, reliable consultant, able to take into account individual wishes.” The bank is now offering “the most advanced technological solution” in Latvia.
The bank’s contactless cards ATMs support all of the main functions, Ermane says, such as withdrawal and deposit of cash, getting the report on the last ten transactions and obtaining information on the card balance.
BS/2 Latvia has four service centres in the country and serves more than 450 ATMs. It is a subsidiary of Penki Kontinentai Group.
