Wincor Nixdorf Expands Installed Base with Global Cash Access
to 900 ATMs for High-Demand Gaming Industry
"Our ongoing evaluations have shown that Wincor Nixdorf ATMs are extremely reliable and consistently deliver the greatest possible uptime within the industry.”
Wincor Nixdorf Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of total IT solutions for the banking and retail industries, has finalized an agreement with Global Cash Access Inc. (GCA) to provide additional cash dispensing ATMs for GCA’s deployment in leading U.S. casinos.
Under the agreement Wincor Nixdorf will provide GCA with 45 ProCash 1500xe cash dispensing ATMs, increasing GCAs installed base of Wincor Nixdorf ATMs to approximately 900. One of the largest technology providers for U.S.-based and international casinos, GCA also utilizes Wincor Nixdorf’s ProCash ATM application software, ProView multivendor ATM monitoring software and PC/E Terminal Security.
“We have provided cash dispensing solutions to GCA and its customers for several years now, largely because our robust ATM technology performs well within the high transaction volume setting of the gaming industry,” said Alan Walsh, executive vice president of Wincor Nixdorf’s U.S. banking division. “An ATM within a casino will easily perform 15 to 20 percent more transactions per day and dispense many times more notes than the same ATM in a retail bank setting. Wincor Nixdorf ATMs are present in many of GCA’s gaming accounts because the quality of our engineering ensures maximum uptime and overall performance under these tough circumstances.”
Vince Johnson, ATM operations manager of GCA, added that security, reliability, and pricing are key factors in their deployment of Wincor Nixdorf ATMs.
"If an ATM goes offline in a casino, it could lead to an immediate loss of revenue for our customer," he said. "Our ongoing evaluations have shown that Wincor Nixdorf ATMs are extremely reliable and consistently deliver the greatest possible uptime within the industry. We also value Wincor Nixdorf's software, which manages most of our entire fleet with extreme reliability and security."
Wincor Nixdorf’s 1500 series ATM is a compact system in Wincor Nixdorf's ProCash product family. It is ideal for locations at which space is limited and the focus is on cash dispensing. Featuring up to four cassettes, the ProCash 1500xe guarantees maximum availability in high-frequented off-site locations, as well as banks.
