MCB Islamic Bank offering Diebold Nixdorf’s biometric ATMs in Pakistan
Pakistan bank MCB Islamic Bank Limited has partnered with German fintech firm Diebold Nixdorf Technology to provide biometric-enabled cash dispensing technology and software to the country’s unbanked population.
The new technology, which features biometric authentication and is powered by Diebold Nixdorf’s software, will enable the bank to drive connected commerce, improve the consumer experience, and deliver a seamless experience across its entire network.
“As financial institutions expand their reach within the region, we will continue to serve as a true partner to provide industry-leading technology and services to shape the future of consumer transactions,” said Habib Hanna, Diebold Nixdorf managing director of the Middle East. “We are committed to creating collaborative partnerships with financial institutions, such as MCB Islamic Bank, to enable broader access to financial services and provide best-in-class consumer touchpoints for every market.”
MCB Islamic Bank is opening several new branches across the country with each location equipped with Diebold Nixdorf’s latest self-service biometric platform and software.
The bank aims to reach the more than 50 percent of people in Pakistan who currently lack access to critical financial services.
“Our goal is to provide our customers with the most reliable and advanced technology to ensure they receive positive experiences at our bank every time,” said Sufian Saeed, head of digital banking and alternative delivery channel at MCB Islamic Bank Limited. “Diebold Nixdorf’s superior self-service technology and software enables us to remain at the forefront of retail banking and deliver the best quality services to our customers.”
In addition, local distributor TouchPoint Limited will provide full maintenance services for the new ATMs.
