Polish Payment Processing Leader chooses Auriga software to manage Polish ATM fleet.

Auriga, a global software provider for the omnichannel banking and payments industry, today announced ITCARD, the Polish leader in processing ATM and electronic payment transactions for banks and financial institutions, as a new partner for its multivendor ATM management solution. This will enable ITCARD to optimize operational and technology costs while improving systems availability and the time to market for new services.

The solution will be delivered by Auriga Poland, which was formed following Auriga’s acquisition of the majority shareholding in Polish banking technology leader F1 Solutions.

ITCARD is the biggest financial transaction processing company in Poland and supports all areas of payment management across cards, ATM and POS terminals. The company operates ATMs and cash recyclers for major banks as well as running its own Planet Cash ATM network with over 4400 devices across the country.

In the running of its ATM network, ITCARD wanted to achieve better performance and greater cost effectiveness by migrating to one software platform that could work across its ATM fleet. The company chose Auriga because its ATM management software solution offers true multivendor ATM management and is customised for the Polish market through Auriga’s central and Eastern European subsidiary, Auriga Poland.

In a multi-year programme, the whole fleet of around 7,000 ATMs in ITCARD service will be transitioned to the Auriga solutions supported by Auriga’s team based in Poland.

Commenting on the new contract with ITCARD, Vincenzo Fiore, founder and CEO, Auriga said: “We are delighted to be realising ITCARD’s vision for modernising how their large multivendor ATM fleet is managed and developed. Partnering with Poland’s leader in payment processing is testament to how our international growth strategy is succeeding with our investment in Auriga Poland and their local capabilities in software development and support.”

ITCARD will be deploying Auriga Poland’s TPS suite, which is hardware agnostic, highly adaptable and complies with the NDC/DDC environment/infrastructure, manages all self-service operations optimally with full insight. The software is designed to accelerate innovation through personalised customer experience and adaptable development technology. It provides full support for processing all transactions and processes including withdrawals, cash-in, goods and services, etc., as well as cash management and active monitoring.

Jarosław Chrzanowski, CEO, ITCARD said: “In developing our ATM network, the priority was to achieve better efficiency and cost effectiveness by moving to a single software platform that could support the entire ATM fleet. We chose Auriga because of its advanced ATM management software, which enables effective management of equipment from many different vendors. We are convinced that this decision will contribute to increasing the efficiency of our ATM network, and cooperation with Auriga will allow us to better meet the expectations of our customers. The first 250 recyclers of the 7,000 devices processed by ITCARD are already operational, using software provided by Auriga”.
