Ukraine-based Privatbank on Wednesday announced the acquisition of 3,100 ATMs from Germany-based Wincor Nixdorf International GmbH to strengthen the financial institution's self-service business, the bank says in a statement. Privatbank will deploy the machines in branches in Cyprus, Georgia, Latvia, Russia and Ukraine and will phase out its current network of 4,700 ATMs in favor of the new Wincor Nixdorf machines, the statement says. Privatbank also announced plans to test ATM-based advertisements that promote bank-related products and services. The bank also wants to test a customer-feedback system on the ATMs. Privatbank says each ATM will feature monitoring software that enables the bank to address network problems. Privatbank did not return a call for comment by CardLine Global.
