INTERNATIONAL. Global ATM software company, KAL, today launched the Retail Teller Machine (RTM): a revolutionary cashless ATM which is set to transform branchless banking forever.

The Times Square New York launch showcased KAL’s RTM – a machine that provides all ATM transactions including cash-out and cash-in - but has no cash inside the machine.

Operating at one tenth of the cost of bank ATMs, RTMs do not dispense cash. Instead they print a unique voucher which is then exchanged for cash inside the same store. The retailer is immediately compensated by the RTM which executes a back-to-back transaction. This remits the dispensed amount into the retailer’s bank account.
Running the same software as ATMs, the RTM provides a full range of banking services and even includes the ability for the customer to video conference with a bank call center.

This means no more expensive branches, regular maintenance or armored services. With the lightweight RTM, it’s simply a case of plug and go.

KAL’s CEO, Aravinda Korala commented: “We believe the RTM is one of the most important products ever to be introduced to the self-service banking industry. With significantly decreased running costs, banks can now ensure they have a presence wherever their customers are. Most excitingly, it offers a cost effective way to open up banking services to millions of people around the world who do not have easy access to their banks. The patented process of the RTM also provides an exciting new opportunity for retailers to work closely with their banks in providing convenient and safe access to banking services.”

INTERNATIONAL. "Saudi regional leadership amounts to exploitation of a window of opportunity rather than reliance on the assets and power needed to sustain it. That window of opportunity exists as long as the obvious regional powers - Iran, Turkey and Egypt - are in various degrees of disrepair."
