BIBD gets Wincor Nixdorf biometric ATM tech

Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) is deploying biometric ATM technology and software from Wincor Nixdorf.

The Islamic financial institution in the sultanate in Southeast Asia is the first bank in Brunei to introduce biometric-enabled ATMs from the Germany-based technology provider. Wincor Nixdorf has installed similar systems across Asia Pacific, including India and Cambodia. "The trial period for the ATMs is regarded as a success and we will begin to deploy the biometric systems over the coming months," says Javed Ahmad, managing director at BIBD. "The technology allows customers to use the biometric ATMs with a bank card, but their finger print identification can now replace the traditional use of remembering and then inputting a number password."

The seven ProCash 8000 biometric-enabled ATMs will be deployed in November. In order to ensure the new systems are available around the clock as well as its existing ATM installed base, BIBD has adopted Wincor Nixdorf's ProView software. The software will monitor the entire ATM network primarily to minimise downtime from technical glitches as well as to proactively prevent fraud, such as skimming, at the ATM.
