NCR Corporation, a global technology company, has announced that Alliance & Leicester will be installing automated teller machines across its entire branch/store enterprise with its Intelligent Deposit 'No Envelope' deposit functionality for cash and check deposits.

260 NCR Personas Intelligent Deposit automated teller machines (ATMs) will be available in all 250 Alliance & Leicester (A&L) stores, which will be completely refurbished by the end of 2007. A&L will also use NCR’s Aptra software, second-line maintenance and installation services.

The open plan stores feature a self-service zone where ATM and phone banking service points are available, as well as a customer welcome desk and traditional teller counters. A&L’s welcome desk staff is available to help customers and to identify individuals who could benefit from additional A&L products and advice.

Tim Neal, senior manager for A&L’s retail network development, said: Customers like being able to self-serve for a wide array of quick, routine transactions and find the NCR intelligent deposit ATMs very easy to use. This frees up our highly experienced staff to meet customer demand for specialist advice on a wide range of mortgage, savings and insurance products.
