NCR Corp. is adding two-sided printing capability to its SelfServ automated teller machines.
The Duluth, Ga., ATM maker said last week that the technology is now standard on its SelfServ 20- and 30- series models in North America.
Two-sided printers can print transaction details and check images on both sides of a receipt.
Envelope-free ATMs are becoming more common, using image systems to accept check deposits. The machines display images on their screens and typically also print images on receipts for customers to verify.
NCR said that putting images on receipts makes them much longer than receipt slips with just transaction details; two-sided printers can generate receipts up to 73% faster than ATMs that put images on just one side, and they use up to 45% less paper, it said
By making two-sided printing "a standard offering on NCR SelfServ, we will help our customers improve uptime and availability" and "reduce paper waste and supply-chain costs," Michael O'Laughlin, the vice president and general manager of NCR's financial services unit, said in a press release.
