ATM 2.0 – Video Teller Machine


ISTANBUL – Ziraat Bank, the oldest bank in Turkey,  introduced a new Video Teller Machine, or VTM, which enables clients to use private banking services with a Ziraat Bank representative through a video link.

video_teller_machine_01The VTM technology is aimed for small towns which do not have Ziraat Bank branches or big shopping centres where there is a need for a lot of employees.

The system recognizes the users from their fingerprints and then lets them get all the private banking services they would have in a “normal” branch.

It can also be used by the non-customers for money transfering and paying bills.

erdoganvtm Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey tried the system and the newly printed Turkish Lira (formerly known as New Turkish Lira).

One of the greatest features of the system is that VTM service points will allow customers to process their banking needs on 365 days a year, 24 hours a day through a video link with a customer representative of Ziraat Bank. Hope we will also see this technology in Sweden 🙂

    Oh wonderful, how lucky we are.

    And the security issues are not that important. Specially in Turkey, where fiddle, swindle, fraud and their other brothers and cousins are literally not existent.

    And last but not least, the costumers are so careful and critical and observing every aspect with Argus eyes.

    How was it in so beautiful turkish? Boş veeeeer.

    • Let’s try to look at the bright side of the life 🙂 This techology will let people in remote locations get in touch with their banks more easily..
