Tokyo, August 25, 2017 — Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions, Corp. (“Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions”) today announced that it will start a new ATM Managed Services business, which will provide a comprehensive service, from machine procurement and installation to operation, monitoring and maintenance, in response to the increasing need for ATM outsourcing among financial institutions in Thailand, aiming to expand its ATM-related services business in that country.
In Thailand, more than 60,000 ATMs are currently in operation, the second largest number in the ASEAN region. The operation and management costs of ATMs are a heavy burden for financial institutions, and demand for outsourcing the asset holding, installation and operation of ATMs is rising as institutions seek to reduce costs and focus on their core business. The industry is already looking to shared ATMs as a cost-cutting measure.
Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions is installing 8,000 Automated Deposit Machines (ADMs), including cash recycling ATMs, which is the top share of installation units*1 in the Thai market (approximately 80% of the entire market). Since it entered the Thai market in 1990 with its cash dispensing ATM dedicated to withdrawals, Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions has been introducing ADMs and cash recycling ATMs. The company has supported the development of the Thai financial infrastructure for over 25 years.
*1 Results are accurate as of August 2017 after investigation by Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions.
In 2015, Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions established a local subsidiary in Thailand, Hitachi Terminal Solutions (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (“Hitachi Terminal Solutions Thailand”), which has built a sales and service system in Thailand and is strengthening contacts with its customers, particularly financial institutions, while making efforts to understand diversifying needs and solve challenges. Not only does the company expand sales of cash recycling ATMs, as the precursor in the industry, it is also expanding the maintenance services business by supporting more than 1,000 ATMs.
In entering into the ATM Managed Services business, Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions will cooperate with Hitachi Payment Services Private Limited (“Hitachi Payment Services”) of the Hitachi group, which provides payment services mainly in the Republic of India (“India”). Hitachi Payment Services has extensive experience and results in managing approximately 65,000 ATMs, including deposit and cash recycling ATMs, the largest number of managed ATMs in the Indian market. Hitachi Terminal Solutions Thailand will provide its services by tapping its know-how in ATM Managed Services operations as well as its dedicated tools and systems.
In addition, by utilizing its track record and expertise in cash recycling ATMs, which are offered by Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions worldwide, as well as the maintenance services infrastructure and system provided by Hitachi Terminal Solutions Thailand, Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions will establish the foundation of its ATM Managed Services business in Thailand. Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions will continue to satisfy diversifying customer needs cooperatively as the Hitachi Group, harnessing its track record and expertise (such as the number of installed cash recycling ATMs) to provide high value-added solution services and contribute to improved efficiency and service quality at financial institutions.
