No longer a pipe dream thanks to Novum in Poland
Cash withdrawal and deposit
While developing multivendor application software and various software
solutions in-house for the cooperative banking sector in Poland, Novum
also serves the Polish cash recycling market with KEBA's evo systems.
Last year Novum developed and implemented an innovation
for ATM operation that is extremely valuable, especially
during a global pandemic. In Trend is pleased to talk
with Zbigniew Forenc, Vice President at Novum.
Novum and KEBA have been working together for
years now. First, give us some insight: are banks in
Poland finally convinced of the advantages of cash
Yes, most definitely. Thanks to the collaboration between
Novum and KEBA, solutions are quickly being implemented
that did not previously exist in the cooperative banking
market in Poland. The automation of cash handling is absolutely
essential for efficiency reasons and in response
to government regulations requiring machine cash sorting
Moreover, the amount of cash in circulation in Poland is
increasing dramatically - not least due to the COVID-19
pandemic, which underscores the need for automated
cash handling. The aim is to reduce costs and create
more time for consulting-based services.
Last year Novum introduced a real innovation to
cooperative banks in Poland that makes touching the
ATM obsolete. Tell us about this innovation.
In 2020 Novum launched the “Smart Karta Service” in
the cooperative banking sector. We developed the mobile
banking application “Our Bank”, which allows customers
to use a bank’s cash recyclers exclusively via
the mobile application of that bank. With Smart Karta,
we provide the necessary software for contactless operation
of ATMs - both for withdrawals and deposits.
