If NCR prevails, it can seize market share from rivals, said Richard Crone, a Silicon Valley financial technology consultant. About two-thirds of Cardtronics’ network of 285,000 ATMs is made by NCR rivals like Diebold Nixdorf and Hyosung. NCR will replace those ATMs with its own.
Advanced ATMs that feature interactive video and other services have become more essential as COVID-19 has shuttered bank branches, Crone said. ATMs lets consumers continue to withdraw cash and make other transactions.
