Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 30 /Trend/
AtaBank OJSC started offering mobile ATM service AtaMatik in Shamkir region - a service designed for social workers, teachers and other governmental employees, as well as ordinary citizens living in remote areas in order to provide flexibility in the use of debit cards, a bank report stated on Friday.
AtaBank OJSC previously tested a pilot project for mobile ATM service AtaMatik in Shamkir and Gadabay regions; now it will be operating on a regular basis for making the bank closer to social workers in the region.
The features of AtaMatik are not limited to the ATM service. Thanks to necessary equipment installed in AtaMatik vehicles and to the bank employees, citizens can easily carry out all banking transactions in the vehicle.
"The main objective of the project is providing banking services in the regions, where there are no ATMs. Special vehicles having strict safety measures and ATMs installed in it were ordered to meet the need. The vehicles are provided with generators for uninterrupted power supply and lighting and with other necessary devices for easier use of the service, " the report quoted the Director of Business Development Department at AtaBank OJSC Elnur Osmanov as saying.
A pilot project was carried out in Duyarli village of Shamkir and Zakhmat village of Gadabay regions. Considering that the service was of great help for citizens and gained sympathy in the short time, the number of vehicles equipped with ATMs increased to four. The AtaMatik service is planned to be expanded to the remote villages of Shamkir, Gazakh, Tovuz and Gadabay regions.
