SBI to install 6000 ATMs
State Bank of India is planning to install some 6000 ATMs under a total outsourced model. The bank may decide if found necessary to add 20% more ATMs to this number. The bank has sought proposals from service providers who would be responsible for the procurement, installation and maintenance of these ATMs - cash dispensers essentially - and their maintenance. They will do so for a minimum period of 7 years. The bank wants the ATMs that are capable of running multi-vendor software and Endpoint Security Solution (EPS) implemented by the bank in all its ATMs without any hardware changes. The service provider will also be responsible for testing, integration, commissioning and coordinating the implementation of the MVS and EPS, in the CDs. The machines will also have to be interfaced with BASE 24 switch.
