In 2017, VTB increased the number of self-service machines with the built-in recycling function to 1,800, which is twice above the previous year's level, the bank informed.
The ATMs with the recycling function employ a closed cycle: the cash funds loaded by one client can be dispensed to another client bypassing cash collection procedures. In 2017, such ATMs saved the bank RUB 90 million due to optimization of operating costs by reducing the number of scheduled collection operations alone.
The united network of VTB's self-service machines reached 15,000 at the end of 2017, including more than 6,000 multi-functional ATMs that enable clients to withdraw or load cash.
