i-design, the leading developer and supplier of ATM and self-service marketing solutions for the banking industry (enabling banks and ATM owners to run both their own targeted marketing campaigns and third party advertising), is pleased to announce the purchase of 3,000 additional software licences by existing customers, Barclays Bank plc ("Barclays") and Cardtronics, Inc. ("Cardtronics").
This significant purchase of additional licences sees the number of ATMs running i-design's software increasing in three key territories, the UK, USA and Canada.
Cardtronics, the world's largest non-bank ATM owner, has acquired 1,500 licences to cover additional US based ATMs and also to cover the recent win by Cardtronics Canada Ltd to exclusively manage convenience chain store 7-Eleven's Canadian ATM estate. The software's unique platform independent capability will enable Cardtronics to manage marketing campaigns centrally for its different customers across multiple vendor software applications.
In the UK, Barclays, one of the world's largest banks, has further acquired an additional 1,500 licences for the roll out of i-design's software onto new branch and retail based ATMs following last year's deployment onto 4,000 ATMs and kiosks.
Ana Stewart, CEO of i-design, commented:
"The purchase of additional licences by two of the largest operators of ATMs and ATM managed services worldwide sees i-design significantly increase licensed ATM numbers in three key territories. This once again validates our belief that our marketing solution provides unrivalled technological, customer engagement and commercial advantages by providing ATM owners throughout the world with the flexibility and tools to unlock new ways of communicating and engaging with their customers. Combined with our unique ability to generate new revenue streams from self-service estates via our third party advertising service, our solution continues to be an extremely attractive proposition"
