FirstBank launches next-generation ATM

FirstBank has launched the FastTrack ATM in Africa that is completely touchless. The FastTrack ATM, also known as the touchless solution, allows customers to use a mobile phone to conduct transactions using the bank's quick codes or mobile banking app, in advance of visiting the machine, according to a report in Sun News.

When the customer arrives at the FastTrack ATM they complete the transaction by tapping a contactless near field communication card on the ATM to complete the transaction and withdraw cash.

The FirstBank FastTrack ATM is the first of its kind in Africa.
