CINCINNATI – First Financial Bank announced today plans to upgrade and replace more than 135 ATMs in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. The enhanced ATM systems will deliver better service and more value to First Financial clients.

First Financial is partnering with NCR (NYSE: NCR), a global leader in financial self-service, to offer ATMs featuring NCR’s top-of-the-line Scalable Deposit Module (SDM) technology. The new systems will provide clients many features and benefits, including:

  • Envelope-free deposits

  • Cash and check itemized deposits
  • Front and back of check image captured
  • Check images on receipts
  • Easy-to-read touch screens
  • Deposits accepted until 8:45 p.m. for same-business-day processing

“Our bank customers have seen their deposit volumes nearly double as they roll out their no envelope deposit ATMs. Clearly, consumers and small businesses enjoy the speed and convenience of anytime self-service banking,” said Michael O’Laughlin, senior vice president, NCR Financial Services. “We’re pleased to be able to work with First Financial to bring them our most advanced ATM technology.”

Crews have started to install ATMs across the region and all system installations are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
