Pakistan’s MCB Islamic Bank Ltd. is expanding access to financial services with cash dispensing technology from Diebold Nixdorf, the company said in a press release.

The Shariah-compliant FI is opening additional branches across Pakistan and will outfit each using the Diebold Nixdorf self-service platform and software.

The new technology, equipped with biometric authentication, will allow the bank to offer a seamless customer experience that provides increased security and convenience, the release said.

Local distributor Touchpoint Ltd. will provide maintenance services for the ATMs.

“Our goal is to provide our customers with the most reliable and advanced technology to ensure they receive positive experiences at our bank every time,” said Sufian Saeed, head of digital banking and the alternative delivery channel at MCB Islamic Bank. “Diebold Nixdorf’s superior self-service technology and software enables us to remain at the forefront of retail banking and deliver the best-quality services to our customers.”

MCB Islamic Bank was established in September 2015 through the divestiture of the existing Islamic banking business of MCB Bank Ltd. The new Shariah-compliant institution comprises a network of 34 branches in Pakistan.
