Unicaja Banco will install ATMs in 19 villages of Almeria province which have no bank branches, after being selected as a result of a public call for tenders organized by the Diputación de Almería (Almeria Provincial Council) within its Plan against Financial Exclusion. This initiative falls within the bank’s aim of offering a better and broader provision of services, from the perspective of proximity to customers, also in rural areas and in villages with a reduced number of inhabitants.

 

The first ATM already in operation, of the 19 to be installed, is located in the village of Laroya. Other four ATMs are scheduled to be installed during August, and the rest will be ready by the end of the year.

 

The implementation of this new service, under the Plan against Financial Exclusion of Diputación de Almería, has been presented today at an event in Laroya attended by the Commercial Manager of Unicaja Banco’s Eastern Andalusia Division, Antonio Rodríguez, as well as by the Chairman of Almeria Provincial Council, Javier A. García, the Councillor for Finance, Álvaro Izquierdo, and the Mayor of Laroya, Dolores Moreno.

 

The new ATMs are state-of-the-art devices equipped with new software, and with agile and customized navigation, and they allow to carry out the most usual transactions, such as cash withdrawal and deposit, payment of bills, fines and taxes, as well as card configuration and contactless technology. Additionally, a specific module has been developed for Almeria Provincial Council to check and manage bills and taxes, so that everybody, customers and non-customers, can check, pay and manage them.

 

This action developed together with Almeria Provincial Council falls within Unicaja Banco’s aim of offering a better and broader provision of services, from the perspective of proximity to customers, also in rural areas and in villages with a reduced number of inhabitants. In this sense, it should be mentioned that the bank has a multi-channel strategy for customer service, both on site and online. In fact, in addition to its large network of branches, it has other alternatives such as agencies and financial agents, ATMs and remote banking technology solutions (web and app).

 

Unicaja Banco features a proximity and retail banking model, close to its customers, and it aims at favouring the economic boost of the areas where it operates, and, in particular, of Almeria and its province, where it is the bank of reference and with which it has a special link.
