BS/2 and JSCB “Kapitalbank” Expand Self-Service Network in Uzbekistan
JSCB “Kapitalbank”, the largest commercial bank in Uzbekistan, concluded a cooperation agreement with BS/2 company. This document focuses on developing self-service channels for improving customer access to financial services.
The Memorandum was signed by Sardor Ismailov, First Deputy Chairman of the Board at JSCB “Kapitalbank”, and Idrakas Dadašovas, Chairman of the Board at Penki Kontinentai Group (BS/2). The ceremony took place during the PLUS-Forum “Fintech, Banks, and Retail” in Tashkent on June 21-22.
BS/2 and JSCB “Kapitalbank” have already cooperated on joint projects. Recently, the bank purchased 150 modern ATMs DN Series, choosing the DN200H model. This device won the prestigious Red Dot Award for its outstanding industrial design. The new ATMs will replace payment kiosks and other types of ATMs to ensure maximum reliability for cash withdrawals and deposits.
The devices will be equipped with the latest BS/2 software, such as Payments.iQ including FCX.iQ module, and VCP-Lite from Diebold Nixdorf. These solutions enable customers to exchange currency at ATMs, pay loans, top up accounts without using a card, and pay for telecommunications services.

The upgraded product preserves the outstanding qualities of the previous version, bringing additional advantages.
