Events & Conferences


Mellon Bulgaria recently introduced the latest in ATM technology to potential customers in Sofia, featuring the advanced ATMs from Korean manufacturer Hyosung TNS. Renowned for their leadership in markets such as the US, South Korea, and Indonesia, Hyosung ATMs are among the fastest growing in the industry.

Pioneering Technology in Bulgaria

Mellon Bulgaria highlighted the innovative "recycling" feature of Hyosung ATMs, a novel concept for the Bulgarian market, supported by software from KAL, the world’s leading provider of ATM software. This functionality allows the machines to dispense money deposited by customers, significantly enhancing efficiency and reducing the frequency of cash replenishments. Currently, such ATMs are rare in Bulgaria, marking a significant advancement in the country’s banking technology.

Strategic Partnerships and Market Integration

Building on successful integrations in Poland and Greece, Mellon Bulgaria sees potential in expanding Hyosung’s presence in the local market. The company has opted not to certify the machines for handling deposits of Bulgarian levs, focusing instead on the upcoming transition to the euro. "We believe it’s not worth the investment to certify these machines for Bulgarian levs, given the imminent euro adoption," said Borislav Arsov, Managing Director of Mellon Bulgaria. The devices are already certified for euro transactions by the European Central Bank, ensuring a smooth transition when the euro is adopted.

Leveraging Advanced ATM Software Solutions

Mellon Group incorporates KAL’s advanced ATM software application (K3A) and ATM management system (KTC). These solutions are compatible with hundreds of ATM models from over 40 manufacturers, including Hyosung. This approach ensures flexibility in choosing the best ATM hardware to meet current and future business needs.

With the introduction of Hyosung’s industry-leading Series 8 ATMs, Mellon Bulgaria is adopting cash recycling technology to streamline productivity and drive greater efficiency in self-service operations. These innovations will enhance branch cash operations and allow personnel to focus on high-value tasks, providing a more personalized customer service.

Insights from Hyosung TNS Europe

Jay Won, Managing Director of Hyosung TNS Europe, shared insights on the company's expectations for the Bulgarian market. "This is a promising new market for us. Our focus is on gaining the trust of Bulgarian clients, which will naturally drive sales and market growth," said Won. He emphasized the industry shift from dispensing to recycling ATMs, a trend Hyosung has pioneered for over a decade. This technology is key to optimizing maintenance costs, particularly in regions like Europe where labor costs are higher.

Looking Ahead

As the financial landscape evolves towards a more cashless model, cost optimization remains a priority. The recycling feature of Hyosung ATMs addresses this by reducing operational expenses, aligning with broader trends in the European market.


Mellon Bulgaria’s event in Sofia marks a significant step in bringing cutting-edge ATM technology to the Bulgarian market. With the support of Hyosung TNS, Mellon Bulgaria is poised to lead in financial innovation and efficiency.
