Batopin Bancontact CASH Point
In Belgium the use of cash is in free fall. We have reached a point where the current ATM network is no longer optimal. The distribution of ATMs has not kept up with the evolution of new ways of living, working, shopping and moving.
Batopin is an initiative of the banks Belfius, BNP Paribas Fortis, ING and KBC, launched in early 2020. With a bank-neutral and bank-independent ATM network, Batopin wants to optimize access to cash in Belgium : banks remain aware of the important role of cash in our society.
A balanced ATM network takes into account, among other things, where people live and work, where they use cash (shopping centers, hotels and restaurants, etc.) and how they travel (public transport, car, bicycle, on foot).
Batopin’s new Bancontact CASH points are located in places intuitively perceived by the citizen as being the ‘right’ place to withdraw or deposit cash. In other words: the right number of ATMs in the right places.
Dialogic advices Batopin in all its communication, as much towards the institutional world as towards the media or the citizens.
