The expansion is the result of a cooperation between the company and local PBZ bank
The press office for IT Card, the owner of Planet Cash, said that the company started a cooperation with Croatia's Privredna Banka Zagreb. This resulted in a project in which Planet Cash will install 100 ATMs in Croatia. The machines will be available to PBZ customers as well as other bank card users.
IT Card's press release states that PBZ has almost 2 million customers, 200 branch offices and 700 of their own ATMs. Starting this year, the bank's card users will be able to use 100 additional Planet Cash ATMs just like their own bank's machines. The ATMs will also be available to customers of other banks, which will probably include users from Poland - Croatia is a very popular holiday destination for many Poles.
IT Card says that it will also install its first Planet Cash ATMs in the Czech Republic and Slovakia this year. - We want to foster new partnerships, expand our services and build a network in the whole region. I see a huge potential for further development of our company in Europe - said Jarosław Chrzanowski, IT Card group president. In Poland the company's machines are installed in BGŻ BNP Paribas and Getin Bank branches, as well as some cooperative banks. IT Card says that it is currently operating 6.2 thousand ATMs, including 670 recyclers.
