About Banktech

The Banktech Group is a collection of related businesses that combine to deliver specialised payment and technology solutions across a range of industries and geographies.

Banktech was established in the ATM industry in 1991. Originally supplying ATMs and parts to banks, building societies and credit unions, in 1998 Banktech became the first independent (non-bank) ATM deployer with the launch of the CashConnect ATM Network. Today, Banktech Australia owns and operates more than 2,500 ATMs across hotels, clubs and casinos across Australia.
