WHO WE ARE
Spark ATM Systems was established in 2005 and, over the course of 16 years, became the leading independent ATM deployer in South Africa. In January 2017, Cardtronics plc (Nasdaq: CATM) acquired Spark ATM, marking Cardtronics’ entry into the South African market.
Cardtronics was acquired by NCR in August 2021, a leading software- and services-led enterprise provider in the financial, retail, and hospitality industries. NCR (NYSE: NCR) is the #1 global POS software provider for retail and hospitality and the #1 provider of multi-vendor ATM software.
NCR is a leading ATM manufacturer, and a large portion of the global Cardtronics network is comprised of NCR devices. It was, therefore, a very easy fit in terms of company culture. NCR is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and has 36,000 employees globally.
