EDINBURGH, Scotland-Thursday 12 September 2019 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Market-leading ATM software company KAL is launching Kalignite Hypervisor, a game-changing new product for the retail banking industry that solves the long-standing, billion-dollar problem of enforced ATM hardware upgrades.
