A next-gen ATM for an evolving industry
March 22, 2012 | by Suzanne Cluckey
Changes occurring in the ATM industry today may seem more evolutionary than revolutionary. The industry's most recent advances give the impression of being deliberate steps forward, rather than the giddy leaps of its unruly boom years.
This doesn't mean that today's next-gen advances are any less remarkable, though. Diebold Inc. is one of several companies that are currently giving us an idea of the business opportunities that lie ahead — and how the ATM's next transformation will look and work.
This month at ATMIA US 2012, the company showed off its Flex Performance Series ATM, which incorporates a number of advanced self-service functionalities, from cash acceptance to check deposits to full cash recycling, all in a single machine.
"It's a very high volume high capacity machine that's very well suited to handling most or all of the self-service transactions that an institution would have," said Mike Shirk, director of deposit automation strategy for Diebold Inc.
To hear what more Shirk has to say about how machines like the Flex Performance can shape the future ATM landscape, take a look at our video demo below.
