Diebold Nixdorf and NCR Corp. held earnings calls in February, but there wasn't much to love in the companies' revenue reports. Those were our top two stories last month; readers also liked our coverage of an ATMIA conference workshop on ATM physical attacks. Here's the run-down of February's finest reads:
What would it mean to ATM deployers in the United States if the Trump administration's "America First" policy were to extend beyond new tariffs on Korean-made washing machines to include tariffs on Korean-made ATMs and parts?
In a workshop at last week's ATMIA conference, attendees learned how Cash Connect and 3Si were able to stop chasing the same ring of thieves out of one major city after another, and made sure their next destination would be the city jail.
At a morning workshop during the ATMIA conference, the audience heard unsettling statistics and anecdotes about the rising number of ATM physical attacks in the U.S. They also heard about new and existing solutions that can help them avoid becoming another statistic or anecdote.
Diebold recently held its first earnings call since the departure of Andy Mattes. Aside from his absence, the Q4 presentation was about the same as the previous three, showing slow ATM sales, modest gains for software and services, and ongoing integration costs.
In a late afternoon earnings call on Feb. 8, NCR Corp. delivered the final word on disappointing earnings results for 2017, and described some of the "transformational efforts" the company is now undertaking in order to change up the storyline in 2018.
