As modern technology continues to evolve and people demand quicker access to more services, it’s crucial for service-providers to deliver on their consumer’s elevating expectations. Nowadays, your customers are constantly on the move. To avoid the issue, to reach this mobile audience, and to meet the changing needs, requirements, and demands of the 21st century, some businesses are deploying wireless ATMs, armed with functional machine to machine technology, to engage with their customers virtually anywhere and at any time.
Machine to machine (M2M) technology can applied to ATMs to make make them more efficient for businesses and to allow more useful services and attractive benefits for consumers. That’s because the modern ATM, when properly equipped, is much more than a mere cash dispenser. As well as offering an enhanced consumer experience, the added advantage of M2M communications allows ATMs to further engage with consumers, to promote brands, to improve inefficient processes, and much, much more.
As consumers require greater mobility, accessibility, and expanded services, ATMs and self-service kiosks continue to capture a larger percentage of service delivery. Enabling your ATMs with M2M technology will provide you with a powerful tool to prevent theft, to increase revenue, to provide convenience, to track and report on revealing usage patterns, to increase efficiency, and more.
M2M communication provides smart cash tracking and can help to prevent theft.
The management of cash is possible the most important attribute of an ATM, as this is the primary reason why people visit these machines. When M2M technology comes into play, every ATM can know the exact amounts of money stored in, deposited into and withdrawn from every other ATM within a network. This can produce cash movements that follow usage patterns and keep every machine properly stocked.
A major problem for ATM service providers is theft. Installing a camera as a preventative measure is simply not enough to deter would-be thieves. Integrating M2M technology into an ATM can reduce the machine’s vulnerability and will protect against potential security threats. Furthermore, implementing M2M technology will provide live monitoring and real-time alerts. However, although the prevention of physical threats is useful, the most significant result when M2M communication is integrated into ATMs may come from the detection of additional fraud.
M2M communication provides increased efficiency for businesses with detailed reporting.
The Internet of Things has become a powerful resource for businesses looking to analyze their customer’s usage patterns. This certainly applies to banking customers using ATMs. In a day and age where people’s activities are becoming increasingly quantified, the same applies to ATMs. For example, ATMs can report both to each other and to a centralized system to report when there is an issue involving usage.
Taking advantage of the new technology which exists in modern mobile ATMs will enable your business to reach temporary and inaccessible markets which will ultimately allow you to service more customers. M2M technology is a powerful force that has already begun to take the world by storm. And, it is predicted to continue to expand. Just think, it was not too long ago that quick access to cash and services via ATMs revolutionized the world of banking. Now, M2M communication is taking the ATM to the next level. With secure wireless connections, you can put new ATMs in even more places—a booth at the farmer’s market, a tent at a parking lot sale, or even the mall in a semi-permanent kiosk. The possibilities for ATM Solutions using M2M technology is nearly endless!
