Dear Sandra,

What a month….

As the economy continues to open up, and we return to life beyond the pandemic, the cost of using cashless payment methods is becoming clear. Businesses around the country that were quick to adopt cashless payment methods are now passing on the costs to their consumers. This is particularly the case for small and independent businesses that have limited profit margins.
Within a matter of days into March, the importance of cash as a reliable, accessible, and secure method of payment for all Australians has been made clear. The tragedy of the floods experienced by Queensland and New South Wales has demonstrated the importance of reliable cash as a means to ensure payment security. Mobile ATMs have been dispatched to inundated areas, ensuring businesses can continue to operate.
ATMIA’s message to our members during the floods has been about bringing members together to help solve a common problem. In a coordinated industry effort, ATMIA has coordinated an appropriate industry response with our members working together to assist with providing access to cash in these flooded areas.  This industry has been proactive with its response helping communities in need with emergency cash drops in flooded towns. Please take some time out later in this newsletter to follow some amazing industry responses to these affected flooded areas.
Moving forward, It gives me great pleasure to announce, Gavin Napier is back in 2022 chairing our Strategic Direction Committee teleconference forum. We encourage members to join us on 30th March at 4 pm Sydney time, as ATMIA provides a global insight into the industry and addresses any industry issues and an open discussion for any action plans for this dynamic industry. 

Hot topics to be addressed at this forum include:
  • ATMIAs international and domestic updates.
  • The RBA's insight re:  Cash Distribution Survey
  • The RBNZ  RBNZ-Future of Money-Cash System(Te Moni Anamata)-
  • Industry response to floods in NSW & QLD
Please feel free at any point to contact if you require us to resend the dial-in details to this forum.
Again we encourage all industry stakeholders to join the celebrations of ATMIAs 25th year anniversary and be part of the ATMIAs biannual industry event for this region. The Next-Gen ATMs & Payment event will be held in Sydney on 7th & 8th December.  Undoubtedly, this two-day event will be the ATM industry’s major event for this region in 2022.

Industry response to the floods in NSW and QLD
Triple H Technologies is delighted to support the National Australia Bank and the Lismore Community by deploying the NAB Bank-in-a-box (BIAB) over the last 24 hours.

The BIAB has  “Meeting” & “Sales” modules that simulate a mini-branch and allow NAB Staff to interact and continue to assist customers face-to-face whilst flood-affected banking facilities are restored.  

The “Transaction Module” has an ATM and business deposit device which provides cash withdrawal/deposit, cheque deposit functionality, and bank balance enquiries.

Separately, Triple H is deploying a mobile ATM solution for NAB – establishing an alternative point of presence for access to cash.

Triple H will continue to assist banks and their customers in the coming weeks whilst Lismore and the surrounding areas recover from the floods.

Emergency cash drops for flooded towns.

MAR 4, 2022 — 
Jason Bryce

Cashless payment systems are down in many flood-hit communities throughout Queensland and NSW leaving businesses and consumers unable to buy and sell food and essential goods.

ATM and cash transport companies are making extraordinary efforts to get additional ATMs and more physical cash (notes and coins) to affected areas to ensure that shops can remain open and people can make purchases.

Prosegur chartered a helicopter to deliver cash to Casino and northern NSW towns after roads around Murwillumbah and from Toowoomba, Moorooka, Nerang and Coffs Harbour were all closed.

"Casino and Byron Bay needed cash for ATMs and financial institutions had no internet," said Andrew Nathan, Prosegur Australia's Commercial Director.

"All road routes to these sites from were closed so we secured a helicopter charter from Gold Coast late Wednesday afternoon.
"We worked with all parties to secure resources for the flight, process an emergency order for both branches and liaised with a major financial institution to provide escorts from helipads to branches for delivery."

Armaguard staff have gone above and beyond normal duties to get cash quickly to flooded towns.

"I’m proud of our team who ensured communities were supported even in the midst of a natural disaster," said Mick Cronin, CEO of Linfox Armaguard Group.

"One example is the swift transportation of cash from our Brisbane branch to Byron Bay."

"Working closely with the authorities to ensure our team was safe, our staff traversed the devastated countryside to ensure businesses could operate, and residents had access to cash."

"We have implemented a Business Continuity Plan in impacted areas, we are working with banks, fuel distributors and retailers to support communities, and I’m pleased to confirm that the vast majority of services have been provided as planned. 

"Though many of our team have been personally impacted, we’ll continue to do whatever is needed to provide essential cash services," said Mick Cronin.

NCR Payments and Allpoint, (provider of ATM services) is working with Summerland Credit Union to mobilise temporary banking services at Southern Cross University (SCU) in flood-devastated Lismore in northern NSW.

The ATM will be free-to-use for all cardholders linked to an Australian Financial Institution. 

NCR is also working with Prosegur to arrange extra cash deliveries to ATMs and providing assistance to local businesses where ATMs are located. 

Next Payments (independent ATM network) has sent sixty Automatic Teller Machines to Brisbane for rapid deployment throughout flood-hit communities in south-east Queensland.

"We have acted quickly to ensure that ATMs are deployed in communities that need access to cash now," said Tim Wildash, CEO of Next Payments.

"In times of crisis, cash is reliable and we want to ensure that businesses and residents in flood affected communities can make purchases and get the goods and services they need."  Australia needs cash.
