Dear Member,
Our industry is fighting back strongly against the pandemic. Frontline staff kept ATMs operational and supplied with cash throughout and we salute them. Meanwhile, ATMIA and our members fought and won the global PR battle against the anti-cash lobby who mischievously singled out cash as a vector of transmission. Then ATM transaction volumes started to rise again. Innovators in our industry then brought out technologies and signage to reassure customers we were doing everything we could to maintain safe usage of our terminals during the pandemic. We are developing a new global protocol for ATM hygiene which will be signed off within weeks. I believe the global ATM industry has shown commendable maturity, courage and resilience in dealing with the immense economic and public health challenges being faced. But that’s not all.

ATMIA’s Consortium for Next Gen ATMs is growing robustly as the industry rallies together to future-proof our technology for a new generation through the blueprint for an API App model for ATMs. 369 companies from 54 countries are participating in the project, which is on track to deliver the world’s first certified Next Gen ATM by early in Q4.

Be proud and strong – our industry is rising again. Thank you for your support of ATMIA; I  assure you that you won’t ever be sorry for coming on a journey with us through the crisis and into a positive future, together.

Warmest regards,

Mike Lee

Featured IAD Report

2020 International Africa IAD Study

The 2020 International IAD (Independent ATM Deployer) Study for Africa paints a big picture of opportunities for retail ATM deployment across varying emerging markets on the big African continent. It is the latest research report in ATMIA’s global series of IAD studies.

The content is both deep-diving and wide-ranging, covering key economic and financial services indicators like GDP, inflation, banked population, bank data, ATM, cash use, and digital money use data, as well as social factors which impact on opportunities for future investments in ATM deployment, such as population size, urbanization rates, literacy rates, corruption, governance and political conflict issues, and even environmental considerations. But the data sets across multiple countries don’t overwhelm the reader because the author blends them seamlessly into a well-narrated analysis.

Back by Popular Demand: ATMIA Members Can Post White Papers, Case Studies FREE in September

It’s been a tough year and the ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) understands that. To provide extra support for the membership, ATMIA is again offering members ‒ no matter their level of membership ‒ the added benefit of being able to post white papers, case studies and infographics to the site for FREE in September.

“Typically, we only extend this offer once a year,” said ATMIA Global Director of Member Services Sharon Lane. “But this is certainly not shaping up to be a ‘typical’ year and we wanted to do something to provide extra support to members.”

ATMIA Launches an ATM and Cash Revival Plan for COVID-19 and Beyond

ATMIA announced the launch of an ATM and Cash Revival Plan for an ATM industry hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have listened to our members who told us all their COVID-19 pain points in our recent survey and we are now committed to a series of actions aimed at starting an industry revival,” explained Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA and Chairperson of the Consortium for Next Gen ATMs.

The advocacy plan has two prongs, a Cash Revival Plan and an ATM Revival Plan.

ATMIA Celebrates Industry Response to Keeping Access to Cash Safe During COVID-19 Crisis

The ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) has released a new slideshow celebrating the steps taken by the industry to raise awareness of cash access and safety throughout the COVID-19 crisis. The slideshow highlights some of the champions who keep frontline services going during the pandemic.

The slideshow highlights a wide range of activities which manufacturers, ATM deployers and others have taken, including a helpful graphic provided by James Shepherd-Barron, son of the inventor of the ATM and graphics supplied by Grant Victor Companies. Actions featured range from good deeds in support of first responders, blog posts and factual messages to help promote cash and ATM safety, as well as the introduction of industry sanitizing solutions.

Next Gen ATMs

Next Gen ATMs on track to deliver to the industry the first certified Next Gen ATM

The big news about Next Gen ATMs is that this future-proofing project is on track to deliver to the industry the first certified Next Gen ATM in Q4, turning the blueprint of a future API App model for ATMs into a physical reality everyone can see and touch. A technology-based industry like ours cannot afford to fall behind the curve. Instead, we’ve come together as an industry, across all its sectors, working hard since 2017 to turn this transformational vision into reality. The online self-certification system is being built and we have 10 companies pre-registered, readying themselves to certify their Next Gen ATM products and services by meeting all the specifications in the blueprint and approved Implementation Guide.

The Next Gen ATM architecture is very flexible and agile, containing a healthy mix of standard interfaces, vendor-specific interfaces and provider-specific interfaces. It is designed to enable the deployer to own and enrich the ATM customer experience, providing for fast, seamless service for a new generation of users.

GET INVOLVED - GET NOTICED: Become a Next Gen Champion!

News From ATMIA Members Worldwide 

Standard Bank supports transformation in conveyancing

Standard Bank is fully committed to transformation. As such the Bank views the legal requirements for the advancement of transformation as a minimum (a floor) rather than the maximum.

Over the recent past, Standard Bank has displayed an exemplary record in this regard and has not faced any legal issues pertaining to transformation.

Still, Standard Bank has continued to discuss, internally, what more we can do as a business to give expression to deeper and more fundamental transformation. This is the context in which Standard Bank engages external stakeholders such as regulators, businesses, individuals, interest groups and NGOs.

Social distancing solutions

The iconic queues that immediately spring to mind when we think of people standing in line are surely the images of our historic elections in 1994. We were all bursting with pride as we emerged as a democracy – with a global superhero as our president, our beloved Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

The queues were, in fact, so long that the Independent Electoral Commission extended the elections to a 4th day in areas such as KZN, Transkei, Ciskei, Venda and Gazankulu as they acknowledged that the waiting periods could be attributed to their own difficulties in managing the rush of voters to polling stations. In this way  they managed to ensure that the elections remained free and fair. Oh, the joy and relief we all felt when we could finally open the door to majority rule and democracy.

Today, in the time of the virus, we could never imagine such an overwhelming, unifying event. What a privilege it is to hold the memory.
