The rapid growth in ATMs have made our life easy but it is not so for operators who manages it. ATMs are not owned by banks rather they are outsourced to managed service providers (MSPs) from purchasing to maintaining the machines. Many factors like the maintenance, cash replenishment, security and the passive assets In the ATM rooms are responsible for keeping the ATM active.
Typically, an ATM site consists of anywhere between 8 – 12 passive assets which include two air conditioners, two illuminated signage boards, an inverter/ UPS, a security camera and at least 8 – 12 light bulbs.
Currently, since the security and passive assets in ATM rooms are managed manually it results in greater physical interaction, increases the downtime and thus shrinks the profit margin of ATM operators.
