“It’s a monumental achievement to trace the technological intricacies behind the invention of ATMs and how the whole universe of digital banking subsequently opened up,” commented Mike Lee, CEO of ATM.
Batiz-Lazo, who is Professor of Business History and Bank Management at Bangor University (Wales), explained that Cash and Dash was 10 years in the making and could not have happened without the financial support of the British Academy, Hagley Museum and Archives, and the Charles Babbage Institute at the University of Minnesota.
“The book is based on solid archival and contemporary research in the USA, UK, Sweden, Japan, Mexico, South Korea and many other countries to offer a comprehensive view of the globalisation of financial technologies,” the author said. “This task has greatly benefited from the support and encouragement of ATMIA’s members, many of whom shared their time and recollections to help interpret key moments and aspects of this technology, its current challenges, and its likely future.”
