SIOUX FALLS, SD -  ATMIA today launched the annual Peter Kulik Innovation Award to celebrate innovations in the global ATM industry at the first US ATM conference since lockdown, which takes place in Las Vegas this week. 

Following the success of the first certifications for Next Gen ATM products and services, attention shifts to ways to encourage a new wave of innovation in the ATM industry. The new award recognizes any new way of using technology that improves the way the ATM industry works by solving an important industry problem, improving the security of the ATM ecosystem, or enhancing the user experience at ATMs.

“Next Gen ATMs are really the brainchild of Peter Kulik and the growing integration of ATMs into the mobile-digital world is now becoming an unstoppable movement,” explained Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA and Chairperson of the Consortium for Next Gen ATMs. “The new award pays tribute not just to Peter as a thought leader, but to all future winners of the award who will continue to push forward the boundaries of innovation.”

  • Reach: Works for many ATMs, benefits multiple stakeholders, and is usable in various markets.  Inspires further innovation across a range of potential applications
  • Visibility: Enhances the role of ATMs for consumers in payments and banking

This award is named for Peter Kulik, who chaired ATMIA’s Next Gen ATM Architecture committee which developed the original industry RFI (Request for Information) and vision for a Next Gen ATM and oversaw the creation of its first blueprint. Peter previously served as Chair of the ATMIA ATM OS committee, Chair of the ATMIA Cybersecurity Committee, and was Technical Editor for the industry’s first Cybersecurity Best Practices.  He has spoken at more than 20 ATMIA conferences and webinars in the US and Europe since 2002, and has served as Chairman of the ATMIA Executive Board since 2018.
