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.
The future for our industry is almost here, but a desired future never just arrives to knock on your door. The only future that arrives uninvited is the default future that happens if you do nothing. The ATM industry, on the contrary, has put in an unprecedented effort, involving 369 companies in 54 countries, to future-proof itself – the reward will be a new wave of innovation, production and growth in our industry for years to come.
