ATMIA FORMS NEW COMMITTEE GROUP FOR BANK ATM DEPLOYERS

by PaymentsJournal 0

Sioux Falls, SD USA, January 13, 2016. The ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) today announced that it has formed a new committee group specifically for financial institution ATM deployers. An estimated 45% of U.S. ATMs are operated by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Yet, opportunities to network with their ATM channel peers, in a non-competitive environment, regarding issues that uniquely affect FI operators are rare.

As a trade association focused on the ATM industry, ATMIA addresses on daily basis issues surrounding branding relationships (risk/liability), ATM fee transparency, money laundering, security, cash handling, ATM fraud, regulatory burdens, and many others. The Financial Institution ATM Deployers Forum will offer ATMIA’s many FI members a venue to discuss the challenges of their unique environment and how others are dealing with them.

Participation in one of its many regional and global committee groups is a valuable benefit of ATMIA membership. However, even if your bank or credit union is not yet a member of ATMIA, you are invited to participate in a meeting of the new Financial Institution ATM Deployers Forum – to get a better sense of how involvement in ATMIA committee groups can benefit your organization.

“Regional and community financial institutions probably have the most to gain from ATMIA membership,” says ATMIA U.S. Executive Director, David Tente. “Best Practices, online training, EMV migration updates, and regulatory alerts – all focused specifically on the ATM channel – are just a few of the resources available to all of our members. Add to that the networking and collaboration benefits of committee participation, and it provides our FI members with immense value.”
