Building a New Branch or Remodeling an Existing Space: Hardware Considerations

Outdated fleets that provide slow service, high downtimes, and poor consumer experiences should be left behind when planning and designing a new branch space. Considering upgraded hardware for your fleet will position your branch space for success with smoother operational efficiencies and higher uptimes.

Reliable first and second-line service – ATM/ITM up-times are something your consumers count on when stopping by a branch. Service is also an important consideration for security patches, branding and marketing screen updates, and quick responses to skimming attempts. Choosing a hardware and service partner with fast, reliable service is imperative to keep your fleet running smoothly and your branch visitors satisfied.

Remote Management Solution (RMS) - Implementation of RMS for hardware provides financial institutions with up-to-the-minute data on their ATM/ITM and TCR fleets, allowing for hands-off incident management and software updates. Higher up-times result in more profits from transaction fees, more repeat business from your consumers, and new acquisitions as word spreads of your fleet’s reliability and functionality.

RMS also makes cash monitoring more efficient, allows the installation of software patches without leaving the office, and monitors service incidents in real-time. FTSI’s RMS ATM availability software gives financial institutions a detailed look at their fleet’s status, helping them to make informed management decisions.

ITM best practices – The future of banking lies with self-service options for consumers. With NCR’s ESS, financial institutions can connect their ATMs/ITMs directly to their core for more operational efficiency and a better, self-serve consumer experience. Also consider that ITMs are most successfully located in the drive-up, remote kiosks with high visibility, or inside 24-hour branch vestibules. ITMs are also shown to be highly utilized when they are distributed prominently across the retail network and in proximity to a recently closed branch site.
