“To prevent the ATM industry from experiencing its own imminent ‘future shock’, we need to actually implement this unprecedented global consensus for a new API App blueprint for future ATMs, linking over 3,2 million ATMs, in great locations, to about 5 billion roving mobile phones worldwide,” Lee commented.
Six steps of a ten-step plan to implement the blueprint have now been completed, with the Consortium currently engaged with its roadmap for next gen ATM standards to ensure there is sufficient interoperability for the new ATM ecosystem.
The next gen architecture will be officially launched at ATMIA’s in Madrid this October.
